NAMOR, deets on the trousers? We have the same Leffot Cigar Indys, I've been loving different combinations with it. Are those OTC socks?

I lived in Roland Park for about 12 years and have since moved on. I spent plenty of time in the White Marsh/Cowenton area and worked downtown and at JHMI.

 

Oh, and Alden of DC is probably your best best.  I think there is a shop on Falls Rd at the City/County line but I'm not sure.

 

**Edit**

 

Via Alden website; last time I checked it was just Samuel Parker.  The other two must be new.

Leathersoul or whom ever feels they can answer; do you ever get E or better yet EEE widths in the special models, can they be special ordered, and in general, does the Alden toe box have a lot of room?

Thanks in advance.
post #28344 of 122416

Most of the Alden retailers will pre-order special sizes by request.  But you have to get in during the pre-order window which is 8-12 months prior to delivery.  Your best bet is to call or email and tell them which shoe you want.  Then wait patiently until a pre-order opens.  Otherwise, you have to go with a company like Allen Edmonds that takes custom orders on an individual basis.

Can "commando soles" be added to my indy boots whenever? I'm thinking it might be a good idea in the near future considering I live in Oregon and wear them most days.
post #28346 of 122416

B Nelson can put commandos on for you.

I used to live in Baltimore, and I got my first pair of Aldens from Samuel Parker. The owner there, Ken, is a really cool dude - super nice and knowledgeable. If you have sizing issues, go there and he will help you out. He doesn't get any special makeups, but he can order any stock shoe for you, and if it doesn't fit, he will order a different size from the Alden factory free of charge until you have nailed your fit. I definitely don't recognize the other store names either, so they must be new like you said.

Very well loved, Sri! I'm happy to give them a warm and loving home.

 

For those who are curious, srivats is a real gentleman and a pleasure to deal with.

Wearing this with a simple outfit (RRL denim, lacoste black polo). Soon enough, the white pants will be broken out with these.

 

Those saddles are just beautiful, Al. Have you seen Leffot's "Gatsby" spectator?
