some find that the Leydon is slightly narrower than TTS. I wear 12B Barrie but need to size up to 12.5C for Leydon. Best to try a pair on first if possible.

Yes it is. Although it is said to be one of the narrower lasts.

Oops, 10 minutes late.

I am a college student, who typically wears dark denim/chinos/button downs. Does it still work so well for my situation?

I always thought the reason why #8 is said to be so versitile is because it goes with both grey and blue, particulaly when talking about dress shoes and suits. 

 

I understand that it is said to go with almost anything, but I see where you are coming from.  For example, I personally could never wear it with red, orange or yellow.  Just doesn't look right to my eyes.

Thanks for your input. Btw, which boots are in your avatar?

post #35481 of 91677

"Thor" boot. It's an MTO, which is now closed. 

 

Google "MTO Boot Via Alden DC" and you should be able to find the thread.

No Aldens, but a good run of Rancourts and they just released their collabo with Allen Edmonds of the Neumora. (it's pretty sharp, but a grip over retail on the regular neumora you can buy at AE further down Newburry st.) If you need any other boston-centric recs I'm happy to oblige.
btw, the shoemart is sweet, but the retail space is nothing to write home about and I wouldn't recommend driving all the way from boston unless you're on your way to NYC.

Actually, it is the Mora, not the Neumora.  AE no longer produces the Mora, and it is on a different last, so I think this is just a large "custom" order (hence the premium).

Hahaha I read your quote of what I said and I went back because I was sure I typed "nice shoes", but I didn't.

 

Yup, their almost black after 22 years of no shoes. tongue.gif

Guys I have a question. I am getting my first pair of nice boots. I want something that is versatile (can be worn with denim, chino's, slacks). I was thinking about these for my first purchase. Would this be a good first pair or would you guys recommend something else? Also is this color pretty easy to wear? I wear mostly stuff from epaulet.

A very good selection.

Any idea how I should size them? I am a true size 12 US.
