    I can't wait to rock these with a nice blue or surplus green cotton suit, or jeans and a tee.

    Question: how best to protect these bad boys? Obviously they are not going to be impervious to stains and I don't mind beating up suede but these could definitely benefit from some added precaution given their color.

    Also...if someone has a good in for flat lace buying in other colors, let me know! these might get a swap...

    Really dig this setup. I wasn't really feeling the cigar finish, but these bluchers look awesome.

    I'm a bit tardy with my Cigar Cap Toe boots. These are with the Comando Soles and are from Alden DC . I am generally 10D TTS but wear 9.5D in the Barrie last. For these Cap Toes in the Grant last, I sized up to 10D on Kathy's recommendation. I love how they fit, generally slimmer, narrrower in the toe box but a bit longer. Really, whether to size up or not depends on how roomy the Barrie is for you; those that find the Barrie is slightly roomy could probably take the same size in the Grant. If the Barrie is fairly snug, then size up.

    These are sensational Uncle Mac. And I love the way you have laced them. Perfection as always.

    Uncle Mac, somehow your "special" shell colours always look that bit more special. That is such a beautiful colour.
