    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Uncle, those boots are absolutely amazing! Are those from the old Leather Soul run?

    Very nice boots.

    One of the only Alden boot models I would still like to add to my collection.

    Those Cigar WT boots are just amazing. One of my favorite Alden styles for sure. I cross my fingers that the chance arises again in the future to own a pair.

    Those Cigar WT's of Mac's are really something, such rich tones. I wish the recent cigar offerings from Alden remotely resembled these!

    [​IMG]. Not sure why these lady calf loafers are called "Loden" when they are Olive. Horweens Loden cxl is actually a fern green. [​IMG]

    Uncle,

    Are those cigar on Plaza WT boots? Wow.

    I've decided a grail shoe for me:

    Cigar NST on Barrie with commando soles, medium antique edge, and all eyelets.

    Yes, please! What last though?
    Except I'd prefer speedhooks.

    The only place I think I have ever even seen something close to this is Leather Soul (theirs had speedhooks). I have been in the hunt for a very similar makeup for a while now as well.
    I have no clue if LS is reruning these but even if they were they are not allowed to go to new customers. You must have a long rich history with them. Which I am not sure how you get? You must have to buy 30 pairs of Island Slippers and 20 pairs of New Balance......cause you cant get there these days buying Aldens.

    If money and "experience" are the case, just buy some lobbs then.

    Morning gents.

    I wanted to find a briefcase to go with my ravello shell; with no luck south of $2000. So i decided to make my own.

    I mess around with leatherworking in my spare time so decided to take on the project.
    This is the closest match i could find locally. It's waxed cow shoulder. Super stiff with a great feel/hand.

    It's fully saddle stitched, by hand, 9 stitches per inch (no machine stitching, no rivets). If i were to do it again i would change a few things.

    I thought I would share.

    Sorry for the poor lighting.

    Wow. I'd say you do more than "mess around" in your spare time. That looks amazing. Well done.
