    Haha no worry. I will go after work today. Does anyone know their hours? I won’t be there until around 5:30 or so.

    What exactly is the difference between the double monk 10003 vs 80250?

    Off from work for the week, I decided to try my hands at dyeing the MTO carmina chukka boots. These were in Essex hatch grain leather. It's true that there is a issue with finishing coming off on this leather and I never much liked the dull tan color these had earlier. I am pretty satisfied with the result and may e wearing these more.
    Here are the before and after pics -

    Has anyone tried the Pina last? How does it fit? It looks similar to the Van last from what I can tell (very rounded). I'm a 7.5UK in the 325 C&J or an 8D on the Alden Barrie Last. Any size recommendations?

    Also, does anyone have experience with the redenbach sole? What is it? Is it worth the upcharge on some suede loafers?

    JR Soles are the bees knees. They last forever. Seems like a definitely worthy upgrade.

    Redenbach soles are used by a lot of brands. It's a harder wearing sole. You might recognize it as there is a JR stamped on the soles. Allen Edmonds used to and possibly still does use them on all of their shell cordovan footwear.

    A bit of an upcharge but it'll be a long time before you need to take them to the cobbler.

    I'd like to get a pair of the 80450 bal boots, but could use some opinions on the exact makeup. I'm settled on armagnac cordovan for the toe and vamp, but undecided on the upper. I'm thinking some sort of suede, either brown or polo.

    Also undecided on the last. I do like the simpson last but have been interested in trying out the inca last as well...

    Thanks in advance for the help!
