If you like tan suede, I HIGHLY recommend picking up a pair. There are only a few left in 9.5, 10.5, 11


Nice colors...compliments.

After seeing all these pics, I need some cigar lwb in my life. Waiting on the next makeup from any shop!

I think skyvalet still has Whiskey PTB's in stock. Take a look at the website.

Has anyone recently changed blind eyelets to something like brass eyelets? If so, would you care to share pics?

 

Similarly, has anyone recently changed eyelets on boots to speed hooks? Would appreciate those pics as well.

You have the antithesis of my collection though, as I am essentially all shoes!

Same here...

I couldn't agree more.  The black shell wingtip boot seems to be calling my name, but not sure if color 8 would be more useful/versatile for me.

 

Any thoughts anyone??

Love the boots and now I'm craving soup dumplings!

Boot collection is almost complete. All in either 10E or 9.5E (it's not that difficult to get E widths if you have patience). Not sure if I can really sell any of these...

AppleMark

Top (L-R): Color 8 Captoe (Plaza, J Gilbert), Color 8 Tanker (Barrie, Leffot), Black Tanker (Barrie, Context), Tan Calfskin Wingtip (Barrie, J Gilbert)
Middle: Cigar Chukkas (Barrie, Alden NYC), Cigar Captoe (Grant, Alden DC), Black Captoe (Grant, Alden NYC), Color 8 Wingtip (Barrie, Alden of Carmel)
Front: Viberg Olive CXL Captoe Boots (2030, 3sixteen), Snuff Chukkas (Grant, Alden NYC)

May add a CXL boot eventually. If the Leather Soul Ultimate Indy is made again, I would like getting that. I've bought and sold many CXL boots, need to find one that I like.

Detail shot of my latest acquisitions. Middle pair are CXL LHS from Leather Soul.

So many nice boots posted lately.

 

Congrats to the gentleman with the Union Hill Indys. Glad you used the spray! They are beauts. Wear in good health.

 

Reassured by the discussion on the appropriateness of plaza boots with denim, I went with LS king wt boots on Plaza with Pure Blue Japan xx-013s.

If you already have a lot of color 8 shoes, why not go for black this time. Alden NYC recently got some black wingtip boots in.

I have the Ultimates and find them useful, but I don't crave wearing them like other boots in my lineup. What about Adam at AofC's brown cxl wingtip boot preorder? Or the perf captoe brown cxl boot at Madison? I'd also keep the Viberg cxl service boot in mind: comes in black, color 8 and dark brown. Heard on the Viberg thread that if they don't have your size, you can request that they make your size as long as it's one of the makeups on their site.

Nice recent acquisitions. Those cxl lhs should be super comfy once the snow fully melts.

Thanks. I know this may amount to treason on this forum, but I'm not a huge fan of the long wings...

You can never have enough boots!

 

As for envy, it's guys like DV, Bakes, Alci, Sazon, and others that inspired my Alden boot love.

Mike, I definitely love the Color 8 Brixtons. I wear them quite often as I have a very casual work environment. Keep posting pics of your great shoes -- you seem to have an enviable stockpile of Ravello, Cigar, and other great shell.

Kwhitelaw, the black shell cap toe with all eyelets was the most recent addition to my collection. The fact that it had all eyelets was a big determining factor for me because I love my Cigar Indy and Brixtons with all eyelets.

I love my black shell wingtip boot and I wear it regularly.

 

But I think Color 8 on black edge trim rather than antique edge may be even more versatile. But that's probably debatable.
