    Clearing my picture folder this morning and found these. I think I posted these long time ago. Just for fun, anyone cares to guess which models these were (the shoes, of course)? The prize will be the watches in the picture. ........................................................NOT.

    Not sure if it is me - but I did get the last 9D. If so, a hearty thank you. :nodding:

    Nice chukkas. I too like chukkas and have many.

    I think the color 4 and black saddle is actually from Leather Soul.

    And the Black Alpine Grain and whiskey saddle is from Blackbird.

    Bingo! The Leathersoul version is in Blucher style (open lace, Derby......whatever they are called)

    I would like to see a picture of the J Gilbert version. Anyone?

    For some reason they stopped stocking Alden

    Leffot does a similar whiskey/black grain saddle, but they put it on a crepe sole, which is not ideal for that model IMO, otherwise I would have picked it up long ago

    Great looking boots!!

    Just curious ..... Am I the only one who doesn't tie the laces around the ankle of the boot with a boot such as the one pictured? I have no objection to it, I just don't happen to do it.

    The wait wouldn't be that bad if those are the ones you really want.

    After all you will have them for an awful long time.
