EDIT: According to an earlier post in this thread, the shoes are a US width E even though it is not listed.

They've got my size in the 403 Indy. I've been close to ordering because I've wanted an Indy and it's an excellent price, but I'm not 100% that I wouldn't prefer a different makeup, even if I end up paying full retail...

And yes, they are US E width.

I stopped by Alden DC today, and got to experience Kathy's hospitality again.  What a cool lady!





 




Took along the burnished tan calf boots...  (my first trip out in the Gustin Taupe Summer Linen Selvedge Denim jeans too)

We only need one more to complete the order, but more couldn't hurt. I'd like to get this order closed ASAP and off to production!



Feel free to PM me with questions/concerns, if you are committed then please include your name, plaza size, and best email in a PM to me.






I tried on a variety of Plaza sizes with Kathy's assistance, and there isn't a great size for me.  This is going to be a super-cool makeup, but sadly I'm out frown.gif

On a side note, I noticed they had several pairs of the classic build of the 405 Indy boot with the cotton duck/muslin lining in stock.  I hadn't see one before, but guessing it would be a good summer configuration...

 

I think they're actually on sale, but you'd want to touch base with Alden of DC.

Maybe it expired?  You definitely need to be logged in to use it.  I actually don't even need the code anymore to see the price I mentioned, but it is calling me a 'patron' now, maybe because I placed an order.

 

Given the complete disaster that is the currency market right now, the cost for those in the states has dropped considerably since I made the earlier post...

Has anyone tried these Need Supply x Alden PTBs? What are the differences besides the calf leather and commando sole? Thanks.

Thinking I have to sell my snuff unlined chukka boots...stupid of me to ignore all the sizing advice.

They're 11.5 E (so fit 11.5 D).

Shoot me a pm if you like...I'll get around to listing eventually. They've been worn twice to work.

I brought two pairs from them lately. Oregon Hill Indys and Color 8 PTBs.

While I have not tried the "robinson" PTB but I would not hesitant to order from NeedSupply Co, they offer free shipping and free returns. Go try it out. This particular make up is on the TB last which is rare from shoes.

Great looking LHS. The Ravello is such a nice LHS color with the contrasting strap. +1 for the khakis and argyles.

I am very glad that you got to go and see Kathy! They are fantastic!!! I am sorry about the Plaza Last, that is unusual that it doesn't work, but we all have different feet!

Wow Burzan, that is a great combination. I don't know if I have seen wine pants with Color 8, but that is just cool!

Kathy is fantastic, one of the best in the business. Glad you have a great experience there, and I'm sorry the plaza sizing didn't work out for you. It can be a tough fit, I find the non-shell plaza to be somewhat problematic for me as well.

Got these for a steal on eBay. Need a little rehab, but for 35+ 9.99 shipping can't be beat! I'll post before and after pics once I give them a little TLC
