    also, Will at LS is the man! got my #8 chukka and natural tankers in yesterday/today [​IMG]

    took a risk with the tankers on a 11.5C, little tight across the vamp.. anyone had success stretching, if even slightly? I can deal with as is, but just a tad more room would be cash

    TIA

    Sorry, are these the CXL tankers? The CXL will give a little with wear.

    Interesting - thanks, Seven. I think if you watch the Horween videos you will see shell hides large enough to make into belts. My belt feels and acts like regular shell - It does not have a Horween stamp and I don't remember any of the packagaing stating it was Horween, so it likely is from the Japanese tannery. I know BB used their shell for a while. It has served me well for quite a few years and it matches better than any other belt I have.[/quote]

    Glad to hear it, and thanks for the posts on this subject. :fonz:

    My brown CXL Tankers stretched a fair amount, most out of all my Aldens.

    For me, it depends on the jean. If it is a selvage jean that is long or looks good cuffed, then absolutely. If it is a pair that can either go cuffed or not, I usually go cuffed as I really enjoy watching people turn and look at my feet. Something about the cuffs makes the Alden's stand out.
