And now for a question; I want to add a pair of blue shoes to the rotation, I have the basics, a black captoe, #8 Long Wings, #8 PTB (pictured above), Suede PTB, and a Suede Chucka.

I am a TTS E width. Alden DC has the Blue CXL Long Wing, but they only did D widths, so I could go up a half size and get by, but Leather Sole has the Blue Suede Short wing coming in my size. Do I get the Blue CXL in a slightly off size (that still mostly works) or the suede??

 

I would get the suede for sure.  CXL has stretched quite a bit in two previous Alden make-ups--so much so that I ended up selling them.  I would be very concerned with CXL if you are already starting a half size up from TTS.

I was able to snag a pair of the Brooks Brothers Black Fleece LWB in black cordovan on Friday.  What is your take on black LWB vs color 8 LWB?  Thinking may flip them + cash for the color 8s.

I'm currently waiting on a pair of saddle shoes from a Leffot pre-order and the more I see those chukkas, the more I want a pair. I could see myself wearing them with just about anything short of a suit.

Today I'm wearing my brown Alpine grain v-tips from Leather Soul. I've only had these a few weeks but they are quickly becoming my "go to" pair of shoes for the office. They also seem to elicit more compliments than any of my other shoes or boots.

Friday was gorgeous out and a bit busy, so I didn't get to posting my whiskey lwbs on their maiden voyage. I was so exuberant to have found them last week with the help of Voltaire from CitiShoes, so I kind of glossed over the carpet break-in thing. Anyway, here they are:

 

 

 

 

 

For today, decided to go Alpine WTs with orange

 

 

 

Have a good day, guys!

MP very nice Alpine grain v-tips from Leather Soul, been looking at them myself. I seem to have a thing for NSTs, your pics and those of McArthur are doing serious damage to my bank account.

Some good news from Kirby Allison's Hanger Project:  

 

"After a two-year absence from the U.S. market, we have finally obtained EPA approval to resume selling the much-popular Saphir Renovating Suede & Nubuck Sprays and Super Invulner Waterproofing Spray."

It's hard to see how wearing a pair of $500 boots can be considered slumming.

 

Great boots! CXL is so comfy...

The black fleece pair is on grant last which is way sleeker than barrie and at the price you paid it's well worth to keep IMO.

Great point, Rydenfan. With shell getting toward $800, Indys are arguably "cheap." thumbs-up.gif

 

Have a good one!
