^I'm curious, do you not like them? Are you looking at a different type of shoe or a boot? I don't know....there are few Alden's I would trade for a pair of WT Marlow's. Maybe something in ravello or #4 on the Plaza last. I have a pair of ravello WT boots and I still prefer Lindricks to them. Personally, I feel the cognac shell and the shape of the last of the WT (compared to Alden's Barrie) is pretty hard to beat.
How did I miss this thread? I lol'd and even guffawed once, maybe twice.
For me, it's safety first so I only ride with an armored jacket. Both my jackets are by Rev'it. I wouldn't never wear either casually because they are heavy and have armor. I do, however, want to get a casual jacket like a Schott Perfecto or Cafe. If you don't ride but want to wear a mc style jacket (Perfecto, cafe, etc.), wear what you want. It's a jacket like any other jacket. Plenty of guys walk around in A1 bombers and varsity jackets. Pretty sure they weren't...
Will the sizing on the boots be whole sizes only like the sneakers?
I'm still waiting for a wallet. Last update was it arrived in the US on the 11th. I'm hoping it shows up today or tomorrow.

We have a winner.
Seriously. I'd really like B14, though.
Return them so they can take a closer look. That looks pretty bad but honestly Alden isn't the best company when it comes to finishing. From wide welts, broken, missed or bunched stitches, etc., we've seen it all and unless their quality control people are blind, they don't consider them seconds. That maybe fine for a typical "work boot" but to me, that's not ok for a "work boot" that costs almost $600.
