I am the culprit. I wear 11.5-12 in Barrie depending on the welt. I recently had to put my 11.5D JCrew PCT on the classifieds becuase they were too small in the toe box compared to the same last in other worm welted boots. I saw a classified for this leffot makeup and the guy said he felt this one fits more TTS (possibly like the J Crew one), so I ordered the 12.

If they don't fit well, I can give you dibs if you want.

Meanwhile, the chamois tanker is getting very little love. Black shell gets little love here, but I imagine there will be a run for it Monday.

Amen to that.  I was bummed about missing out on several pre-orders and still being new to the Alden game lost hope.  But here I am only a few months later with two of my wants.

 

Wearing one of them today in the rare but needed SoCal rain.

ime, m75 fits larger than the plaza. so much so i sized down 1/2 sizes

 

Beautiful Boots, congrats on picking those up bud! Great find! Amazing how many folk buy Aldens and never wear them... Yes, I do take my sweet time sometimes, but I do have the intention of wearing all of them. I bought my Whiskey Chukka from a guy who sat on them for about a decade...

I hope everyone got the model they wanted today.  I'm waiting on Chamois in a CT boot  I've got the AOM version of the tanker in #8, and the  McCoppin Tanker in Natural CXL.  Congrats to all!

I like the chamois tanker - a lot. I was even tempted. But, $620 is ridiculous for a chamois anything. It's best as a utility leather and only $145 difference between that and the shell tankers…doesn't make a lot of sense to me...

Haberdash has another 25% off all footwear (including Alden) with code BESTFOOTFORWARD

Not much available but hope it helps someone.

Can anyone weight in on the 'welt affecting size' situation? From owners of regular indy boot and color 8 leffot tanker? Size discrepancies?

I wear the same size in both. (Though the indy is TB and the tanker is barrie, most go same size on those 2)

I wear a 7.5D in Trubalance and a snug 7.5D in Barrie Shoes. I did notice the Tanker was quite tight in 7.5D (not sure it is due to the welt, some people say Barrie boots fit tighter than Barrie shoes though), I ended up selling and going to and 8D which feels much better. 7.5E might have worked as well but did not get a chance to try it

I'm a 9.5 on both TB and Barrie, although a C width on my Indy and a regular D on my wingtip boot. The wingtip had a split reverse welt, but I can't imagine it being that different for the flat welt on the tanker. I went with my normal Barrie size today.

I do not know how a Welt could impact sizing honest. The shoes are made over forms that essentially form the shape of the shoe and correspondingly determine the size that the shoe comes out. I don't see how a flat versus a split reverse welt could possibly impact sizing unless a mistake is made welting...

I've never heard this, over many years of being into Aldens, until it was mentioned on this thread. I think there's more pair to pair fit varience with Alden than could ever possibly be attributed to the welt. I've literally never heard of this with any other brand, and I've never once had a shoemaker suggest this could be a possibility.
