Thank you! Good question. I planned to wear them with shorts but I'm not sure about going without socks, or the loafer sock liners.Does anyone have any experience going sockless with StC or the like?Thanks all! [[SPOILER]]
I absolutely have, both in lined and unlined models.I know you're specifically asking Leaves about this but I know that there is a chukka that Koji had some input in.

This is an immaculately maintained pair of short wing bluchers in the beautiful #8 shell cordovan size 7.5EE (wide) on the Barrie last with double leather sole from Alden.These shoes are incredible, it kills me to sell them, but the truth is that I just do not wear them as much anymore.They have been extremely well maintained and have already begun to develop an absolutely gorgeous patina. They have been previously worn and never resoled but they were Topy-ed so the...
This is an well maintained pair of classic unlined snuff suede chukkas in size 8E (wide) on the Leydon last from Alden.They have been well maintained but I've decided to pass them on as I find I just do not wear them as often. They have been previously worn and resoled. As you want to, you can Topy, resole, or send in for Alden restoration when necessary.The upper is unlined and extremely comfortable, I continue to be impressed that they can be worn with virtually...
This is an immaculately maintained pair of straight tip balmoral oxfords in black calf size 8E (wide) on the Hampton last from Alden.They have been extremely well maintained but I've decided to pass them on as I find I just do not wear them as often. They have been previously worn and never resoled but they were completely Topy-ed not long after purchase so the original sole is in excellent shape! As you want to, you can re-Topy or remove the Topy and use the original...
This is a newly factory refurbished pair of tan suede hand sewn loafers in size 8E (wide) on the Van last from Alden.They have just come back from the factory and been warn around the house but I've decided to pass them on in this condition. They have been previously worn and resoled but as you can see they have a new welt and complete outsole. As you need to, you can send them back to Alden for more care.They come with Alden shoe trees, new shoe bags and all original...
I noticed the same but was keeping quiet to prevent being tempted!For all the Mackintosh collectors, I have the DB Monkton and it fits perfect in my size.Should I expect the same fit from the Dunkeld and or Dalkeith? They look a little "roomy".Thank you!
Show us some pictures! (And if was open to the public, not at the Kennedy Center, and you're comfortable sharing, let us DC residents know what event.)
I was going to wait until I had them in hand to post, but in an effort to get us all back to the shoes. Here are teaser photos (from The Armoury) of my spring double order!
I had them before but don't really use them any more. When I used to have them installed, the place charged me $2 USD for each guard....so $4 for a pair of shoes.I'll also say they are not particularly thought of highly on this site.Wow, that is significantly more than I expected. You may have to wait to hear from someone with more experience in invasive cleaning methods. The more detail you can provide to describe what happened (was your shoe soaked through with beer?)...
