I use it for my shirts, SC, etc. I opted for the Med Travel instead which is only an inch larger in each dimension, but increases the volume signifcantly. I may try out the sportsman again and use the next size smaller folder. Do they still make the 266 sportsman?

It appears you can still find the 266 for sale...

What size Eagle Creek folder do you have? I had never heard of them and just looked them up. Pretty damn slick!

Black calf PA if it's a conservative business environment.

Any of the others if not - your charcoal suit will be pretty versatile with all the options

Black calf is safest imo
post #113487 of 122416

Is there a difference in the perforations on the LWB between the calf and shell models?  Are they perhaps bigger on the shell models?  Is it something else?

Going on almost a year and I think I have brushed them and reno'd them once in 10 months.  Kind of want to see what they will look like with minimal care.

 

Please excuse the non hemmed chinos.

A fantastic example of the 975. The king! I am really considering getting one, now that I sold my Florsheim burgundy shell LWBs.

Congrats. Would love to see pictures, but Color #8 + antique edges = win.

Awesome boots, awesome idea, awesome photo. Now just put up some choice #menswear photos on the wall and it'll be on fleek.

I don't believe so. I have a snuff suede LWB and several shell LWBs and the perfs are the same. Not sure about calf or CXL, but from what I've seen, they look to be the same size.

Brenner, not sure which tobacco chamois you are referring to, but here is a photo of of my few years old and well used in Africa, Alden Indy boot 40513HC Tobacco Chamois, from The Shoe Mart. Next to the used boots are a pair of new ones. You can compare.





Let me know if you have any questions!

congrats! how do they fit? did you size down because you have a narrow foot or because barrie is just so big? does it feel extra narrow due to the nst style?
