Keep the pics coming

thanks man, youll love your pair. the style is surprisingly versatile and this particular model is perfect for chinos and denim.

Me too. I haven't worn my whiskey LWBs for at least 3 months.

How did you size for the Grant?

 

I went TTS, although I think a half-size down could have worked for me too.  My understanding is that the Grant is right smack in the middle of the Alden last spectrum.

as far as sizing goes, the indy shoe (trubalance last) fits identically to the boot version. so I recommend same taking sam size

Thx much appreciated, always curious in between boots and shoes on similar lasts.

Thanks, glad you liked it (I wish I could take some pics that were closer to your level).  I was planning to post something with a little more oomph in the near future but I had that one on my phone from the other day and I thought it would be useful for anyone interested.  All 3 have exceeded my expectations and have distinctly unique styles. *yes on the Jcrew version of the PCT

Dang, you always have the best slacks. Who makes those? The combo of the chamois and blue is insane. Great look.
