Don't know if you are referring to me but I am not sizing up on the boot, merely TTS. Trubalance is similar for me. I have worn 11.5d and 12d and prefer the 12d because i wear them with heavy, thick socks.

These are actually just a cheap pair of Levis. 511's I believe. They are lightweight easier to work in for me at the office on casual days, I save the raw heavyweight stuff for days when I am not having to work on people all day, but it does add the the fades :)

Agreed, great boots. As soon as I shipped them back, I found the TSM irregular list I signed up and on that 1st list was a 9.5D, i couldn't dial fast enough but I learned real quick, there are much faster dialers on this thread than me. I would definitely pick this boot up if I had another chance.

Inn8 enjoy the boots!

I never liked black leather shoes until I saw the black shell tankers. Such beautiful shoes. One day, hopefully soon, I'll own one or seven pairs

If you mean size up in barrie from shoe to boot, my trubalance boots are same as barrie shoe size. Hope that helps.

Those look GREAT. I was very close to picking up a pair from J. Gilbert several months ago. But I already have a short wing reverse chamois boot on order from Leffot and I just want to make sure the style works for me.

Gents,

Good evening. So far it looks like everybody has had a great Alden week. Solid showings from many of you.

 

Last year was a big year for me in terms of Alden purchases. I definitely went overboard, acquired about 6 or 7 pair including #2 LWB, cigar cap toe and medallion toe boots, Ravello chukkas, #8 boots, and some Natty CXL options. I also pre-ordered a pair of Ravello wingtip boots from Alden Madison that I am expecting in the next month or two. As a result, I promised myself that I would take it very easy in 2015 regarding new Alden purchases. Not go crazy. Pace myself. Be reasonable.

 

And then this happened today:

Guess I have no choice but to wear the heck out of them.

Dave

Dave, just give up or stop following this thread. Please see the FAQ... ;-) Both are beautiful and I can see why you broke down.

Buz, looking relaxed in your glove-like Unlined Suede Chukkas. I have found that particular model harder for me to fit and still haven't decided what size I like the best.

Nice combination Inn8, not sure how you get your feet through those tiny leg holes. You must use a funnel or something to get into those... ;-) Love the Suede Boots though.

LoanShark, those are beautiful Tassels. The BB is the best Tassel. Enjoy them in the best of health. P.S. I can not think of a better Alden model for someone named LoanShark... ;-)

On a related note, I need to change size for Barrie lasted boots; need 1/2 size up due to snugness. I have several pairs of barely worn (at most 3 times) barrie boots in 6E that I need to let go, wanted to see if there are any interested parties here before they go up on market place/ebay. Please shoot me a PM if interested.
 
  • Ravello wingtip boot, double leather sole. From TheShoeMart
  • Color 8 wingtip boot, commando sole. From Alden of Carmel
  • Chocolate suede NST boot, commando sole. From LeatherSole
  • Snuff suede NST boot, WaterLok sole. From Unipair
  • Color 8 perf captoe boot (Naval boot), double leather sole. From Leffot
  • Brown cxl captoe boot, commando sole. From Alden NY
