Hello friends. I'm considering Brogue's Ruby Hill boot. Could someone confirm that the 379X last is not available in C widths (or narrower)? I'm a C width on all other lasts, but I'm wondering if I could get away with a D width here. Thank you!

random question - has anyone ever see any LHS make ups with a neo-cork sole? or is that pretty much reserved for boots?

Very nice tie!
Thank you! My only 100% wool tie; probably one of my favorites because it reminds me of old films and the Golden Age of Cinema.

It's a Sam Hober.

Scored these beauties as seconds from TSM. Appears to be the Calton Hill Balmoral from Brogue. Only flaw I can find is the semi-circular surface scratch near the facings on the right shoe. Seems to want to crease a little at that point, so I’ll try the pencil trick to set the crease.

Loving the makeup!

D & E only.

You won't find Neocork on loafers (too heavy). It's mostly for boots and shoes that are appropriate for the sole.
