It says they're in E width, but I'm not sure how Germany measures their widths, it might actually be D? (Since there are also EE available, wouldn't make sense to me to only have E and EE widths.)

Ack... Size 8D Barrie. Appreciate the info thou.

New soles after wearing through the single leather ones on this pair of Alden navy suede PTB. Have to say that while the look is a little "trendy", the comfort is off the charts for spring/summer.

Got mine from ShoeMart about three years ago.

Alden x Context Roy boots. Love this color and these pants. Might pick up the Snuff suede version with flex sole.

Not sure if I can replace the crepe sole with that Vibram harrier sole in black. Hmm.

Theres a pair of those on eBay right now in the Dark Earth basically charcoal color, I have been debating.

I dont wear black that often (if ever) so I was unsure, but they look off the charts comfortable.

characteristic pinky toe bump on CXL ... always wondered if a wider width would help

Taylor Stitch in SF. They're called the Vintner's Chore pants. This one is Pine, a nice army green. Made of 10 oz canvas that's been slightly waxed then washed once. Button fly. Prefer these to chinos. Need to grab a diff color.

Fabric weight and feel are outstanding.

Not sure if its a CXL thing. Seems like a Barrie thing (last shape). Also, this CXL is far thinner than the CXL that Viberg uses, hence why I wouldn't point at the leather before the last shape.

I may need to buff these and apply some Montana pitch blend.

Is it me, or do NST boots on Plaza have the center stitched portion elongated versus NST boots on Barrie/TruB?
I fell in love with the NST on plaza after the pics from Leather Soul, so I may replace my Indy Color 8 on TruB.
Would love a comparison shot with Barrie or another last.
I think Aberdeen nst shoes and boots have the best proportions. I like the spacing, shape, and stitching better.

1st place:
Aberdeen for shoes.
Plaza for boots (but I like Aberdeen for boots too). biggrin.gif

I placed a pre-order with Yenni for the medallion black shell boot in January. The original projected time of arrival was April. I sent an email to her a few days ago requesting a status report. Yenni replied back saying there was a black shell shortage and the boots probably would not be available for at least 60 days. This is the first time that I have ever heard of a black shell shortage. Not doubting Yenni at all, but wanted to pass along this info. baldy[1].gif

Joe at Alden DC mentioned "difficulties procuring black shell" during my visit last December.
