Thanks for your thoughts RTP. How do you typically wear them or dress in general?

For everyone else's reference, here's the post I was referring to and a sample of RTP's collection pics from it:

I wear suits about once a week, but mainly wear dress shirts and ties with grey wool slacks or chinos with blazers.  Textbook dress seems to suggest I need some cap toe bals.  I may be headed in that direction, but not for a while as this last purchase is one more than I had planned to start this year.  Thanks for the interest and the promotion of my LW collection.

Should I be concerned with the creasing so close to the base of the lasing?  I feel like they fit well, but I've never seen any of my shells crease in this spot.

Where did you get these? Very, very cool. I agree with Uncle Mac. If they feel right don't worry about the creasing.

Great pickup. I have a pair as well, one of my favorites

Thanks MrDV.  @Burton - Just arrived today from Alden DC.  I think they have a pretty good number of them in stock.  thanks for the feedback!

Alden lovers, hint hint

Check out theshoemart website. They have everything listed this evening including all the seconds listings. Definitely a few gems for those with smaller and larger feet and odd sizes in general. I only wish the color #4 ptb with dover pattern was my size.....sigh! I can't find anything that works for me but i figured maybe someone can snag something cool.
Don't wait by morning the website will be back to normal.

I am going to place a call. Hey, I would not be concerned about the creasing, but -and I am not trying to rain on your parade because this is exactly how I felt over some whiskey long wings- the gap at the back in pic four looks like it might be a bit much. If they feel large they might be.

Would you guys consider any of this creasing excessive? I am more concerned about the areas not the eyelets than I am towards the heel as the leather actually feels thin there in comparison to the other foot.

Is there anything I can do to repair this scratch on my aldens (burgundy cordovan)? I cleaned it with Renovateur and it didn't help much.

Thanks Alcibiades. 

 

I think I owe either you or REguy a big thank you for sizing advice for the tremont last (size down .5 like the barrie).  I can't remember who urged me to do so, but it was one of you guys.  I know there are mixed reviews about this sizing, but TTS wouldn't even be close to working for me.  Much thanks to either or both of you! worship.gif

I like polish and a deer bone for those.
