    To be fair, Adam has extremely high standards on shoes that he considers firsts quality. I got a pair of what he deemed as "seconds" that were in much better shape than some of the QC issue shoes i've seen in this thread.

    This might be kind of a stupid question, but I'm getting to the point now where it's bothering me enough to ask:

    For some reason, I'm unable to get my laces to stay tied on my black cordovan captoes. They're the round, waxy laces. No matter how I tie them, they always seem to get undone after walking a few dozen feet or so.

    Any tips on how to maintain a better knot? :D

    Whiskey NST at my Dr. office. Second sinus infection in two months. Sucked having to wait STANDING for over 2 hours. At least being sick gives me time to mark the pile of midterms just gave...

    I viewed and posted that somewhere above in the past. It certainly changed my life. I can't remember the last time I had to re-tie my shoes but previously, for my entire life I was always having to bend down and tie my shoes throughout the day.

    Hey guys can anyone shed some light on the Aberdeen last?

    I know people have said it's a narrow last with a large heel cup. Also people say that it runs true to size. Does everyone who wears these size up one width being it a narrow last?

    ie. Barrie 11.5 D to Aberdeen 12 E?

    I own shoes on the barrie, van, m58 and trubalance jut not sure of this last.

    You would likely either be a Aberdeen 11.5E or a 12D
