 My rivets fit me perfectly in a 30.  I sized down to a 29 in the Wilshire and I'm glad that I did.  They were pretty snug (but not too tight) at first but have stretched a very small bit to perfection.  If you think the waist in a 30 is too tight from the measurements, I wouldn't expect it to stretch very much.
 This happens to pretty much all my shell boots/shoes.  I'll let the experts tell you why it happens but if you put the trees in the shoes, and then use your thumb or finger and just rub the crease where that rough line is, it will go away.  For some reason, creases in the shell often do this.  Vigorous rubbing will get them smooth again.  Nothing to worry about.
Last I heard, opinions is that it will never happen.  Too many people signed up for it and Alden presumably won't do orders that are too big.  And that's aside from the presumed scarcity of cigar.  We can always hope and it won't hurt as we didn't put down any money.
 The C&J site lists whether a shoe/boot comes standard in any width other than E.  I don't recall that many do.  I'll leave it to the C&J experts to chime in on this one.
CXL is right up there with shell for me.
 Wouldn't they call that an 'F'?
Now why didn't I think of that! 
For those boots with non-leather soles, most of mine have previously been commando.  I recently acquired a couple pairs with Dainite soles and I have been quite impressed.  Definitely prefer the silhouette of them to a commando sole, although I guess I could see how the commando would theoretically provide more traction.   We don't get much snow in El Paso.
I have been quite satisfied with my favorite shoe trees, the Woodlore Epic twin tube trees.  But I splurged when I ordered the whiskey Harlechs and ordered the standard C&J trees (mainline I think it was).  I was shipped the older mainline version with the single tube trees, not the twin tube new trees that have presumably replaced the single tube version.   My comment is that I am amazed at how well the C&J trees fit my Harlechs.  They also fit the Conistons really...
 Alright, MH!  How about you, rydenfan?  Did you commit?  I'm actually glad they're closing the window a week early.  But not glad that Fok is having surgery, of course.
