As far as I know Alden doesn't make a neutral paste wax. But perhaps your comment was more general and not restricted to Alden paste waxes ....

Sorry, you are correct.  Neutral is only in the cream, not wax.

I think that it's got to do with the welting ... Barrie-lasted shoes look unbalanced without the storm welt.

I personally disagree that they look unbalanced.

 

I'm with SFTG on this one.  I probably won't buy Barrie or Trubalance lasted shoes/boots anymore if they have a full 360 storm welt.  The heels are already wide on these lasts and the 360 welt just makes the back end way too wide IMO.  I have been enjoying my Barrie lasts with a flat welt and close heel.  Makes the "bulbous" (sp?) Barrie look much sleeker.  It took me awhile to consciously acknowledge what my preferences were in this area.

the 360° storm welt seems to suit the LWB and PTB quite well though.

I like monks but I just prefer a larger buckle.

nephew,
thank you
the two eyelet chukkas do not work for me.
six eyelets do work for me


Uncle, just curious, does the AE three eyelet chukka (Dundee), work for you?  AE has had some nice looking shell offerings in the Dundee but I have never tried them..

whats the consensus with sizing if 11.5D? would 11E possibly work in a barrie lasted shoe?

+1, I don't think its the lack of a storm welt that makes the cadet look awkward.  I think this particular perf CTB seems like it should be a boot (looks too fat and bloated).  Maybe the aberdeen last would be more suitable.
