I would call TSM, Alden SF, Alden DC, and Alden Madison.  I haven't checked, but I'd bet one or more of those retailers have a list for that make-up.  It may take a while though.  Good luck and welcome to our forum!

Since there only a few pics to be found on the 379x  here are some comparison pics with my 8.5D Barrie 6 eye chukka and 8.5D Suede Indy

 

Nice looking NST D-OB!  Congrats and enjoy often in the best of health my friend...

Have a good weekend all!

Shell NST on 379x last with a crepe sole is quite the interesting makeup. I wonder which retailer that was originally done for? I don't recall that being offered by TSM (except on the seconds list).

I started doing some massive closet cleaning and posted up a bunch of shoes in the sales forums but now the hard part begins: What to replace them all with?

What are you keeping and what are you letting go?

I'm down to 3 LWBs (Ravello, King, Snuff), 2 Captoe boots (King, Cigar), snuff unlined PTB, chamois ranger moc and C&J Islay wingtip boot. If the TSM seconds chamois tanker boot I'm supposed to receive on Monday is good then I might cull the snuff unlined PTB as they get the least wear.

So far on the block is a Cigar LWB (sold already), Cigar NST, suede navy SWB, suede navy Indy, black shell chukka, Kudu LWB, Natural CXL Self Edge x LeatherSoul Conservation Boot, a Carmina split toe, and a Tricker's 2-tone LWB. I'm still considering posting up a couple pair of Rancourt and another pair of Tricker's, and a few more Alden (the tan calf Epaulet Alt Wien) possibly reverse chamois Indy and/or chukka, kid suede tassel, and one of either the #8 Naval Boot, #8 Plaza Indy, #8 NST Boot, or #8 Wingtip Boot). I've even got a brand new, never worn #8 LHS and black Alpine v-tip that I'm thinking about parting with.

Aldens I'm definitely keeping: #8 LWB, #8 ranger moc, #8 PTB, chamois ranger moc, AWW, Alpine v-tip, Alpine LWB, Alpine wingtip boot, snuff suede chukka, snuff suede moc, snuff suede ranger moc, snuff suede LWB, navy suede tassels, choco suede NST boot, whiskey SWB, whiskey Indy, and I'm probably leaving out some that I forget are even in my closet.

Maiden voyage of my Ravello boots. I managed to get the last pair in 9.5d and am so glad that I did. These may be my favorite pair of boots.d87a34023133acef99b6c63256801ba1.jpg

Man, sad I missed out on these nice Ravellos. Everyone's posting of the WT boot makes me jealous wink.gif Congrats!
