Nice shine on those! 

I never bought the 405 indys, and my gateway alden was the 1339 chukka. Several pairs later I still haven't bought the 405. I must be among the miniscule minority on this thread who don't own the 405

beware if you order these: I ordered my usual barrie size and they were way too tight. I would try TTS for these.

Do any of the shops do this makeup (welt color, sole etc) instead of Brown CXL  but with one of the brown shell colors?

Agreed.

I just finalized a purchase of the Ravello PTBs that Papa Doble had in the marketplace. I couldn't be more thrilled. I'm trying to decide if I want to topy this pair. I did topy my 975s, but I'm not sure if it was the right call. I'd love advice.

 

I live in an urban environment free of significant moisture. For the forseeable future, the shoes will not be worn in rain or other harsh climates, but what is an issue is the roughness of the streets. I do a good bit of walking around as I live in San Diego's downtown, and the sidewalks and streets are pretty freakin' rough around here. 

 

On a rare/special shoe like these, would you topy them? 

 

I love data (I know, huge nerd) and rather than collecting responses in replies here, I'm wondering if you guys would be willing to respond to the poll embedded below. That way I can see the opinion of more than just the few posters willing to reply to me. Forgive me if this is either inappropriate or hopelessly lame.

The closest is the "stock" cigar chukka. I own both the LS CXL chukka and the cigar chukka. I recommend them both.

I was fortunate enough to grab a pair from O'Connells in cigar shell that look pretty damn close. Not sure if any of the Alden factory stores are doing cigar chukkas tho.

The Factory stores, including the one in your hood, KW, are still doing the Cigar Chukka. Just call the factory shop and ask to get on the order.

Thanks, the stock cigar has a brown welt right? Contacted Leather Soul and of course they do not stock my size 12 on the Barrie(really 12.5 but I do not get picky) - Emailed and they said it could be special ordered and take a year.... How is your LS Brown CXL aging...I prefer it to stay similar to what is pictured and not change to some other darker shade.

post #90269 of 91595

yea looking at a pic of mine, the welt is definitely darker than the cxl pair you posted
