    Uncle, you know I had a dream that the leather was starting to crack last night, I think they are in need of some TLC now. I wanted to really beat them up for a good amount of time, to give them some great patina, I think they are there!

    That's some weird sizing there.
    I wear a 44 in common projects and an 11D in most Allen Edmonds.
    The CPs feel narrow on me.
    I also take a 10.5 in Indy.
    Those J Crew boots are on the TruBalance which is the same as the Indy.

    If those Chukkas you had were the unlined ones, they were on the Leydon last.

    Blank, I'd go with the 11's. On the Trubalance the 11.5 will be too big

    I'm 11.5 in AE and from what I have read I went with 11 for the J Crew Alden plain toes. Won't receive them for a couple more days so I can't say for sure what the fit will be like.

    The Chukkas were unlined. I think I'll try the 11's. Might pick up two and just return them to the store.

    I think they look awesome as is. Wear some more, then shine them up for a formal event.

    Need some quick advice RE: Alden tan unlined chukka...would you still wear them with dark denim this far into the fall season (in the northeast, Boston area)? I normally don't wear them much once it gets cold but it's so damn nice today at ~60 degrees F, I wonder if they'll seem out of place?

    If it was 95 out would you be worried about wearing shorts?
