Leffot in NYC ran a pre-order for the tobacco reverse chamois wingtip boot which is due in soon, I belive. (Which I am on)! I have a feeling there may be some units left to purchase. Keep an eye out on Leffot.com.

 

Thanks, tif. I'll keep an eye out on the Leffot page. Would love to pick up a pair of those!

Can't pull the trigger on anything for now.

dude, the sole wasn't very clear on my iphone when i checked earlier today.

commando sole is the tie breaker, let me know if you pull the trigger, these would work nicely into your rotation.

Thanks Mike. One of my favorite and more versatile pair, but for some reason, I don't reach for them very often.

Not seen those before MDV. That is a really nice look. Hey, is that a blade of brown grass I see?

Good Morning Fellow Member's.

I need some advice...

My wife is insisting on getting me a pair of Natural Boots for Christmas.

I am having a hell of a time picking between the Indy and PT both on the trubalance last. I can't decide.
I work in a business casual environment, Khaki's , Button up (Gitman Vintage, BB mostly) flannel/Wool pants... Jeans on Friday

Also quick question about big toe reference to Indy..My big toe goes a hair beyond the Moc Stitching.... I also have the 403 Jcrew and Jcrew Tan Indy... the Jcrew Tan indy fits great in 11.5D, but I find the 403 i am able to wear a thick wool sock or if need be two cotton socks.. I also know i can work with 11E in Trubalance and it feels similar to the 11.5D. Should I try the 11D?? I have also owned 11D in Barrie on Natural PTB and chukka that worked well but I use to get a pair every once in a while behind the ball of my foot.

I currently own the Jcrew Natural Cap Toe Boots, with commando sole. 11.5D Barrie Last....
My Wife should be receiving the PTB from AOS on Barrie last and Double leather sole. I happen to think the Trubalance last looks better.

Also is 11E slightly smaller than 11.5D in Length , Width and Interior room?

Jcrew indy 11.5d 6-7 wears



I am wearing timberland cotton socks.

I look forward to the responses.

great boots tampa.

JAB has shoe trees on sale for $8, but I'd prefer to pay more for the split-toe type to make sure they fit in some of my C-width shoes.  Do IRC that Alden's trees are made by Woodlore?

I saw these in person a couple of months ago when I stopped by Alden SF.....I am not typiaclly drawn to plain toe shoes or boots.....in fact I have purchased and returned a couple of different plain toe bluchers hoping that they would look better to me in person......however these looked fantastic and would definittely work in the setting you described......they had them in both smooth chamois and natural CXL.....to me the natural CXL on the waterlock sole made for a nice combination.....much sleeker than an Indy type boot.

It would be a great addition and they are REALLY tempting, but I need to slow down a little.  My wife said to me the other day, "You wear boots?"  The sudden emergence of wingtip boots have raised red flags!  Perhaps a nice Norwegian Split Toe (shoe) would be more furtive! Ha! :D
