Call them today.

You should be able to work with them. 

They will require 50% down. (If I recall)

If I wasn't on the Viberg color 8 Shell captoe preorder with Leffot, I would be trying to get on this naval boot preorder. I have them in the black, and I really love them.

I have a pair of unworn Ravello LWB's that I am likely going to sell. I wonder what they would go for...

Size?

I just called, and they said full payment upfront for nonstock sizes. I'm excited about the Leffot Navals because it will knock two shoes off my list: Alt Wien with antique (which I may still pick up later) and a color 8 semi-dress boot. I just wish this boot came on commando soles.

 

I'd likely sell my badass color 8 Indys on commando.

FWIW, and slightly off topic, Alden no longer makes Barrie lasted models in A width.

Typically a 10.5B would translate more to a 10C rather than a 10D. But everyone's feet are different .....

Barrie lasted models in narrow widths - particularly A and B - are quite a bit more sleek than, say, a D width. A side by side comparison is interesting to see.

You are most likely a C width...Alden Madison carries stock models in C Width................even though they "lost" my "confirmed" Whiskey LWB order.....in 10C no less.

The PCT 270 is really versatile and besides got a deal at jcrew so can't complain.

Leffot Naval Boot also has all eyelets. It's also missing the panel stitching across the side of the boot.

Good catch on the side stitching. Thanks

I just bought a pair of #8 LWBs in 10.5B and have a pair of black shell LWBs in 10.5B in production. Standard models can typically be made in any size that the last exists for on a request basis. For rare shells, you would have to pre-order for the next run. I have done that for several of my shoes.

Talk to DC or SF.

This was already answered, but here's a pic of what I'm wearing today, these are Barrie in size 12B with trousers that have a 8.5" leg opening (17" total circumference)

Thanks, all the answers have been most helpful. That is a terrific look and I like the color and look of those trousers. From the angle the opening seems very well proportioned to the shoes.

I hereby declare a shell bubble.  Time to sell rare makeups.  Market values are officially in excess of intrinsic values.

 

Besides, the only people who can distinguish between shades are my SF "friends," none of whom I'm ever likely to meet; ergo, no one will ever realize I'm wearing 4/ravello/whiskey/cigar.

So who is getting in on the Navals tomorrow??

I would love a shell PCT, but I've spent too much this year already.
