nephew,
right on the mark

sherman's website has retail $488
alden store in NYC has retail $488- said they wouldn't discount (and tax for me)
harberdash has below retail, maybe a slight discount $460 but no HTTPS/SSL?
In-store discount on shell at Sherman Bros. is about 10%. Calling might work. Can't hurt. Free shipping.

Uncle Mac, very snazzy combo. You are the Mayor of Tassel town.

Indeed.  Fantastic build and highly recommended

They really do look outstanding! I keep revisiting Epaulet's website in hopes that someone returns a 10.5. It hasn't worked yet.

^^ The black shell tassel (factory version or BB version) is possibly the dressiest tassel of any maker - shell or calf. I highly recommend them.

Re the search for Leydon-lasted chukkas: It might make sense to check in with NeedSupply. I've had a wonderful experience buying from them. They answered my questions thoroughly and quickly via PM. IIRC, they offer a 10% discount to SF members each month (not sure if they're still doing this). While I don't think I saw chukkas on their site last time I looked, they are an Alden dealer and, therefore, could arguably have the Leydon chukkas drop shipped to you. Best of luck in the hunt! My Leydon chukkas feel like slippers and have been super comfy to wear in hot, humid weather.

 

In another matter, all the color 8 talk inspired me to share my most acquisition, a pair of Plaza-lasted wt boots in color 8 from LeatherSoul, who threw in a free pair of shoe trees as a thank you for my previous orders. Here are some iPhone pics:

 

 

 

 

They're dressier, yet even comfier than all of my Barrie-lasted shoes and boots. Now, if only someone created a Plaza wt boot in Ravello...

 

Question for Uncle: I've started giving more thought to getting some tassels. Can one rock these ok under the age of 40?

 

Final thought: I wish I pulled the trigger on the Alt Wiens from Epaulet when I had a chance. You guys who did are looking good. Wear in great health!

Awesome boots Doc. Very classy! +1 on a plaza lasted Ravello boot.

1. My plaza-lasted shell boots are easily my favorite shell boots.

2. As for the tassels inquiry (whether those under 40 can pull it off), Mac has, as I recall, opined on this previously. His answer was yes. I agree with him.

^^^ Semms to me Mike at Epaulet suggested that there would be other Alt Wiens coming.
