Haven't considered suede previously, but these might change my mind!  Great pickup and sounds like you got an amazing deal!

I don't understand the part of the Mac Method where you wear the shoes on carpet so that you can return them if they don't fit properly.  Is there a way to wear them for several hours without creasing the vamps, or are you just selling them on ebay if they don't fit?

I'm actually a easy fit and know pretty well right off the bat if a shoe is going to fit. This is good since I get through day 1 of Mac method and I break down like a child with a new toy and off I go. Now I also believe it helps the toe by the sole breaking in a bit before you gouge the toe due to stiff sole.

Very nice choice on those natural CXL LWB's El Argentino, looking forward to see how they age! I really do need to pick up a pair of those myself.

Are they MTO or where did you pick them up?

They are from Leather Soul. A make up they did in the summer I believe.
I believe they have a few sizes left. I just exchanged these for a pair of 10.5 D.

These arrived in the post from Massachusetts today.  Doing the carpet break in thing.

 

Lighting is very bad, I know.

Also, those suede JCrew bucks up top are incredible. A suede pickup is definitely next for me.

Alden x Epaulet Natural CXL Longwing (97871), Leydon.

Currently starting wear #1 of Mac break in method. Oh, how I hope these babies fit. Love the color and various subtleties across the shoe - exactly what I was looking for in a casual LWB.

Thanks to Uncle Mac, herrmj, NYI, wj4, PhiPsi, alcibiades, & beatlegeuse for your consultations over the last month or so. Really appreciate the input.

my new cxl indy boots with brass eyelets/commando soles from Epaulet....

I was always on the fence about picking up a pair of the ubiquitous 403s, whether the stock model or the slightly modified J. crew version, so I'm glad i held out for these bad boys.

I can't tell if the brass makes these more casual or dressier than the stock 403, but either way i like them a lot.

Great snag. Just saw those go up. Reminds me of the Officer Indy from two years ago aesthetic-wise. That similar dressy standard. Love it, looking good. Enjoy!

Are these Color 8 LWBs?  Black shell?  In either case, well done and congrats on your gunboats! I love the smell of brand-spankin' new shell, fresh out of the box; nothing like it!!
