    LoL, these guys really don't seem to crease on me! Went out this morning, to tea and then two grocery stores and they still essentially look the same. :)

    Gotta love the Jet Black Shell LHS! Did I say workhorse shoe? Shows nothing but a nicely finished loafer for gentlemen ...

    Is it just me, or is there something about black shell. It seems to be the most resistant to significant creasing among the different shades of shell. Mine tend to be thicker and more durable.

    Nice shoes Mike. Equally nice pants. Well done.
    Well done as always Mac.
    Love the AF53's. Looking forward to mine breaking in like these. Nice patina on yours.

    New Bureau Antique LWBs in #8. What a great Black Friday deal, 15% off meant they were about $650 shipped, which is far less than Leffot's version would cost me in-state, at about $790 with tax and shipping. Fit is perfect, color is super dark but I plan on letting these get some great patina. And the antique edge makes them much more wearable on a daily basis than the original dark edge.

    For me it varies pair to pair, but those LHSes don't want to really crease on me, maybe their gray lining is thicker than the tan lining that they use on every other model? :)

    Welp, I've always debated between Leffot's naval and J Crew's PCT. I think I'm gonna pull the trigger on Leffot's version today. Prefer the edging and all eyelets.

    I love the look of the Leffot naval boots, but already own the J.Crew PCT's; can't go wrong with either really. Hopefully you can get in this round's preorder, good luck!

    For me, navals win big with its 360 degree welt. Happy pre-ordering, gentlemen.

    Well it wasn't 5-10 minutes, but still under an hour and the Naval Boots are all gone. When they arrive, they're slated to be my 12th pair of Aldens. Currently on 4 pre-orders:

    1. Leffot Greenwich Reverse Chamois WTB
    2. Context color 8 Tanker
    3. Leathersoul Chocosuede tankers
    4. Leffot color 8 Naval PCT.
