Looking sharp Uncle. Your posts have been an inspiration to me for a while, both the pictures and responses to others. It's great to see you back on this thread! Not only has my shoe wardrobe been enhanced with handful of Alden shoes and boots (and 2 more on the way) but the fine folks at customshirt1 delivered some beautiful argyle Marcoliani socks yesterday! Have a great weekend!

That being said, Gustin has size 40.
I am sure the levis will be awesome, regardless.
This is very true but they are not offering those awesome oxblood 2

They'll do an Oxblood3 sometime in the next year, I'd guess. Just sign up for their mailing list and keep an eye out for it. The order tends to fill quickly.

Figured that much but picked an option to notify me just in case oxblood 2 comes back. It is awesome place & price is not bad at all compare to department store prices. Thank you for info & letting us know about your awesome jeans biggrin.gif

I can't recommend @Equus Leather strongly enough. They are actively involved with the SF community, make a very high quality product and are a joy to deal with. I have a few belts from @Equus Leather and the burgundy is not an exact match to color 8 but still works well IMO. It's their bridle matte brass buckled "West End" at 1 3/8", a width I chose to work well with casual & business casual.

Also, do people typically size up for boots to accommodate "boot" socks?

Thanks!

Both are great boots. You are hard to go wrong there. The Perf Tip is probably a little more versatile than the wingtip.

Henry, these are aging quite well. Glad to see them getting good use!

A little something new from Yenni at B+M. This batch of CXL is so soft. Can't wait to see the patina on these in a few months.

Just want people's opinion if these look ok. Stitching on sole seems a little off, up by the side of the front it goes pretty close to, if not right up to the edge. And on the heel it looks to be a tiny bit chipped where the two parts meet.

Would you guys send these back, or is this not going to effect wear/quality at all? I'm totally fine keeping them if these are mainly cosmetic and won't effect the wear/quality/longevity of the boots

Thanks for your input, I appreciate it

Those look totally fine. Enjoy them - they're fantastic boots.

Ravello is so nice, especially your pair. Really nice patina and color on them.

I was looking at this makeup the other day. Very cool! Plus, Yenni is awesome.

So...I may have underestimated how difficult the Van last is to fit on my recent acquisition of LHS in 11D. I sized down in accordance with my Barrie and Tremont wore them out sock less after an initial try on period and had one of my worst fit experiences thus far -- the strap was unbearably tight!

Do most people share this difficulty? And is there a recommended recourse--or is there just a required break in period? As I consider selling the 11D, I'm wondering if it's worth trying 11E or if the BB unlined might be more comfortable? Or is it just that LHS are not for everyone?

Interested in thoughts/experiences...and PM me if you've nailed down your fit on 11D and are looking for a below market pickup.
