That is definitely unfortunate.  How'd it happen?

Will do. Now just need to decide between the Barbour and the Belstaff. The Barbour looks more classic to me (not to mention that it happens to cost less), whereas the Belstaff looks a bit more fashion forward and at times urban. Sheesh. This is how I ended up with 7 pairs of lwbs...

I prefer Barbour to Belstaff personally

OT, but I've got both Barbour International and Belstaff Roadmaster. I find I wear the Roadmaster about 10:1 compared to the Barbour.

I know, I know...gotta try 'em on.

Thanks for any advice!

I have a low instep so I usually have a problem with that on most shoes...sometimes a shoe will fit really well, but the instep is too high and I end up finding that the quarters almost overlap if I tie the laces tight, especially on balmorals. I have the 1494 and 1493 (unlined snuff chukka), and I haven't had this problem with either of them. The instep fits like a glove, and the lacing looks better, with just enough spacing between the quarters when fully laced.

Having said that, I do have a relatively high arch (low instep, high arch...I know, I have the oddest feet ever), and the chukkas arch didn't really feel any different than any of my other shoes. The flex welt oiled sole is really great. I don't have any experience with the Leydon PTB so I can't compare to that at all.

This was waiting in my inbox this morning:

 

"Sorry for the slight delay but your Aldens have arrived.
Your Roys will ship today at 4pm Central Time"

 

I pre-ordered these first week of April.  But who's counting.  :bounce2:

hi guys, i'm getting alden #563 (aberdeen last) in dark burgundy colour but not really sure on which size to get.

on a brannock device, my feet measured 9,5EE

 

however, the vendor only carries D and E width. should i upsize to 10? if so, which width should i get? or will the 9,5E stretch in time?

i'm very eager for an answer, any helps are greatly appreciated :D

Thanks for all the well wishes on my shell trauma this morning Gents.

How it happened: I was going into Dunkin Donuts for my morning fix. There are 3 stairs up to the entrance. A very nice young lady was holding the door for me with a smile. Not wanting to make it seem like I was taking that door hold for granted, I trotted up the stairs. On the third stair I dragged my foot on the concrete. I knew without even looking down what just happened.

Oddly enough, it didn't bother me like other scrapes have. Maybe because I knew somehow I'd get it back into shape later...or maybe because I knew whenever I looked at that scrape in the future I'd remember that fine lady's nice smile.

A couple things lying around my desk here at work which I may try in the meantime:

1. Olive Oil (yes, I keep olive oil at my desk at all times)
2. Brown marker
3. piece of half-chewed trident I found under my keyboard
