Seriously this forum rocks smile.gif

Have you worn both line and unlined? Is there a big difference?

Gentleman,

If anyone is interested I have a pair of Context Tankers color 8 size 11D for sale at B&S.

My new #8 PTB, with an emphasis on the "plain." Sadly, being a EEE, I find I am quickly exhausting all of the shell options from Alden.

As I begin my Alden collection, there are a few pairs that are at the top of my list. I would love to own a pair of whiskey shell cordovan plain toe bluchers. Unfortunately, many of the shoes/boots that are at the top of my list are not currently being made. Any tips?

Here's what I suggest (what I did):

 

1. Get on as many waiting lists as possible

2. Buy non-exotic offerings from retailers to build a rapport 

3. Wait a long time

4. Get frustrated when you see the constant posts of exotics in this thread

5. Drink heavily due to said frustration

6. Get a pair of C&J MTO in whiskey to tide you over

7. Still don't be satisfied

8. Be jealous of mdubs, try to dislike him out of jealousy but realize he's a really nice guy

9. Drink more and wonder how there are new exotics posted here weekly

I'm considering a pair of BB unlined LHS as well.  I take a 8.5 D in Barrie.  Given that these are unlined, can anyone tell me if they fit differently than the lined LHS?  Will I need to go down a size or width?  Thanks!

Yes, I worn both. unlined is definitely more comfy and feel like a glove right out of the box.

I wear the same size for both and I think it works great.

975s today. I'm getting some nice lightening on the vamp of the left shoe:

Hello,

Today is Whiskey LWB.

 

 

post #5425 of 10669

Finally wore my JCrew PCTs today to work. Had been wearing these for a couple hours at a time on carpet at home for a few days to break them in.. After much thought, I just went with my regular barrie size on these.. They are a little snug with heavy socks now but I expect them to fit nicely once the foot bed settles and the leather breaks in.. 

 

 

One in direct sunlight..

Loafer sizing is difficult for some people (like me). If you had a BB to try on the Van last you'd have the best luck. Doesn't have to be shell.

The beauty of 2 that are almost identical is that you only have to admit to one. 

So true!  While not rarities, I have two pairs of 975s and two pairs of color 8 and one cigar SWB--my wife isn't astute enough on my shoes to realize there are more than she knows about!

Early morning whiskey PTB maintenance.
