Also curious about the cigar LWB!

Size 10 D on the Leydon last seems to fit me best. Would a 10 1/2 C on the grant last be a comparable translation?

 

thank you!

Probably 9.5D or maybe 10E would work better. Leydon is a relatively narrow last.

Hey All,

 

Not exactly the Marcoliani socks, but its a great price:

Maybe we can get more Argyles and Shell this way... :-)

 

Thanks,

Mike

Thank you!

Now on to the hunt for full eyelet, commando sole cordovan Indys!

Completely normal from what I've seen. For some reason they can't/don't get the stitching as far inboard on the composite soles as they do on leather, and it doesn't tend to be a consistent distance from the edge.

Extremely impressive group. Are the Dalton's commando? I've got the same boot and had the commando topy put on and I love the look.

I think you are going to find slim pickins with full eyelets as a criteria.

That's pretty much what I decided. I didn't think it was worth worrying over, but I thought I'd check to make sure someone didn't have some horror story involving a similar shoe. I'd hate to give them up for a repair/replacement so soon anyways... especially since they're starting to break in nicely.

I'm lucky I can recognize Barrie and I doubt that I'll ever be able to match a non-Barrie shoe to a last on-sight. Thanks for the info. About a month ago I was pretty close to pulling the trigger on some new shell AE monks on eBay. They had the shape of a Barrie-lasted shoe and looked really great. I still kick myself that I didn't grab them. The more I look at AE shells the more I like them and right now I'm way too unbalanced with Alden's. I would not mind picking up some AE monks. The search continues........

Do these promotions also apply to cordovan shoes?

Also, does anyone have experience with setting up one of these accounts with their company or employer? Is this an easy process?
