    Cigar Indy's are one of the most beautiful products Alden's ever done.

    I estimate that eBay takes 10% total with all the fees... if not more :(

    its more than that. final value fees are about 10 percent alone.

    Velomane, thank you for the info, that helps a lot. Can you confirm that the shoe is on the Barrie last?

    For some reason LS' model looks sleeker than J. Gilbert's even if they are both on the same last.

    I do believe they are. I sized mine accordingly and they fit fine. Also, Alden Madison has the same model listed, top right corner.

    On the photos for the 9-eyelet wingtip boot on TSM, the #8 and Ravello show 4 hooks and 5 eyelets for the laces, while for the #4, it shows 9 eyelets (no hooks). Does it actually differ per color? My preference is to have the hooks, and I don't understand why the #4 shows no hooks.

    The Ravello has hook. The #4 does NOT.

    IMO, no hooks = cleaner look, more dressy
