Correct - LS just had the shortwing in ravello a month or two ago. I was one of the fortunate ones.

Awesome...lets see a pic out and about. I'm an 8 Barrie, so if anyone has anything close they want to move let me know. JT

I was curious to see if anyone would notice the venue. You are correct, it was the Bowl. The L.A. Philharmonic was performing Beethoven in honor of his 150th birthday.

Gentlemen, I have just received a pair of calfskin NST bluchers from Moulded Shoe.  This is my first calf Alden (everything else is CXL, Kudu, or suede).  The leather is very squeaky (as I walk around the house checking the fit).  I haven't conditioned the leather, yet.  Nonetheless, is this normal?  Many thanks.

Not a good sign... this could mean there are air gaps in the cork or between the feather and sole

It's curious because I tried them on at Moulded Shoe.  They didn't squeak in store as far as I can recall.  Presumably, this is the same pair I tried on (I had them shipped to my house which was cheaper than the sales tax).

Had this happen on some single soled chukka's on me.  Sent them back for a full refund.  Same thing with my BB Unlined Cordo #8 Penny's.  Just pick up Whiskey Chukka and hoping like hell they don't end up doing that... difference is... these are double sole maybe that will work.  I also didn't care for the Leydon Chukka sole, felt really flimsy.  Pass....

You are correct Uncle. It was actually in celebration of the Austrian artist Gustav Klimt's 150th birthday.
