Here is a pic of my very first Aldens. I got them at an European dealer. And they got me hooked on Alden 13+ years ago...


Edit: The sun appeared, so here is a better, additional picture:

Thank you for sharing! This is such a beautiful makeup, and it looks like they've aged very well. Like I said before, it'd be nice to see more of these models around, but much like the v-tip, it's a little less common amongst Alden's models.

Sloat Plain Toe Natural CXL




Think this will be the next boot I get.

I have the Barrie-lasted version of this Natty CXL PT Boot and I love it. Natty CXL patina's nicely and handles all weather with ease. I also think it's a very smart looking boot to go with khakis, chinos, jeans. Since the leather is not quite as dark as brown CXL, it shows some wrinkles but the regular "pull-up" effect is not as pronounced as in my brown CXL shoes/boots. Mine was a seconds purchase and came on a double waterlock sole instead of the cork sole.

Hey guys, do any of you have both Alden's made for Brooks Brother's and normal Alden's.  Does anyone know how to convert the size of a brooks brother's 8D on the Barrie last to a typical Alden shoe on the Barrie last?  Trying to figure out my size.  Thanks in advance for any help.

Assuming you are able to verify that the BB is truly on barrie (since it's not always listed on BB website), I'd take it the same size as 'regular' Alden barrie offerings.

I would read the reviews. Sometimes people give sizing advice and often it is someone familiar with Aldens. Contacting their customer service also can't hurt.

Thanks for the advice... now I'm reading from another reviewer that it is the Snap last.  I better just contact BB/Alden customer service.

As far as I know, BB has at least 1 last from Alden that is exclusive to their makeups.

I believe it's called the M58 last. Similar to Barrie, just slightly narrower.

Just received my Leffot Tankers from the May '15 order. Sad to say it's the same dark color 8 as the Tankers (! edit: sorry meant Leffot Naval). What's really odd about this pair is that the edging is more red than antique.

 

This dark shade is really putting me off to color 8 vendor make ups.

Did you receive tracking info from Leffot?  I paid my balance last Friday, but didn't receive anything about shipping confirmation.  Any photos you can share?  Too bad that it's the dark color 8 shade, but i'm curious how the edging looks now

Color 8 has been quite dark as of late. It lightens up with time, don't fret.

Very true, nothing that some wear & UV rays can't fix

I have to preface by saying I am extremely picky. So take everything I say with a ton of salt.

Yes, paid the balance, received my tracking on Fri, and the boots arrived today. Here are a couple of photos that compares the edging. Maybe the edging will lighten from wear.

I guess... I've been wearing my Navals constantly just to wear them out, but to no avail. For someone that dislikes dark shoes, the darker shade of color 8 is a big let down. It's more or less a black shoe to me.

Thanks for posting the pics!  Those are quite dark!  I haven't received any of the darker color 8, so i'll see how it looks in person (need to check about shipping first).  Is this just the new color from Alden?  It's interesting how color 8 and cigar are both much darker than years past.
