Thanks, Shouldaville. Now I'm excited. I just ordered the Church Hill Indys from NeedSupply. Package should arrive tomorrow
Hope the shoes work out!
If you make it up to Baltimore (about an hour from DC, or 45 minutes by train), you should visit Samuel Parker Clothiers. They usually carry the entire RL cordovan line (wingtips, penny, PTB, and I think Lindricks) in addition to a nice collection of Aldens.
No Whiskey for me today.
Ill have to make due....
Who am I kidding, I love these.

I was lucky enough to get these too - Leffot perforated captoe boots in black cordovan - and since Fall is beginning, am wearing them for the first time today. I too really like the boot - something about the way it is put together is very nice - I think the all eyelets adds to the quality and look as does the double leather sole. I did not get the color 8 version because I simply could not justify it when I have a color 8 captoe boot. I really wish, however, that I could find a way.
The black is an outstanding make-up and yours look great.
Alden of Carmel has limited sizes remaining in color 8 shortwings with commando soles on the leydon last. Leydon is not as round-toed as aberdeen, but it is far slimmer than Barrie.
tarrago (sp?) is an incredibly effective product that you spray on suede to make it amazingly water repellent. I do not know if it will help with dye rubbing off on suede, but I would certainly ask of the manufacturer. I am sorry I do not have the experience to advise about how to remove such stains.
