    Has anyone ever seen any natural chromexcel on the irregular's list? I'm hoping for either the natural Chromexcel PTB or indy shoe.

    thanks

    Did you pick up the brown wingtips? Would have preferred them, but as my gf says "You don't have any black boots."

    Help me shoe gurus

    How are the Alden of Carmel Four Eyelet Oxfords,how does sizing run on the plaza last, and what exactly is a "waterloc" sole? A double-oiled sole? Is it the same as a flex welt?

    I was advised to half size up from my Trubalance size for the Leydon and Plaza lasts.

    how does sizing run on the plaza last

    From the Alden of Carmel site:

    The most popular Alden lasts, and their relative sizes compared to usual U.S. shoe sizes are:

    Leydon last - fits approximately like a standard US size
    Plaza last - slightly longer than regular U.S. size
    Aberdeen last - slightly longer than regular U.S. size
    Van last - 1/4 to 1/2 size larger than regular U.S. size
    Barrie last - about 1/2 size larger than regular U.S. size (U.S. size 10 = Barrie last size 9 1/2)
    Trubalance last - about 1/2 size larger than regular U.S. size (U.S. size 10 = Trubalance size 9 1/2)
    Modified last - at least 1/2 size larger than regular U.S. size (U.S. size 10 = Modified last size 9 1/2)
