post #33721 of 79232
This is a cross post from the thrift thread, but I scored these a few weeks ago. I am finally initiated (on a graduate student budget) and very happy about it. When I get a spare minute and a few dollas, I will buy some products and a horse hair brush and get to work on these mofos.

I also own Alden black shell ptbs - standard sole, double leather - so this will mix things up a bit, and provide an inclement weather option too. nod[1].gif

A recent purchase from Leffot. This cigar has more greenish undertones than others I own, but they should age nicely.

Interesting. My Leffot cigar/snuff saddles have no such green undertones. Such is the variations of shell .....

Nice score man! A good brushing will mike those look good as new.

I never find Alden at thrift shops up here in Canada; only Allen Edmonds...and never shell confused.gif

Does anyone know of a shop that has the #8 unlined ptb (dover) in stock on waterlock, if possible.

LS does runs of them but are sold out...

Those look great; I've been wanting to see pictures of those on here.

Soon I will be sending my vintage Hanover black shell ptb's to BNelson (in need of restoration) to have them convert my standard sole, double leather, to the flex sole, single leather. They are lined, but they are so well broken in that they will feel almost exactly like my unlined color 8 PTBs. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

From Nick at BNelson:

In addition to the Alden Waterloc I had some JR soles dipped by the same outfit. Essentially they are now JR Waterloc.

Just passing this along ...

As I've said before, Nick's work is great and he has been nothing but first-class to deal with.

This is an interesting listing on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/110940790955

 

 

 

 

The Leffot Ravello LWB makeup in 8.5D.   Wonder if they will sell.
