    Englade, my intentions in asking you to make rational and well put together discussion has never been anything other than my attempt to clear the waters of misunderstanding as well. I don't enjoy arguing either. I can see that you have become quite upset over this discussion (is it ye who doth protest too much?), and for what it's worth, my intention was never to unfairly malign anyone either. As Mediahound and I had cleared up before you and I started our discussion, Mediahound had stated that he doesn't buy shoes using the premise that I said I disagree with. Therefore, my comments were a generalization at a particular human tendency that I find frustrating. The comments were not aimed at anyone specific.

    I just missed out in my size a few months ago on the Cigar PTB's and all these pics are not helping. I love the simplicity of the PTB.

    Their service is incredible and their selection is expansive... That's where I buy my socks too...

    I've been a day late & a dollar short in my quest for the cigar PTB for what seems like a year. Most recently I found them at some overseas dealers like The Bureau and Frans Boone but kept holding out hope for a CONUS dealer. I was regularly calling Alden Madison Ave., Alden DC, Carmel, etc. and would check TSM site at least weekly. I just happened across them this week. Don't give up hope. Note, with the apocalyptic nature of the "Shell Famine of 2013", if you do see them you have to be prepared to order immediately. I actually saw them at TSM about 12-18 months ago and figured I'd wait and call in the order the following morning. By 9AM, my size was gone.

    Pastor - those tan suede LWB's are great. I'm on a pre-order with LS for a pair that was placed back in January 2012. I was hoping they would be ready before this summer, but I'm not gonna hold my breath.

    These are on the Leydon last and I got them from Epaulet a few years back. I really enjoy them a lot and they are one of the most comfortable shoes I own.

    I'm in Atlanta for the weekend... Stopped by H Stockton. I saw a few interesting models (snuff suede bal captoe, brown CXL tassel loafer and a brown CXL George boot) that I had not seen before. Call them if you have interest
