    Long time lurker, first time poster.
    Allow me to share my humble experience: I just purchased my first pair of boots in modifed last and here's a comparison of me wearing a CXL chukka in Barrie last:

    and me wearing PCT boots in modified last:

    The PCT boots in modified last actually felt more like my Leydon chukka than my trubalance indy.

    Really nice boots. So nice that I checked Epaulet to see if they had any more. Size 12D is all that's left.

    I wear mine with denim a lot. I've found that a washed or broken in pair if jeans look A LOT better than a crisp, raw pair. As for leg opening i never go more than 8 1/4. I find any more than that and you tend to hide the charm of the LHS under pantleg.

    (Not a great pic or with "ballin" denim but you get the idea)

    Thanks for sharing and welcome. Both your chukkas and boots are looking good. Interesting that you have a variety of lasts and haven't stuck to one or two. Since you have at least two pairs of the modified, how do you like the fit of the Indy?

    Do any of you shell LHS (Van Last) owners also own the C&J for Ralph lauren Marlow Shell Penny Loafer? Did you take the same size in each? Thanks in advance.

    They're almost certainly a return.

    J Crew does sell color 8 captoes (along some other models not listed on the website, such as a color 8 captoe blucher) in select stores
