    Thanks, I do like the tremont. It's easier for me to go a bit dressier with this last and this whiskey shade. I originally wanted a lighter whiskey, but I'm really liking the way this patina looks. This shade is not as dark as my ravellos and still looks amazing in direct sunlight. Enjoy your pair.

    Thank you Uncle Mac.



    Thanks Organika.

    These feel extremely light and comfortable. Two more pairs of cordo and I think I'll slow down for this year. :satisfied:

    Incorrect sir, Moulded Shoe carries the Alden commando sole & can do a conversion to make it a commando sole.

    This is SO much better than the normal PTB. SO much.

    I picked up some snuff suede boots off of ebay a few days ago, and was disappointed with the fit. I have a pair of Indy's which fit well, and assuming that because both boots are on the trubalance last, I got them in the same size. These seem to be shorter and narrower than my indys. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm not sure if it was this individual pair of boots, or this model in general.

    I don't know if I love the plantation crepe either... bummer. They are good looking boots though.

    PUBLIC SERVICE ANMOUNCEMENT:

    Leather Soul - Beverly Hills just received the Style Forum Boot in #8 (Plaza Last, Medallion Toe) today. Little too narrow for my wide feet, but I hope that this helps somebody.

    Also, Whiskey LWB have arrived to Alden San Fran and Pre-orders have begun and hopefully won't be over for TSM's Ravello Wing Tip Boot with leather sole.

    If anybody knows of anything other arrivals or finds stuff out in the future, please let me know. I am a 9D. I have a brand new J, Crew Ravello LWB and a Ravello Chukka , neither of which had touched even carpet. I'll make a formal post as my intent was not to break rules. Just wanted to let you guys know of three awesome new offerings.

    My Aldens are ready to be shipped after pre-ordering Whiskey LWB from Alden SF last summer (outstanding service btw).

    Can't wait to get it. I've seen these with denim and the looks are incredible. My collection has started: Natural Indy's (Epaulet), 4 eyelet color 8 PTB (LS Hawaii) and now Whiskey LWB with antique edgetrim (Alden SF).:nodding:

    I've owned and sold both the snuff boot like yours and similar Roy boot because of this. Neither fit like an Indy despite being on Trubalance. Luckily my AF 53 PTs fit like a champ.
