Just out of morbid curiosity, what styles (other than the natty's and navy shortwings) were available in the Alden/Carmina seconds thread?
StyleForum does that automatically.
This has made all my Marlows comfortable right out of the box. I take shoes with really stiff soles and give them a good "pre-flexing" before wearing regularly. Grab the toe in one hand and the heel in the other with the sole up and basically bend the shoe to a 90 degree angle a few times. Don't worry, you won't ruin the shoe even though it feels like you shouldn't bend it that much. For shoes that are too stiff to bend in your hands, stand the shoe vertically with the toe...
Maiden voyage for my brown crust shortwing bluchers with the dainite sole. Fantastic shoes for the price! Remember to size way down on the Rui. I'm a 10D Alden Barrie but went with a 9 Rui. The fits are similar.

Doing a little closet cleaning. I bought these new from J. Crew and only wore them twice. They come in the original box just as I got them from J. Crew with flannel bags and tissue. There were no plastic bags. The pictures are a pretty accurate representation of the shoes. There are really no condition issues, but I will point out there are some of the typical Alden over-dye "blotches" at the base of the tongues. I tried my best to capture them in the one photo. ...

I received that scam email that appeared to be from Meermin. Since I had just ordered a couple pairs, it did have me thinking something might have gone wrong with the order. I sent them a PM to make sure they were aware of it. Here's their response for everyone's benefit... Thanks for your message. This email you received is not from Meermin, is not legitimate. Our technical team managed to block that fraud site. Said that please never provide a credit card detail...
