Recently moved to the South Shore of Boston.  Not that it makes a lick of difference, but it's kind of nice to know the factory less than an hour away.

My wife: You don't actually post pictures of your own shoes on there, do you?
Me (channeling Fletch): Me?  No, no--never, never.
My wife knows I read SF. She does not know that I have an account with the name of an East European city I have visited several times, nor does she know that I post under the avatar of a tender vittles free-basing fictional cat.

So I've decided that I want the Alden Unlined Loafers in Suede Snuff in a 10D.  Don't think I'm doing the ones tricky was selling in 10.5D because I don't want to run into a situation where I did with my Rancourts in which they stretched a lot.

 

So if anyone knows a sale or wants me to help them let them go let me know :)

Sorry to ask this guys, but I searched the thread and could only find the phone number for Kathy in DC.  Would someone mind sharing the email?  PM is fine as well.  Thanks so much in advance!

Just spent a futile 40 minutes with Kathy last night trying to find one pair in the entire store that fit me...so, I have her card right here in my coat pocket and the email listed is simply WashDC@AldenShoe.com

 

Hope you have better luck than I did :-(

I wish they had a "factory shop" and sold irregulars there, in person only.

That would be very cool.  You might become this thread's designated proxy!

Guess I MAY go to a 10D then in Van Last.

 

For the BB unlined #8 LHS, I get an almost perfect fit from a 10.5D.

 

My Barrie size is 10E and I fill that out completely.

 

So, I go down a width.

 

You would be wise to try both 10D and 10.5D and even a 10.5C if possible.

 

Speaking of which:

That price is hot, hot, hot and from the best shop around.  :nodding:

I would suspect that similar feelings are felt by many on this forum, including me.
