    It's hard to beat Mama's Fish house in Maui. We always eat there on our last day of the visit.

    Just picked these up today. I like how they are enough different from a 975 to not be redundant as they're a boot and short wing. Liking a lot so far.

    Thanks all. I am very excited about them and I think they will patina beautifully. I like the Barrie last a lot and think it's really nice for a boot.

    Gorgeous. Such a great boot and such a great color.

    Looking great! I have a pair of these as well, and love them. I don't have the 975, but this is my substitute. What a fantastic boot!

    aom cigar ct boots. they're keepers.
    not nearly as dark as last years cigar offerings from sf chukka, leffot's indy, harrison ltd. tassel, or dc ct boots
    i can see potential for lighter tones after a couple of wears.

    Interesting. I called Leffot the other day to ask about the Color 8 LWB with antique and they said they were all spoken for. Guess not...

    Looks like the 10.5 is gone, which is for the best :)

    Hmmm, Mama's sounds like a good idea.
    We haven't been there in years.

    Nice boots. Glad you like them. Wear in good health.

    Walked by AoM this afternoon and just kept my head down and kept walking. If I walked in it would have been all over (assuming nobody grabbed those 11's yet).

    Thanks - super stoked with them.
    Awesome. Yours look great as well.
    :)
    I'm impressed that you had the self control. I would not have been able to restrain myself.
