    Just wondering when sending in shoes for resoling, if Alden can change the welt on the shoes. (i.e. originally close heel welt ----> let's say, 360 storm welt)

    We wouldnt have to pay 923.00 or whatever the exchange rate is if a US store made us up some.

    Put me down as #4 for a shortwing version as well. Tom? [​IMG]

    Mark me down for #5. I'd love this in a shortwing.

    Wasn't there somebody here who stripped the edge dressing from a pair if color #8 and made it look like these?

    Yeah, but I was hoping to get the Sand Suede version in a Barrie last. Leffot only has the Snuff Suede.

    Ok, #8 shortwing, Barrie last with antiqued edgetrim. I'll put the order in. [​IMG]

    Check with Bryan at LSBH concerning longwings in tan suede, he may have some in stock.

    That's funny. The first thing I thought when I saw them was "finally someone selling a longwing on something besides the Barrie".

    Winn Perry has them in Sand on Barrie last with a double waterlock sole. I got a very similar pair from Leathersole last year, except they had double oak-tanned soles. I think the waterlock would be more comfortable, and a little less formal for this more casual shoe.

    The Brooks Brothers Black Fleece cordovan longwing was on the Grant, which looked great.

    Unfortunately I have tiny feet and they don't offer most Black Fleece in sizes below 8D. I'm a 7C or 7B in the Barrie last so the BBBF shoes won't work for me. Thanks for the tip though.
