    Can someone help me ID these? I purchased them off the bay, and am not sure what they actually are. I am considering getting them resoled, as there is some wear on the heels which makes them feel funny as they aren't worn like I was walking in them (lol).

    At any rate, was hoping that someone could let me know what they actually are. Appreciate the help in advance.

    They look like they're on the Modified last, with kidskin leather. Just a guess though.

    Shasta, which beefrolls did you order? Sherman brothers just got
    me a pair of H410s in about a week.


    Yes, H410

    It wasn't an order, it's a repair I'm waiting on. Wore them 3 times and the sole separated from the upper.

    Natty Longwing:

    [​IMG]


    Tom,
    - Comparing this with the Natty CXL Longwings form Epaulet, it looks like their version has a more brownish red tint to it while yours has a more yellowish-tan cast. Would you say the actual batch you will have at the trunk show is more the former or the latter?

    - Is the NST Barrie or Trubalance last?

    - What time does the trunk show at LSBH start?

    I agree...I still haven't warmed to CLX in "natty"....to me it looks wan, bland...its pallid complexion sorta reminds me of cream soda which I hate and thus leaves me feeling slightly barfy...

    I am curious to see how it ages but for now I am happily out of the "natty" game...much to my wallet's delight.

    ^ My black shell full wing bals look exactly like that. Dab some black polish into the broguing with a Q-tip and shine if it bothers you.

    Please help me decide...

    I'm having a hard time deciding between cigar or ravello longwings. I'll mostly be wearing them with jeans and slacks occasionally. Any insight is greatly appreciated, Thanks

    ^Personal preference... I'd go for Ravello first before Cigar though.

    Yeah, wax or shoe cream would never cover up that huge defect. [​IMG]

    That looks like dried polish/wax to me. Brush your shoes for 10 minutes each and see what happens.

    Someone please teach me how to use my camera!

    The true color of this run is actually more on the brownish side.

    Photo taken with my iPhone... (more true than the picture taken with my $1800 camera!)
