    Hey Tom how about a double oiled sole on that color 8 shortwing. Ohio stays wet.

    Yup, sounds good to me.

    How does it work tom, do you require half down to reserve a size?

    Thanks!

    LS x SF boot in #8 on the Plaza last today.

    Those light brown laces on your LS x SF are spectacular. Did they come with the pair?

    They were double. Here's the first go round for them. Man that is a gorgeous shoe. Any chance of a restock on them?

    I was lucky enough to get a pair of these off of B&S. Beautiful shoe!

    Anyone else happen to grab a pair of the burnished tan wingtip boots from J. Gilbert? The leather my pair is made out of is really odd. It's rough and has almost a brittle texture. They don't want to take a shine either. My other burnished tan pairs of Aldens are smooth and supple. Should I be concerned/peeved by this or just accept the fact that my pair came from a worn out old cow?

    Very comfortable. Pretty fast "break in". Not as comfortable as crepe, obviously, but seemingly faster "break in" and maybe a slightly better comfort level than true double oak soles.
