    I am a big fan of the RL cordovan line but these Cigar brixtons have this battle won


    The best of this bunch is the snuff Conley boot. I have previously not purchased these because there were no E widths - that's no longer an issue...


    I have sold my marble suede Indy boots, but they did get a lot of compliments when I did wear them.

    For me they are narrow in the toebox and wide in the heel. It's a tough last to fit properly. I would recommend that you try this one on before you buy it sight unseen. As always, YMMV.

    Leffot's new pre-order page is very interesting, it seems you can request a non-stock size now. They didn't have this option back when I tried to pre-order the navy suede LWB. Hopefully they have this option open if they pre-order those navy suedes again

    The version from Epaulet. Not the best photos, but you get the idea. I bought them in part because they aren't like anything I have. Oh, and shiny brass eyelets and speed hooks. :nodding:

    Very Jazzy, Sir. Especially with that hat!

    Have you considered getting a cane?

    I have a cane somewhere from my college days. Should look for it. Agree with you on that second shot. It's a little racy the way the fly is presented. Apologies to the gentlemen here. A definite hazard of that style of shooting one's feet.
    Ha ha, and then there is this.
