I use a Behmor to roast 1/2 to 1 lb at a time. I place it near the exhaust fan for my stove and run the fan during roasting and for a couple hours after. No smoke issues, but I can definitely smell the roasted coffee.
My problem with black is that it is an easy look to put together. Black outerwear, black pants and boots, maybe a grey top. Anyone can put a black look together. Much harder to coordinate browns, greens, blues, pops of color.
That said, I would love to see Epaulet come up with something like this black cardigan:
Actually, I am pretty close to my TruBalance size, but I didn't even mention Viberg's lasts. I can wear 9.5 in both 110 and 2030, but I would probably be happier with 10 in 2030.
So for me...
Alden Barrie = 10
Alden TruBalance = 9.5 (borderline tight, thin socks only) or 10 (room for thicker socks)
Viberg 110 = 9.5
Viberg 2030 = 9.5 (borderline tight, thin socks only) or 10 (room for thicker socks)
