I do feel quite fortunate. When I first took them out of the box all I could think of was, how could I ever top these? I think the answer is I can't and i'm ok with that. All the rest are just shoes to get me by til I throw the ravello LWBs back on.

However, I am on Leffot pre order for the color 8 lwb and Cigar Indy's. I'm afraid the addiction is real;)

I am going to do just that!

Starting to think I also want a whiskey PTB haha, does Kathy do that makeup as well?

Breck, very nice! Those are two other very fine designs. I am on the Indy Boot as well and am rather anxious to get them. Their Color 8 LWB is a great design, but I personally prefer the Cigar LWB with antique and the #8 on Black Edging.

Yeah I hopped on the Leffot Color 8 not thinking the Ravello would actually come to fruition. I will probably end up backing out on those.

The Cigar Indy's however, I cannot wait! I know the Indy's and more specifically the trubalance can get a little grief for its clunkiness, but the Indy fits my style to a T. At 6'2 I can get away with a 10.5E trubalance boot. The cigars are going to be so nice. A winter counterpart to my Natty Indy's.

Ha, I fought the TB last by getting a narrow width. :-)

@mdubs

That is one way around its "clunkiness". I haven't always had the strongest ankles so I rather like the solid base the TB provides.

Who is doing a Cigar Indy? Did DC confirm that?

Snapped a couple quick family photos while cleaning out my closet.  Mostly Aldens and EGs w/ a few other scattered brands

Leffot has one at the moment. They offered it up at the same time as the Ravello Day Tripper.

Thanks for the info. I'm sure all pairs are probably spoken for, with a waiting list as well. I need a 12B on the Trubalance, so I'm probably out this round. That's ok, too many other pre-orders for me already, don't want to spread myself too thin.

Yes, it was Leffot. I got a B width in on this run, so they did do B widths. But, you have to pay up front... :-(

Alden NY did a Whiskey Indy... Something tells me they have at least one B width going also.... :-)

Yes, there was one very expensive week last month.

Shocked to hear Leffot is running a cigar Indy. I was supposed to be on the Ravello boot abd something got messed up. Never once was a cigar indy mentioned as a possibility instead. That really irritates me.

Hopefully Leffot will not adopt the LS policy.satisfied.gif

 As you can tell, not a lot of Alden calf gets worn (or even discussed) here. I don't own any Alden calf myself, but have considered the J Crew "waxed" LWB's.

 

solid recommendation

Feels like they already have. I buy a fair amount from them and was really contemplating whether to order my various EG's through them or Skoak. This helps confirm my decision wink.gif
