The black dye on the notion of the soles and on other places around the parameter of the sole is wearing already as well. Gotta say, I am a little emo about it. Will try to get some pictures up after but this cannot be normal is it?

Wear them a year or so then use some of this stuff:

Hi everyone. I've been eyeing the LongWing Bulcher (Barrie Last) for a long time. My only option is to order online, as there's no Alden retailer in Singapore. I wear UK10 F in Loake 026 Last comfortably (snug) Can anyone who owns both Loakes and Alden comment what size should I choose for the LongWing Barrie??

Im wanting a more rugged looking boot thats not an indy. I have a pair of them already and i am wanting a smooth toe. I've somewhat narrowed my choices down to the Winn Perry "little tanks" in tobacco reverse chamois, The context roy roughout, and jcrews snuff suede boot. Whats everybodies opinions on these 3. I like the idea of the roughout suede and being able to do damn near anything in them but what about the regular snuff suede. How does it take to rain? I like the lighter shade of brown on the snuffs as too the darker roughouts. Ohio gets dumped on a lot from March through May so these boots will see a lot of wet. I like the reverse goodyear welt of the Roys. What is everybody elses opinions on the 3? and is there any other options similar?

CTYGGG - beautiful boots

Man them look good but they aren't my style. I like a more rugged looking boot and the plaza toe is very rugged looking

they are nice, but i just get the appeal of a boot on the plaza last, maybe a dress boot, maybe.
