    This is good to know, thank you! I never had any issues with my CXL Bayfields in the 2 years that I had them, and I wore them hard. I ordered my replacement ones a half size up from Lands End Sunday and am hoping that they will be at the house when I get home tonight. Glad to hear that Lands End will handle any issues if they come up.

    I don't actively keep up with this thread like I should, but those of you getting special cordovan make up's in all sorts of styles, how are you doing so? What cordovans are available and is any style on the table, basically?

    Apparentlly, the STP's for sale are the "combination" models, not the full toe.

    Fine, but I happened to notice the sizing table is not quite the same as for the "full toe" model. For example, a 10.5 EE is a Lg in the full toe but an XL is recommended on the combo table.

    EDIT: and the "free shipping if ordered via smart phone ap" deal apparently only applies to 'droids, not iPhones.

    Still, even paying about $8 for shipping, an order of three worked out to about $41 or less than $14 each shipped.

    I'm not sure if you have a typo there, or if you meant to ask about another type of leather by mistake... But yes, a mirror shine can be accomplished on calfskin. Calfskin is what you are supposed to obtain a mirror shine on (if you want one). Other leathers, like shell cordovan, can obtain mirror shines as well, but general opinion is that it isn't as desirable.

    I'm interested in a pair of Strawfut. Should I go with the same size as I wear in other 5-last shoes (McAllister)? Does the linen change sizing at all?

    I got the free shipping using an iPhone app. I'd call Sierra and ask to wave it.

    As a relatively new owner of grown up shoes I was under the assumption that mirror shines are more easily obtainable on Cordovan shoes than Calfskin. But thank you for the clarification.

    I bought my Strawfuts in the same size as my other 5-last shoes and they fit the same.

    I have the brown/navy mesh version. From my understanding, the linen is a bit different as the linen has leather linings while the mesh is mesh only. However, I would think they would fit the same.

    12.90 is the regular price at the Rack, not the sale price

    Major, major sale probably after Christmas and New Years. Super sale is more like once a year in late July.

    What are you looking for? Sometimes www.6pm.com has great deals on firsts.

    All my best,

    David

    I have the Strawfut in linen and black mesh. I find the fit to be identical, and very comfortable.

    Hey guys,
    I can't believe I beat my main man, Dave Copeland, about the upcoming Labor day 2nds sale. Just got the postcard today. Runs from Aug 22 to Sept 2. Walnut Cliftons for $179 :bounce2: . That's one fine shoe. Anyway, here's pix I took of the postcard. I think it's clear enough, but if not I can type out the sale prices. Get ur credit cards ready...
