Epaulet #8 Brixton....there was some discussion about antique vs dark edging on #8 - I like both, but I really prefer the antique for this particular model.

I picked up 4 pair on a special not too long ago --- 4 pairs for the price of three.

Thanks, I saw those and was wondering about them.  Is that what you use in your boots?  That's what I'm looking for, a good tree for some boots that I have.  If you have both and don't mind comparing the instep, that would be splendid!

Tasty. Is Leather Soul the only retailer that's offered a whiskey Indy with machine stitching?

Would a 8.5 trubalance be comparable to a 9 in Barrie? According to the size chart, the trubalance is a slightly wider last. So in terms of width, how comparable are those two sizes?

an 8.5 trubalance would be comparable to an 8.5 barrie.

Thanks for the pictures. Why is that makeup more comfortable than the standard CXL offerings?

 

The Kudu is more heavily oiled.  I find it to be softer and more supple than standard CXL.

ugh. if it WEREN'T on the modified i'd be in.

If I could have only one last, it would probably be the Plaza. It is easily my favorite last for shell boots. nod[1].gif

Hello,

 

I just purchased my first pair of Aldens (http://www.unionmadegoods.com/Alden_Coleman_Chukka_in_Cognac_Soft_Calf_14674_7982.html) along with the cedar shoe trees.

 

How does one care for Aldens to preserve their look and make sure their quality lasts?  I'm not very familiar with shoe care.  This is my first pair of shoes that I plan on caring for regularly.  What type of paste and brush do I purchase for this pair of shoes and what is the process of applying the paste and brush to care for them?

 

I appreciate the help!

THanks
