    Hopefully things will change. Although the customer service is generally excellent with TSM, it takes luck to catch them prior to an order and maybe get size in with their special make-ups.

    If you had the choice between Ravello or Cigar LWB which would you choose?

    Cigar with light trim is a pretty unstoppable shoe.

    If I still had my stable of calf shoes, then ravello. Although cigar is a great color, it is a shade of brown which calf can be used to supplement. Ravello is just a very unique color that is hard to come by.

    I really want a pair of #8 LWB. Where's the best/cheapest place to order? The ones on Jcrew aren't shell right?

    Also if I wear a size 8.5 Indy boot what size would I need considering the width of the Indy boot is just right for me.

    I wear 8.5 d in the Barrie and bought a 9d Leydon, which is too snug. I wish I went with a 9e or 9.5d.

    Soylent, may I ask which shoe you purchased on the Leydon last? Boot or shoe? Calf, shell, or suede?

    Thank you!

    The too snug shoe is a suede chukka. It's 9d, but I really could have gone with a 9e or even as big as a 9.5 d (I tried these larger sizes later to confirm). The 9d has stretched a bit, so I can wear it, but I know a larger size would have been better.

    edit: Not the best jeans for this shoe now that I look at this pic. Or they could have at least used another roll...:confused:

    Gotta love getting dressed in the dark

    They work brilliantly!

    But of course. With the flannel greys on I had on that day, the #4 worked perfectly, IMO

    Uncle, this is the boot that always makes me drool. Cigar captoe on the plaza is perfection

    This is not accurate. All of Alden for J.Crew's longwings are either calf or CXL.
