I was fortunate enough to score some whiskey LHS on TSM's seconds list about a year ago and they were my go to shoe last summer. There is something about how that color pops with denim that makes it an incredible summer shoe. Probably received more compliments about them than any other pair I own.

They absolutely refurbished the upper. Put a ton of wax on. I was considering sending a letter telling them not to, but I didn't want to be too uppety. I've lived in Massachusetts, I know these people, they don't want to deal with some city slickers neurotic b.s.

I just got an email from Will and Leather Soul that my preordered chromexcel LHS arrived earlier than expected. Since the preorder I picked up a pair of suede LHS in an 11 that are definitely snug across the strap. I have 11s in plaza and aberdeen PTB that fit well and ordered the LHS in an 11 as well. I have read on the forum that chromexcel tends to give more than other leathers. Is that true? Any feedback is appreciated.

How durable are crepe soles compared to others? Also does anyone know where to find a plain or captoe shell boot w/crepe sole? I love the LS PTB #8 crepe sole, but they dont have plans on a restock in the near future. Any feedback would be appriciated.

Most would say the Grant is, overall, roomier than the Plaza. I don't disagree. My preference for the Plaza goes mostly to the issue of fit - as it is probably Alden's best fitting last for my foot. But there is nothing whatsoever wrong with the Grant.

Love this boot.   Where did you find that make-up?   I have been looking, but I cannot find any source that offers the NST boot in cigar.

Very nice.

My first chukka was cigar. To this day it remains my favorite chukka.

Can B Nelson do this on brand new soles post restoration as well? Take a little longer, maybe a little costlier. But would be the best of both worlds.

They look like they could be Rogue Territory Dark Stanton's or RK ISC's, or Raleigh Indigo Canvas Thins. Whichever, they look great.

Those are cool. I wouldn't buy or wear shoes which were that used by someone else but they show how tough the Indy boots really are. Gives me great hope for my cigar indys.
