    It looks like all of the cigar, ravello, and whiskey went up $20 today.

    Leffot's is on the Barrie last, while Epaulet's version was on the Leydon.

    Just as another data point, as I mentioned before, the order I placed with the Presidents day sale did arrive, but I sized it wrong and had to have it exchanged. About 10 days after sending my boots back, the replacement came today, with an Alden special order slip in it. The level of email responsiveness was well within expectations for a small company, and they were always pleasant with me. It was my first NRO order, so I can't speak for them in the past, but this was all in a good experience, and I would try them again.

    On an unrelated note, I am tempted by the Leffot preorder tobacco chamois LWB's. Is it likely that 9E on Leydon Suede Chukkas == 8.5E on Barrie LWBs?

    Leydon runs narrow, E width fits like a D.

    8.5D would be your best bet for a Barrie lasted shoe.

    I recently dealt with NRO for the first time, and they were quite responsive with good customer service... Albeit the snuff suede PTB I bought won't arrive from Alden until some time in May...

    I saw those and was extremely impressed. I disagree re: Plaza. I think whatever they are on is perfect. So many seller go with a wingtip design; I find this one far superior.

    I've started to develop these small cracks on the upper my waxed calf LWBs. They are 9 months old, have always been shoe tree'd, and I have used kiwi neutral wax on them maybe 1/2 dozen times. I put some Meltonian leather balm on the crack, but it didn't seem to do much. Any recommendations?
