    The CJs aren't true lasted, but they have some nice shape to them at conforms better to the shoes than the generic woodlore stuff

    True, but from experience, he fixes his goofs quite well. Get on it rudals, let's see those CJ trees!

    idk what the alden trees cost, but tbh, if he does not want to be dropping a hundo or more on trees, which is very reasonable, sticking with 10-16 woodlores is a fine way to go imo.

    correct, the aldens, or any reg cedar trees will not mess up the last. its just that semi laster trees are arguably better and definitely prettier, but id just move on and not worry about it. not all my shoes have lasted shoes either.


    blue windowpane without question is better imo.

    Phew. Good news. Your navy truly owns those two wp's.
    Think the blue is good for everyday, well not every day.

    I'd take both. I really like them. I have problems though. That being said, I'm glad to hear they aren't your wedding suit.

    The grey seems short from this angle.
