    Couldn't sleep tonight, so had an extended mac/reno session with my Cigar LWBs, CXL Indys, and #8 974s.


    These are quite lovely - denim? PBJ xx005? Momotaro 702?

    The treadstarter would get you in the right direction. Since it was 2008 it might need a bit of adding and subtracting with Winn Perry gone. But you can add in Tassels HK, Tres Bien, Frans Boone...

    In light of your photo an Orson Wells quote:

    "Create your own visual style... let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others"

    Not until the tax return comes and we can invest in a decent camera. Have taken enough flak for my crappy Galaxy 1 photos in other threads :embar:

    Alden 6-eyelett chukka (shoes are neither as dusty or as creased as they appear in the photos, I blame an iPhone and the lighting):

    I needed a pair of black shoes in my rotation and wanted to give a shout out to CTYGGG who posted up his 6-eyelett chukkas a while back and inspired me to go out and get these. It's really a nice makeup and I'm glad I got a boot since I will likely get much more use out of them compared to a shoe.

    See, there are things we can agree on - those are hideous.

    Looking good, enjoy wearing them! The six eyelet chukka is by far superior to the two eyelet version for fit & the close heel and flat welt really dress it up. Would love to see a retailer do a make-up of this in cigar or ravello. Again nice purchase & wear them in health.

    Thanks for showing. Those look great, especially the Black shell. I'm a big fan of the 6 eyelet chukka.

    Close guesses! Actually it's canvas from North Carolina's Cone Mills by Rogue Territory

    localman, any more pics? Did you end up sizing down or go true-to-size? I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on TheShoeMart's since J.Crew's is a 3 month wait for me

    I actually thought the same thing. I have a couple of pairs of shell cordovan LWB in 10 D. I recently purchased a whiskey shell PTB in 10 D, and it felt noticeably more snug. Do y'all think I need to order a wider size (10 E) for the PTB?

    They should make up a longwing with that sole for the ultimate in trendy tackiness (worn with high water pants and no socks of course).
