what size would those cigars be?

LISTEN HERE ALL YOU ALDEN ENABLERS
I broke down and bought the Alden Cap Toe Cordovan Boots from J.Crew with the very coupon I posted on here about 12 hours ago.
If I don't pass my test, the boots go back (no pressure), but that's really NOT an option either way.
It's funny - I paid via PayPal and I got a debit of my acct right away. I wasn't expecting that, but maybe it's just a temp hold.
How did you get the coupon to apply? The JCrew website tells me it's excluded from the promo.
No... The 975 is more versatile as it can be both dressy and casual while dark cordovan longwings over antique soles (color 8, cigar, etc) tend to look very casual. Those longwings are awesome weekend shoes, but they can get lost in the rotation if you have a lot of other weekend shoes/boots (as you do). I find myself reaching for the 990 more than the Leffot LWB these days, which is kind of shocking. I expect to wear the Leffot LWB more when I break out the heavier tweed pants (antiqued longwings really excel with those).
Plus, the Cigar LWBs and the Leffot Antique LWBs are more or less the same shoe, and you have both. Cigar probably my favorite shell color but I sold my cigar LWB due to lack of wear.
I would like to see a color 8 shortwing on the Aberdeen for all those who aren't cool
with the Barrie last.
