    On what last are those offered by BB cordos?
    Are the sales online only?


    They're for sale online and in stores. Not surprisingly the last depends on which shoe you're talking about.

    Cap Toe Blucher: Snap (fits like hampton)
    PTB: M58 (fits like barrie but a half size smaller)
    Wingtip Bal: plaza
    Captoe Bal: hampton
    LHS: Unlined on the Copley last
    Monk, Tassel, Full Strap: don't know probably aberdeen.

    My vote goes for the suede, goes real well with dark jeans and chinos. As long as you do not wear them in the rain and give it a simple brush once in a while then it'll be good.

    I need your feedback guys. I'm having trouble deciding between the kudu chukka and the snuff suede chukka. They'd be worn with jeans or chinos. One concern is care and durability of the suede. What say you, gentlemen?

    The high end suede is quite durable with regular care (shoe trees, waterproofing, using one of those brick stain removers to remove stains, brushing, etc).

    Kudu - eyes glance over
    Suede - eyes get drawn to

    I have to say the snuff suede but make sure the indigo stops bleeding before wearing them.

    BB LHS not on the Van last?

    I've heard on the forums that they are Van lasted, but I was told by someone at Alden they are made on the Copley. I think they look physically different than a Van lasted LHS (some people say this is due to the fact they're not lined). For me though, I find Van lasted shoes very very uncomfortable, and the BB LHS fits my foot well.
