I though exactly the same thing. In fact, I have wanted whiskey tankers for so long I began wondering if it would be possible to reverse engineer the bag into a pair of boots.

No offense to the maker or seller-but that description of the bag looks a little misleading. I see cordovan horsehide-but not cordovan shells. Horsehide is a lot cheaper per sqft. I'm not sure horsehide should command that high a price. You can buy a really nice horsehide motorcycle jacket for $700. Just be aware.

I can't stress enough how awesome they are to deal with plus the laces are made in the USA!

 

It's a shame they don't make black or brown versions...

This could be a nice little primer for the folks that come on and ask general questions about Alden.

 

Nicely done by Need Supply:

Personally I think this should be a sticky at the top of the thread but who am I?

By the way does anyone know if I should size a half size down on the Barrie? bounce2.gif

What's a Barrie?

I know a couple of weeks ago someone was hoping the last size 12 pair cordovan longwings from J. Crew would be purchased in hopes of a restock. I heard today J. Crew will be releasing #8 longwings next week some time and luckily they won't be crepe sole!

post #67830 of 86680

Deliverance-

 

I'm very happy, good fit, no production issues.  My first pair of JCrew, and my first pair of shell cordovan boots.

Wahoo!

 

See Ya,

Steve
