    ^ It's a natural match for denim and chinos.

    Go with the longwing, you already have an Indy.

    After that, move on to suede or cordovan

    Just as a warning, natural will darken over time and probably end up the same shade as the indy's.

    shade as indy's is fine. i'm good with cordovan i had 3 pairs of cordovan i ended up selling all 3. 2 alden longwings one cigar, one ravello, and one alden indy in #8. cordovan is just not for me lol.

    the regular leathers are fine maybe i'll check out one of the snuff suede shoes they have. i ordered the longwings in natural chromexcel thanks guys. :slayer:

    sorry for asking the same question that's been asked a million times

    i'm a solid E in the trubalance. my toes are pushing up against the side of even an E

    same size in the grant probably won't work for me, huh?

    haven't had time to go try on a grant yet. hoping to one of these days

    Houndstooth and check sportcoats are like Aldens and Lays, you can't just have one!

    Dude, I'm living in the poor house right now. I have 2 pairs of Crockett and Jones on order, as well as 2 pairs of Tricker's. :(

    Since we're talking about houndstooth, which do you prefer, #1 or #3? Both are different, yet similar to me.

    I like #2. The bit of blue makes a nice contrast

    Thanks, Uncle!

    The natural CXL looks great with jeans and chinos, in my opinion. I just had these guys arrive, courtesy of our friends at Epaulet. I like them even better in person than I did online, which is really saying something.

    +1. If I had to choose 1 or 3 I'd go 3...don't like taupe.
