    New AF53s today. Figured that by the time boot weather rolls around, it would be too late. They're stunning.

    Saz, those look stupendous! Hope that they treated you well today!
    Always a good day to go with the King. Looking good andiandi!
    That is the beauty of Shell Cordovan right there. It just gets nicer with each step we take.
    You should be. All Alden stock models are exquisite. They are tried and true and stock models for a reason. Enjoy your 9751's in good health.
    A nice makeup from our friends at AoC. Your King PT Boots are looking good and that is a healthy looking lawn you got going on there!
    The Mac Attack strikes again. Those Ravello Tassel loafers are a thing of beauty. They are nicely paired with your ensemble including the best of argyles. Hope that they took good care of you today.
    Those look to me to be a Burnished Tan Calfskin V-Tip Tassel Loafer. A pretty cool model and it is model number 6040. For more specifics, you can E-mail Alden's general account and see if they can backfill you more. -Mike

    Wearing my new Leffot Cooney boots today and I am loving the Aberdeen last. I have one other pair on the Aberdeen, but I've never worn them.

    These look great and I really like the fit. The combo of suede and the Flex soles makes these things feel like slippers! The suede is a bit shaggier than another pair of suede boots I have from another maker and I dig it.

    Already wondering if any retailer makes a suede derby shoe on Aberdeen...????

    What a coincidence! I happen to be wearing these today. And congrats on the Cooney, they're a lovely makeup.

    I just received a pair of Dover PTB 2nds from Shoe Mart, unlined in brown CXL. They certainly look good enough to keep, but they are a shade tighter than I expected. I always marvel at the knowledge people have here, so I'd appreciate any thoughts on whether:

    1) it is common for the unlined PTB to run tight? or 2) whether I can expect the unlined/CXL to give more than most shoes and allow some more room as they break in?

    [​IMG]

    They're not uncomfortable, but as you can see in the picture--the eyelets are pretty far apart. Too far?

    FYI, I am 11.5 D in Leydon (suede PTB and chukka) and 11 C in Indy, and went with 11 D on these CXL PTBs. These are my first try w/ Barrie.

    Well, I'm sure you'll get more authoritative opinions than mine, but the CXL should give some. An It seems like an 11D would be the right choice for someone who wears an 11 C in TrueBalance.

    Are they "these seem a tad tight" or "hmmm...I want these to work but they're kinda tight..." That last and a blucher design should be pretty forgiving IMHO...

    Just sold my Indy 401, how shall I match for the Oregon Hill Indy? To me it's a great versatile work boot for most occasions
