    So nice. You need to add whiskey for the trifecta.



    Looking good, as always, uncle.

    My new Brown Chromexcel Pitt Boots from LeatherSoul. I was in the Waikiki store last week in complete beach bum wear and had a very nice chat with Kuni, but couldn't make up my mind on what to buy. When I returned to the Mainland, Kuni helped tracked down the boots for me (on his day off) and then Bryan @ LSBH shipped them out with complimentary shipping in CA. I really appreciate the great service I received on my first purchase from LS!

    LS Pitt boots hands-down - they are on the Barrie last (versus the Trubalance last for the Roy) and have the waterloc sole (versus the crepe sole with leather toe piece for the Roy).

    Never seen the Roy but what he said. All my Aldens are on the Barrie last and I'm liking the waterlock sole better than crepe. In fact, I'm thinking of sending my ShoeMart seconds Brown suede chukkas with crepe soles to Alden restoration to be resoled with a waterlock sole.

    Thanks. I'm really liking your pics on the Epaulet thread. I'm going to have to pick up some clothes from them...

    i love the 6 eyelet chukka.... make a brogue version already! (in cordo)


    PSA: What must be those J.Crew stylist ebay accounts are unloading a bunch of new indy boots, chukkas, and even some perf toe cordo boots at around 20% off.

    6 eyelet chukka is quite nice - much nicer than the leather soul stock pics.
