    Thanks! The Leffot #8 LWB in the 9D was sold out from underneath me (prolly by the same guy who sold NYR the #4 Atoms), so I purchased these instead. Love 'em, the edgetrim really makes the difference.

    They're better than the LWB, I think. The ace LWBs have always been cigar and ravello.

    Just wondering what is inspiring a price-hike on leather goods? Just inflation making its rounds, or was there some sort of shortage that's now affecting supply?

    Just want to say that I am surprised at how comfortable the double leather outsole is. I love leather soles but was never a fan because I could feel every little rock and crevices on the street but the double leather soles feels like wearing rubber soles.

    So, I've been considering the 405 boot in Natural Chromexel, but after the love the Cordovan #8's been getting on here, should I just go big and pick these up for a first Alden purchase?

    I mean, starting off with the best can't be wrong, right? I don't love, though, the commando heel. I'd prefer the standard one on the Indys.

    I think the Indy pattern works better on lighter boots like cigar and chromexcel. For color 8, go with a longwing, tanker boot, cap toe, tassel, etc.

    My first post here after lurking for several months. I just received the Leather Soul Plaza Wingtip boots in natural chromexcel last week. These are my first pair of shoes/boots in natural chromexcel and I'm very happy with them. Here are a few pictures:
