    I really like the TSM makeup. I have both #8 and black shell. The Leffot Naval boot is amazing, too. You really can't go wrong with a #8 shell boot. Just finding the one you want in stock is the issue.

    Your sizing estimate sounds about right. Although, seems as though I am the only person that is the same size in the 1-511 and the Barrie.

    I can confirm this Alden Defender is awesome (for shoes and belts) and it runs TTS.

    Yes... finding pairs in stocks seems to be a big challenge, the more I look around. Well i'll see how things go, and maybe i'll have to get myself a pair of boots for my birthday. Where I live, you can wear boots many month of the year, so it's justified.

    Thanks for the comments on sizing too. It can be tough to find last comparisons, especially between brands.

    I have worn shell in the rain for eons .. This is why I pay the extra upcharge for Shell. Simply dry them out completely .. Wipe, brush .. And done. I think because shell is so expensive .. People are naturally hesitant .. But honestly .. This leather is and was used for this exact purpose.

    I'm glad to hear this, I actually just got some this week and tried it on a pair of my shells. I'm just wearing them for the first time now after treating.

    Does the defender add to or detract from the shine of the shell at all?

    Where are you getting the Defender? Just tried Alden's site and did not see it.

    Howdy all, it has been a while since I have had time to catch up and post.

    I got these off the Bay a few weeks ago, they are my first non-shell Aldens. I think that they look pretty good. I have heard that the Cape Cod collections can not be re-soled by Alden. Is that the case? I believe that they are made in Maine as opposed to the Massachusetts factory. Anyways, enjoy and have a good weekend all!
