    cheers Joachim


    Thanks, but not mine. I was just pointing them out since I'd never seen that particular Alden combo before. They're somewhat tempting to me but not at the euro sourced price.

    Hello all,

    I purchased my first first pair of Aldens (captoe boot #8) about a month ago and am loving them. I am thinking about buying a shoe and am wondering if the shoes have a slightly different fit than the boots even if they are the same last. For instance would a pair of cordovan longwings on the barrie fit exactly like my boots?

    thanks

    They should. Although my pebble grain cap toe boots from Winn Perry, on Barrie last, fit a bit more snug width wise than my other shoes/boots that are also on the Barrie last.

    Sans the Winn Perry's, all of my other Barrie last shoes/boots fit the same.

    With a string of raw weather this week, I get to pull the moleskins out one last time before hanging them up for the season...

    Okay, now you're pissing me off. In addition to bloody cordovan Aldens, now you're making me yearn for several pairs of those moleskin pants. Are those wheat colored ones also from epaulet?

    On to other matters, FYI to the ravello lovers, shoe mart just got a few pairs of the wing tip boots. Not too many sizes, but at least mine was in there.[​IMG]

    Yes, these are from Epaulet as well.

    Whiskey LWB in pretty much every size available on shoemart now for those interested. Ordered the ravello wingtip boots. Surprised both of those have lasted on the site for so long. Usually rare colors/styles like those seem to vanish in hours on leathersoul.

    Really digging the pants/socks/shoes/
    Was going to order some of the moleskin pants but decided to wait until fall. Looks like I NEED some shoes like that though.
