    They carry some nice Luccheses, which are great boots (still made in El Paso, unlike many other old school brands, eg, Fryes.). I don't know if I'd buy any of their special order Luccheses, though - some of the classic models are just about as nice, and cheaper as well.

    I was looking at a pair of the classic Roper's in baby buffalo, incredibly soft and comfortable (even more so than any other leather shoes that I have). The special orders are somewhat interesting, and they have swatches for just about every legal leather available on the market. Something casual in hippo shoulder or a heavy grain calf leather would be nice, along with maybe another pair in baby alligator.

    I have a pair of Ropers in oily calf, which I really like. They look good with skinnyish jeans, and I can wear them w/ khakis to my bus/cas office. And the more you beat the shit out of them, the better they look. But I can imagine living outside of Texas and being reluctant - they aren't conversation starters down here. My girlfriend has a pair in a crackly goat that are nice as well.

    that's correct. +10 UPS shipping. no sales tax, which is nice. gal at the store I ordered from seemed to know what she was talking about, in reference to how this last would fit me based on my experience with the Barrie last. as much as I like a double soled shoe, this one seems better single sole.

    Hey GS, can you tell me how this color Alden differs from the classic Cordovan #8 coloring in true light? Also, any enlightenment on the purpose of a steel shank running through the sole... does it make it more durable or something?

    They look sweet though, great pickup!

    ^^ I should have the shoes on tues so I'll know what color they look like IRL. The gal who helped me out at J Gilbert said the Alden Carmel site's pics were pretty accurate, that the burgundy is def more "red" than "black" (which is how I would describe #8 cordovan, as being more black than red)

    Righ, it looked like the pics potentially may have a bit much light in the pics (for overexposure). Whether they do or don't, it's a great color. If you get a chance, an update on 'em would be cool when they arrive.

    New vintage crocodile custom strap for my PAM233 (yeah I also got the 233 2 weeks ago, which well & truly pushed me out of the July Club.. In fact it will push me out for the rest of the year!)

    Nice watch strap. It has some real character to it.

    awesome, one of my fave boots I own what color did you get? Mine are the "sigaro", but it's more of a burgundy sigaro than brown sigaro. ^^Guido, strap is sick looking! looks like it'll crawl away.

    I tried on some Paul Smith x Triumph boots at Neiman's but they were not the same style you have, GS. These were lace ups but they still had a zipper up the inside. They were nice boots but I had no intention of buying them when I tried them on because they were like $700.00 or so.
