    ^^^^Looks fine to me. You've got a nice stack going, but you have to like how it looks.

    Haha speak for yourself! I've got long legs :D

    I had to find some super long jeans to achieve the same effect; great stack though :slayer:

    Looks good to me :slayer:. I always wair mine with skinny jeans/chinos. fuller legs hide the shoe, and "age" the look too much.

    According to Alden of NY, those are a pair of cigar NST on the Aberdeen last (scroll down to the last shoe on this page to see it):

    I'm a "true" - I use that word lightly - 12.5B on the Brannock (I can wear a 12B on Barrie/Trubalance). I ordered these in a 12C, which is one width up from my Barrie size. I thought maybe the extra width would give me enough room for a good fit, but the Leydon is a relatively narrow last so it's still too tight. I can try a 12D, but that might end up being too wide without giving me the length I really need.

    Ideally I would like to try a 12.5C, but I don't think I can get that in an exchange from NRO. A 13 would almost definitely be too long, so looks like I might be screwed because I can't get a refund from NRO, only an exchange. If I can at least get a 12D from them to try on but they still don't fit, they will certainly end up on B&S here!
