    Not sure what your LWBs look like, but pay attention to the welt on both shoes. My whiskey PTB's have an all around welt that makes them look a little more substantial than a shoe with a closed welt like the Jcrew captoe boot

    I want to liberate those #40 Indy shoes thought I already have the 405s. I can justify that, right? :nodding: Right?

    Congratulations all - even I'm surprised by how quickly anything in my size vanished (having the site posted only yesterday, and I checked it out this morning).

    Well, I picked up two things both in #8. NST (10.5EE) and quarter brogue cap toe boot (11.5D). Neither in my known preferred sizes, but I'm going to try them on and see.

    I've always admired the NST, and had thought about getting it in Cigar, so I am very doubtful about keeping those. Also, I bet the EE will be too wide.

    For the boot, thinking that if I can wear them with thick socks and the length doesn't make me trip over everything, I might get some commando-style soles put on them and just wear them no matter what the weather.

    At worst there's only return shipping to pay.

    Or people can feel free to PM me and, if these don't work out for me, I'd be happy to move them to a fellow SF member at cost.
