I miss the brogueing around the heel. The AOC model doesn't have it. I just think it completes the look...

The Whiskey PTBs from Alden DC have just arrived.  I open the box to find that they sent me a 9D instead of 8D :censored: I went from 100-0 in zero seconds flat.  WTF!!!!!  Here are some pics, anyway.  If anyone is a size 9D and interested in this pair, shoot me a PM.  If not, I will be sending them back.

Here's a comparison pic verus my ravello LWB (new stock)

I also have the Leffot NST coming which is on Barrie! LOL

Agreed 100%,  I think AoC must have left it off their boot so it could be an "exclusive."

^ In response to Tifosi, I like that you know exactly what you want and have the discipline to hold out for it. I'd cave in. I'm having trouble resisting the JGilbert Plaza wingtip even though I have two new wingtip boots (RL Lindrick and Carmina Steinbeck).

Test drove a really nice car a few months ago. I had to decide between car payment or shoe addiction. Shoes won.
I plan to spend frivolously on shell through next summer. I will start looking for a car next fall.

It ain't easy, buda. Part of me wants to buy everything now cause I feel things are only going to get worse even for #8 and black.

I've been flirting around with the idea of a new car as well. I've had a car payment since my early 20's, but I have been without for the past 2 years. I love it and don't know if I could go back.

sorry to hear about the mixup! I wonder if someone expected a 9 got your 8's. You may want to check with Kathy before selling them to someone else.

 

If mine look as good as these I will be very psyched.

Thanks, Ryden.  No, I called and they in fact rang it up as a 9D.  So it's their mistake.  They did offer to exchange for an 8D PTB in cigar.  If you recall, I sold a pair of cigar PTBs not too long ago and kind of regret it.  Should I go for it?  They have it on hold for me anyway.  I was hoping for a whiskey though.  Oh well ...

I am shocked they have an 8D Cigar PTB in stock.
