    Thanks for the chukka suggestions Alcibiades. The cigar and ravello versions certainly look great.

    picked up a pair of cordovan ptb from BB with 30% off....nice......would be better if tax and shipping didn't add back in $50 but still a good price imo.

    For all the chukka haters I decided to go with some Ravello today

    All the talk yesterday on the Cigar PTBs made me reach for mine this morning.

    Have a productive day gentlemen.

    Very nice, I still didn't have a chance to start Mac method on my new Cigar Atoms.

    Thank you Steel.

    That reminds me, I need to get Mac-ing tonight to get a scratch out of these.

    Cigar day for me too. No plain toe though.

    Do your cigars have an olive under tone? Looking at these, it seems there's some dark green spots going on.

    Joshua: Yes, I have noticed an olive undertone on these PTBs as well as my LWBs. My cigar Indys and my cigar WT boots don't seem to have it.

    I think I have a new favorite - unlined PTBs from Alden DC

    [​IMG]


    They are comfortable right out of the box and look so sleek - here is how they look next to a double leather soled LWB:

    Dr D, those look sleek!

    I'm not familiar with the benefits of the unlined PTBs. Can someone explain please? Thanks.

    Question for all you Alden Genii: I'm a 13D in the AE MacNeil (welted 7-97 Last). It seems the only Cordovan Alden LWB I can find (that isn't Color 8) is a Whiskey in 12E. Is there any chance this might work for me and my clownish feet?

    Much softer, more comfortable and will give some pretty cool creases.
