:wow:  Wow!!  Those are some good looking boots!  I'm glad I already have my cordovan cap toes (and that these don't appear to be in size 8 at the moment).  I had seriously considered the C&J Islay before making my decision, but the US availability of these would put them over the top, for me.

I'm experiencing some wear on the lining of a pair of my LWBs. I treat them right...cedar shoe trees, rest them at least a day between wears, etc. The last and size fit me perfectly, so there's no heel slippage. I'm growing concerned as I see the same thing developing inside some of my other more worn Aldens. Does anyone have any tips for how to prevent this from happening? Would a good cobbler be able to fix it or is the lining done once it goes?

Not sure there's a way to prevent that - looks like the natural way your foot moves inside that particular shoe. I wore my unlined 8 dovers sockless a couple of times recently and got a "hotspot" on the side of my heel area -- very similar to were this appears to be on your shoe (never noticed it with socks). Took them off before a blister actually formed. I'll probably get wear marks like this on my Barrie last shoes too.

Any Barrie size 10Ds out there in need of some suede?

The Bureau Belfast has this https://www.thebureaubelfast.com/shop/1771/tan-suede-long-wing-blucher

on sale for £288.00 (Non-E.U. Price, which I believe comes out to less than US$320)

They also have the 8/antique edge LWB in several sizes (9.5 & 10D; 8, 9, 9.5 & 11E) https://www.thebureaubelfast.com/shop/4011/color-8-cordovan-long-wing-blucher

In the Whiskey LWB.

Looking good in your LWB. LWBs are always a good choice.

I guess I got lucky with the US availability for the Islay. ;-)
