May pick up a pair of color 8 SW bal or LWB.



Wish they'd bring the ravello, which I think Alden DC has.

 



I swear I just saw the Cigar LHS in 8D on the site.
I saw it too.

Here is the general cheat sheet for lasts:
Barrie shoes: Size down a half size
Barrie boots: Either size down a half size or TTS (I wear TTS)
Aberdeen / Plaza: TTS
Grant: Either TTS or a half size up (as they are typically boots, I may recommend going a half size up to your TTS and putting in an insert if you need to eat up room)
I tried Anatomica but they have really few sizes in their shop and they have a personnal approach when it comes to sizing. According to them I should get two size bigger that I am used to wear.
Didn't know Berteil, I will give them a visit, thank you.

Do they ever have Es at TSM? I've only seen Bs and Ds for the rare shells.

Okay guys, now that the temperature here is consistently hitting the upper 70s and lower 80s I'm ready to grab some white (not cream) suede or nubuck bucks.  I really like the white LWBs that Leffot just released and the regular bucks that we've seen on here.  My only hesitation is paying $550 for shoes that I can only wear a few months of the year.  Are there any good/acceptable and cheaper alternatives in a wingtip or plain buck in white that I should consider?  I almost hit the purchase button on those LWBs, but I want to look around before I pay that much for these.  Thanks as always.

Jeeez $730 for a pair of loafers. I don't think I can get there. Although Cigar with the antique welt does look great.

J Crew Kenton is 30% off right now in a off white suede buck, red brick sole as too.  Would be under $200

I noticed that, but isn't that more of an off white or cream color?  My local store doesn't have these, and it's hard to tell by the web pics.  And, honestly, I'm really digging the wingtips but don't know if anywhere else offers these at a somewhat cheaper price with decent quality.  Seersuckers and white bucks/spectators and loafers is my favorite time of the year!

The jcrew PCT is 270 welt. The heel portion is not welted. Google it for a better idea. Essentially it gives the heel portion a sleeker, dressier look. 

 


This should give you an idea.

Thanks man. The pct I think I prefer over the CT. I want a version with commando soles, but only the ct at Unionmade has commandos.

I think pct has more character.

I agree, but I can't think of a PCT on Commando. You could always add a commmando at your first resole. Send it to B.Nelson or equivalent.
