I don't post pic's much, but I have had a really good week. I've purchased and sold 2 pairs of 975's because I didn't quite like how they looked on my feet. Well I picked these up from a fellow forum member and they fit like a glove. Went up 1/2 size and down to a B width. Perfect fit. Much thanks to @sevenfoldtieguy.




All the recent talk about cigar Captoes prompted me to call Kathy and see if I could get on the list. Knowing that I'm a popular size, I knew I would be at the end of a long line. Turns out that I was already on the list, number one in my size. Must have got on the list when I ordered my ravello Captoes. And then to cap things off, she had a pair of these laying around in my size.....




A flawless pair of whiskey PTB's. To quote ice cube, it was a good day.

Nice job Shawn! Enjoy your new Aldens. I am glad that you have discovered your B width. You can hop on orders with me! :-)

I would take ALL Modified last boots from Anatomica. My favorite last and it's insane.

How do you size modified to Barrie...from what I read says stay same? I think modified would work great for me as I have wide forefoot and narrow heel.

Based on sizing advice from Charles from Anatomica Paris and my research, I sized same as Barrie and could not ask for better fit. I swear, nothing like Modified last is out there IMO.


Good luck.

Awesome, would love to stumble onto a pair of whiskey PTB's. Haven't had much luck tracking down a pair.

@mdubs Just curious: what was your main hobby before you got into Aldens? Whatever community was associated with that must really be hurting...haha

Those are...beautiful. Wow. 

I'm also #1 on the list for the cigar captoes. When I called a month or two ago, Kathy told me they'd be due in February. Do you have any updates?

They got pushed back a month or two. We initially thought they went into production on October 6th and that did not actually happen. Also, the factory has been suffering by the heavy winter this year and have been closed more days than normal due to snow, etc.

Ha! I didn't really participate in any forums or anything before this.

I have no idea where I am on that list. I was #3-4 a run or two ago. A phone call might be in order but I always fear for my wallet when I pick up the phone..
