I was in South Africa this summer at Kruger Park (born in Johannesburg, so visit reguarly). I saw a pack of wild dogs and hyhenas going at each other. AWESOME and so rare.

 

I hope you're enjoying yourself! I loved Botswana!

got my cigar chukkas from o'connells today. cant take them off worship2.gif

 

definitely recommend O'connells.. lowest price I'd seen on cigar and incredibly fast shipping, all things considered, from buffalo to virginia.

I still have no power, heat or hot water. Have lived since Sunday in my Alden Kudu Indys.

Happy Halloween everyone - what's everyone's Holy Grail Alden?  

 

I'll go first: Color 4 captoe boot, Barrie last, commando sole, speedhooks

post #37026 of 87670
Hi, need help/advise. I have been searching high and low for a pair of Alden in either Ravello or Whiskey for either a NST or Captoe boots for almost 6 months now. Have tried TSM and was told that they r out of stock m they do nt ship overseas(i stay outside US) for Alden shoes. I can't even pre order one.
Tried LS and it seems like their shells r only reserved for their VIP. Tried Leffot n they dont take preorder for these as well. Is there any more options for me?

You are probably out of luck, particularly given the scarcity of whiskey and ravello.

I think ravello PTBs for me, which is why I own them. Or, by grail, do you mean they have to be nearly unattainable?

has always been the "Thor" boot from my avatar.

 

 

 

As far as virtually unattainable: Ravello LHS with single leather sole and antique edge trim.  Could also wear a Mahogany or #4 LHS.

 

Maybe also an exotic shell boot like a Ravello or Whiskey PT Boot on Barrie, all eyelets, leather sole, antique edge trim.

 

 

 

For anyone who might own some: IRL is mahogany distinguishably different from cigar? or is the difference hard to discern?

I don't own them, but TheWGP posted some pics of the entire rainbow of LHS, including mahogany (which looks like ravello):

Thanks for the Pic.

 

That is quite an achievement!

 

When did they stop making Mahogany, if anyone knows?

I don't mean unattainable, just your most coveted Alden shoe.  I'm sure scarcity in and of itself does cause some level of attractiveness, however.

 

I do have Ravello PTBs, which I love btw...

Try
http://www.shoesandshirts.nl/shoes/alden

or Anatomica Paris

Shoes & Shirts has a great lineup but they refuse to ship to US, otherwise it'd be like $586 before shipping a pair eek.gif
