This is a great boot from Jgilbert. I own it. You should contact Yenni to check if/when they are doing it again.

If all you have is LSBH you're not doing too bad  .  .  .

It's about an hour away though. I stopped by a couple of times to chat with Brian. Haven't bought any footwear yet.

An hour?  That's nothing.  I'd love to be an hour away from an Alden dealer (usually I have to get on a plane).  Bryan and Joel are a pleasure to deal with. I hope to get back out there next weekend.

 

Best of luck.  And I like your photos.  I'll have to learn how to use the timer on my camera.

Good advice here.

I wear my snuff suede unlined pubs without socks in the summer all the time.


Thanks to both of you for the feedback; will do.

 

Seven - Show us some picks of BNelson's work on your Cigars.  I was thinking of doing the same thing, but since I have the RL Marlow with the dark edge, I probably won't.  Still curious though...

Agreed. I think I had grabbed the 8D cigar capote from DC last week and it was you who was also looking at it. For frame of reference I returned it as it was a bit too tight for me, probably needed an 8.5. Getting an exact sizing on Alden can be difficult. I also tried an 8E in the Chukka and it was just a bit too big for me. I feel confident now in an 8D on the Barrie. With that being said my #8 wingtip Barrie boots area bit on the snug side and I might consider Barrie boots in an 8.5 in the future. My Indys are an 8D as well; I know most people size down but mine fit pretty well but a bit loose. I do wonder how a 7.5E would fit in comparison. It is just so difficult to truly know...

Same here.  Very versatile boot

I'm curious about Plaza-lasted boots -- as far as I know, there's one from J. Gilbert (#8 Captoe boot) and one from Frans Boone (Ravello Indy). Does anyone know of other Plaza-last boots?

Very interesting - are the special C&J models for J. Crew? Or just stock models?
