    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    You could also try Rancourt. They don't do cigar or a brown shell as stock, but they might custom dye to achieve the effect. $190, I think, so got BB sale price, and the style is fairly casual.

    I just got these off of eBay today, did the buy it now for $589. My first cigars, and my first LWBs. I have been looking for cigar cap toe balmorals, but have not been able to find them in my size. I planned on getting a #8 LWB, since I like that color so much. I am a little concerned, as these have not arrived yet and I am already thinking about my next purchase.

    I know it is supposed to be a rule that you do not wear bluchers with suits, but I may have to deviate from that one.

    I was eyeing these on ebay as well. Congrats! Btw, I think you can use these bluchers with the right suit.

    You should see if you can use Leathersoul B.H. as the meet up place. It's only right.

    Agreed. It seems silly to care whether or not a shoe is a bal or a blucher with a suit. It's a very minor choice. I wear bluchers in formal situations constantly.

    In SF for the weekend visiting a friend before we drive back down to LA tomorrow.

    Stopped by Unionmade to check out the McLaren in person. Decided to hold off and check out Alden SF. I was really hoping to pick up the #8 captoe boot but it was far too red in natural lighting for my tastes. I suppose it was just that pair.

    I went back to Unionmade and pulled the trigger on the McLaren's. They just continue to grow on me!

    Will take proper photos tomorrow in the light. All I have are a few quick pics I snapped on my phone to send to the lady to see what she thought.

    P.S. I was told that these were the last 8.5 pair. I just checked online and that seems to be true. Sorry if anyone else was thinking about these in that size! [​IMG]

    I'm glad you grabbed the 8.5:) The last thing I need is another pair of longwings, and I was trying to resist those.

    They look great, man.

    I think Franz Boone has quickly become the seller with the most innovative and interesting alden designs
