    Thank you--I didn't even think about Howard Yount.

    My suede lineup--Grenson, Rancourt, Carmina, Tricker's, Peale, McNairy

    The Carmina and Rancourt suede is incredible.

    Thanks!

    Well they haven't made it up to Marion yet:) In retrospect, I should have said I'm surprised to see other people from Indiana.

    I love everything about these except that double-sole (and I'm usually a fan of the double sole). It's too clunky for the overall design. I'd have liked to see these with a close welt, single sole.

    I disagree - these work in a crazy way.

    Alden Modified Last (take on USMC boondockers):

    I do like the double sole on the Carminas for whatever reason, but I can see the argument for a single.

    I really like those boots, Roguls. I love Alden's suede boots.

    I really like the soles on the Carminas. I'm having a sturdy shoes liking phase. :slayer:
    I would like some more pictures of the soles!

    Really like the double leather soles on the Carminas.

    And really like those suede Alden PT boots. (but I wish Alden would do that in roughout or chamois).

    I'm a small timer with only one pair... AE bellair's in snuff(?) brown... a sort of mid-shade, although I was expecting to receive darker...
