    You lucky blokes with your whiskey are killing me. Perfect shade with jeans. Enjoy!

    David in the earlier post got my hopes up, saying whiskey from AoC was on the way. Adam from AoC and I exchanged emails during which he denies having any stock or incoming orders [​IMG]

    It should happen naturally and pretty quickly. I got a pair of natty wt boots last December. I apply some Reno once in a while and wipe/brush/buff after every wear.

    Hey guys a quick sizing question:

    I wear 8.5EEE in AE's 5-65 last (Strands) and they are a little long but the width is good.
    I have 8.5EE ranger mocs from Rancourt & Co and they are a little narrow, so I know I have a super wide foot.

    I have no real access to any Alden stores or any high end shoe stores for that matter, so what size would I be for TruBalance/Barrie lasts? (Looking to get some Indy's or something similar soon but can't size myself and nowhere offers > E widths)

    All the whiskey pics and warm spring weather influenced my choice of footwear today.

    I have a similar fit but in 12 EEE. For boots on TruBalance/Barrie I find TTS (8.5 EEE for you) works well. It gives you more width and length isn't as important in a boot. For shoes you'll probably have to go down at least a half size.

    Alden SF should be able to set you up with a EEE (http://www.aldenshop.com/DrawSearchBySize.aspx)

    They are about a year old, obtained them via the Alden DC MTO thread. We gave Kathy the details of our make-up and Alden produce them. Whiskey shell, speedhooks, storm welt, close heel, double waterlock sole & Foot Balance heel. Kathy is the best. :)

    The captoes?
    Just go to the J Crew website and pick your size. It says when they're expected.
