OK - a reset of the new Tobacco LWB's from JCrew:

The first pair I picked up during the 30% off window had a large stain in the leather on the right toe.  I called JCrew and asked if I could use some Saphir to see if it was just some stain from the factory or something else, and they immediately sent a replacement instead.  They offered overnight, but I declined - I wasn't in THAT big a rush and it is only a couple days from Lynchburg to my house anyway.  Awesome service!


Shoes feel just amazing - 11.5D in Barrie is a terrific match for me.  Will wait to decide, but it might even be a better fit than the Trubalance.  Happy boy today...

Mike, would you mind sharing your brush/buff routine with us? Your boots look *gorgeous*

anyone go down 1 full size down on the modified last? 1 size down from true to size? so 12D in plaza, 11.5D barrie, 11 modified? or is 1 down from tts too ambitious? ive read some sizing advice that recommends sizing down atleast 1/2 from brannock

ive regrettably had to downgrade you to (ditz +), down from (unsure -) for the teetering you have displayed. i worry that youll die an old maid, without a pair of ravello nst boots, even, should you continue on this reckless path

Try your barrie size, 1 down will not work. I have 1/2 down and tts, I prefer the latter.

I wear my Barrie size on the Modified, so a 1/2 size down for me.
