    Well, in that case, the snuff suede longwings have been ordered. Luckily they aren't supposedly going to ship until February so I have plenty of time to clear some space in my closet.

    I'm irritated with the unavailability of a plaza or grant lasted captoe boot. :fu:

    Especially with the Alden Jcrew selection

    People with indy 405s,
    do you feel like the leather stretches over time? so that it feels bigger than when you first tried the boots?

    For the first year , I wore them every other day. since they where my only pair of Aldens. Now they get worn twice a week. I just sprayed them when I first got them and brush them after wearing.

    Have you tried Alden DC? On my last several visits they have stocked Color 8, black and (oftentimes) Cigar cap toe boots on the Grant.

    The anti-speedhook camp appears to be growing. (Join us.)

    thanks for the tip Horsehide. I'm looking for some cigar captoes in Grant, so going to send them an email to enquire. Unless anyone wants to part with yours...I'm 10.5 in barrie, so prob an 11 in grant.

    ^ Many people take the same size on the Grant as on the Barrie (I'm one of them). Fair warning. If you can try them on first, I'd recommend that. The Grant can be tricky to size.
