I have a Whiskey Longwing and the Ravello Wingtip boot - what's the best cream or polish to use out there for them and should I be using two different brushes for them? Plus, what's the difference between the black horsehair brush and white horsehair brush? Help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Sorry meant to say 8.5D Leydon last not 8.6D
Just wondering about any Alden Lonwing owners out there. I have the Longwing in the Barrie last in a size 8D and just wondering how they fit you guys exactly. If you put your foot in and push your toes in unlaced, are you guys able to stick 1 finger or pinky finger in the heel? I'm just wondering if I should size down a half size, which means I would be sizing 1 full size down from my 8.6D Leydon last shoe? I'm also wondering if it's because the dress socks I wear are...

If I have a Leydon Last boot in a size 8.5D, what tree shoe size should I be getting? Also, is there a certain code inside the shoe/boot to tell which last it's on? Anyone? Appreciate the help.
Also, my waist for pants is usually 30-32" to give another point of view about my size.
Sorry, those were the only measurements I took. Mister Mort is about the same height as me and he's wearing a Medium in his blog so you can see a better reference pic. I'm 5'8" and about 155-160lbs with broad shoulders. I don't mind the slim look when wearing small size shirts but I'm not a small in this Trucker whatsoever especially if you're going to wear another long sleeve shirt or sweater underneath. If really want this slim than go with the small and stand like a...
