    It's a beautiful day here in San Francisco so I thought I'd take my Aldens up to the roof for a photo session. Here's a taster.

    Which last is this PTB boot with commando sole? Trubalance? Did you get them from AoC or somewhere else? I think this will be my next Alden but currently only have Barrie lasts in my rotation so not sure of the fit of the Trubalance.

    Yes, those are AF53's from A of C.
    Trubalance last.

    I just got these and they are shaping up to be favorites.

    For me, Trubalance and Barrie fit the same. I comfortably wear 9E in both. There is some controversy about the fit of these lasts but I believe that for most people there is not enough difference to need a different size. Good luck!

    So I am thinking of picking up a pair of Cigar Shell cordos.
    It is between LW or the PTB.

    Currently I already own 2 wingtips and 1 LW in other leathers.

    Does anyone have real life photos of the Vegano Tan Calf leather? About to purchase, but would like to see "real life" photos first.

    I'd go PTB.

    Hrm, don't know if I missed this but what are the differences between the following:

    JC Indy from Leffot
    LeatherSoul Indy
    ShoeMart 40566C
    JGilbert Indy

    All in cigar cordovan - I'm not at all up on multiple special editions/etc.


    JC Indy from Leffot - commando sole, blind eyelets w/speed hooks
    LeatherSoul Indy - double leather sole
    ShoeMart 40566C - no speed hooks, 360 storm welt, commando sole
    JGilbert Indy - commando sole

    Couldn't be happier. Thanks to Bryan @ LS Beverly Hills.

    Now if I could only have a pair of those Crosspost, black pebble grain gunboats that Gnatty8 posted I'd be content !

    If the Barrie last is consistently a 1/2 size large, then why not just relabel all the sizes so they are TTS? That is, change the 10 Barrie to a 10.5. etc.

    Scotch Grain longwing in color #8 cordovan on the Barrie last from Tassels Hong Kong. From March, so they're probably out, but what a sweet, sweet shoe.

    That's just crazy talk.
    Doing that would probably eliminate 20% of the posts in this thread.
