Also wear the hell out of them - wearing something once  a month is not going to get it done.

Totally agree... if the length is good, I almost guarantee the leather will stretch appropriately.  Slightly snug Chrmxl out of the box = perfect after a few wears.  I too wear 10D and my chrmxl longwings are both too loose now.  I have to wear thick socks to fill the space.

I just picked some of these up from Leffot. Interesting to see the older version has the white thread while the newer ones appear to have tan thread.

I'm selling my Citishoes versions which were replaced. See sig.

The pair in my pic are from Leffot 2013, which seems to be the last year with the white stitch. Bought this pair used after my 2014 pair ended up being too tight for my liking. The 2014 had the more tone on tone stitching. I do like the tone on tone more but the white stitch doesn't ruin it for me.
 
It could just be the same white stitch but overdyed with the same acrylic finish as the shell. Maybe that has just worn off in time on the 2013 pair I have now.

My fav pair of boots!

Color 8 or Cigar? Lovely.

 

Sock game is strong! 

 

How do you size Modified, since we are the same size...?

Thanks! These are actually a dark Brownvello, although they look like lighter cigar almost.

Re modified, I would personally size it same to Barrie. These are actually 8.5D's from before I realized I could do 8's, but they fit fine with some thicker socks (Chups from the Jcrew sale)!
