Is there still a list for the whiskey PTBs or do you mean the 9D that alex is returning?
post #64818 of 91700

Can anyone tell me if there are any stores that sell a (dark) brown suede boot on commando soles in the barrie last?  Ideally indys, but I'm open to other options (as long as they're not chukkas).  If not on commando but everything else is right, I'd be open to that suggestion as well, and would just get them resoled.

 

Thanks.

The one he is returning.

They told me they had promised them to someone else already.

The guys around here are quick! I wonder if Alden DC is amazed at how people find out that customers are returning shoes! Ha!

HaHa. Yeah. We are pretty crazy. :-)

Leather Soul has carried a Choco suede Indy and Tanker boot both with commando soles, but I have no idea if they're expecting a restock on them any time soon. Have you looked at the Chamois Indy boot? While not suede, they may meet your needs if you're looking for a rough, casual leather. Also, I believe the stock chamois is on a commando. As for the barrie part, you may be out of luck as far as Indy's go. They do exist, but are pretty rare.

I always thought that a LS safari boot on barrie would be damn near perfect. I love that boot but I'm not sure if plaza would work for me. I like barrie for a casual boot and the commando looks great.

This is a much better desert style boot than anything like a Clark could offer.

Fresh Out of the Mailbox!!!

 

Alden Ravello LHS

 

 

 

 

I will post a few more comparison pictures later next my old Ravello NSTs and my new Ravello LWBs. Also got my RL Gianni's, but will open those in a while. Those will stand out a bit more with my wife since I don't exactly have a ton of boots. :-)

Man, sorry about that!  This Alden shell shortage is really getting out of hand.  :angry:

Anyway, if any of you who missed out on the Whiskey/Ravello PTB and wanted to try something else, I'm putting together a group MTO on the Tricker's thread -

http://www.styleforum.net/t/241668/trickers-mto-forum-group-buy/960#post_6700629

The shoe will likely look exactly like the pic below except with brass eyelets.  Made of Tec (Teak) Shell Cordovan.  PM me if you have any questions.  Thanks!

I took a shot on the fit, but I think I might have finally nailed my LHS fit. I went 10.5B. I am 10.5C TTS and get 11B in the Aberdeen, 10.5B or 10D Barrie. I have a pair of Cigar LHS that are 10C and I am probably going to have to either go sockless with them or deal with the pain on the top of my feet. I am going to try these on a few times at different times of the day to ensure their fit, but I just tried them on (at the end of the day) and they felt great! The LHS has been a tough one on me due to the three dimensionality particularly associated with these shoes.
