looks pretty sharp. Too bad it's only available in store.

Renews my hope that Alden agrees to make the Thor boot MTO.

Yeah, seriously. I would order them immediately, but im not going to hop a plane for 8 hours for the privilege of spending $750 on a pair of (really nice) boots.

Get the close heel if it available as it really balances the boot out nicely.

Nice looking boot.

+1. Also, Thor boot will be Barrie last with no pulltab, both of which are upgrades for me.

I am always learning more about my tastes and preferences.  I thought that I'd always prefer a 360-welt and always a storm-welt/split-reverse welting, since I lean towards a more casual/work boot look.  But especially with the Barrie (and probably Trubalance, too), I'm finding what you said so very true.  The Barrie's heel tends to be huge when it's a 360-welt AND split-reverse, too.  When I got my #8 PCT boot from J.Crew, I found the natural welt and a closed heel really added a nice balance to the look and the heel wasn't so ginormous. 

Purchased the #8 Indy earlier this year & they have started to lighten up a bit. You'll find that the type of welt makes a difference & on the Indy the close heel balances it out better.

Really wish that we would have done the Thor boot with a flat welt & close heel as I wanted. Tom really nailed it with those cigar jumpers, great looking boot.

And the Thor isn't supposed to have that stitching on the side of the upper.  To be honest, It kind of pisses me off seeing that boot, because it makes the Thor less rare if it gets produced.

 

The only way it could piss me off more is if it were Jcrew and not LS.

Cigar jumpers are perfect. I have a Carmina look-alike on its way, though.

This is a terrible comparison in my opinion. Someone else has stated that the J. Crew prices are on par with Alden pricing and I find that to be true too with the G9 Barracudas and Barbour jackets too. Just because you can get something from Europe for a cheaper price than J. Crew doesn't mean they are marking up their prices. You can say the same thing about Barbour jackets from the Barbour store and Crockett and Jones shoes from the C&J store. The prices are not being marked up, that is just what the retail price is for imported goods from another country. Part of the savings you are getting is due to duties which you should be paying on your purchase.

Cigar, TruBalance, speed hooks, pull tab (all exactly as I'd want) and then... in-store only.... ffffuuuu.gif

I am now in total agreement. Was the group adamant on these features? I guess it would be too late to change it now? I'm in regardless but...

You have color 8 tankers as well, right? When do you wear each boot?
