I told myself I was done with the pre-order game, but the Leffot tankers called to me. I actually had a pair from their very first batch. Unfortunately, the larger sizes came with black rather than brown soles, so I returned them. After waiting until sometime in 2014, I hope Alden doesn't screw them up again.
I seem to remember getting on a list for a funky sounding pair of LWBs from LS ages ago, but I've completely given up on those. I believe they were #8, Plaza, brown edging, and brass eyelets.
