Hey DV

 

Those are AF27, part of the Plaza Last series of Alden Fan shoes.  The date on the back of this photo is April, 2000:

 


I had a pair of those too.  : - )

Amazing group shot DV!  The cigar's are a great olive tone.

I think it's a matter of how your foot is made up.  Alot of people claim it's more snug, some people claim it fits the same way.  I'd be curious to know if this is in the toe box, heel, etc.?

Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge.

It has been my experience that Alden will recraft shoes even if they have been resoled elsewhere. Be advised, at $165.00 your shoes will not be as good as new, but Alden can do more than your local cobbler--e.g. recork the midsole, replace the welt, put the shoe on the original size last for resole.

I have three pair that have been back at least twice, and all of them had been resoled elsewhere between recrafts at Alden.

Kahuna - Who are your #8 NST's coming from? I just bought a pair of #8 Tankers with black welt and edging / commando soles from Alden SF. I'm on a waitlist for a pair with antique welt & edging - picked these up for the interim.

Does Unionmade offer lists or deposits on future orders?

I do know they typically do the Shell LHS on the Van without lining and Suede LHS on the Van with lining.

Example of a Copley Loafer.

Thanks Mike--

OK definitely NOT my BB LHSs. Mine must be on Van. Don't much care for the Copley in navy suede...

Your sage knowledge is appreciated...

I have the J. Crew PCT boot as well as a few other boots on the Barrie. I fall into this same category (hope you're doing well, sftg). The J. Crew fit just like my other Barrie boots.

That is a great pair to hold over with..i ordered from Context...antique edging and commando was able to order a 12.5..I got the jcrew indy #8 during the sale to hold me over but have not worn them yet.

Deciding between keeping the jcrew cap toe #8 or the Indy

We'll take the gnome on his steps and his boots on tour and send pics of them until he gets home.

Problem solved - KEEP BOTH!

csmitty, I'll unload the first pair when the special order arrives from Context. Just don't know how long that will be. Hence the interim pair.
