Those look great Bakes. I created something similar myself from Rancourt

These are all very good choices. nod[1].gif In my judgment, an Alden fan having all of these in his closet is something to strive for.

It would be cool unlined in cigar with blind eyelets.  I'm usually not a fan of the crepe, but might prefer it in such an application.

 

 

I can't speak from experience, but I don't see why it would not stretch at least a little.  Are you thinking that maybe the canvas lining will prevent it from doing so?

 

Also, would your foot's impression on the cork bed alleviate the tightness?  Or has an impression already been made in the cork?

 

 

Yeah I wasn't sure if the canvas would prevent it from stretching in that area or what. As for the cork bed, I'm not quite sure. It's a used boot, but supposedly used only once for hiking then never worn again .So it's scuffed up but new looking overall, if that makes sense.

 

The stress area is RIGHT where the tongue stitching meets the vamp. It feels tight without the lacing even being there. I'm just worried it will never stretch enough.

I'm a color 8 PTB away from this.

Funny...I just got my CXL Indys, and they've got the exact same issue. I suspect they'll stretch a bit, though...they're immensely comfortable otherwise.

It seems like about a year ago that I first saw the Barry crepe sole chukka in tan suede on the J Crew website.  Those sold out quickly.  Then a few months later they listed the same make up in Snuff suede.  When they got down to just a few sizes they disappeared from the website too, although I've seen an odd size pop up occasionally - like the 8 and 12.5.  I was able to find them in December at the Chelsea store in NYC after the guys at the Ludlow Shop checked the inventory for me. I've seem both J Crew models, Snuff and Tan, show up on eBay.

Actually the first model was in Camel suede, not Tan.

Very doable.  I am a cigar PTB short of this.  Not likely to complete this combination any time soon. eh.gif

Reconsider the crepe, it's a casual make-up & can always be resoled at a later time. Here's a few pics of my LS #8 Ranger on the crepe.
