I wore color 8 Commando Tankers yesterday with a grey BB Madison 1818 suit and the combo looked great.

Thank you all!

It was funny as I wore my LHSes in the afternoon yesterday and was in a small meeting and someone asked me if they were brand new. Then, one of my co-workers said no, he just takes good care of his shoes. I thought it was funny that I have my co-workers trained. :-) The funny part is the person who asked me was with me in DC at Alden when I bought them 6 months ago.

Ravello Saturday. That's a thing, right?

I am anxious. Supposed to get my Color 8 full straps today. Not sure. The FedEx site is showing me some funny stuff.

I am really curious to see how they look. I have wanted a pair of full straps for a while. Though I was mainly hoping for Cigar, but it's hard to beat Seconds deals.

Please someone 8.5D Barrie buy these, so I don't have to.

Does anyone know why my cxl would be "buckling" in the arch area? I have 2 other pairs of Indys (suede and 401 black calf) in the same exact size, and don't have this issue with those boots.

 

Is it size related, poor cutting/stitching in the factory, a bad piece of cxl, or maybe just the nature of cxl?

 

I wore them out all day, and this started to develop after a few hours, and wondering if I should send back to Unionmade?

 

 

Thanks!

Most would get 10 and that is where I would start.. A seeming minority get their barrie size in grant - grant is Iin the middle of the alden last spectrum but towards the generous side oft middle (and barrie is the widest alden last except for trubalance and modfied.).

Thanks..
