    My shell comes off and the work boots go on before I turn a wrench, however.

    Hydrauic Oil and ravello does not mix.

    Man, you've got to move fast on certain shoes. Saw these at work and was going to purchase when I got home. They're already gone. Probably for the best but it was a beautiful shoe.

    RTP: ..... For me, the color 8 shortwings will have to suffice. I've been on the fence for the wingtip boots as they are very similar to this shoe. Anyone have any thoughts??

    For nearly every shell boot I own, I also own the corresponding shoe. If it's a style you like, go for it.

    Help! Wanting to order BB shell tassel loafer. I have a sizing question. What size to order, me TTS 9.5D.
    I have the following makeups
    BB Unlined 9D Van last. Perfect fit.
    Alden LHS lined 9D. fit is loose.
    Barrie 9D

    Being loafer they will give some. I just don't want to order a size and five years hence wished I'd gone down a half to my Van Barrie size. I have had many of these in my younger days but have forgotten the correct size. I have one BB sales agent who says go Van in the cordovan as it's larger than the calf makeup. NYC Madison dept., manager who says go TTS. What I don't want is to be racing for a plane and have to be fishing pant legging out of loafers.

    Anyone here buy a pair of natural CXL split toe shoes from muchocoins in size 11 and receive a left in 10.5 and a right in 11?
    If so, I've got your left in 11 and you've got my left in 10.5.

    Hello gentleman, lovely boots all-around. Purchased my first pair
    of Aldens from ShoeMart.

    [​IMG]


    Really liking them so far but the below pic has been nagging at me.
    You'll notice the right boot's leather is...I'm not sure on the correct
    term, "wrinkling" or aging differently. Is this to be expected?
    On the one hand, they're work boots...on the other, they're
    $500+ work boots (from ShoeMart).

    ^^^

    common, your feet are slightly different, the way you hit the ground is slightly different.

    a pair of mine that are similar
