    Aaaah that makes sense. you basically just described my foot. Barrie works well for me and so does trubalance. I have a pair of balmorals on the hampton last that fit well too. I think I'm going to have to try the modified last next. Damn, I really wanted to make these boots work.

    Anyone looking for a pair of black cordo captoe plaza boots and would like to trade away something on the barrie/trubalance last in size 8d/8.5d?

    Just looking to see if anyone can post pics of their Leather Soul Ultimate Jumpers in CXL. I am hoping to see how they look in the wild and with some wear on them. Just hoping pics can help me decide if I can live with the reddish tint they seem to have.

    Agreed - awesome look all around W...I'm really digging those sand suedes. I have the sand suede LWB on pre-order from LSW and I'm dying for it to get here, and as if I didn't want these bad enough already, this pic really makes me want to wear them now with the summer coming up so soon. Still probably got about another year to wait yet :cloud:

    Thanks, gents!

    I've worn these so many times that the $300 spent on them has been well worth it.

    In addition to a pair of Ravello, I will be on the look out for an irregular pair of snuff Chukkas.

    Interesting...I hated those pants in the first picture, but they work as part of a whole outfit.

    The orange slacks are still cotton so it's more like a high rise pair of chinos. I have the linen version too!


    It was Monday so I needed to spice it up. :slayer:
