I don't have much on my want list, but...whiskey cordovan loafers are at the top. You all wear them well. I need to zero in on my van last sizing.

Plaza semi brogue in 8 and/or black
Harrison cigar Dover
Shell plaza nst - boot, shoe, chukka, whatever
Any whiskey bootpost #120738 of 12241612/4/15 at 5:58pmQuote:
Whiskey cordovan LHS
Color 8 wingtip boot, antique edge, commando, plaza (J Gilbert) or grant(B&M) last
Cigar balmoral semi-brogue
Green suede LHS - not sure this is even made.
Navy CXL wingtip boot-B&M model
Whiskey cordovan loafer if LHS is unavailable😄
If unable to find the cigar balmoral, an AE strand brown cordovan may have to fill in.
That Leffot Norman Vilalta green pebble grain boot keeps calling to me. Glad I don't live in NY anymore sometimes!
I guess there is more on there then I thought😉post #120739 of 12241612/4/15 at 6:35pmpost #120740 of 12241612/4/15 at 6:41pmpost #120741 of 12241612/4/15 at 6:43pmpost #120742 of 12241612/4/15 at 6:48pmpost #120743 of 12241612/4/15 at 8:19pmQuote:Originally Posted by Bbombers85
Per my records, Leffot offered the tankers 5/15/15 and the reverse chamois wingtip boot 5/18/15. Considering the tankers are tougher to produce due to their handsewn nature, I'm hoping the chamois WTB aren't far behind!
Also, I (and a few others) put a deposit for Contex tankers in March. Hopefully those come in soon too.
Wound't mind a slight stagger between to too for the wallet's sake.Quote:
While not entirely the same conversation it's similar enough......I'm dying waiting for Yenni's reverse chamois WT boots. She said hers are not expected until late winter 2016.
I hope yours arrive sooner than thatpost #120744 of 12241612/4/15 at 8:53pmQuote:

And many many morepost #120745 of 12241612/4/15 at 9:10pmSeeing if someone could help me with a question, I'm pretty new to Alden recently picked up the Alden 974's in a 9.5, I wear between 8.5 and 9.5 depending on brand. When I push my toes as far as I can into the toe box there is about .5 to .75 inches between my heel and the shoe and looks slightly longer than my other shoes. So here's my question, is the model a little more elongated than let's say a blucher or is the sizing not correct?

Alden uses a variety of lasts, which not surprisingly fit differently. It is common to have to adjust length and sometimes width to get a good fit. I could be wrong, but I think it is very rare for people to increase length.
It is common for people to go down half a size, however. Your shoe is made on the Tremont last, which by consensus fits long. So try a half size smaller.post #120747 of 12241612/5/15 at 5:15ampost #120748 of 12241612/5/15 at 5:17ampost #120749 of 12241612/5/15 at 5:57ampost #120750 of 12241612/5/15 at 5:58am
