Yes, sir they are lined and for sure the unlined brown version would show more creasing. The AE boots are also made of CXL, again lined though.

Yes they are 9D. Sorry to hear about your experience. I think they check stock manually and hence unreliable stock taking.

Unlined Dover from Leffot acquired from another SF member. I'm a big fan of the waterlock sole. These are super comfy.

I almost bought the ones from AofC but decided on the JCrew’s with the leather soles.  Hard to find makeup though!

Very nice DonL... I've nearly pulled the trigger on the tan LWB several times in the past...  regretting not doing it.

No comparison my friend, snag yourself either one when the opportunity presents itself!

 

Gents, great minds think (and dress) alike!


Still working on the lawn there DV.  Not quite ready for the weed-n-feed just yet!

We need a time series of pics so that we may monitor patina development.

Can anyone who owns this pair comment?  I am definitely interested in this make-up and I'm ready to pull the trigger, but I also fear that they will look like this after a few months of frequent wear.

 

Thanks in advance...

 

 I only wear these about once a week, but I would be shocked (and sad) if the ended up looking like that....they have definitely wrinkled but nothing like the pair listed on ebay......shoe trees go in immediately after they are taken off......I would guess that may not be the case with the pair on ebay

Looking good!

These are have developed wrinkles as well, but they seem to be linear rather than sporadic which does not bother me in the least.....same with the CXL tassels I have been wearing lately
