    Yes - and I think the responses to this one will be near unanimous. If you get it on the commando sole, you will be making it more casual, and therefore perhaps defeating your stated purpose.

    ^ Oh thanks, yes, I'm aware of that, and I'm fine with it. More important to have more grip outside here where I live.

    NAMOR, thanks for the suggestion. I think those captoes are too dressy for what I'm after [​IMG]

    I have a pair of #8 PTBs with a commando sole (they were a Alden restoration job before they stopped taking custom jobs) and they are a bit on the casual side. My work is business casual so they are good enough for me but might offload them to fund other purchases.

    Thanks for this, Morgan. Reason I ask is that I have a pair of ravello Day Trippers preordered from Leffot in 9D (Grant last) and I'm just wondering how long they will be in comparison to 8.5 cigar longwings, which I own (Barrie last). This gives me some indication! Appreciate the work.

    Guys, thanks for the responses re #8 PTB. If anyone is interested, my question to AoC got forwarded to J.Gilbert, and Yenni replied that they were going to order this exact thing - a #8 PTB with commando sole. No particular time estimate was given.
    I'll think about it though, maybe I'll leave it as it is with the leather sole, and just have some boots handle those foul conditions - especially with that deal going on at Amore Clothing.

    Holiday weekend? I emailed him Thursday night and he replied early Friday morning. I called him and placed an order. He called me back almost immediately with shipping details. He did mention they were getting a lot of calls from SF members, and his phone was busy for about 20 minutes before I got through. I ordered a #8 LWB for $525. At 20% off, I'll check there first next time.

    Is it a sale at Amore, or are they just 20% cheaper?

    I recently joined the Alden club a couple of months ago and have since purchased a few of their shoes since then. Initialy I got a pair of plain toe bluchers, then a couple of Men's Handsewn Oxford Luxury Comfort Calfskin in brown and black, a pair of Indy Boots, then finally a pair of Books Bros #8 Cordovan Leather Wingtips.

    Great shoes.
