I don't like Kiwi brushes but the Star brand brushes you can find for about $6.00 on eBay are pretty good. The Kiwi ones don't have very may bristles and seem a bit too small.

You can order that size from any Alden retailer. I'm really not sure why they're that expensive.

LocalMan, what color are those Indys?

yes, ordering the same shoe that is brand new and first quality is 30% less than the current bid. buyer beware!

those look like Brown CXL to me. I really like the lighting effect on that photo - really makes the color pop.

Yeah those are the Alden for J.Crew Inyd's so Brown CXL as Beatlegeuse said.

I get my large nice brushes from my local shoe repair and specialty shoe shop. They are $9 and nice horse hair brushes. Look around im sure there are some shops near you.

I've heard that if you rub wheatgrass on CXL, and brush with a horse hair brush for 17 1/2 minutes it shines brighter than Cordovan!!!?!??!

Or is that barrier lasted shoes? confused.gif

I wear a 10 E on the barrie last.  If I bought the BB PTB, could I go to an 11 D, or would that be too large??  Thanks...

Don't rely on what people tell you - buy it and return if it doesn't fit. BB has a good return policy.

Speaking from experience, Bb ptb fits slightly narrower, not a full size larger. I'll try to order 10.5 D

Perhaps you could ask mediahound and furo for advice with the M58 last.
