I see the #8 LWBs on the J Crew site took a healthy jump from $645 to $697.

I would do yourself a favor and forget you ever saw/ read about #4 captoe boots. It will make your life so much easier.

The boots took a $30 jump too. And I just looked and the waxed bluchers I got in 2011 (the ones with the stitching that came undone) have jumped up $100. 

 

My lust for other brands grows deeper.

 

 

But seriously how the hell are shell Vibergs $500 more than the rest of them?

Thanks guys, the 974 is a nice and classy shoe. They are one of Alden's original models and is part of their regular catalog and thus should be readily available. I really like the bar lacing on these guys, definitely suggest it.

Many gents ignore stock models to their own detriment. The 974 is a wonderful workhorse business shoe. And the color 8 tassel is iconic. Nicely done.

I found Ravello boots hard to work with as a color. Rather orange-y. Maybe I should have stockpiled them until prices hit $10,000/pair.

I think I said this a few pages back but those Indys came up on Yahoo Auctions about 2 months ago and sold for over 2200 dollars.

 

I guess Im also in the minority here but nothing about #4 or #2 impresses me. They are red shoes? Just not my thing. Now cigar or whiskey thats a whole nother ball game.

post #79799 of 87462
just amazing. do you have a link to that auction? i must have missed it
post #79800 of 87462
Supply and demand, fact is #4 is gone.
