    Hey - might as well get some mileage outta the pics! :embar:

    The color is tan - and it's still in the RTW lineup. They discontinued the Beechnut color (which I also have).

    They'd only had a few wearings in this pic. But they are doing well in the creasing dept.

    Wish I could see after a few more wears... my EG longwings have a lot of creasing for only a few wears

    That's odd - EG uses nice supple leather. Are they at all less than snug?

    Here are the Drummonds after maybe 12 wearings or so. Including a couple of long days of airports and cabs.

    If it's any consolation I have the exact same shoe in Beechnut color and it is showing more creasing than these. There really is no controlling it for the most part.

    perhaps its a fit issue? you sized up on the 888, right? sounds like they may be a tad long in the toe which could explain it

    That's it. I remember one of them was discontinued. Liking the Avatar. Threw me off that yours and Spoo's changed.

    Yeah I did size up but they seem to fit well - perhaps not as snug as I'd like but if I went down a 1/2 size I think they'd be too tight in the toe box

    But that said, I bet that's the reason they are creasing as much as they have

    It's definitely shown me that my favorite style is now a captoe for the longevity in aesthetics... the creasing never affects the overall look nearly as much as seen with any ptb or wingtip

    i have the grant on the 888 and they are really tight in the vamp area. 888 is slightly wider than 82 but has a smaller toe box and smaller instep. I got blisters a couple times before I stretched them out. now they fit perfectly with minimal creasing

    Well hopefully they will look good down the road.

    By the way, lovin' the Somerville boots... here they are after a couple wears, stellar fit and comfortable as hell for a non-clunky boot:

    Hey guys, I'm looking to purchase a pair of Ardens, which are on the 341 last. I own a pair of Audleys (337 last) in 8E UK, which are the best-fitting pair of shoes I own. I'm assuming an 8E in the Arden will be a good bet?
