    Yes. Harrison's had a cigar PTB on plaza with single leather sole, that came out I believe at the beginning of the summer, I think?? @mdubs has this shoe and can confirm when they were released.

    As our friend RTP said, the only retailer in the US to do a Plaza Plain Toe Blucher (Dover Style), is Harrison Ltd in Alabama (to the best of my knowledge). A beautiful shoe, done in at least Cigar Shell Cordovan, however their past batch was rather on the dark end of the spectrum.

    They released them roughly 2 months ago if my memory serves me well.

    For a non-shell option, JGilbert carries a plaza lasted PTB in kudu leather with a commando sole. Not for everybody but it's there.

    Leffot's suede, CXL and calfskin preorders are now selling out within a day or so. LeatherSoul doesn't appear to have much extra stock of the many calf/CXL/suede models they are getting in either. The Alden frenzy continues unabated...

    90 degrees at 9 am, I thought it was September. Always boot weather to me.

    This was five minutes before my dog decided to use its eagle talons to gouge my poor indys toe box this morning :(
