    whiskey lw came today. color is great, though the left shoe is almost a 2-tone color. I couldn't get the iphone camera to capture it fully, but you can kind of see it here.

    If you would have asked me to guess the color I would have thought ravello.

    Arrow, I have almost pulled the trigger on those six eyelet cigar chukka boots from Shoe Mart like a dozen times, but always wished I could see a real life pic. From the looks of yours, it might be next on my list!

    Do you have any fit pics?

    (Wonderful collection btw)

    Alden x JCrew in #8. Two days of wear on them so far. Very comfortable, as I think I've zeroed in on my Barrie sizing. I also realized that this is essentially the Leather Soul 'Jumper' boot, except on the Barrie (instead of the Trubalance) and with eyelets/speed hooks (instead of all eyelets). [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Mr. Moo, are those Barrie boots the same size as the Trubalance ones? How would you say the two differ and what do you think of the quality of the J.Crews? Reason I'm asking is I have a pair of Jumpers and I just ordered the J.Crew cordo boots as well.
