I wear 7.5D Barrie, 7.5E Aberdeen and Vass, 8D on the Brannock (actually, between D and E). I've purchased two Heschungs: the Tyroleans co-labelled with Yuketen; and some Ateliers Heschung suede Algonquin's with white work soles. The Tyroleans fit exactly like barries (size down 1/2 from your Brannock). The Ateliers Heschung Alonguqin's were really long and a little narrow--even sized down 1/2 they were still 1/2 size too long. So quite a different fit from the...
BTW, the new Nettleton site seems pretty dubious. I'm not sure what 3 generations of Tuscan stonemasons bring to traditional footwear manufacture. And while all the old photos are great, would love to see what they're making now. I've seen some pretty mediocre stuff from when they were making stuff overseas over the last few decades. Let's hope they actually bring back some of that old-time Nettleton quality and style.
They weren't faked. Seller claimed they were Nettletons, insoles were not readable on his photos. Turned out to be vintage but low-grade wingtips (British Walkers)
many thanks. the plaid one will fit, the blue one is a little big. let me measure someother shirts to see if I can take them both. stephen
Brooks Brothers will tell you that you can't on cotton, and having tried it, I'd tell you that in addition to the mark it leaves, there's damn little fabric in there to let out.
As a long time FP user, I wouldn't recommend either of those for FP ink. I believe those are solutions for ball point ink. Roller ball ink will react more like FP ink than ball point. For FP ink stains, Amodex is a professional ink removing liquid sold by many pen shops. Ammonium will dissolve many inks but you should daub a diluted solution on with a q-tip, testing other parts of your shirt for color fastness. Rinse thoroughly afterward. Some really old stains can...
Don't know if anyone else has firsthand experience with this, but I spent a few weeks two and a half years ago in NW PA with a buddy who owned a bunch (more than 50) of new wells and was fracking hard (more for oil than NG, which was so cheap they didn't care much about it). Greenhouse gas? We drove by a giant well fire that sent a natural gas flame shooting hundreds of feet in the air. You could see it for miles around, looked like Northern lights! The area where my...
Read Malcolm Gladwell on the wisdom and stupidity of crowds, and how we are pre-programmed to thin-slice judgements that are not always correct, especially with charismatic individuals. To be fair, thought, he did get us through the Cuban missile crisis--the closest we've come to nuclear annihilation yet. Also, he arguably bit the hand that elected him by letting his brother go after the Mafia and eventually, he did the right thing on the Civil Rights movement. Both...

Listed as sold out on the website. I have the brown ones and beware, in person they are much redder--more typical chromexcel. Not quite 80's Timberland lug boots but not as rich/deep as the pictures. You can darken them up with Obenauf's...
