    Those looks like #8 on light soles. The Belfast were selling these recently.

    applky: I stated boots AND bluchers. I didn't state balmoral boots FYI.

    I had a pair of AEs before as stated, and I recently acquired Crockett & Jones Audleys. While the prices are not of the same level, the quality is very noticeable. I put a shoe next to an Alden LWB and the lasts are also very noticeable.

    serr: You only buy garments made in USA? Seriously? Wouldn't that be extremely difficult. I mean down to undergarments and loungewear, and such.

    Yes, most of my shirts are Gitman, some from Bills. I have a few Viyellas made in the US. Stromy Kromer for winter hats and heavy twill shirts. Vermont Flannel for heavy flannel shirts, etc... All my pants are Bills. There are a number of great undershirt makers like Windjammer. A ton sock companies.

    I get all my winter underwear from Wicker http://www.wickers.com/?AID=10767866&PID=5503361&SID=Mbrand

    And all my boxers from City Boxer http://www.cityboxers.com/

    Wool outerwear from Bemidji Woolen Mills http://www.bemidjiwoolenmills.com/ and Filson.

    And Johnson Woolen Mills http://www.johnsonwoolenmills.com/

    And O'Connell Clothing has a lot of great products made in the US.http://shop.oconnellsclothing.com/

    I believe the newer cigar models are much darker. I was in the Alden store recently and their line of cigar is closer to #8 than any burnished brown I've seen. I can't say that I'd like them that dark because having a cigar and #8 would look too redundant with the same shoe style.
