And these are a size 8 so on a cost per inch basis your 12 or 13 should go way higher smile.gif

If that is the case, Argentino, I'll buy your cigar LWB and I'll cut them in half and make 2 pair that I can sell and make a killing on!rotflmao.gif

I can't really tell what the edge trim color is.

He will have to get an extra $100 on eBay to cover their fees. It should be interesting to see what they go for, probably $850-$900.

I am still bitter I lost the #4 Chukkas. Been 3 months and still not over it...

I believe they've done versions of the shoe for quite some time - calf, shell and currently, in suede (blue and snuff).

The blue suede piqued my interest but ... I'm sure. It would be my first 'blue suede shoe.'
Gentlemen, before this info request gets too buried - anyone have experience with the LS monk strap?

As long as babies are still being born with feet there will be people to make shoes for them. With over 58 million horses in the world, and over 10 million in the United States alone, the chances of running out of horse butt leather for your prized shell cordovan shoes are slim.

I have the LS Plaza monk in #8. I'm a TTS 10.25. I generally wear a 10D Barrie (but have a couple pairs of 9.5s that fit well) and a 10.5D in the Plaza. Perhaps it was due to them being shell, but a 10D in this fit perfectly. I have a couple other pairs of the same monk in calf and they're 10.5s. Hope this helps. It's a fantastic shoe which I think looks better on the Plaza than the Aberdeen.

My point was that creases are expected on the vamp, not on the cap itself.

Nice boots. Thanks for sharing.
I wish alden offered a special order program. I would save all my pennies for a plaza cigar boot.
post #58963 of 79127
What would you gentlemen order if alden offered a one-time-only special order?

That is tough. I'd probably do a ravello plaza NST boot. I'd settle for the same in a blucher if I was somehow restricted to shoes.

Either #4 brixton plaza or #4 indy barrie. Altough the ravello plaza nst is close behind.
