Now I'm trying to decide between the cordovan cap-toe boot TTS, or the Indy (Trubalance) in 0.5 size down.

I just wish they had the LWB in shell in my size (0.5 down). I'd be satisfied if they had it on back order.

Nothing beats trying shoes and boots on and since you are in the LA area, nothing beats a trip to LS to get accurately sized

J Crew's suede chukkas are on the barrie, but the unlined suede on barrie tend to run narrow.  I believe all of Alden for J Crew are on the barrie last

In any event, nice shoes.

Do any of you guys have multiple pairs of the identical shoe? Whenever I see a crazy good deal for a new pair on eBay, I snatch it up. I now have 4 pairs of the J. Crew antique tan LWBs. I justified having 2 by keeping them at different locations as I travel for work. With 4, this will be my go-to shoe until I die. I'm beginning to think I have some kind of compulsive, hoarder psychosis. That, or I'm just a sucker for a good sale.

^ I forgot about Mafoo and his "1-shoe" wardrobe. Although, I think sanity will kick in before I reach 7 pairs like him.

And I thought I was bad because I have a number of Aldens in different colors: LHS, NST, PTB, longwings, captoes and chukkas in various cordovan colors and Indy boots in various leathers. But multiple copies of the same shoe?

My doctor wears nothing but black PTBs. They look to be calf PTBs and are probably Allen Edmonds. He is getting a bit wild, however: he recently showed up in PTBs made of pebble grain black calf.

Many moons ago I knew an academic in NYC who was a German descent and he had seven white shirts, seven black pants, seven black jackets, black socks, wifebeater t's and seven pair of black PTBs. All were of the finest quality I was assured. The shoes may well have been Aldens. The shoes all had trees, looked pristine and always shined. He said he never wanted to spend a moment thinking about what to wear.

Any place I am missing for NOT Color 8 or black Wingtip Boots? About to pull the trigger and trying to decide between Shoemart (pebble grain), J.Gilbert (cognac brown) or Epaulet (nat. cxl)? I need size 8 Barrie (nothing out there used/secondary?). Any others out there available shell or not. Any thoughts on those three choices? Thanks...JT

I'd be worried about only being 3 pairs away from 'foo.

What makes CXL a casual leather? I've seen some pics where it shines nicely, and has a nice patina, so why is it not considered as dressy as shell and just below calf
