No way..I would get it in a heartbeat! I guess we have to make decisions sometimes. I don't feel so bad now:satisfied:

I just called Leffot about that pre-order (May 2012) yesterday and as expected, no word. They did say there will be pre-orders opening for the Color 8 Tankers, LWBs, Dovers (already up), and an Atom Blucher. Nothing exotic though - no surprise there.

I didn't even have a very good reason---I wasn't 100% on my Grant sizing, but I could have easily guessed it at the time, or I could have just gone to an Alden stockist.

As beautiful as the shoe looks to be, I just wasn't convinced I'd wear it enough. Palliating the fear of regret with my first Trickers boot purchase...

I have had this shoe for a couple of years, but only wear it as a dress shoe or business casual. I have literally never worn it casually, and don't plan to. Having said all of that, it is a beautiful shoe.

Color 8 Tankers you say?! Tempting.

Yep, and to be honest I've never really been into the style...until recently. I might have to pull the trigger when the time comes. Problem is I already have my Alden purchases spoken for for the next several months.

Awesome stuff. I'd love a pair of those. Where did you score them from?

Just browsing various shoe vendors and thought I would pass along this new arrival from Moulded Shoe: Natty CXL Indy on Modified Last

ebay score....I wasn't sure I would like the tassel but figured for $85 I would take a shot.

 

I recently saw them on another retailer site (http://www.harrisonlimited.com/), but these originally came from a local shop here in Atlanta.

They do seem to crease a lot, but I think that is attributed to having one less pair of eyelets than the traditional 990.
They are lined.

Gentlemen, hoping for some advice on a pair of cordovan boots. I've worn these about a dozen times and it appears there's an issue with the welt stitching on the left boot. Check out the two photos below. The first is the left boot with the issue, and the second is the right boot for comparison. Also, the welt on the left boot seems to be coming apart from the sole slightly.

 

My questions is this. Assuming that the fix for the issues is to have the welt replaced, which to my understanding can only be done a finite amount of times before having to replace the boots altogether, would you recommend wearing these until a full Alden re-sole/re-craft is needed or having the repair done now? I want to get as much mileage out of these as possible before using up one of my welt replacements, but also don't want to damage them beyond repair (e.g. water seeping into the welt, insole, etc. due to separation from the sole) by wearing them and waiting to have the repair done at a later time.

 

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
