    Would Steven do odd sizing for a special run of boots? I've asked him about putting my barrie last size (10 1/2 EE) for one of his orders and he wasn't too receptive.

    That particular pair is on the Grant last so you'd have to figure out what size you needed on that last. I could be wrong but in general I dont see why Steven/Leffot would have a problem with pre-ordering a specific non stocked size since the order hasn't been placed yet so in theory he could add whatever sizes he wanted to his run. Just like the Kathy at Alden DC or Tom #8 shortwing order, if enough people express their desire to spend $650 on some shoes things tend to happen. [​IMG]

    Come on guys please email Steven! Let make it happen!

    No he's talking about the "mcarthur" make up as the "other special makeup (not the Whiskey Indy people are talking about) If you're interested in the Ravello captoe see my above post. To add something to this thread, I snapped some pics of my Jcrew Alden captoes in the sun the other day. [​IMG] I just love the rich color of #8

    + 3 for sure. Those are alot like the Leffot pair I posted earlier, but they have extra stitching near the top. Both are quite lovely.


    As soon as some retailer say's they're going to make them I'll sign up immediately!



    Here is the Leffot pair again...

    I emailed Steven and he asked for my size in case they decide to do another run so if other SFers are interested in a Ravello captoe boot as well maybe you all could email him too and we could make this boot happen again! (for less than the pair at Tassels would be due to them coming in internationally).

    Email Steven at\t
    [email protected]




    I have the Leffot version - they are on the Grant last. I still come back to the Tassel's version on the Barrie (Steven at Leffot ordered them on the Barrie and the factory shipped them on the Grant, sort of like the Roy boot starting out on the Barrie and moving to the Trubalance - I guess the customer isn't always right, eh?).

    And no one else shares my fascination with a Scotch Grain shell? The LWB pair that Tassel's made up are high on my list.

    Stunning shoe Uncle.

    Thanks to the folks showing some interest and calling Kathy. Maybe we can get this one made up. Would be a wonderful thing to look forward to 9 months from now!


    thank you
