    Grant last color 8 cap toe boots. Fresh after the Mac Method. Most definitely used SnapSeed for the edits.

    Looks like you might have the exact same carpet I have. ;)

    My color 8 boots after a shine session last fall. Poured on the contrast in post just for the El Argentino school of image editing [​IMG].

    I am a fan of nicely saturated, heavy contrast images. It certainly has its place. Note, my attempt at mirror polishing the cap toe didn't last that long. I wanted to be able to dress them down. So after all that work, I applied a bit of renovateur and brushed them out. It removed just enough wax to reduce the mirror effect but still look sharp (IMO).

    I wouldn't be surprised if another run of the LS cigar jumper boots were made before the Thor boot is made. What was the last time a group MTO order was actually produced? The whiksey Indy boots a few years ago?

    I'm getting the weird sensation that someone is trying to make me call Kathy at Alden DC so she can put me on a Cigar boot wait list.

    Everybody's got that carpeting. In three thousand years some alien will dig it up and confirm we were a bunch of morons.

    They stock this boot in a variety of widths and reorder it quite a bit...this boot is one of Alden's must own boots IMO

    Yeah, or even another run of the cigar boot on Plaza, which would actually be pretty cool. Or I too should get on the DC list; nothing against the commando sole, I've just been holding out for something else.

    They also offer a monthly 10% promo code in their SF affiliate thread that is applicable to Aldens.

    I inquired about these boots a month ago and they still had them in stock, just not in my size... Closest in stock was 9.5E. I suppose they could be all sold out by now.
