APCs aren't shrink-to-fit. "Best fit" is subjective.

Some responses from the Alden thread; nothing definite aside from relacing, and I've already tried that. Now am trying a tongue pad.

Interesting! Did you solve the problem? If so, how?

Which ones tend to give the best fit?

Most people choose the New Standard. Get the Rescues if you have larger thighs and/or butt or if you want a looser fit. The New Cure is for the guy who wants a skinny fit. For you I'd suggest the New Standard in size 28.

I think he means "shrunken fit", not shrink-to-fit.

I don't know if I understand how the sizing thing works. When you say 28, is the waist and the inseam 28? If 28 is the waist, how would I know the inseam size?

Sorry for the noob questions!

There's no choice of inseam, it's either 34" or 36" depending on waist size. I think you need to do some more research. Try search, or read this: http://www.superfuture.com/supertalk...ad.php?t=45979

Size 28 waist. There is not a choice for the inseam. You will have to take them to a tailor to get them hemmed.

Hello all,

I bought some common projects recently and they squeak pretty good when wearing right now. I think it is from the tongue shearing on the sides.

Anybody know a good way to relieve this squeak. keep in mind that they are white so a good deal of leather polishes are not an option.

Thanks

I have a pair of 403s -- Chromexcel Indy Boots -- and am having a bizarre problem with the tongue on the left boot.

The problem is this: about 60 seconds after walking around in the boot, the tongue falls to the left down into the small space between the left side of my foot and the side of the boot. I can pull the tongue back up, but it will fall back down after another 1 to 3 minutes of walking. Sometimes if I've been sitting for a while it will slip down on its own.

The right shoe doesn't have this problem at all, and bizarrely enough the tongue on the right shoe looks very, very well worn in unlike the one on the left (these boots are about a month old), which has some but not a lot of signs of wear. I'm hoping that this is something that goes away with age, but the issue here is that this slippage problem is preventing the tongue from breaking in in a way that might prevent this in the future. (Also, thickness of socks does not affect this problem; the burliest of wool socks or the thinnest of dress socks don't affect this one way or another.)

So... any ideas? I had thought about putting a tongue pad on the bottom of the tongue facing my foot, but am looking for something less invasive/less permanent. Is there some kind of Chromexcel-friendly adhesive I could use that would be removable and wouldn't damage the leather? It'd have to stick to some fairly oily leather...

Thanks in advance, everyone!

OK, relacing didn't work, the tongue pad didn't work; the thing falls down after maybe 30 seconds of walking. It's time to take it to a cobbler. Will most cobblers suggest tacking the tongue? Is there a way one can do this without ruining the shoe or permanently altering it? Ideally I'd like to be able to undo whatever work they do by the time the shoe is broken in.

How do I change the leather strap on my wristwatch with a Nato strap (without involving a jeweler).

Tricker's and Doc Martens have monkey boots. Not my style, but I would start with them.
