    Just want to chime in on the Boots with the hooks...hate em...feel it relegates them to casual wear only...I wish more people made the officer boot style with all holes for lacing. I know Epaulet has a cigar shell Indy like that now, and that will be my next Alden once I find another boot in cigar, ravello, or whiskey thats a touch more dressy.

    Any out there that fit my criteria on a Barrie 9D?


    R,

    How about:

    Ravello Shell NST

    Cigar Shell NST

    Ok, about to pull the trigger on a pair of wingtip boots but I want them to be versatile (i.e. wear casual but also with dress pants and a suit). For those with a commando sole, can this be done or are commando sole shoes primarily for casual looks?

    For all-around wear I'd get the leather sole or at least the waterlock. Commandos with a suit seem like early punk..

    Are there any examples of what a #8 shoe (any model) looks like with the antique edge trim? Only dark leather I've seen this on is cigar, which looks great, but that's not a very good comparison.
    the bureau has a #8 longwing with antique edge trim

    But Bureau are selling those longwings for approx. $930. Which is a bit much even for Aldens.

    Yes, the one that says Barrie last but is clearly not.

    I know you mentioned the Epaulet Cigar Indy. I think that may be the one boot on the trubalance last that can be worn with a suit. So if you are looking that dressy, I'd go with that.

    man, i'm really kickin myself now. wanted to pull the trigger on cigar long wings at shoemart in Jan with the 10% discount .

    Now the discount is GONE and so is my size. Plus, I'm told there won't be any more for at least a year.

    Damn. You snooze, and somebody else wears your shoes.


    Is there really that long of a wait for Cigar LWBs?
