    About to kop a pair of Alden unlined suede chukkas (w/ 20% discount), how do other people like theirs? I tried a pair on the other day and they were as comfy as wool socks. Had to take a whole size down, though. Anyways, I'm deciding between the khaki and the darker tan. I'm leaning towards khaki, what do you guys think?

    One of the most comfortable shoes I have... You can't go wrong with the suede chukkas.
    Go for the Khaki (rust) color. Easily goes well with denim or chinos.

    I agree. unlined suede chukka is amazing. I have a pair on the Leydon last in E width. I find that Leydon runs slightly narrow.

    Arrow, how I wish you were a 12. You are offering your Ravellos at a great price. GLWS

    just bought these used thinking they would be in the Aberdeen last (where 10.5 is my size), but they're either Barrie or Van last. Lovely shell cordovan. I'm gonna try to figure out a way for them to work for me, but meanwhile I've posted them in B&S. If anyone has any info on them please let me know - I have not seen them anywhere else.

    Yes, I had been looking for a pair of cordovan boots, they also had #8 in modified last but it looked kinda like clown boots so I chose black.

    Shit, Blackbird just sold out of size 9 in light khaki for the chukkas. Anyone know of another place where I could get them for around 20% off?

    Have been to Italy several times but this was a first to the southern part. Gotta' say, renting scooters and driving around like a mad bastard along the coast is something that should be on everyone's bucket list.
