    #8 today (which is a multiple of 4, and I suppose a pair of #8s makes #16, which is 4x4, which is the eyelet pattern on those great looking #4s above... oh never mind).

    My Cigar LHS arrived today!

    Got Loafer?

    I haven't worn the Cigars yet, but they already have some creasing on them. No scuffs on the soles, but I am wondering if I should send them back for a brand new pair. Its probably from someone trying them on in the store, but for that amount of money it does sort of bother me. Its like paying full MSRP for a dealer demo car, sure it hasn't been titled yet, but its certainly not new. What do you think?

    They also have a few other imperfections, like some minor scratches and scuffs, and some "stains" that I have seen others complain about that must come from the manufacturing process. All-in-all I'd probably call them 93% condition.

    I called the store and they said they didn't have another pair in my size because they don't carry exotic colors in C widths, but they said they would accept them as a return. To get another pair would take months or longer.

    They were probably tried on before in the store.

    That happened to me in the past. I just lived with it.

    Hey Tom I really love the 4x4 style for a pair of PTBs so much more than the normal PTB style, do you think that you guys could come out with more shell offerings in the future using the 4x4 style?
