My old captoes on aberdeen in whiskey shell -- I don't have them anymore (sold to an alden aficianado on SF). Probably the best shell pair I had.

FYI, alden does not make balmorals on the modified last. Bluchers only.

I ask that myself, but ah well. I had too many pairs and had to get rid of a few. Look up the old B&S and search for "purge" with my username to see my sale threads.

Bal boots are hard to fit, but the most probable reason is that alden does not have the patterns and is not willing to create any.

Just an FYI: I needed some replacement laces for my shell LS x alden jumpers and found http://www.peasandcornco.com/shoelaces/fashionrounddresslaces.asp . I decided to have some fun and picked up some in ice blue, etc, and they're.. kinda cool. For those of you wearing similar boots as mine, you want the 54" laces. I ordered the 63" due to a sizing mistake on another pair I picked up locally (I though they were 54", but were 48" and too short), but they look good and I wrap the ankle, but the 54" should be perfect. That little bit of color really does make it stand out a bit more, if that's your thing. I'd like to find flat waxed black laces, but maybe not so much now that I've found these.
