    Good (kinda?): Some rando dude at work complimented me on my pants.
    Creepy: While in the men's room. At least it was at the sink.

    How do you like the LHS?

    I fit really well with Barrie, but have a LHS that kinda experiencing heel slippage after a month....And when it gets better, I found that walk a long distance is painful...

    Doesn't experience that kind of trouble with PTB in both shell and chormexcel..

    Thank to all (too many to list) of my SF pals for the kindness and prayers you've extended to my family and me over the past few days. You know who you are. I can feel the love and it's greatly appreciated... Chippy

    Guys, it is not a secret. They posted it on their Instagram maybe a year ago. Anyone who pinged and said they were interested received an invite.

    I have a pair of boots on 379X. Made for the Japanese market. Also known as the military last (I think). Very comfortable. I went with Barrie sizing (0.5 down from TTS).

    Interesting, I had not seen it before. Guess that makes sense if its primarily for the Japanese market. Can you post a pic? How would you describe the fit? I know the Japanese are really into the modified last as well, does it have a similar banana shape? I ask because there seemed to be a lot of TSM seconds with this last in my size this time around.

    Thanks!

    I have a comparison in some of my old posts in the old Alden thread. Search for 379X in that thread.

    I've got a sizing question for you guys. How do the Camp Moc's fit, I can't find what last they're on? All of my Alden's happen to be Van or Barrie and are all a perfect 8D. The Camp Moc's keep popping up on the 8D seconds list and at $189, I think they may be worth checking out.

    I still haven't received the 2nds email for 8.5D. Would someone on the list be kind enough to forward it to me? Thanks!

    Have you checked your spam folder? That's where mine ended up.

    Yep, that is usually the first thing I check as well, but nothing. Thank you though!
