    Is it typical to go up a width when going from a Hampton to a Leydon? I understand that the Leydon is a bit narrower than some lasts.

    I believe the leydon is actually wider than the hampton, based on:

    Here is my contribution towards sustaining "Patina Sunday"

    Year old Cigar LHS

    Might not be so much of a patina that they have developed, rather a need for a dose of cream and a good brushing!

    Alden's boot creams are not designed for shell, whether in neutral or any of their colors. The fact an Alden employee was using it for shell is truly confusing. I have all of their boot creams and use them all, but exclusively on calf. Saphir Reno and Venetian are rare in that they are recommended for calf and shell. I use both of those products as well, but I prefer reno.

    In my experience, the Leydon last fits smaller - shorter and more snug - than the Hampton. :nodding:

    I know, perplexing. Their shell shoes on display look great too.

    This price is insane. This is like gasoline after hurricane Katrina.
