Kathy sent a pic of the DC cigar LWB. very dark but still nice

 

was going to grab and convert the sole edging, but then called up to AoM and confirmed I''m already paid up on a pair with them. hopefully they arrive with antique sole (and lighter shell lol)

When you say child, one of two examples comes to mind:

 

1.  Ugly little step child

 

2.  Beautiful love child

 

Please elaborate further.

 

I don't mind a bit of clunkiness by the way.  I am all too familiar with the blobbiness of Alden's and enjoy it quite well if the truth be told.:)

Rydenfan, as usual, speaks the truth. Sorry I couldn't chime in earlier. Self Edge does a great job of course. One thing to note is that having the jeans tailored instantaneously makes them final sale regardless of whether you end up having a problem (which I can't imagine you would because it's Ep), so measure twice, cut once. Moreover, there isn't much of a sizing guessing game with Ep denim. Look at the sizing charts on the website; things are pretty straightforward with that info plus the once-washed situation.

It's a weird last. It's a worse looking dress last than the Hamton, but a better casual last than the Barrie. I wouldn't mind a 990 or a 975 on it, but I'd never buy the stock shell balmoral. It's definitely a fat last.

By "dark edge" trim, do you mean black like the 975 or the darker mahogany antique edge trim (rather than the light tan antique)?

A proxy buyer on SF used to do just that. Rare color shells were procured through the Horween rep in Asia. Shells were sent to Vass.

Not sure if the gentleman is still doing it nowadays.

All this color #4 talk has me thinking that I haven't worn my LS #4 4 x 4s in at least 2 years. foo.gif

How it fits, the look, and your overall feelings about it.

Thanks in advance.
If you're a fan of the Barrie last, then you will probably like the Tremont also. That's how I was sold on it from the salesman at citi shoes. Leffot recommends going with your Barrie size which I do. If you like the 974 then you can order them in whiskey next time Kathy does them.
