I was watching a similar pair too - I have concluded there are too many of us in the 11.5 to 12 range to get any great deals.

I was wondering if anyone has the cordovan #8 indy boot from either Shoe Mart or this North River Outfitter version. If so can you post a photo or two? I'm having a hard time distinguishing the colors from the photos they post on their site.

 

Thanks

Great looking tassels!!

I was chasing LS and Leffot trying to figure out any chance to place a pre-order for Cigar tassels but no success.. Does anyone know who could stock or do a preorder on those ?

Shoe mart stocks cigar tassels

In general, for rare cordovan colors in "basic" models (tassels, LHS, PTB, longwings, chukkas), check the Alden stores (DC, NYC, SF). They tend to stock them, and if they don't have your size, they will put your name down for the next restock.

A couple of helpful hints. First, my Alden Chukkas always have a little heel slippage - I inserted tongue pads this week and there was no more slipping. Second, I found my regular leather soles to be slippery in certain weather conditions. I found these non-skid pads that work really well.

Subscribing to this thread could possibly end up being worse than reading TOJ or Epaulet daily...

 

...didn't intend on getting any Aldens until maybe Christmas.  But, already ordered some color 8 shell chukkas....

 

...and now eyeing shell LWBs...the question is, whiskey or cigar?  man...

Anyone need a great deal on snuff suede LHS in size 8. Just put these up at a great price:
