***The official Alden thread *** Share enthusiasm, reviews, sizing, advice, and photos. - Page 7502post #112516 of 1224166/29/15 at 6:22pmDo the 975s fit larger than other Barrie last shoes? Just received 975 and they are roomier in the heel vs a Dover in snuff & CXL. Granted the Dovers are unlined, but I thought that would be even more reason for the 975s to fit, if anything, tighter.post #112517 of 1224166/29/15 at 6:26pmpost #112518 of 1224166/29/15 at 6:27pmQuote:

The PATRONPRE 30% code seems to work on Aldens at kafka.co.uk.
They have a couple sizes of #8 longwings.
Code takes them down to 310gbp shipped to US.
#8 PTB are about 300gbp.
Note that you have to be a "patron" but I think all that means is that you sign up for an account.
Last time I ordered from Kafka they used Fedex. You should NOT owe any duty for US made goods (8.5% for shoes; 4 or 5% for welted footwear) but there's always a chance that something will get messed up and they'll still try to ding you. Fedex might also charge you a brokerage fee of around $25.
I ordered the unlined PTB from Kafka and a Barbour jacket (300gbp + 138gbp).
UPS just tried to deliver and collect $212 duty. I said "um, no" so the driver said to call and try to clear it up and he'd deliver later.
Called UPS and they were pretty much worthless. Said the package was $900 and described as "men's clothing".
They were absolutely no help trying to get it corrected. They said to contact shipper and try to get a corrected invoice.post #112522 of 1224166/29/15 at 7:37pmpost #112523 of 1224166/29/15 at 8:33pmQuote:
Usually shell models are roomier as the material doesn't stretch over the last as much as other leathers.post #112524 of 1224166/29/15 at 8:36pmQuote:Originally Posted by turkey_sandwich
Somehow J. Crew had a pair of size 9 #8 PCT boots on their website this AM. Out of sheer luck, I happened to see they were available. So... although I had NOT been planning to spend that kind of money on a pair of boots right now, I felt as though I could not pass them up... I've been scouring eBay and the marketplace here for months with no luck. As long as I keep them for 5 or more years, I'm OK with the expenditure, I suppose! Now to get to saving...
Nice! Love those boots and welcome to the club! You'll love them and will definitely get plenty of years out of them 👍post #112525 of 1224166/29/15 at 8:43pmpost #112526 of 1224166/29/15 at 9:43pm
Not my auction but a cigar LHS in size 8D popped up on the bay, very reasonable BIN price too. I had to seriously consider pulling the trigger as I think I can make and 8D work, my 7.5D whiskey LHS really only can be worn sockless or a thin sock liner.
