    Anyone have experience with the Alfred Sargent 99 last fitting compared to barrie/trubalance?

    My roommate literally just got his AS 99 shoes in this morning - he also wears Barrie lasted shoes (LWBs).

    He's a US 7D in the Barrie and UK6.5 on the AS 99. He says the AS 99 is snugger all around but that's what he went with. The toebox is much slimmer on the AS 99 according to him.

    Some of you were lucky enough to purchase one of Horween's cordovan belts and I believe are quite pleased. I just picked up one of their peeble grain belts and it's a great jeans belt. I asked Nick about shoes in this leather, Ruffian a variation of Chromexcel with the same pebble grain as the leather they produce for NFL footballs, but I don't think it's in the cards.

    Take a look see what you think: http://horween.bigcartel.com/product/dark-brown-pebble-grain-belt

    Half size down from your Barrie/Trubalance size should work. I've tried the same size and it was certainly too large.

    Uncle,
    What are your feelings concerning the efficacy of using a deer bone for polishing and conditioning?

    you should note that the rolls spends most of its time in the shop whereas the porsche spends most of its time on the road
