    In honor of hitting 100 posts, thought I would share a photo of my first day wearing the #4/black saddles that I recently got from Leathersoul. So lucky to have got them during the spring cleaning sale. :slayer: I love them.

    I think you are absolutely right. IME, even on their shell boots, Alden's pull tabs are calfskin.

    These are just crazy-good. Probably my favorite of anything they've posted (with the possible exception of the equally crazy-good cigar Pitt boot). I'll second your Slayer: [​IMG]

    I didn't even think about the material of adding a pull tab but might have to ask my cobbler to try it on my brown CXL pitt boots or brown calf wingtip boots.

    Gentlemen-


    Having just moved to Sausalito, CA, I was doing my due diligence with the local taverns...I was using the rest room of one of these find establishments when I noticed a photograph on the wall by a famous photographer of a young couple on the beach in France...in 1926...and being the dork that I am, I was drawn to the shoes on the gentleman...and I swear that it looks like he is wearing #8 captoe boots on the Barrie last...- what do you think ?

    I tried to get my GF to check out the photo but she wouldn't go into the men's room...

    :laugh:
