Wow, those are nice!  Someday when I get my hands on some 9750s, I think I'll brass them.

Here it is...

My take was Plaza as well.

Were Madison and SF's CXL, or calf? Not much desire for a calf, but CXL I could get behind.

Yes, you're correct and they were a 2012 run by Leather Soul and I got lucky and found this pair on eBay & had to get them!  Thanks everyone for the compliments!  I am happy to have them & just need a cigar Alden shoe or boot to complete the rainbow :)

Hey Repptie, Alden NY was running a SWB in ravello last year. Were you able to get on the list?

Info on the jeans in the pic please? in the pic, they look light a raw pair of rigid tan jeans. I'm looking to venture out of the typical raw blue jeans.

Which would you say is more snug for you, the UK8 Rain or 8.5US Barrie?

These happen to be selvedge wheat denim from the Gap, as I wasn't able to find something readily available elsewhere.

That being said, I have had a reasonable amount of luck with Gustin. They run a lot of unique colors. I have a red/oxblood pair from there. https://www.weargustin.com/store/848

I also have an eggshell colored pair from Epaulet.

I know a few others, but this is a decent start.

For the record, I am not a real huge denim snob, but I have everything from Gap to The Flat Head.

bit of a toss up because my rain lasted shoe is a suede single, so there is a bit of stretch. I would say the barrie is a slight bit more snug to start off with, but will stretch and fit like a glove, at least for my foot shape.

Rain is definitely snugger for me. My feet are relatively wide.

This link reminds me of how horrible TSM makes Alden's tan/dark tan calf look. I have a few pairs and IRL they look 100 times better.

Maiden Voyage.

 

Now I need to grab a tan suede belt, natural CXL is as close as I have at the moment.
