My pic kinda's sucks but the link for LS does a better job of capturing the color...actually, holding the shoe and looking at the pic

Insanity sir. You need a better system.
That pair missing in action for 2 years should be a crime.
Congratulations on you newish shoes. I think they're as good as alden gets.

I'm going to have to use the Porterinjax situation for a future purchase coverup. "Omigod, Hunny. Check this out. I just found these cigar captoes on Grant in the dark recesses of my closet. How did I forget about these?! Look at how shiny and perfectly unworn they've remained despite being back there for years, right?" :nest:

Haha, excellent idea.
Your wife could surprise you with her reaction as well... "In the back of the closet? Those ct boots are on the new cigar, much darker with no olive hues..."

She's getting there. She now knows the difference between captoes and wingtips. She can now even identify which ones are Trickers and which ones are Alden. Might as well continue to play my cards face up on the marital table wink.gif

Yeah...I am a bit chagrined at this. Think I even posted several pages back that "I used to have a pair of ravello short wings..."

That gif captured my precise reaction, especially after seeing his items for sale in the signature and realizing those short wings are probably my size. It's like finding freshly laundered money in one's jeans after taking them out of the dryer--only, better.

I'm looking for a pair of Alden cap toe boots in natural like the ones featured here: http://blindbully.com/2013/12/alden-oak-street-red-wing-wolverine-timberland. Looks like the Alden x J. Crew are gone, and I can't find anything similar that's currently available. Anyone know of a similar boot I could pick up?

Leffot has a preorder open....not sure if your size is available
post #74440 of 87707
Speaking of Leffot and CXL boots, a pair of PT boots from the latest run appears to be available in my size.... I assumed that run sold out entirely...

I like that PT boot...If interested in the Indy version of it, Epaulet has more Innsbruck on the way (along with other make-ups).

9D? If so, that was mine; I switched my pre-order from the PT boot to the #8 dover. Looks they are gone now, though.
