    Rainy day, so some well loved #8 captoe boots for some work meetings.

    Order from somewhere that has good easy returns, like TSM. If I were you I'd try the B just to see how it fits. The CXL version is going to stretch more than the others.

    Great minds think alike...

    I actually called TSM today and they confirmed that Alden could immediately ship me some 405s in 9.5B. I already have the 403s, so could use something slightly different. In fact, according to the TSM website, only the 405s are available in in B width; black and CXL are available in C width.

    I am glad you mentioned "good easy returns" because I hate getting stuck with poorly-fitting footwear. If I go for the 9.5B 405s and they work well, I might try to unload my very lightly worn 403s in 9.5D, but I must admit I have never, ever sold anything over the Internet.

    Thank you, gentlemen. I think I'll go for a 7.5D for the wingtip boot in burnished calf. Hope it fits the same as the unlined shell dover.

    I had similar problems with the McCoppin. I ended up converting them to this:

    I could go for either a Tobacco Chamois or Hunting Green Reverse Chamois NST Tanker, Antique, Commando.

    Perfect to submit something in the next month or 2, and have them arrive for fall.

    I may be in the minority, but I love the darker color 8. I would rather it stay dark over time, or just skip to the heavily patina'd stage.

    Yeah that would be an unreal casual boot, contrast toe stitch and brass eyelets and hooks for maximum pop
