Question: What color is the edge dressing on the Alden J Crew Captoe #8 boots? Looks black then sometimes I am not sure if it is dark brown.

I agree with BK. Or go for brown CXL PTB on commando! I've been eyeing those as well on top of my Leffot Greenwich SW boots preorder in reverse chamois. I also have Natural CXL Indys from EP. The rest is horse nod[1].gif

I have lots of great boots for the winter but wanted a shoe. I was debating the winn perry preorder for the NATCXLLWB on commando and now I'm debating the brown CXL PTB on commando.


I'm a LWB guy, but either would be great!

Who's ad is this?

They look like they were Renomat'd and then re-acrylic'd, due to the stitching. 

Not a bad thing, just curious who did them.

That is pretty cool.  Seller says they were faded by the sun and it does look that way given the very high contrast in color (at least to my eye) between the tongues and the rest of the boots.  Though you would think they were laced up to avoid fading on the tongue.  Makes me wonder if these were recently resoled after significant wear.  In which case the patina is awesome but the seller is not being honest.

 

(Note:  I have no idea.  Seller could be 1000% honest for all I know.  Have no position any which way.)

Does a PTB in Chamois exist?

Alpine grain wouldn't be a bad choice at all, nice suggestion.

It's my top pick at the moment. That Greenwich SW boot is unreal, congrats on that one, I debated but I don't need another boot.

I missed the boat on the NATCXL LWB on commando but we will see if any sizes pop up on the Winn Perry site in Jan when they are expected.

It is worthwhile to contact them and see if they can reserve you one in your size, assuming they ordered it for stock (standard sizes only though).  I know this is possible.

post #89759 of 96968

Hi all, I am seeking for some sizing advise on the Aberdeen Last, hope you guys could help me out.

 

I am a : 7.5E Barrie boots

             7.5D Barrie blucher and Tru-balance boots

 

I also tried on 7.5D Aberdeen blucher, the length of the shoes is OK but quite tide in the instep area, on the other hand, it's quite loose in the heel area.

 

What size do you think I should take on a Aberdeen Boots? Thank you so much for the help!

 

Steve

Not mine bust since they are machine stitched they are pretty old. Alden has been only offering hand stitching on cordovan boots for a while now sadly.
