    Another point of comparison - I happened to wear my Alden of Carmel Cigar LWBs today as well. I took a couple of shots in different lighting....

    Pebble-grain is infinitely awesome. I'm wearing pebble-grain shortwings right now.

    I got them used off B&S. Previous owner probably wore them 5-6 times and I did the same so can't return. My earlier Barrie lasted shoes were 8.5D but realized that I'm better in a 8D. I add leather insoles to my 8.5 shoes so I can still wear them. The Marlow in 8.5D is a little loose for me in the heel even with an insole. Gives me blisters on the side of my heel.

    hmmh, it's a casual shoe per definition. should look good in lighter shades, imo.

    Quick question for all the cordovan experts:

    Is this creasing excessive or reasonable? (Alden 990 #8 Cordovan)

    Normal and I think the leather looks dry. How old is the shoe?
