Looks like my patience will soon be rewarded, I've got LS ultimate jumpers, J. Gilbert cigar indys, and J. Gilbert #4/black saddles all being shipping in the next week or so.

leathersoul is amazing.
cigar shell chukka is the way to go i think though, as cigar shell is hard to come by that is a superb classic makeup.

just to offer a counterpoint, and i don't know the circumstances of your displeasure, but i've had a couple of dealings with AoC and he's been very reasonable. absolutely would not hesitate to buy from him again.

Also never had a problem with Adam and found his communication quite exemplary. Shipping was prompt and answered my questions quickly.

With all due respect I have to agree with 100 yrs... I have bought 5 or 6 alden shoes from Adam at AoC and he is always been nothing but cordial, courteous and professionalism... i really enjoy working with him....

Adam from AoC has always been helpful to me - I look forward to buying more shoes from him

J Gilbert has cigar indys? I only see #8 on their website.

+1 to having had positive experiences with AoC. Obviously we can all have that one experience with a retailer that turns us off, but I've had two successful transactions and I'd say Adam's standards are quite high.

No idea what they have in stock, I did a pre-order last winter.

everyone is entitled to draw their own conclusions, and I would not dissuade anyone from purchasing from AOC. I can only speak to my experiences and how I will proceed with my own purchases in the future.

I think once the AF53 starts creasing, it's a fantastic-looking boot. I'd probably go with the AF53 out of those. In my opinion though, nothing really beats the Alden X J.Crew QB boot in color #8.

I am leaning towards choosing between the jumper and the AF53. I already have 1 CXL and 1 color 8, but I already have three cigar, including a PTB on crepe. The cigar chukka (as much as I like chukkas) seems like overkill at this point.
