I love my Leffot tanker boots, but I am not 100% convinced that the antique edge or dark edge is better for tankers. Context and Leather Soul models look outstanding as well

The Tanker/NST style is a perfect example of something I didn't know I wanted until I saw it repeatedly on SF. I know some people say there's too much going on with it, but I love the hand stitching across the toe.

Same here. I just love split toes. Even though the tankers will be very close to my shell Indys, I had to have them.

OK. Now I'm really done till some exotics come up.

Leffot Black Shell Naval Boot:




With my color 8 Plaza last boot from JG


Green tongue(?)



Happened to be wearing the JG #8 Plaza last boots when the Naval (Barrie last) boots arrived. FYI they are both 10.5

Love the Leffot navals. I had considered them, but I really wanted something without any brogueing and not on Barrie.  #8 Plaza are nice, too!

It is probably my favorite style.

I have a difficult time deceiding which of these I like best, guess it's whatever I'm wearing.

nephew,
smooth cloth for both steps 1 and 3 i.e. tie shirts, underwear, painters cloth etc

Does anyone know if you can contact Alden directly in Middleborough (508-947-3926) to find out who might be receiving a particular shoe / boot in the near future? I was wondering if Alden was able to divulge information like this, or whether we simply had to wait until retailers announced particular makeups or preorders?
