Truly outstanding, Sir. Congratulations on a collection any of us would be proud to have and wear.
Question about the chukkas: are they all Barrie?
Is the reverse chamois chukka from J Crew?
Also - second from the end: is that a modified last?

Thanks guys, the tankers are super comfortable too. The feel like slippers. I like how the dark the #8 is on these, almost looks like dark cigar.

not sure I can use a fourth #8 boot, but that tanker is a beauty.

I was going to say they looked almost like cigar, but I assumed it was just the lighting/way the pic came out.  If that is how they look up close in the flesh, I'm very excited about my pre-order -- assuming they come in looking the same.  Enjoy those!

The photo is pretty accurate, at least on my monitor. In bright sunlight of course the purple tones comes out but inside or in indirect light they look very dark which I like on this style.

 

kwhitelaw - Outstanding collection!

Yeah I thought about that. The problem is that I don't live in the US (Europe) so it would be difficult for me to send the pair back just for a sole. And I don't think I could find a cobbler able to put that kind of sole easily.
 
Actually I don't have any preference for eyelets over speed hooks. It's just that I heard some people here saying it could cause damage to hems.

Alden won't change the sole so no need to send them to the US.
I'd think the Shoe Healer in the UK would be able to handle a resole.

I have a cigar indy boot from teshoemart and a cigar plain toe boot from frans boone. Both on commando. I got on a pre order for the frans boone boot, the indy just showed available one day on their website

Love seeing the variation of Ravello from milk chocolate to almost cigar

post #61048 of 91834

this latest batch of ravello I grabbed this week (ptb and lwb) may very well satisfy my 'need' for cigar lwb tbh. wasnt expecting it to be so dark, was anticipating more a shade of my day tripper

Agreed. I had planned on a brown cordovan LWB from another manufacturer but now I don't think I will be

assuming we are the same page with said other manufacturer... I may employ them for a dark brown shell boot (if I cannot obtain a commando sole brown boot) and then i may every well call it quits on future purchases..

 
unless an influx of #4 appears out of nowhere lol. love my #4 wallet
