Nice purchase! Hope they workout for you, suede is ultra comfortable.

Thanks! Unfortunately I'm in the 9s. Bummer.

I took the irregular plunge once again as I wanted to try a pair of suede boots in a size different than I usually wear (8.5d Barrie -> trying 8E Barrie). I've made 4 irregular purchases in the past and still have one pair (#8 Chukkas). All the others I sold off due to not liking fit and/or style (brown calf wingtip boot w/commando sole on Leydon, unlined tan suede chukka on Leydon and brown suede chukka w/crepe sole on Barrie).

We'll see how these go.....

I was hoping for a #8 chukka in my size on irregular list, but not there. I settled for a pair of snuff sued pennys on van last (size 8), look great. Only flaw is a spot of snarky suede on the very back...perfect place for it. Rest of shoe looks great and fit is on the money.

Do you find the tongue sliding off to the side to be uncomfortable?

its annoying more than anything else. What is uncomfortable is when the speedhooks snag the pant, especially the stitching. Oooff

I noticed that on the C&J for Polo Lidricks I just got, the tongue is stitched down on one side to prevent the sliding.

Boring, I know, but I just received an "irregular" pair of Aberdeen lasted full-strap loafers in Color 8 from Shoemart. I've been going through some sizing issues lately but it seems to have worked out with these.
The only flaw/blemish I can see is that someone tried them on and minimally creased them. They look and feel awesome!!!!icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

That seems to be the best solution. It would be nice if Alden took care of it, but I guess you could have someone put in a few stitches locally.

noice. I think most would be pleasantly surprised with the Aberdeen last. Initially, I thought it was a narrow last, reserved for only narrow feet, but I was impressed with how well they fit. Aberdeen is probably one of the more under appreciated Alden lasts

Hi, Can I ask about the cordovan?

There are a lot of cracks on this pair. I know these parts had some stress. But I want to wear my shoes a long time.
and I also know i do not have to wear cordovan in the rain.

Do not you have any suggestion about your cordovan with the cracking?

Those with suede/nubuck, how do you care for them?

I know the sand suedes I ordered will pick up dirt and grime sooner or later. I had a pair of Clarks Desert Boots in several colors and they got dirty sooner or later. I never bothered cleaning them because they were cheap enough to replace.

Namor- you have really got that sizing down a width thing down; your shoes boots/ always look incredibly long and sleek.

Also, WHERE IS MAC?! No pics in a while.
