I'm a TTS 10D. The AE Dundee is in size 10D and the Alden Chukka is 9.5D. The Alden feels slightly wider, but only slightly so.

how's the finish quality on yours? mine looked like someone applied dye with a paint brush all over the front end, along with a fairly hefty scratch on the toebox.. waiting for RL to get another pair in now
Very good. Looks like the edge dressing streaked to the bottom of the sole. With wear, that will not matter. Nothing really stood out to me out of the box. There are some small nicks at the back of the heel, but that may have been me sitting at this office chair and resting my heels/missing.
A little bit of polish (like AE applies) but that doesn't bother me. As I wear my shoes that comes out with brushing and a microfiber cloth.
Hope you get a nice return pair.
You were able to get an exchange? or you bought another pair in the same size?
Anybody know if RL B&M stores will do a straight exchange for size without a receipt? Forgive me for asking as I'm in Canada and there are no RL stores here.
