Anyone familiar with the Linton jacket (not waxed) http://m.orvis.com/store/product.aspx?pf_id=2cyt&adv=586963&cm_mmc=Orvismanubrand-_-Manubrand-x-clothing-ca-dsa-_-Manubrand-barbour-clothing-x-x-x-x-_-_inurl:barbour&gclid=CLmUqcKb2c4CFUprfgodjiIJ9A I'm not interested in waxed jackets but wonder if this is a good value at $350?
Nailed the fit on my first pair but not sure about the fabric. It states 100% premium cotton but the sheen and feel make me think of cheap worsted wool pants with a little lycra or maybe non wrinkle treated cotton? Or maybe I am just not used to cotton woven like this but rather rougher twill? Here is the fabric http://luxire.com/products/soft_brown_cotton_twill I am still intrigued by the great fit but not sure I would order again without a fabric sample
I have a nice pair of RL made by crocket and jones wingtips that I want to resole with dainite sole.  Would you trust the local cobber to take this on? 
Does Luxire have any recommended flannels or better even tweeds that are relatively light weight? I love the look of fall/winter pants but it is temperate where I live and with indoor heating I just don't need more very warm pants. Is it faux tweed?
yes, the price is just so good!  Alden boots I am looking at are like $580 USD I do think now they would fit as the shape on the upper would be a little different allowing for normal socks to be comfortable.  In terms of the shape I am just not sure so might have to pass.  It seems like a dress boot shape with very casual elements. 
Thanks.  I am trying to envision this as MTO means no returns of course.  The toe box fits fine bt snug on the sies but the shape and looks of the closed lace shoes seems a bit dainty in a way to envision casual boots.  They actually fit me almost perfectly as dress shoes.  I don't think sizing up makes sense as I have enough room to the front of the shoe.  I've tried on the closed lace shoes with normal socks and honestly it is not possible to tell how this translates to...
Does anyone have experience with casual boots in the Hiro last?   These boots looks great but I am worried about the last which seems to narrow for the style   https://meermin.es/grupoMTO.php?idGrupo=201   When I look at my closed lace shoes on the Hiro last although they fit it is hard to imagine this on a rugged boot.  Would the shape be somewhat different in a boot?
I though you were replying to my question. I'm not advising you get a 9.5 although that may well be your size actually
9.5 in the Hiro last but keep in mind I already wear closed lace shoes in this size that fit but am looking at more casual boots now
I'm looking at a pair of the group MTO boots in the Hiro last. I have closed lace shoes in the same last that fit well but I wear with dress socks. With thicker socks they feel odd but I'm not sure if it's the size or just the lacing. Would the fit be somewhat different in boots? I'm not sure if I should size up.
