Long and Don, nice Cigar and Whiskeys! Cool, way to go with the Alden Classic and Squirrel, those are pretty cool. I really like the color on those boots, I don't think that those boots look that Bozo!!!

Thanks mdubs.

TSM version is all eyelets (no speedhooks).  At least that's what they told me.

Oh cool, I didn't think to ask. I just assumed that it would be like the prior run...

Note that the original owner darkened the edges. They were originally antique...

If anyone is thinking about swapping their TSM order (8D) for the Madison one (commando, speed hooks)...let me know. Not 100% sure I'd do it, as I don't think The Madison makeup is all that bad. Would forget the differences over time, I bet.

Yes, at this point I agree. Leathersoul used to have some great makeups, but recently haven't seen anything new from them. When I talked with them a couple months back, I was told they had no new makeups planned at that time.

Awesome, thanks guys! These should be almost exactly like the EP Brixton boot that never happened in that case. I think the only difference will be flat welt (Brixton) vs reverse welt (TSM). I think I actually prefer reverse, so as long as the color is on point, this will be my grail boot.

Yep, I just assumed as well, but it's probably wise to never make assumptions when it comes to Alden!

Do the unlined BB LHS go on sale from time to time?

 

I am thinking of grabbing a pair but could wait if they sometimes drop in price a bit.

Get a corporate discount card for 15% off. It's not difficult to find out how.
Or wait for one of the 30% off events.

Perfect, thx!

 

 

Wearing these today so it got me thinking about how I want some other colors in the LHS, such a great loafer and fits me very well.

Switched the laces out on these two pairs: thoughts?

Is it difficult to remove those plastic toe guards from double leather soled shoes and boots? Once the double leather sole is flexible I think they are no longer needed. Maybe I should just take them to a cobble and give him another $5 to remove them.

I prefer the lighter laces on the LWB to the dark laces on the tan suede

Nice change up. Not real dramatic, but just enough.
