  Very nice! CXL loafers are perfect for traveling. 
ALMOST BRAND NEW! These were worn twice.  This is a special makeup by Carmina and was shipped here from Skoaktiebolaget in Sweden.    Olive Suede, lined, with natural colored Dainite soles.  This model is built on Carmina's Detroit last, which fits true to size.  The 7.5UK size is that same as a US 8.5D. Includes original box, red flannel shoe bags...trees not included.    Price includes shipping via USPS Priority. Please let me know if you have questions or would like...
Reltex being more durable than the standard leather?  I'm on pavement a lot and kind of hesitant about a crepe-style sole. Then again, it only took a year for my leather one to be completely shot so maybe it's unavoidable. 
  Just my preference, but I'd say the Barrie/Commando.  I get a better fit out of that last and it's got the NST+ commando, which makes it a true Tanker. 
So back on the leather sole topic, what do you guys think I should get my brown beefrolls re-soled with?   So far I really love the Vibram 232 on my Ranger Mocs, and it's got the edge in durability. Not too sure how I feel about the RLH soles in terms of support but would like your guys' input. 
You can purchase them from Benjos, or some vendors on Amazon.  The 54" length is what you're looking for. 
My guess is the Alden Police Boot...if you are going off retail value. 
 Those are fantastic. Who did the make up? I don't own any scotch or alpine grain yet, but I think my next pair will be something of the sort. And after wearing my Tankers a few times I wish all my Aldens had commando soles!
Good to know it's not just me. Even the Tempest and montello Minilug kinda suck. I suppose it does have something to do with the leather.
The wingtip boots look promising, I wonder if they are available to MTO yet? Maybe it's just the environment I've worn my loafers in, but the leather soles have worn fast than any other pair of shoes that I own.  I'm not sure if I'd want that standard sole, but this boot in caramel shell would be the shit.    I liked the last of the Blake wingtips, but the heel counter was really odd and they never quite fit.  A boot would definitely solve that.
