Langstons are on W2298 last. Lots of info in this thread.
I used TrueCar a couple year ago when I helped my mother-in-law buy a new Accord. It was amazingly painless, at least the dealership part. MIL was the usual PITA. Found the TrueCar price, wife emailed the dealership to verify car in stock and set up an appt. We went in with MIL a week later. No hassles.Dude at work tried to use TrueCar a little over year ago on a Camry Hybrid. He had all kinds of hassles but then he's kind of an idiot.I bought an Avalon at that same Toyota...
Tricker's prints the last on the shoe under the sock liner. You have to remove it to see.
In general Tricker's uses high quality materials.I think I've read that they both use Stead Tannery for their suede but I'd be somewhat surprised if that was the only source; especially for Tricker's since they offer so many colors and finishes. Alden seems to be more uniform in their suede offerings.Most of my suede Tricker's have the Rapello finish. I think it's just a scotchguard type finish.

I agree regarding the 2298/4497 not being a difference of 1/2 size. But depending upon one's feet there's enough difference that going up 1/2 size will work for some.
Got them from Super Denim a little over a year ago. 4444 last on double leather.I've got 2298 in same size and also 1/2 size up from 4497.The 2298 in same size are snugger than 4497 and I wouldn't wear thick socks with them.Or if you have a high instep, you might be better off with the bigger 2298.
Teak Cordovan.
And the cordovan Alden Indy's slipped through the cracks too. https://www.jcrew.com/browse/single_product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524441854872&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302052242&nav_type=PRMNAV&bmUID=kK30uOD&srcCode=AFFI00001&siteId=J84DHJLQkR4-nyujiavNk1XVG4zRJ%2FUZKQ
I think when you see a bunch of firsts of the same shoe in several sizes it's a custom order that got cancelled by the retailer for some reason or other. I doubt you're going to find those anywhere else.The factory shop offers returns and takes off VAT for US customers. I'm not sure what added benefit you'd get from a retailer over the factory shop.
