    Yep, Barrie.

    They had a table full of Lobbs and EG 50% if you want suede. Pretty limited sizes. Mostly elfin.

    A few people remarked at how dark these cigar captoes looked - Here is a photo out in low sunlight. These are among my most complimented shoes (probably top 2 or 3)

    Thanks, gents. I'll inquire about the boots. Sadly, elfin sizes won't work.

    Yes, grant last from Alden DC. I believe all of Alden DC's grant lasted captoes have commando soles (they have black, color 8 and cigar).

    Thank you for posting these pictures. You encouraged me to snag these off the shoemart seconds list. That makes 5 pairs of Alden shell for me in the last two months - time to subscribe to the no purchases thread.

    Nice ranger mocs. Frans Boone has a crepe soled version I am interested in but I don't want to pay ~$800 for it

    Thanks Alcibiades. I have a chamois Ranger with crepe sole and it's a nice combo. But the color 8 version is so nice. Someone mentioned a while back that they would like to see an unlined shell Ranger - honestly that would be the only thing (for me) that could improve this shoe. It also feels a bit narrower than my non-shell Ranger. I've noticed a few Ranger pics online where it sometimes appears quite wide.

    That DC makeup is a fantastic boot. I've had my name on a list for those for a while and would love a pair as nice and versatile as that.

    I finally got some Renovateur on these guys and they look even better than before. There's a slight tear in the shell at the penny slot but that just givesbthe she character. Would any of you guys see if Alden would repair that? I doubt its worth my time - plus like I said they have character.

    When I was on the phone with Alden DC last week I think she mentioned they had at least one of the cigar boots still in stock, but she said it was an E width so I didn't have her confirm availability.

    Sorry, no.
    We were brainstorming after she confirmed the Ravello LWB wasn't going to be available for me. As soon as I heard "E" I declined and we moved on.
