    Yes, the black shell captoe bals are the Hampton last. Quite a comfy last, with more arch support and a narrower waist than the Barrie.

    I hope was hoping to get some opinions on my next purchase. I'm wanting to get a dark brown Alden wingtip boot with a commando sole. I could get Alden of Carmel's AF84 Dark Brown Calfskin boot, but I've never seen how this leather looks in person after it's been worn. I'd be insterested in a Brown CXL wingtip boot, but all I've seen is Leathersoul's with the regular sole. I already have their Ultimate Jumper in Brown CXL that I'm gonna need to have resoled with a commando sole, part of me wants to find a pair of their CXL wings and have it resoled as well. Would CXL Jumpers and CXL Wings be redundant? One pair would probably go sitting if I had two in the same exact color. How does heir normal brown calf's character stack up against the CXL?

    Just pulled the trigger on a pair of these:

    Always been curious how long suede Aldens would last, so I guess I'll start the process of finding out.

    Cheers!

    I'm in the market for the basic shell LWB right now. I called Sherman Bros and they wouldn't give me the 15% over the phone. Did I say something wrong?

    First make-up that I've seen where the crepe sole doesn't bother me. Those look like they will be mighty comfy. Unlined, yes?
