Yes, vintage Florsheim imperial cordovans run tts. I had an awesome pair about 2 years ago. Equal in quality to 975.

All I can say is that my experience differs. TTS would have been huge.

Chiming in - I thrifted a pair of vintage Florsheim royal imperial longwings (not cordovan) and the size 9.5 (TTS) fit me perfectly versus having to go down to size 9 for my Alden 975. They are built like a tank and every bit as heavy as my 975's.

Wanted to get just a general consensus/opinion for a first color 8 boot I plan on getting once new years is over with. I'm on the fence between the Tanker boot from citishoes, or the standard 4060 CT boot. Ultimately, I will probably end up with both, but for the meantime as a first cordovan boot, which would you choose?

If I wanted more flexibility in terms of dressing up/down, I'd grab the 4060 first.  Can be worn with jeans or even the dressier side of business casual (and many would say a suit if done properly). But if just looking for a boot to wear more casually, I'd grab the tanker boot.

 

You should definitely get both as you said.  : - )

What size did you take in Grant and as compare with your Barrie size?

Those green LWB are fantastic, and excellent suede rotation. Tan suede PTB Would round out the collection. Congrats and enjoy!

After alot of opening and closing of windows, the Leffot website, and PayPal, I lost the battle of impulse control and dropped the hammer on the Chamois Daytrippers.

I'm such a child....smile.gif

 I agree with @budapest12 . That is the order I went in as well. 4060 was my first #8 boot then I got the tanker later on. 

 

It is hard to choose between them without knowing the rest of your collection and/or your intended usage.

I still want those. I'm hoping they are out of my size by now.

They are calling me too, but I have the reverse chamois wingtip boot on pre-order there so I have to stay strong.

They still have my size... :puzzled:

 

Seeing some family tomorrow and exchanging xmas gifts, if somehow I even up with some cash and they are still around I may have to pull the trigger. They keep tempting me and now seeing the in the wild pics on here is making it harder to hold back.

I really regret not pulling the trigger on those, they are going to be unreal. On my 2015 wish list.

What color?

 

My lists.

 

On order:

Cigar LWB (Alden DC)

 

Grail list:

Cigar SWB (w/sleek last)

 

That's it! I've been acquiring my Alden's on some sort of discount this past year.  Makes it easier to rationalize my purchases, lol. I would only pay full price for the above. I got the #8 975s with that Jcrew code, #8 shortwings on ebay, Some calf CTs from the Shoemart 2nds. They've all worked out. I suspect haunting this thread will get me some more Aldens on discount this year.

 

Happy new year all!
