    I would love a full brugue boot in cigar.
    975 would have to be with antiqued edge since I already have the 4060 with black edge.

    Agreed. Natty cxl is such an amazing leather. I think the natty ptb is one of aldens best casual offerings. On my want list for sure.

    Guys, the subject of international shipping has come up several times recently what, with all the amazing make ups at overseas shops. Here's the form - "Declaration for Free Entry of Returned American Products" - Frans included with my saddles, when they were shipped to me "Back in the USA:"


    [​IMG]

    I'm assuming this is what prevents additional entry fees/duty. Probably a standard form they always use - shoes were shipped in late November/early December 2014 but the form is dated 1/14/2014

    I don't know how to rotate pics on SF - let me know if you do, and I'll glady take care of it so it's a bit easier to read.

    One of my favorite LWBs Mike, congrats! I'm a little surprised as I was under the impression that Alden DC's Natty chrmxl Lwbs came with a natural welt. I got mine from TSM to avoid the natural welt. Enjoy those chrmxl beaters; they can handle it with grace! [​IMG]

    Not sure if this impacts you, but Alden DC had several D and E widths available for a little over $100 off on Natty and Navy CXL lwbs.

    That's another example of a Frans twist on the classic Alden 4060 pattern. Looks terrific to me! Definitely adds some character to them boots!

    Thanks for the psa dubs. I have made a bunch of purchases recently so I am on a little break. Great pickup though!

    Thank You! I'm not sure what model they are. I do know that they are Cigar not color #8.

    I think they are the Cigar version of these.

    I noticed Context has restocked their Roy Boot. Here's mine, which I purchased several years ago, fresh from a family hike this morning:

    Are you still down there on Tuesday? I was thinking about coming down and picking up those black grant Indys that Kathy has set back for me.

    I recently picked up a natty CXL LWB too, from Winn Perry: same antique edge but with commando sole and metal eyelets (painted brown). Absolutely love how natural chromexcel looks as a longwing: details of the shoe really pop.

    I can see the temptation there. Wish my natural shell LWB would hurry up to remove the desire for the cxl.

    Any idea what sizes were left?
