The Aberdeen is one of Alden's most aesthetically pleasing IMHO...

 

Maybe some of the other gents who have been in the Alden game longer than me can post some comparison pics...

 

If not, I will try to soon for you my friend.

 

 

Thanks!  They fit TTS according to what I've read - is that right?  I wear a 9.5D in AE Park Aves and a 9D in the Barrie last.  I'm not into my LS choco tankers and am thinking of getting rid of them.  Since I'm way down the list on the DC ravello/cigar cap toe orders I've been oogling other options for the time being.  Really like the suede captoe from Shoes and Shirts that was posted a month or more ago - http://www.shoesandshirts.nl/shoes/shoes/navy-boot_1935.html.  Trying to convince myself not to buy them!

Aberdeen, Barrie, Barrie



Not ideal because it isn't top down, but you can see some difference, I hope!

"Technically" they fit TTS...

 

Aberdeen is definitely a longer last, perhaps Alden's longest.

 

There is NO substitute for trying before buying in regard to sizing...

Ok, the size 8s were just too tight across the base of my toes.

 

Here's a few pictures showing where my toe is and where the ball of my foot is. I am thinking these might be the proper fit, but I can't really tell, they still just appear too big.

 

Any advice is greatly appreciated. They either will stay or go back by monday.

LeatherSoul was going to be my suggestion. They have a pre-order that is supposedly still in the works, but it's going on 2.5 years now so who knows. The only saving grace that I can think of is that enough people have probably dropped out of it by now that there may be a few extra sizes available when/if they do ever come in.

 

Terrific Indy Boots! I can't wait to get mine out and in the wild! :-D

Nice custom work on this pair

 

Looks spiffy, but I don't think I could do that to a pair of mine... But still very cool! Is that Shell?

Those are beautiful boots my friend, but that is an awkward pose and you should really consider getting the edge on your jeans redone or double rolling them.

Going to brush out the bloom on these black shell chukkas.  The black and orangeish is Halloween-like and the laces are all akimbo...

 

Nice Black Chukkas my friend. I did orange laces on my Black LWBs for Halloween last year... ;-)

Interesting, I much prefer the Aberdeen NST. You get more toe stitch going on, more bang for the buck! ;-)

TO, what's that black boot on the right?  Black shell with commando?  It looks really cool (even though its siblings are rare shell!).
