there's tons pics online already but here are some of my LS makeup on plaza when they were new
these have served me well, I recommend the deluxe as they are a bit thicker and take up more room if that's what you need.http://www.amazon.com/Tacco-Deluxe-Insole-Size-Mens/dp/B000JEI0TK/ref=sr_1_1?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1327771799&sr=1-1(note if you google around you may find a better price elsewhere)
what are you saying? you don't want to admit that you are wearing a $500 version of the boots your parent's milkman used to wear
great shirt - too bad it seems I am in between sizes for Gitman Vintage

I wear a size 8 in most Alden shoes and 41 in...
that's what we all say and then you realize that you don't want to wait 5-10 years to get a rare shell boot/shoe, and you justify it by saying that if you get the new pair now, you can enjoy them in the meantime with the knowledge that Alden prices will probably be more insane in 5-10 years. good luck resisting

umm someone is selling ravello chukkas for an insanely low price on ebay, better jump on them if they are your size http://www.ebay.com/itm/Alden-Mens-Chukka-Boot-Ravello-Shell-Cordovan-10-5D-/110813147425?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item19ccfa7121
having handled both brand in person, I don't think you can go wrong with any of the choices. If you tend to wear really slim fitting european cut suits, the Aldens would provide a nice contrast in form, but the Carminas would work as well. If your suits are fuller cut, the sleekness of the Carminas would look off in my opinion. I am a big Alden fan and despite the opinion of some members here, I really do think that depending on the last and style, they really can be worn...
though it's been said before, the best way to determine fit and comfort is to ensure that the ball of your foot is at the widest part of the shoes. some people may have short toes and some people may have longer toes but using that area as a reference point has always worked well for me. Also there is just a feel when you put on a pair of shoes if it feels slightly too large or slightly too tight. If you think it fits you well and is not causing any pain or slipping off...
