I'm done (for now).

Cap Toe Boots (Ravello)
LWB (Color 8)
PTB Beales (Cigar)
Indy Boots (CXL)

Great looking boots!!

Just curious ..... Am I the only one who doesn't tie the laces around the ankle of the boot with a boot such as the one pictured? I have no objection to it, I just don't happen to do it.

Should they ever come in, I think that will have my pebble grain boot needs taken care of. I also have an MTO from another shoemaker in the works that will combine pebble and shell. We'll see which I get first.
Appreciate the tip on other makers' pebble grain options, though. I don't really know anything about C&J or AS, so it's good to hear they offer some nice makeups along these lines.

 

 

 

 

I don't have a cap toe boot but these pebble grain C&Js WT Islays' have a danite sole.

The wait wouldn't be that bad if those are the ones you really want.

 

After all you will have them for an awful long time.

Oh, I ordered them in black 7.5E too icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif





maybe its the lighting, what makes this different from the CXL indy?

Could be the angle, but they might be the Moulded Shoe edition on the Modified last.

Moulded Shoe can add one at the shop.

I do, because Alden's laces are confoundedly long.

Those ravellos are gorgeous.  I don't tie the laces around the ankle anymore.  But I have a weird reason for not doing so as I actually like that look sometimes or for a change.

 

When I cross my legs and I'm just sitting (in a meeting, talking or watching tv), I tend to put my hand on the boot and just feel the incredible texture of the leather, whether it's shell or calf or whatever.  Many of my boots have such a wonderful tactile feel to them.  And the laces around the ankle prevented full appreciation of the tactile sensation.  I know...I'm weird.

I will definitely consider that... If I remember to ask when the boots come in. Thanks for the tip.
