i have sherman brothers bringing in a ptb and a longwing, both in #8. i am conflicted about which one should be my first cordo. the ptb looks like it will be more versatile, but i really like the longwing, too. unfortunately, getting both isn't an option. any thoughts?

I purchased 2 pairs of cordo LWs before i bought my first pair of cordo PTBs. LWs are very much 'in' right now but you cant go wrong with either style. I can wear both styles with suits, jeans, etc. It may just come down to sizing, availabilty, price, etc

Aren't these exactly like the Alden for J Crew captoe boots? OIC: the sole is different...

I was asking about the stitching of these shoes, and did not give the impression that they were mine. Yet, they are very beautiful!

Tom is the Nassau blucher yours exclusively? IMO it's way better looking than the traditional Alden PTB. Would be interested in seeing much more of this shoe (in a sleeker last, maybe?). It's fantastic.

If I wear an 8.5D on the trubalance in Chromexcel, would a size 8.5D that is also on the trubalance last in CORDOVAN fit a littler bigger? if so, by how much? I have a pair of roys that fit slightly slightly tight at 8.5D around the side of the foot and the top. would the same size and last in Cordovan ensure a perfect fit?

^ 8.5D should be fine.

Question for Tom: will Alden tell you when the special makeup shortwings will be available or is it a standard "six to eight months" and they just show up? Thanks

They tell me when they're ready. Recently Alden has been taking 2-3 months just to confirm orders, then 4-6 months to make. The larger the order, the longer it takes as well since they are normally made in batches.
