    In reference to the discussion regarding tassels & age, I'm 24. I'm definitely the only guy among my friends wearing tassels, but I'm certainly not getting laughed outta the joint

    Double cuff works well with beefy casual boots.


    We should do a Lexol group buy.

    Well I knew it was going to happen eventually. First pair, the Alden x Leffot Tan Suede Indy.

    Next pair is probably going to be the classic indy 405 ( was debating between this and 403/J Crew 405, but decided that I wanted something other than CXL as I already have CXL boots from AE and Wolverine) and the Alden x J.Crew No.8 Captoe.

    I have three pairs of Aldens as of now, but I think I might save up for a pair of longwing shell bluchers.

    Can one order shoes in different front and heel widths? One of my shoes are 11EE/D and they are a tiny bit wide in the heel area, but my unlined suede bluchers are 11 E/C and they feel pretty good, but I think 10.5 EEE/C would be a better fit as there I can see the sides of my feet push against the sides of the shoe, I guess it will be more visible since they are unlined.

    I was curious to know if anyone knew the difference in length for alden sizes on the barrie last from say a 7.5d to an 8d on the Barrie last. Are the increases congruent I.E. every half size= 1/2 an inch etc.

    Oh and there I'd thought you'd just taken your Alden family on a vacation. :)

    Nice shine on all of them!

    Can anyone tell me what the status is of that Carmina brown boot MTO that was started on this thread about a month or so ago?

    Thanks

    Nicccce! Did you go true to size on yours? I picked up a pair recently, too, but I can't decide if they're slightly too big.
