    ^^Are these the bluchers or monk straps?

    The bluchers, the monk straps were made in Ravello.

    remainder's photos and jasonfoote303's write-ups about his Unionmade designs have me giddy in anticipation of my creation. My second thoughts have been erased after seeing how wonderful the natural chromexcel leather looks after some wear.

    Alden "produces" a dark brown paste wax that is recomended for Cigar. Alden in SF has it, as I'm sure Shoemart does as well.

    i second your recommendation

    The "Natural" Wingtip Boot

    Wingtip High Boot
    Plaza Last
    Horween Natural Chromexcel
    All Blind Eyelets
    Regular Welt, Close Heel
    Antique Edgetrim
    Single Oiled Leather Flex Sole


    I know there were some skeptics but here's hoping that these will look as amazing in the flesh as they do in my mind!

    Hi All,

    I'm new to style forum. Just curious if any of you have ideas on how i can obtain http://www.leathersoulhawaii.com/wp-...oads/bawt2.jpg they are the BROWN CHROMEXCEL, leathersoul just posted them and by the time i was fitted they sold out :-(
    any ideas?


    If they sold out then you need to wait until they do another order and reserve a pair. I have a pair in size 6D I am returning if that is your size.

    Looking for some help. I'm really into the shape and look of the Alden for Context Roy Boot, and I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of something similar from Alden that I can get before June 2011 when these drop.

    I don't want any surface marks on the shoe other than (possibly) a cap toe. Really just looking for a lifetime pair of boots without too much embellishment. The rawhide strings on the Roy Boot are awesome too, but I don't know if that's just done specifically for Context. Any help is appreciated and thanks a lot!

    These are somewhat similar.
