post #38401 of 79268
I had 3 pairs of LWB in my cart last night (dark brown, tobacco and suede). forgot to order before midnight (got caught up with bottling beer) I'm kind of glad I didn't purchase them at this point since none of the LWB were cordovan and I felt like I was settling. The one pair I did want was the camel buck but my size was not available in camel. so I'm feeling a bit relieved today!

I had them but ended up selling them after wearing them maybe 5 times in 8 months. After wearing them a few times, I had decided that the color was just a little bit too bright for my taste. I really like the style of the plain toe boot though.

Wore them today. Very nice.

As others had mentioned, looks so much better than the stock pics on J Crew website....

Normally, I wouldn't consider paying over $400 for a pair of boots so when I was boot shopping, I didn't even give this a thought. But if JCrew accidentally discounts them in the future, I would seriously consider picking up a pair to round up my boot collection.

Anyone have experience with these dark tan captoes from Shoe Mart? Was interested in seeing some real life pics.

Alden of Carmel has a pretty good selection of Cigar LWBs available. http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/Shoes-Cigar_284.htm

I'm looking for a 35mm Black Cordovan Belt - Nickel Buckle.

 

SF said they only have 28" and 44".

 

NY said they are hard to find, and that Alden stopped making them a year and a half ago.  (however, I was able to get a cigar belt from SF over the summer when the received that unexpected shipment of exotic shell belts puzzled.gif.)

 

Haven't gotten in touch with DC yet, but the gentleman at the Madison location said that he heard from customers that Brooks Brothers has shell belts.  I saw some on their website, but they had an etched buckle.  I am not sure if they have a more conventional version at the Brooks Brothers on Madison, so thought I would post here to see if anyone knew what he was referring too?

 

Pics would be a plus!

 

Thanks in Advance.
