    Mine are indeed getting lighter and lighter. It took about 18 months or so for any noticeable patina to begin to develop, but now it is definitely coming along.

    Mine are doing this too after a year. Definitely moving towards a deep butterscotch color.

    made an uncharacteristic (for me) double up purchase - i've been enjoying my natural cxl chukkas so much that i ordered the brown cxl version from the shoemart. i should say i hesitantly ordered them because they are so similar to what i have, but i'll gauge them when they get in on friday and i can compare in person.

    what size are you normally? those are 9 M (medium?). If they were a 9 in barrie than they may have fit.

    I havn't managed to size myself in the various Alden lasts yet.

    From what I understand (correct me if need be) sizing shoes and boots dont neccessarily translate.
    for example if i knew i was a 12E in a Barrie in an Captoe Boot, I wouldn't necessarily be a 12E in a LWB or a LHS - and this is without the Calf / CXL / Shell complications

    Tried on some TruBalance CXL Indys a year ago that were IIRC 9 no idea what width (stupidly i wasnt paying attention to size or width). They were snug.
