    I wish you would have left a little longer! haha. It was up like a day!!
    After I saw it on eBay I looked thru about 20 pages of the marketplace and couldn't find it. I had to google "Cigar PTB" before I found it.

    I'm still waiting on my tan suede LWB pre-order from LS, hopefully I'll have that in 6 months. I would get the navy suede LWB from Leffot if they would let me pre-order a narrow width. And I wish I would have gotten the snuff suede LWB on the Leydon when it was available. Unfortunately I don't think they will be running that style again. Where did you get your snuff suede LWB?

    Excluding your argyles, congratulations on a very nice and non-ubiquitous Alden Thread combo. Your good looking Monk-straps don't get enough love here. Wear them in good health sir.

    Anyone see the shoe mart last videos yet? It's on most of their shoes and on YouTube.

    One of three: Thor boot. Cigar, Plaza, all eyelet, dark edge trim, wingtip boot. Or cigar atom. Maybe not the last one because there's a small chance it will pop up at Leffot again.

    The market will establish the price. More power to ya. Good luck.

    $750, given the regular price of cigar and its lack of availability, is a very decent price.

    Not to far away is the day you can have your foot 3D scanned, then some post work, then 3D print your last and send to Alden. I want to go first.

    The LWB is from J Crew. I am considering the snuff suede plain toe boot also from J Crew, but I'm not sure I'm 100% on board with the crepe sole. Best of luck with those tan suede LWB. Sorry you're having to wait so long!

    I know this is blasphemous here, but I am considering the AE shell chukka. It has three eyelets. The Alden shell finish is superior though.

    I loved my J Crew suede LWB, but the stitching came undone on one of them. They let me return the shoes for a full refund nearly a year after I purchased them. That's some pretty top rate customer service, if you ask me. Unfortunately they didn't have my size in the same shoe so I ended up getting the Cadet Shell Blucher instead. I'm definitely going to buy more shoes from them.

    I have my eyes on that same boot, too [​IMG]. I have a pair of desert boots and I love the crepe sole.

    That suede LWB might become my white whale...

    Welcome. Your combo looks great - real gumption to combine bold plaid with argyles and you do it well. And finally argyles that bear some color relation to the pants they are with. It looks fantastic, as do your aldens. Thanks for posting.

    RTP, I own both and confirm the third eyelet makes a huge difference in the fit and comfort. I am considering having a cobbler add a third eyelet to my Alden Chukkas
