To Leffot? That's for a Color 8 LWB with Antique Edge and Waterlock sole.
Otherwise I'm just a normal consumer :P No insider tips.
As weird as this sounds, in a sort of ideal world where any of those could be found, what would you guys pick? After picking up these two pairs, I probably won't be able to get more for a long time, so I just want to make sure that I am 100% satisfied here. I'm willing to search a bit to make it happen -- after all, as somebody famous once said, the thrill is in the hunt.
from your list, I'd go cigar PTB personally (but antique sole, like from fransboone) and #8 LWB, but also with antique sole. I am dressed more casual than formal, so antique sole works perfect for me
I have to give Kathy in the DC store props.
The new 9905s arrived yesterday, and look great.
I ordered them and then after i placed the order on the phone, I got a call back 30 minutes later and was told that they were already allocated to another person.
They told me they would wait list me if in fact the other person didn't come for them.
They called me thursday to tell me they were available.
For all of you crazy for whiskey shell, I have noticed that Sky Valet (http://www.skyvalet1.com) has at least the plain toe blucher (9905) and leisure handsewn (6746). And having inspected them in person, they are a very light batch of whiskey for those who obsess over such things.
It seems like the inventory on the store's website is not always reliable. I mention Sky Valet mainly because it seems like some people search far and wide to source whiskey shell, and I have rarely had a problem finding it. Then again, I am not desperate to purchase all of the special order makeups or to have a particular style in every single color of shell.
