Pretty nice. I find theres a big difference in brown CXl from alden and the http://epauletnewyork.com/products/steinbeck-shortwing-boot-brown-chromexcel

Looks totally different, alden is more reddish and lighter, is it the same CXL (both say brown)?

It could be the lighting, as both are Horween brown CXL and in one of those pictures of those boots the red undertones really shine through.

I think the brown of my CXL Alden looks pretty similar to that. Always tough to tell from pics.

Nice Indys and natural LWB. Good choices!

Anyhow, the Brown PTB definitely looks sharp so that is definitely why I am tempted....

It's Leydon.

Keep in mind the natty CXL gets much darker fairly quickly. It's not the same brown as the Brown CXL of the PTB, but it does not stay that lighter/olive-ish hue for very long.

I have a pair from Epaulet as well, and they are def Leydon last. I know that others have done the same shoe on Barrie, but I'm so glad to have found them on Leydon.

yeah, i am definitely interested in the Leydon version... and why I was interested in the Epaulet makeup.  Mike @ Epaulet forwarded me this pic of the Natty CXL which I personally like....

Thank you so much sazon. Today I'd settle for a pair of Alden Ravello just about anything, it's that nice of a colour.

Epaulet brown CXL PTB

I wanted a nice, daily shoe....but more importantly I needed something to hold me over while I'm waiting for some Pre-orders to be filled!!

Mine arrived on Wednesday last week and I wore them over the weekend a few times and to work today. Extremely comfortable and they seem like they will be very versatile.


[/quote]Congratulations to you and tifosi both for scoring such nice daily burners. I've never seen them before, but I'm definitely impressed. Wear in the best of health gentlemen.

This has been my experience as well.

Anyone got fit pics of the CXL dover blucher?  I'm considering getting a pair, but the shots from straight down don't really show what the shoe looks like in service.
