    Thanks again for all the info....EG MTO might be a bit out of my price range right now. Maybe I could check with LS to see how much of a premium there would be on making up something like this on the Plaza or Grant last.

    I really like the look of the Alden captoe boots, but am really confused by all the models/leather options/color options they offer. I'm looking for a sleek/dressy last (leather sole) and a rich brown or mahogany color. What am I looking for specifically?

    Plaza Last. Check out the Leathersoul entry from September 8th. You probably want that without the speed hooks and in calf or cordovan #8.

    EDIT- also the entry from the 5th...seems to show the plaza last better on that boot.

    This is spot on. I have the Leather Soul captor boot, #8 on the plaza last. A nice boot and the plaza last gives it a dressier look in my opinion.

    Good points. I always forget about VAT.

    Damn, really wouldn't be that bad. For some reason I had it in my head that the bottom line on these would end up being close to a grand after everything was added up.
    Wish I would have seen these prior to this turning in to a two new pair Alden shell this week.

    Speaking of, my LS short wings won't be in my hands until Monday. How about some pics from those who have them already?

    Uncle,

    Those cigar captoe bluchers are excellent. I have them in #8 -- Aberdeen last.

    May I ask where you purchased them?

    And, nice to see them with the Bordeaux Marcolianis. My favorite pair of socks.
