    Thanks guys, very good info here. The only pair of boots I have with speed hooks is a pair of 403 Indy's, so I wasn't contemplating getting those replaced with eyelets. I was just looking at some other boots and wondering if it would be worth it to buy a new pair with speed hooks and have them converted to eyelets. All in, it's probably not really worth it to me. I prefer all eyelets, but depending on the type of boot, speed hooks don't really bother me all that much.

    I've been kicking myself over the past few weeks for not picking up a pair of black longwings from J. Crew while they still had those incredible discounts going. I could have really used a pair for the price that they were going at. :)

    Thanks Alcibiades. I actually picked these up after you found out Alden DC got a restock. Now I'm on the hunt for ravello chukka boot on the barrie.

    Haha - thanks. Still learning the lingo.

    Longwings are when the brouging wraps all the way around the foot, no?

    I've also got the Ravello ptb (with commando soles) and I hope that mine will look as good as yours one day. I am of course following the Mac method!

    Yeah, it's when there's the one "strap" of leather that does that.

    I think those awesome discounts are gone for good. Alden must have caught on to J Crew's pricing.


    I'm also gonna put in for that LS Plaza Captoe in #8 pre-order. Let's hope the world doesn't really end in 2012.


    Uncle Mac - simply superb, as always.
