Looking good @mdubs! I love how you "leisure" about in Suede LHS trying to decide what to wear for the day. I envision you in a smoking jacket as well with a pipe. Professional man of leisure...

They are not as dark as recent cigar and look great but they feel tighter across the vamp than some of my other shoes. That might end up bothering me over time. Hmmm . . .

Fantastic! I love them. Are they Barrie?post #99005 of 12241612/22/14 at 3:15pmQuote:Originally Posted by HenryIIIQuote:
+1 @ReppTiePrepster! Need to see those more often!
Thanks gents! Somehow, I end up reaching for my 975s most often. I guess the antique edge and welt make them more casual. I think I prefer the black edge as it's more versatile.post #99006 of 12241612/22/14 at 3:16pmFinally a true Whiskey Brogue!
Kinda suprised @LeatherSOUL didn't come up with these, but they're smarter than that!post #99007 of 12241612/22/14 at 3:19pmpost #99008 of 12241612/22/14 at 3:20pmpost #99009 of 12241612/22/14 at 3:23pmpost #99010 of 12241612/22/14 at 3:34pmpost #99011 of 12241612/22/14 at 3:40pm
Yeah, they are. I know someone mentioned a few pages back that shell fits a bit tighter than other makes. I guess I have a high instep and voluminous foot which makes it feel a bit tight. That would explain why I've always been a fan of suede and CXL over most other materials.
I'll most likely end up listing these up FS tomorrow. If anyone wants new Cigar chukkas in 8.5 D Barrie, you can PM me prior to that. I'm only trying to get my money back - which is basically what it would cost to get them new from Alden DC/SF or whatever minus the wait.post #99012 of 12241612/22/14 at 3:54pmpost #99013 of 12241612/22/14 at 4:07pmAnyone own?
Does the CXL Alpine grain differ from the Alpine grain used on the Leffot and LS models?

My chukka's were a little tight initially. I think they run tighter than shoes. That is one fine shoe you have there. Hope they work out for you.
