thank you! that being said, I wouldn't be opposed to a straight cap on grant last and double leather sole to have something on the dressier side.

a great new make up from the bureau. I prefer the dover pattern but this pretty much of the best everyday shoes i've seen from Alden.

So I just got my Epaulet Natural Brixtons about a week ago, and I wore them out one day last week.  I'm thinking I want to get some sort of rubber sole protection for winter - is it too late now since I wore them out?  Is there a decent place in Chicago I can get this done?

No, you can still get a Topy put on. If you can't find a place in Chicago, B. Nelson will be able to do it.

If you want to have rubber soles like vibram Topys installed, it's actually better to have some wear on the sole as it allows the sole to adhere better.

 

Gus Shoe Repair on the North Side of Chicago does a good job with rubber soles.

L-R: Ravello, CXL, and J. Crew Crepe. The #8 Crews are definitely a serious Frankenshoe. I'm a little disappointed that the welt is dark rather than the antique brown they show on the website. However, seeing the price of those cigar Indys, I'm not complaining for a sub $500 pair of shells.

nephew,
wear in good health your gunboats

Brooks Shoe Service. They're at 29 E Madison. Head up the elevator to the sixth floor, take a left, and they're at the end of the hall. It'll be $35 for a Topy. They always quote a week or more for turnaround, and have always taken less (for me, at least).

If you are doing an exchange for size I don't think it will be an issue.
