    trying to work out my size in the lydon if you could bear with me (it is difficult to try on)

    in barrie i can be either 8.5B/D or 8C/E .... because of my splayed forefoot an 8B/E would probably be perfect.

    I am cramped in the forefoot of an 8 B/D 8.5 B/D are a little long in the LWB (the unlined PTB are pretty perfect in 8.5 D) a 8E in the AWW is a little roomy in the heel.

    Not sure wether 8.5E or 9D would be the way to go in the Leydon?

    Pics or it didn't happen :)

    You should check out the CXL belts from Rancourt - they're perfect with Indy boots and great quality

    Thank you, RTP. Initially I preferred the BB with the heel foxing, but after acquiring the stock Alden version in #8 for a good price from an esteemed forum member, it grew on me and I may even prefer it for shell tassel make-ups. The Mocha Kid Suede from BB has the foxing, which I do like for that pair. The Cigar is not avail from BB, so its the only way to go, but I think I may prefer it without in cigar.
    So kind of you to say, Sir! It is one of my favorite pairs.
    Thank you MrDV. I have been looking to add Ravello LHS also, but will have to be patient. I anxiously await your collection pic.
    Uncle,
    Thank you very much.
    You have been a source of inspiration throughout its assembly.

    Gentlement - I believe we have found the source of the 'Shell Cordovan Shortage'!

    Seriously though, great collection!
