    I would like to score the Ravello PTBs from Anatomica before I surrender to the onslaught of rising shell prices.

    Hey Mr. C., did you have those J.Crew #8 captoes recrafted or resoled? Can't tell for sure from the pic, but it looks like the welt/sole edging is lighter than the black that mine have. The lighter or antique edging would have been my preference. Great collection!

    I wish I could try this size on. I have the Indy 403 in an 8.5D. With Smartwool Light Crew socks, the 8.5 fit easily. Not snug at all but not slipping out of them.

    I also wear an 8.5 In Red Wings Iron Rangers as another shoe fit. Is there any reason to think the Cordovan 8D would fit? IF so I am very interested, I prefer the double leather over the commando sole so these would be perfect.

    Thanks, George! For anyone else interested, I treated mine with Montana Pitch Blend, which I love for CXL. It darkened the chamois quite a bit & seems to have made the boots into dust magnets, so it was probably not the best choice for this leather. Thank you for the post.

    Would love to work this out as well.

    I have 9EE Indys, and noone ever has EE, only Ds. I would love to be able to order Ds that fit, to save a lot of waiting time.

    How are you finding that the Hampton fit? True Size + 1 width? or no?

    I have been eyeing the Perf Cap Toe Bal in back and #8 to wear with a suits. The only problem is that I don't wear suits anymore. But I may again one day soon.

    This is a bad thing? Alden pricing is basically inversely proportional to their quality control for like the last few years imo.

    Thanks. That explains it. If one doesn't need the #8 boot to be dressy, the more casual look of an antique edge with the #8 (or cigar for that matter), makes for an awesome looking combination. Good choice on going with that.

    thank you! that being said, I wouldn't be opposed to a straight cap on grant last and double leather sole to have something on the dressier side.

    a great new make up from the bureau. I prefer the dover pattern but this pretty much of the best everyday shoes i've seen from Alden.

    So I just got my Epaulet Natural Brixtons about a week ago, and I wore them out one day last week. I'm thinking I want to get some sort of rubber sole protection for winter - is it too late now since I wore them out? Is there a decent place in Chicago I can get this done?
