804 indeed.

 

I am about to find out here in a moment, as they are due for their maiden voyage.

 

Deets on fit momentarily.

 

Thanks.

Happy Wednesday!  

I love my Aldens but man, I need to hang out over here more often. These are sweet.

Couldn't agree more. Would unnecessarily clutter an otherwise clean design.

@peppercorn78

 

The 804 last is a little bigger than the 946, not much, but enough to give me a better fit for sure.

 

I really need an H width in the 946.

 

These fit me perfectly in a UK 9.5 G.

All in all, fit is great!

PSA: C&J Whiskey Skye 2 8E $750 shipped on B&S (not my listing).  Half size too big for me unfortunately.

My size, but should not be dropping that much so soon after getting my Harlechs. @makewayhomer

The Grain Shell is from Horween. I did a Cognac Grain MTO from Ron Rider a few years back.

Your new Balmoral Boots are looking superb. I also like those slacks.

You may search Angelus acrylic finisher on ebay. Below is what i got.

is the "600" a good finish for the shell? do you find it too shiny or no? debating which one would be optimal


post #1919 of 3048
kopped the 600 and 605. ill use the satin for casual shell pair and 600 for dressier versions. now to figure out how to remove water spots from used pairs of carmina, vass, and trickers

I decided just a week ago I was done with boots but I jumped on these. I love my 2 other pairs of C&J boots and whiskey shell...well I couldn't resist. Hopefully these fit like my 2 other pairs which are both marked 9D US...I think they should. Different last though.
