Pretty momentous news published in AAAC. You're in luck - Two new dress lace-up boots are in final stages of development for introduction for the Fall season next year. They look great, too. One is similar to the boot we made for characters in the movie Titanic. The other is a balmoral captoe. Requests on Ask Andy definitely inspired our efforts. Best wishes, Paul Sounds like (and I am praying it will be) on the 5 last. [It has to be on the 5 last. ] I am envisioning a Park Avenue frame built into a full top dress boot. Sleek, fitted - great under a suit but able to shrug off slush and rain (when properly pre-treated ). This product would be completely unique among US manufacturers. Finally, the prospect of a readily available, affordable balmoral captoe dress boot in a variety of colors! Black would be an ideal staple but can you imagine a dark brown or merlot? Insane! Think of the possibilities. Chestnut or Brandy for the spring/summer... Special order in shell cordovan... Special order with medallion instead of captoe... I am drooling. Ugh, I just don't want to wait until next fall to get them. Maybe if enough people express interest, we can get a pre-order or advance delivery thing happening?
