Seems to me Michael has a smashing shoe collection there, is he on his own in Lubbock?

 

Lubbock is sort of Texas's version of New Jersey - a place everyone not from there likes to joke and tease about.  For example the folk singer Nanci Griffith, who is from Austin, Texas, tells a story while introducing a song on her live album that starts:

 

"Most of my mother’s family came from way out in west Texas in a little town called Lockney, which is somewhere close to Lubbock, but not too close to Lubbock, nobody likes to be too close to Lubbock."

If I wear a 11.5 in Ralph Lauren Marlows would that be the same size in
Islay

Barney's online website has them in US sizes - that's where I got mine. The Skye were ordered direct from C&J through their Manhattan store location and they had to figure out the UK vs. US size difference.

 

I understand some folks order their C&J shoes/boots from UK sources, but I don't know if there is much money saved with that route or how much trouble it may be. Perhaps somebody else could chime in.

So I just bought the Ralph Lauren Linderick boot in cigar shell cordovan. Would lasted trees, on the 325, be a good investment? Or would my standard Woodlore trees from JAB do the trick? Also, I assume that the shell used for these boots is horween, but can someone confirm for me?

^Horween: confirmed.

Is cigar the standard shell color or is this something new/different?
