There is talk on this thread of selvedge denim from time to time. I found this video entertaining on an otherwise mundane Monday.

Is there a general rule here?

Thanks!

Had this exact same conundrum--I've had to go TTS on the two barrie boots I have (the Naval and the Jcrew PCT). The Naval in 9.5D was especially tight for me. I've gone with a 10D, which fits well with dress and mid-weight socks and gives me ample toe room without being cavernous. Have not tried a 9.5E, though I expect the fit would be quite similar.

I know most folks here are into Shell, but I still have basically a brand new Epaulet x Alden Taunton Captoe Boot for sale in a 9D Barrie.  I definitely will be ordering a 9.5D as soon as I can for just slightly more wiggle room for the toes :)  With the commando sole, this is a killer winter boot!!!

Ravello NST on Aberdeen, AoC AF81 Cigar LWB on Barrie, Cigar NST on Barrie

 

A huge thank you to REguy for the NSTs. He was a pleasure to deal with.

 

 

In sunlight, the color of the Cigar LWB looks closer to the Ravello NST (which I'm assuming is new Ravello) than to the Cigar NST.

 

 

Those are absolutely stunning.

Thank you so much for the heads-up! The 20% worked on the color 8 cordovan boots! How often does one get a good deal on those?

Speaking of size 8.5, I just posted a pair of Alden x Need Supply Church Hill boot in 8.5D, new in box, if anybody missed out on those. I feel sick letting them go frown.gif

As for shell not liking dye and blistering, I can't speak to that in anything but an anecdotal way. My anecdotal thoughts are that most, if not all, she'll shoes are died and tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of died paor of shell shoes have been sold for decades and the market continues to seek out these shoes. It does not seem like blistering is a problem about which to be concerned.


Thanks Aldenwear.

UPDATE: As of earlier today I am told by Yenni that JGILBERT will be putting in an order request for this model: Black Shell NST boot, plaza last with commando sole. But It may take some time for Alden to confirm the order request.

The ones I've handled seemed to be of good quality.

Might just be the picture, but these look like Leffot's #8 LWB with antique edge to me. I'm not sure I've ever seen a Cigar LWB with a double oiled sole like the one in this picture, they are usually just standard double leather

+1. I believe they are Leffot's. I have these (not from TSM) and they are eerily close to cigar.
post #68894 of 122416
I agree with both of you - I wonder why ShoeMart lists it as cigar
post #68895 of 122416
Thier list also lists it as in stock.....but....we all know that may not be entirely accurate! Ha!
