What are folks' thoughts about the new Essex collection of Horween vegetable tanned leather?   The natural color looks amazing to me. Thought this was cordovan at first glance, but apparently not.   Any recommendations on how little or much care one would want to put into the shoes to develop a nice patina?
The Zug, And thanks for the info. Not sure I'll end up with them. But didn't even want to consider them if they're not going to fit.
 Considering an online purchase of these boots in the 64 last. I'm a solid 11 in Alden Barrie last. How do you (or anyone who cares to weigh in on this) think an EG UK11 on a 64 last would fit me on these lasts?
Thanks. I just did.
Does anyone here have any experience with the Morley model with the napped side of the leather on the outside?   I'm also wondering how one would treat napped leather, and how it holds up to the elements.   Thanks!
How can I find out which tailors in my area use Ariston fabrics? I live in Boston and am interested in a tweed suit.
First pics on the forum for me, so I hope these are okay. The dim lights in my hallway don't really do the color justice, as they are bluer than they appear here. And they're so comfortable, it feels like I'm walking on pillows. You can already see where they're molding to my feet after a day of pretty heavy use.  
Just got my ranger mocs in Parisian Blue and they are amazing. I can't recommend the color enough. It stands out just enough without being obnoxious.   Two questions:   - Do folks recommend using shoe trees with these? - What products, if any, should I apply for protection?
I was skeptical about the fit, as I'm not a super-slim guy. And I assumed these would be the shirt version of skinny jeans. But they're not. They fit true to size. I'm a 16.5, 35, and they fit like a glove, but give room for motion. Frankly, I look better in these shirts than anything else I own. The lack of billowing is so good, it's almost off-putting at first. And the fabric and stitching AND COLLAR are much more than I expected at this price point.   If you're in...
I've been planning on buying a pair of Baxter Ranger Mocs. My head says to buy them in brown, but my heart screams Parisian Blue. Unfortunately, buying both is not an option right now. I'd really appreciate some opinions on the versatility and upkeep of the blue.   1. Casual versatility: I know I can wear the blue with jeans, khakis, chinos (army green, tan, grey), my Nantucket reds, and summer shorts. I can also wear them with varying shades of cords (tan, cranberry)....
