At any rate, was hoping that someone could let me know what they actually are. Appreciate the help in advance.
They look like they're on the Modified last, with kidskin leather. Just a guess though.

Yes, H410

It wasn't an order, it's a repair I'm waiting on. Wore them 3 times and the sole separated from the upper.

Tom,
- Comparing this with the Natty CXL Longwings form Epaulet, it looks like their version has a more brownish red tint to it while yours has a more yellowish-tan cast. Would you say the actual batch you will have at the trunk show is more the former or the latter?

- Is the NST Barrie or Trubalance last?

- What time does the trunk show at LSBH start?

I agree...I still haven't warmed to CLX in "natty"....to me it looks wan, bland...its pallid complexion sorta reminds me of cream soda which I hate and thus leaves me feeling slightly barfy...

I am curious to see how it ages but for now I am happily out of the "natty" game...much to my wallet's delight.

Alden Black Long Wing Cordovan

hello,

Alden Black Long Wing Cordovan, natural leather visible under the black? is this normal? are there different qualities out there?

thanks, best Stefan

^ My black shell full wing bals look exactly like that. Dab some black polish into the broguing with a Q-tip and shine if it bothers you.

Please help me decide...

I'm having a hard time deciding between cigar or ravello longwings. I'll mostly be wearing them with jeans and slacks occasionally. Any insight is greatly appreciated, Thanks
post #7781 of 99243
^Personal preference... I'd go for Ravello first before Cigar though.
post #7782 of 99243
^and i think there is no better pair of shoes on earth to wear with raw denim than the cigar longwings. lol. i have the whiskeys, i wish i had the cigar.

Yeah, wax or shoe cream would never cover up that huge defect.

Someone please teach me how to use my camera!

The true color of this run is actually more on the brownish side.

Photo taken with my iPhone... (more true than the picture taken with my $1800 camera!)
