I know the grant last usually fits TTS or down a half size but has anyone needed to go up a half size?

Just stopped by NOS in Brooklyn. Alden's are 15% off this weekend. They have a few models in the Aberdeen last, an Indy boot, and snuff suede unlined chukka.
They do not stock sizes smaller that 9.

It's like trying to read about fake Viagra and how reali it is to Pfizer Viagra, you'll never get through the offers to find such an article. I did find this one though.

No, that wasn't the "one fact" you got wrong. Can you tell us more about the Chinese hackers and how it relates to Rolex S/N and fakes?
You said there's a big lawsuit.

Apparently you've never been to a Tourneau. Amongst watch enthusiats, there's an old joke.
Q: What's the difference between a used car salesman and a Tourneau salesman?
A: The used car salesman knows when he's telling a lie.

Your story about the Chinese fakes that could fool everyone with a shadowy organized crime syndicate behind them are the same stories that were going around in the 90s only the fakes were reputed to be from Italy and the crime syndicates were eastern european. The hacking of Rolex computer systems is a nice new touch though.

You've somehow taken a remark from some one (a friend of a friend perhaps?) that the Chinese are buying up dead horses and that's what's causing the cordovan shortage. That sounds entirely plausible.
You then go on to raise some FUD by coming to the conclusion that they're obviously going to start faking Horween cordovan complete with stamp to make fake Aldens and flood the market.

Turn your wayback machine to 2007/2008 if you want to read about the last Cordovan shortage.

That funny Rolex story you linked to is questionable that it happened as stated. The presentation watch backs are engraved with Daytona 24 Winner or something like that.

They have a shop in dumbo - on the corner of front st and Washington st. Looks like they're unavailable online.

That is pretty bad, though I can relate. I always like the cooler weather as it allows for more apparel options. I like boots so when spring hits and we all get excited about the warm weather to come, there's a not so small part of me that realizes that my shell dress boots or CXL casual boots will see less and less wear. However, we also start to see more skin and sun dresses so there is that. Then we can break out the suede chukkas and before you know it, the kids are getting ready for s hool to start and i am back in shell boots.

Wow...summer really flew by again this year smile.gif

Any idea what last this is? The seller doesnt know. Looks like grant or barrie. Im thinking most likely grant

if it were down to those 2, then definitely grant

Speaking of ebay, a pair of (used) #8 wingtip boots is listed with a starting bid at $885... uhoh.gif

Grant seems like the most probable captoe makeup in this case.
