    +1. Great looking boots.

    And Uncle, as to your Ravello gunboats, you've done it again.

    tifosi, I tried the hibernation method. It required hibernating from SF as well. It works for a while. But then you get curious, want to see what's going on, who's offering what special make up...and soon your back, full throttle!

    Good point. I have done quite a bit of ordering and buying the past couple months. Purchases that probably should have been spread out till almost next year, so. Once the shoes/boots start shipping I guess I'll be happy and I won't need this feeling of instant gratification (which I love) of buying stock items. In the coming months up until early next year I will have 2 shell Alden boots, 1 shell LWB and 2 shell Allen Edmonds custom shell orders trickling in. Sheesh when I write it all down...

    Barrie-lasted shoes in 8D could not fit me any better.
    As for the AE 1-last, I've got a sub-optimal fit on the 8.5D cordovan Leeds ... if it wasn't already too late to exchange, I would have gone for an 8E or even perhaps 8EE.

    Speaking of non-shell, any love out there for the Ranger Mocc in reverse chamois? I pulled this one out today because I've been thinking about getting another make up of the Ranger (shell!)

    Hmmmm, yea...I think I probably have a little room in the 8D barrie (but not enough to warrant a narrower size) so the cordovan Leeds still fit me very nicely in a D width.

    J Gilbert was running a pre-order for these a few months ago. They may still have some sizes available? I think delivery time is roughly October.

    I d
    Lady jeans.  Ouch.  Spoken like a man unable to fit into them.  (As I would not be able to even if my gigantic testosterone levels fell to the basement.)
    [/quote. I don't fit into a leotard either. Just not a fan of the femme looks that are in vogue
