Do you find that the nst creases more and/or worse than other models?
Hard to say, lwb and sw do hide the rolls better. Nst and ptb show all the roll glory.

The three non-shell Leffot preorders went live. Their tan calskin atoms and black alpine grain longwings are both very good models. I've almost purchased the black grain longwing several times...

Sizing question (I apologize in advance if this has been addressed before, but I wasn't able tot find the answer searching the thread)- how do the Brooks Brothers single letter width sizes convert to the typical X/X sizing that Alden typically uses? I stole a pair of shopworn pct balmorals off ebay last night and they were listed as C width, does this equate to C/E?

Doesn't the, for instance, B/D in a standard width shoe mean it is a combination last? B heel and D forefoot. So a C width would be A/C? Or B/C? Am I just totally off base?

Yup. I decided that since the conditions have to be perfect to see the spots; I'd hold on to them.

That C width designation is most certainly for the ball of the foot and not the heel.

I think this can probably be minimized with some product.

Eh. Doesn't bother me enough.

For those that have Alden for BB shoes, are the exposed eyelets brass colored or painted? The black shoe shows them looking black, however would be interested in a Burgundy pair possibly.

For what it's worth, many of my #8 shoes have blotches like that too when viewed under strong sunlight.

Eyelets are painted same color as the shell.   Color 8 shell (burgundy, as you call it) eyelets are same color.  Good luck finding a pair, as only limited sizes were available last I checked.

Yep, if they're listed as C width that means they are likely A/C width as stated in Alden's standard sizing terms.
