Looks like Bureau is showing for a 32 in the homespun ghurka again. May have taken a return.
Has anyone purchased the felt hat in a large? I'm looking to get a measurement on it, The Bureau has sizing on their site but it conflicts with measurement from Haven. Any real world experience with this thing? Bit of a fat head but if Havens measurements are more in line with the real deal then a large may work.

That dude strikes me as sorta nuts. To the OP, why not consider a belt from LGC, they seem to be of top quality, pretty inexpensive and I believe he does a Natural Belt made of harness leather. Begs...........

I realize that they won't develop the patina that a brown pair would but I'm more concerned about a quality boot. I've been searching for something in this style for a while now and these are perfect. A tad pricey but what are you going to do?

Thanks for the advice...
How limited are these SExIH going to be? I want a pair of 21 oz as my next pair in a good cut. I won't wear them untill the sammie contest is up but I would like to have them on hand for when winter comes. Any news on the second collaboration?
I like lurking here, lots of good things to read. Hey Miz how do you find your Aldens fit size wise. I'm looking at boots with the Barrie last but I don't have any dress shoes to compare them with. They say they are a half size larger then most dress shoes but I only have sneakers. For reference I'm a 9.5 in nikes and vans. I'm ordering them through Alden of Carmel and there very helpful but he hasn't been able to give me advice when comparing to sneakers.
If I can find it I'll drink a 12 year old Dalmore. So far for a resonably priced single malt I have never enjoyed one more. If I can't find that then sometimes just go to a 10 year old Glenmorangie, but that may be nostalgia and price helping with that desicion. I am after all a student on a budget.....
