Spot on, I'm a true size 10 and I ordered a 42. Size down one for sure.

I've been wearing the boots for the last few days, will give a full review at the end of the week with a more informed appraisal.

Right now though, I can say that they are a solid pair of boots for the price. I give em the thumbs up

They are dark.

there is no doubt, but now that I've looked at them in the sun, they do look far more brown than black.

I'm rocking them tomorrow with dark jeans and a sportcoat.

Got mine today.  I am wearing them right now and I have to say that they are extremely comfortable.  I will be purchasing a second pair.

MAybe its the light, but mine have a lot more antiquing

Nope, it's not just the light - not much antiquing on these really, but I figure for $150 I got these at a bargain. They'll hopefully pick up some more color after some wear and polish.

Day one and I like them alot.  As a guy who usually wore blundstones or stiff Vibram soled hikers I really like  them.  Hopefully this doesnt push me into wanting cordovan boots.

I am an Allen-Edmonds 10D. So should I order a 10, or should I get one size down?

Replying to my own post. Called the local Aldo, they don't have them yet, was at a store near them, stopped in anyway, lucked out, the DSM was there, he had a pair in his car. Brought them in, they were a 42. Tried them on, every sales rep in the store, all women, were watching me. They fit perfectly. The women loved them, though I realize it is their job to do so (then again, they were the best looking shoes in the store). Ordered them on the spot, they gave me the on-line discount + free shipping to my house. This was a Sunday, I got them Tuesday. It came to about $155 since I had to pay sales tax.

The DSM said the Mr. B's are now his favorite shoe in the Aldo line. At the time, he was wearing a pair of Mr. B's black Oxfords that looked pretty good also.

Anyway, I wear an AE 10D, I ordered a 42, which the DSM said was more like a 9, so these boots definitely run large.

That's interesting. I wear a size 9 in AE strands (a little narrow, but right length wise), and I also got a 42 in the boots. Both outsoles measure at about the same, roughly 12".

Still really happy with mine btw guys, I don't think you'll find a better deal for the price. Just forget it's Aldo, and give them a shot

I'll be honest, I wear a 10d in AE as well, and my 42s are a bit short. They are improving with wear and slightly too big shoe trees, but still a bit short.
