    pretty much exactly what I'm thinking of, although Rider pricing is kinda steep for me lol

    thanks everyone!

    Just came in today! My first pair of Alden shell cordovan. The Cigar Indy boot! I just wanted to share and thank you guys on the forum for posting such great info. These fit great, and look amazing.

    Wish list:
    Ravello cap toe boot
    Whiskey longwings

    I know I'm looking for unicorns, but if anyone spots them please send me a pm. I hope you all have a nice week.

    The smart money says Plaza. The shape of the shoe is quite similar to the Alden for BB WT Bal on the M-75 last (like plaza).

    I think Alden buys all those hides in such large volumes, they don't have to charge as much for it. I usually stick to Alden for my cordovan needs.

    Was going to say this ^^ Carmina's Cognac should fit what you're looking for.

    I didn't want to post about this until I had some results to report, but now that I do...

    I have complained ad nauseam about how poorly LHS have fit me over the years, but that I have kept trying them. Seems silly, but they LOOK so comfortable that I keep getting suckered in. My last foray into that shoe led me to buy a ravello pair and employ a vamp raiser. Close, but no dice, had to sell them.

    However, emboldened by the purchase of the vamp raiser - and the receipt of several gift cards, and the ability to employ my corporate discount, making them (relatively) cheap - I bought a pair of the Brooks unlined LHS in #8. Yes, I am stubborn as hell.

    I used the Mac method to break them in, and slowly stretched the vamp using said vamp raiser (and generously applied stretching fluid)...with fantastic results! I love them. Super comfortable, and they've gotten moreso with each subsequent wear.[​IMG]
