    Just to show the variation in Cigar SC, my chukkas vs NSTs. Chukkas are much greener, which I like as it contrasts more with my PRL (Garran and McCallum) and #8 SC chukkas.

    NSTs much darker than my Marlow bluchers and wingtips, so a nice contrast there as well.

    For cripes sake RTP, rydenfan is not a troll.
    He's the leader of the whole world wide troll conspiracy.

    Poor Ryden, he's always been nice to me. Except for time he slapped my hand for posting a question about a Viberg shell release.

    Right you are sir. Never confuse droll wit for sarcasm, or in my case over reaching on a bad joke.

    coolarrow, you probably deserved rydenfan's comment. I know I certainly deserved mine. (jk, ryden)

    I don't see any difference, no. I only use it for dusting, really. I didn't want to use it for buffing and have to commit it to one color. This way I can use it more often. My wife bought it for me as part of my Valentines day gift along with a deer bone and some Saphir neutral cordovan cream. She is the best!

    Exactly my experience. For me, Barrie = 10D for LWB and chukka ; 10.5D for boots (because of the tighter vamp). Grant CTB = 11D (10.5D just didn't work in the toe box).

    Could be from a number of places.

    NRO and Unionmade have stock right now though.

    I am going to wear them around the house tonight - I don't mind a snug fitting spring / fall boot, I am guessing that once I break them in a bit I'll be fine. But they are not the loose Barrie fit, that for sure.

    I am somewhat concerned about the 10.5D Plaza boots that I have coming though...
