After the 975 talk, lining up a long mdubs inspired side shot. They may be gunboats, but the heel alone could serve as a weapon.

Curious, do you find one more comfortable than the other? Aside from going sockless in suede, that is. And this could be a question for anyone with the CXL version: Have you experienced much stretch? I have a pair of Oak Street CXL shoes that stretched a shit ton.

they both are very comfortable.....my suedes are 11.5s and my CXLs are 11s but surprisingly the suedes are a more snug fit.....I wear them with a think insole though as I do wear them without socks quite a bit when it is warmer.

Thanks. And funny, we seem to be the same size, or close to it. Tried on both in the NYC Alden shop yesterday, and 11.5C in the CXL and 11D in the suede both fit me nicely.

In some companies, that's grounds for firing. Unless, of course, you work at Stirling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce. Nice shine!

 

Or, just come to New Orleans.  All whiskey, all the time!

Is there such thing as an unlined Natural CXL Blucher?

Had to share this. A new pair of 986s and a customer's 30+ year old pair.

Agreed, great shot.

A little TLC, and they could look 5 yrs old also. That's part of what is amazing about well cared for shell.
