    gusvs, that glowing leather on your pair looks...edible. I've no better word for it -- it must raise some serious patina within a decade.

    I sized down one size, but this was for the Sailor Last.

    No, I need shoes. All of mine are about ready for the garbage and resoles. I hate the idea of spending $700 resoling a bunch of shoes that are cracking and in bad shape compared to just getting new, better quality shoes.

    Care to share what's ready for garbage and what's ready for resole?

    All that is ready for garbage is also ready for resole. Three pairs of C&J's, one pair of Corthay's, and one pair of Barker Black (which are the most serviceable).

    I currently have one SC on order, one EG, and two Carminas.

    I have two ST.C and I am thinking of another St.C. I see no reason to order anything else by St.C from here on out.

    I can almost guarantee you're not going to like any of them.
