    I am interested in this topic as well. If I wear an 8D in the AE #5 last, what would be the equivalent Aberdeen size? Seems like you're saying it's 8.5D? Thanks.

    Stevent, I've been on the fence about those unlined PTBs all day.
    I just don't wear blue shoes very much.
    but they are damn nice looking.
    If you're going to go for suedes, why not get something with some character?

    Yeah I don't wear blue nor suede much but figure it's a light summer shoe perfect for LA, lot of the others seemed lined. And pricing is $100 than leather soul with shipping, though I do like the shortwing too



    No idea

    I personally like the suede wingtips better. The PTB can have a tendency to look a bit like slippers, especially in the Barrie last. I prefer the unlined Chukkas the best though, which are Leydon last and looks more sleek which seems to fit suede better, IMO.
