Anyone interested in a pair of 8.5D Alden 684s? I bought a pair from the NRO sale as an impulse buy and I'm looking to offload at-cost.

i stopped at Unionmade SF this afternoon and saw their natural CXL "Sloat" boot:

Sloat_Plain_Toe_Boot_in_Natural_Chromexcel_0.jpg

this is a REALLY nice boot in person, if one of you guys is thinking about getting a natural CXL boot, seriously consider. the neoprene/cork sole isn't visibly different from a leather sole. they're running out of sizes: they have 8.5 and 10.5, but nothing in between.

Does anyone know of a shop doing a cigar wingtip boot?  My boots got accidentally sold to another customer at Epaulet.

It's always funny to me how much i prefer the PTB in the "dover" pattern (the outer #4 and #8 ptb in this case) versus the traditional PTB blucher. To me it just adds another dimension and balance to the shoe.
I wish more alden retailers used the dover...

The #4 PTB on the left is Nassau blucher.

According to Alden of Carmel it looks like J. Gilbert Footwear in Seattle may have a #8 cap toe boot on plaza last.

My friend ordered these a few days ago.  They're supposed to be delivered on Tuesday and I cannot wait to see them in person.

Ran across these while scoping out the Moulded shoe site and blog (which isn't all that helpful). Thoughts, guys?

i notice only one thing that it's the wax lace 

Unionmade: Trubalance last, neoprene cork sole, 270 degree welt, standard welt you see on Indy boots, wax laces

 

TSM sells two Natural CXL boots: the one on the modified last and the plain toe Indy boot

Plain toe Indy boot: Trubalance last, 360 degree welt, leather soles, no footbalance heel, standard cotton laces

Modified last Natural CXL boots: similar to the plain toe Indy boot with exception of modified last and 270 degree welt

 

Shame they didn't stock a 6.5, those Sloat boots are gorgeous.
