Someone said that there's a way to search the New York Alden Store inventory online.  For the life of me I can't find this, could someone post a link?

Gents, can anyone please inform me about the 379X last?  To what last would it equate to (TruBalance/Barrie/etc.)?

 

to put it into context: The Bureau has an Alden Snuff Suede Blucher Boot available, and their description includes the following:

 

"This boot is made on the 379X last which is an old WWII military boot last."

http://www.thebureaubelfast.com/shop/product/1875/alden-snuff-suede-blucher-boot/

 

the boot is nice, but I am unfamiliar with the 379X last, so I'm wondering how they'll fit -

Those are pretty sharp, way better looking than the 404. What was the total cost in USD?
Thx

$647.09 (409 British Pounds) - more expensive than the 404's, no doubt, but I like them


one thing that I've learned here (and maybe you'll agree) is that, if you really like a certain pair of Aldens, you have to not wait or think about it, you have to buy them immediately, because who knows when you'll get the opportunity again smile.gif

 

(edit: just to reinforce the statement above, I think I grabbed the last pair they have in my size thumbs-up.gif)

Kudu is increasingly looking like a must own leather. I may get in the longwings when they are back next fall/winter...

There is not a lot of information regarding the 379X floating around. As you probably know, some Japanese only models use this last. Subsequently, some factory seconds stayed ashore and are available from at least one US Alden retailer. The Japanese distributor describe this as the "military" last used for US military officer's dress uniform shoes, i.e. a particularly comfortable last for the military personnel. I am not sure how much of this is marketing hype vs. truth. In any case, IMO, I will describe 379X to be similar to the Modified, but overall smaller. The 379X has high arch support, but less so than the Modified. Volume around the toe box is smaller. For the same number size, I found the 379X to be quite a bit tighter than the Modified and Barrie.


Hope that helps.

Epaulet is doing a preorder for an Obscura-inspired boot in ravello, so no need to fly to Hong Kong...They also are long gone by now.
