A couple of questions:
1) Should I get cordovan boots to go with a calf leather jacket? or would calf boots be better? or does it not matter? I am concerned because the shininess of the cordovan might not match so well with the jacket, is the shininess of cordovan as pronounced in real life?
2) I really would prefer to get the color 8 burgundy color, the color is great one of my favourites, but I don't think it will go as well with a black jacket? how does the burgundy look in real life? more close to brown or is it black in color? should I stick with burgundy or black?
3) Recommended places to pick up Alden boots? I know of leather soul, shoe mart (I don't think they ship Alden's to canada tho). Any other places. I was considering TBS as well but thier cordo boot comes in the trubalance last and that is way to chunky otherwise i would have used a 20% off coupon and bought a pair.
thanks

Just out of curiosity: for those who have/had AEs, how did the fit compared to Aldens? I wore my pebble grain boots today on the Barrie last in size 8. I tried on the Park Ave and Strand in 8.5, and lengthwise they fit well. But the shoes were kind of narrow. The sales rep told me the last on the Park Ave and Strand were 'normal' and not narrow by design.



Also: besides adding a thicker insole and wearing thicker socks, is there anything else I can do to help make my suede Aldens on a Modified last fit better? I get shuffling at the heel. They fit quite bigger than my Barrie and Trubalance lasted shoes. I suspect the thin material of suede may be the culprit to give the shoes more space inside.

sales rep told you wrong. AE #5 last is narrow

"5 Last (65)
This is the longest in length of all of our lasts; best for a long, narrow foot."

I wouldn't be surprised. He was probably a standard Nordstrom salesman, not a shoe guru. He said they were the most popular sellers and I should jump on them. I told them I would need the approval of my internet friends first, haha. JK on the latter part.

If you plan on getting a Cigar longwing in the future then you may wish to pass on the calf. Same with the J Crew.....if you plan on getting Whiskey or Ravello shell then you may wish to send them back. I do love the cark brown calf....I just need to wear them more. frown.gif
Also I have some questions. Does anyone have any opinions on Lady Calf:

VS Chromexcel:
232
Any pics of these with these with some miles:
232
I love the thought and think a red brick sole on a calf boot would look nice.
Also, Still loving these every time I see them:
233

Please tell me where those Chromexels are from? drool.gif

If you're referring to the first pair of boots in the CXL list, they are Leathersoul's Ultimate Jumper Boot that came out this past February. Great looking boot.
