    I plan to post a suede care article on my blog in the next few weeks, but recommend a suede brush, Saphir conditioner (as needed) and nano (periodically).

    Didn't know you could get Alden in HK. Does Tassels price competitively? How broad are is their collection? Traveling to HK in June and I'm looking into Indy 405's or anything in shell, preferably a tassel moc or a Norwegian blucher.

    Tassels's price is a bit more than retailers in the U.S.

    If you are VIP of tassels, u can get 10%off even cordovan shoes.
    Price of cordovan boot is $6900 hkd * 0.9 = $6,210 /7.8 = 796USD.
    I guess it is a fair price. i bought a 4065 cap toe boot from AoM, with the states tax it is very close to tassels price.

    If u are going to buy Indy it is $5000HKD, i guess u better get it from the shoe mart with free tax and shipping

    All of my long wings felt larger out of the box than my plain toe bluchers (all shell). Not enough to change sizes. There are some who size up a half for barrie boots vs shoes. Also, there may be slight variations from shoe to shoe. If you buy in person, try on a few pairs. You may notice one pair fits better than another in the same model.

    I was lucky and recently bought these and a whiskey pair size 11D from the shoe mart. I just happened to see my size on their website & pulled the trigger.

    I am on a wish list at TSM for cigar LWBs, and I hope they will have that same welt/edge color. Those are beautiful!

    most of the barrie shoes are with storm welt... i found it is 0.5size larger than the flat welt boot
    E.g US7 cap toe boot will be very close to US6.5 990 ptb

    Thanks - I'm pleased with the edge/welt but I do wish the cigar was lighter - I'll just have to wear them a ton in the sun!
