What is the general opinion regarding shoe cream/polish for alden #8 - coloured polish or neutral?
Hi, Is the barrie last significantly wider than the plaza last? Opinions appreciated.

Hi, I wanted to ask if the AE Dundee chukka is similar in shape to Tricker's 'Winston' chukka?
I got a chance to try the modified last yesterday and I was very surprised by the 'instant' comfort level! The boots felt comfortable immediately and the leather soles were flexible - unlike many shoe brands where the shoes have to be broken in. I wear orthotics and these seemed perfect. The shape does not lend well to a smart dress shoe, but for casual wear, they are perfect.
Thank you for the advice.
Is the modified last going to be very wide for someone who has narrow feet? I wear orthotics, and was wondering if my legs will be swimming in the modified last? Opinions appreciated.
Hi, I usually wear UK 8 or 8.5 in Crockett & Jones. I was thinking of ordering a pair of boots on the F last and wanted to inquire what sizing would be best. I contacted Vass and they sent the insole measurements below. All my footwear measures 28cm internally. F Last: UK 6.5 28.1 cm UK 7 28.5cm UK7,5 28,8 cm UK8 29,2 cm UK8.5 29,4cm I was leaning towards UK 6.5, but was wondering if dropping 2.5 sizes is wise!!

I am interested in the 256 (original suitcase). I see that FIlson have now started making it in tin cloth. I wanted to inquire if the tin cloth is more rugged 'tougher' than the 22oz twill used originally?
