November 2008

Just received the paperwork that the next couple of items have left Italy, and should be in my hands in about a week or 10 days…..actually, last shipment took 12 to clear Customs, but they have flown.  Inside this shipment is the long awaited (at least I think it is, based on all the emails I have received about this boot)Balmoral Boot in both Dark Cognac Shell Cordovan and #6 Shell Cordovan, as well as the Handstitched, Split-toe Derby in Dark Cognac and #8 Shell Cordovan

Also, looking forward to the next delivery (last before Christmas) I should have the Longwings in Brandy Scotch Shell Cordovan and Whiskey Shell Cordovan for individual clients…..I’m looking for them –



Spoke with Horween Monday and they are sending me enough Whiskey shells for the existing specials as well as a couple pair fill-in on the chukka boot that I need to produce. 

Also, have ordered some shells in Natural and #6, so should be in good shape for awhile.

The Pennystrap in Natural is down to 2 pair……I’ll decide if to fill back in to that loafer or do something else with the Natural Shells – a color I like alot, and have not seen on the market, really.


Whiskey is always a color that is hard to get ahold of, so if you are waiting for a size in the chukka to come available, or would like to reserve a special, please let me know ASAP…..early bird gets the – well, you know….
