I'm guessing those Cigar cap toe boots on the Plaza were a special order for Mac back when Alden used to do such things. Something like that seems like it would be nearly impossible to find, unless a big retailer decides to commission a full run for their store. It's a shame, because it's such an amazing makeup.

My humble Memorial Day Alden collection photo...

 

Tassels:    Cigar, Color 8, BB Mocha Kid Sude

Balmorals: Cigar Strait Tip (Citishoes), Color 8 Punch Cap, Black Punch Cap

LHS:         Cigar, Color 8, Black BB Unlined

 

(Implementing 'The Method' on each pair would have entailed over 90 min of brushing, so I simply wiped them down with a damp paper towel.)

 

 

Brushes, Waxes, Creams and Other Shoe Care Accessories (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

I will be interested to see what biases everyone has in their collections.  I know RTP has a heavy weighting on the LWBs.  Hopefully we have a good turn out.

Excellent family Bakes!  I have diversified some since my last family pic.  Will try to post sometime tomorrow.  Still need to brush and need some dry weather for an outdoor portrait.  BTW, do you prefer the Alden stock version of the tassels over the BB version with the foxing/stitch pattern behind the heel?  Take care my friend...

post #51790 of 86732

trying to work out my size in the lydon if you could bear with me (it is difficult to try on)

 

in barrie i can be either 8.5B/D or 8C/E .... because of my splayed forefoot an 8B/E would probably be perfect.

 

I am cramped in the forefoot of an 8 B/D 8.5 B/D are a little long in the LWB (the unlined PTB are pretty perfect in 8.5 D) a 8E in the AWW is a little roomy in the heel.

 

Not sure wether 8.5E or 9D would be the way to go in the Leydon?

Thank you, RTP.  Initially I preferred the BB with the heel foxing, but after acquiring the stock Alden version in #8 for a good price from an esteemed forum member, it grew on me and I may even prefer it for shell tassel make-ups.  The Mocha Kid Suede from BB has the foxing, which I do like for that pair.  The Cigar is not avail from BB, so its the only way to go, but I think I may prefer it without in cigar.

Thank you MrDV.  I have been looking to add Ravello LHS also, but will have to be patient.  I anxiously await your collection pic.
