Plan to take my first shoe selfie later today...

Indeed, I just upholstered my BMW in Old Ravello.

I have been eyeing the Context Snuff Roy Boot for about a year now in 9.5E - anyone have long-term experience with this boot (or a similar makeup)? Been wearing a lot more snuff in recent weeks... Would like to continue through fall

Other options are either Leffot CXL preorder (Natty CXL chukka or Brown CXL PT Boot)

Hah! It's not my bed stand it's on my bed stand. I brush it whenever I am just sitting around upstairs.

Once you take one, it will be part of your normal routine. I still won't take mine in public.

I know, I just figured that with the number of rare shell Aldens you own you could probably build a bed stand and a half out of them.smile.gif

Hah, that would be a darn expensive bed stand!!!

But could you imagine how many shoes you could make from TheBeebs' Beemer. :-O

The only one I see on their website is a preorder from 2010. Do you happen to have a link for it?

I almost said it will be my first Ravello high boot, and then I rotated my head and my WT boots are on my bed stand. They are one of my "projects"...

Both DC and SF got a run recently of the Whiskey PTB. I am not sure when they will do another run, but give them your name and 12B and they will include it next time.

Both DC and SF have my name and size down, so I guess it's just a waiting game at this point! It's been a while since I've been to NYC, but I'll be there in about 6 weeks from now, so maybe I'll stop in to Leffot while I'm there.

Damn, I might have to pull the trigger, seems like the perfect casual LWB for winter.

That makeup reminds me of one they tried to do several years ago. Brown CXL LWBs over commando. Only problem was Alden made them as PTBs.
Winn Perry gave us a deal on those.

Are these similar? The makeup sounds very similar to the one shown on the bottom. I guess I lucked out since I only paid $300 during the UM sale for these.

Different eyelets, edge trim and welt so a few differences between the two

Darn you guys. You caused me to finally get my first pair of selvedge raw denim. I am just doing a test run with a pair of Unbranded. I plan to try out some other brands but wanted to ensure that I knew what I was doing first before I spent enough to buy a pair of rare shell on two pairs of jeans. Denim and Alden pics to ensue on Fridays and weekends.



What denim are you all rockin with your Aldies?
