    Bravissimo, MrDV. I will never see these in this decade. I'm sure.

    No reason to be apprehensive. Leffot is a great shop and Steven,Che, etc will take great care of you. Their style is very laid back and non-pushy. Some take that as not caring but I can assure you they care a great deal about their customers. I would certainly recommend going over; thank god I am not a 10 minute walk from them or I may be bankrupt

    For a close-cousin, check out J. Gilbert's upcoming make up of cognac calf NST boot on the plaza last.

    New burgundy waxed laces from The Tie Bar. I'm quite pleased with the length of these 30 inch laces.

    +1. This my next and last Alden shell boot I will buy. I'll take it on any last except Trubalance. Maybe someday. I'm patient.

    Interesting, I thought mine was a one off. Wonder if I should just ditch this model. I was hoping this won't happen again. Anybody else have this speed hook problem??

    Now those are looking really nice indeed! I would be interested to see some outdoor photos as these indoor shots make them look almost like cigar.
