    ^ Lovely -- I have the boot version of that shoe (the RL Giffords that I got for $300 on sale!).

    Some better pics of my FAVOURITE shoe in my shoe-robe: alden whiskey captoe bals on the aberdeen last. I am not a big fan of the lighter whiskey shade, but these shoes are darker and they are darkening to a beautiful shade of brown. Not quite reddish-brown like ravello, but with more earthy yellow undertones.

    Still think aldens are blobby? THINK AGAIN

    I like the cigar Longwings, Sri. They are very nice, I plan to get a pair of those in chukkas in Cigar and that will probably be it. Oh yeah,I also need a pair of NSTs in Cigar but I can't find those on Aberdeen last.

    Used to ogle these in the shop, 'Oh no, Sir, they never go on sale!'. Gulp. Took the plunge. C&J Pembroke, Double sole with Dainite. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Pembroke: last 325, tan scotch grain calf, dainite soles and storm welt Cardiff: last 325, tan calf, double leather soles , no storm welt I prefer the Pembroke, a double leather sole without storm welt doesn't looks good.
