I will probably be done with boots at that point except snuff suede PT boot.

How many times have you said "then I'll be done buying Alden _______" and actually meant it?

I would like to think that but the other day I made a spreadsheet and it was 20 deep at least, including 3-4 styles that are confirmed and or already paid for.

 

Wishful thinking but I know I will not stop grabbing new styles anytime soon. :)

Compared to my Ravello PTBs from Alden SF and Color 8 "Dover" PTBs from Leffot.

I didn't have a chance to look at them outside before I had to run...

Damn Dubs. You sure they aren't black? That isn't cigar to me.

Does anyone know if JGilbert's preorder for the Cigar Indy has been confirmed?

Went to Gary's today. No LWBs, but LHS, tassels, and PTBs in black and color 8 shell. Also had some nice suede. I actually tried on a pair of 966, tan calf shortwing bluchers, single leather, on Aberdeen. They look great! I will snag a pair if I see them on sale for about $350 or less. Unfortunately, I had that chance last year when O'Connell's had a clearance sale. Should've jumped on them then!

Thanks for trying.

Yes. They are pretty dark. I am curious to see how they lighten up with time and being outdoors.

I have no problems with dark cigar. I like the lighter versions too.

If you don't like rolls don't get PTBs, monks, NSTs, or just about any shell make-ups outside of wingtips. I don't mind them (the rolls), but I guess it helps top have a healthy stable with which to rotate.

Natty chrmxl LWB, BB argyle, and a beautiful shot overlooking the Pacific...

 

I have had some wrinkles on these chrmxl's but nothing bad at all.  Great casual shoe, and highly recommend! :nodding:  Cheers gents...

Nice @ReppTiePrepster, are those the TSM version?

 

Just went to the Unionmade store for the first time, scored the #8 dover which reappeared in my size recently. It's definitely clunky, but I like the look. It fits just similar to my cigar longwings in the same size. Also I didn't manage to find any quality issues.

I'll be leaving the country soon and asked them to ship it, so no pics for today :confused: It's been a year since I picked up my 4th pair, I'm adding 2 more (the dover + ravello boot pre-ordered). It's crazy.

Where's that view from? Looks almost like an Italian town. Nice socks, buddy. I need to expand my collection.

So what do you think, lined or unlined?

Yup, they are TSM.  Congrats on the color 8 dover and ravello boot; they are excellent additions to any wardrobe.

It's from Newport Beach (The pic does kinda look like it could be on the Mediterranean Sea).  Thanks, I picked up a bunch of BB argyles form a big sale of theirs about two months ago.
