    Nice shoe. The 6 eyelets are something you dont see very often. Aberdeen I go out one width ( 11.5D to 11.5E rather than up a half size.

    Yeah, we'll see. Last week, I ordered the Nat. CXL WTB for 25% off using a one-time code for cardholders. I've been "waitlisted" for items from them before and never gotten them, not because of a code, but because they oversold the items. I'm not expecting actually getting them, but it would be a pleasant surprise :)

    I contacted J.Crew and they won't penalize on the order that has been placed. They admitted it was their system problem. Which model did you guys order? It was a good deal. Too bad the Shell only has crepe sole on it.

    ^LwB shell. I don't have a pair of shells. I have a pair of PS short wings that that are cafe leather which is in the same color. I know you can't really compare, but I just wanted something different hence I don't mind the crepe sole. Plus I can always get them resoled. First pair of shells, so stoked!!! Anybody confirm the last for the LwB is barrie?

    I don't think Alden makes any LWBs that are not on the Barrie last, unless it's a custom order (there's a forumer who had 5 pairs of #8 LWBs custom made in the Grant last).

    The BB Black Fleece LWBs are on the Grant.
    Also Leather Soul and Epaulet have sold LWBs on the Leydon.
