Fell in love with the Alden Indy brown chromexcel shortly after it was introduced last year. Searched and searched, but couldn't find one in stock in my size. If I was lucky I could be on a wait list for 3+ months. Then I e-mailed this place call Leffot down in the Village. They had plenty of chromexcels. I went in on a cold, rainy Sunday afternoon in March. I was the only one in the place and Steven and I talked for a good half hour about Aldens, customized shoes, leathers, shoe care, everything. I was certain I would be a 9.5 in a trubalance last based on everything I read, but Steven thought going a full size down (to a 9) was best for me and he was right. He was wearing some sweet suede chukkas. I almost went for those, but I walked out with what I had come for. It was a great experience.
