    The All Weather Walker makeup I really like is the Alden x Leffot Brown Chromexcel model. Don't see many of them out in the wild.

    That leather is not as 'all weather' as scotch grain though. Scotch grain is almost like waterproof or something. Scotch grain is very popular in the rainy English countryside for hunters, etc.

    All around rugged boot? I'm looking for an all around boot that is more rugged - Alden model. I have it down to the 404 Kudu or the Roy boot when they come back out - any thoughts, insights?

    I will probably be selling my Natural Tanker boots from Epaulet size 10D if anyone is interested. About 20 wears on them.

    The 1494 chukka is the tan/sand color.
    Snuff is 1493 and more of rust color.

    Good deal though. The tan chukks are one of my favorite summer shoes.

    Where do you get laces for your chukkas - also, what length

    I have the Kudus, they have been pretty good for two days of snow and a lot of bar action. Woke up Friday with a bunch of glass stuck in the lug sole so that's a plus



    Very tempting on the 403s. I literally just bought a pair of RRL boots but this is a way better deal as I know it will fit. Decisions, decisions...

    I won't ask how the glass got in there - hopefully the cops aren't looking for you. BTW - how is the leather on the Kudus aging?

    Haha no the glass came from a girl falling into one of the busboys holding a tray of glasses and it went everywhere. Aging wise, not much got them from the Barneys sale about a month ago so still breaking in. Will post a pic up later if you want

    Great collection thus far. Where did you get those laces? They look great on the snuff. My snuff chukka's were snug at first, not tight though. Just an FYI, they should loosen a little.
