The "Made in England" would be a dead giveaway. smile.gif

The 325 last fits a bit large. Maybe not quite Barrie large.
Plaza last is pretty TTS.

I take a 10.5US/10UK in a 325 last boot.
Also take a 11US in the Plaza.
YMMV, but I'm guessing you'd take a 9 in Plaza.

I appreciate your help, cheers. I'll go for the 9US in Plaza.

Anybody know if Leffot, or anyone else plans to release the cigar shell indy w/ commando sole again? I really really really want a pair of those.
post #28387 of 122416

email the Leffot, ask them to contact you if and when they come back

I think the SF community has this one right over the BB SA...

Dianite soles means there were probably made in England

The Peal & Co. for sure means they were made by Crockett & Jones

Crosspost from the Epaulet thread--Natural Chromexcel longwings with one treatment of Montana Pitch Blend (which was a pain to get out of the broguing). I love the color variation on these.

Why don't you look at other options, like the cap toe, and you could keep both, just use them for different stuff

 I'm a little hesitant to go outside of my comfort zone.  Love the LWB.  Thought I had my hands on the ravello shortwing (LS) but just barely missed out. I like the medallion cap toe and the wt boot, but haven't found either in my size.  I gave the NST some thought, but like the long wing the best.  I'm a wuss when it comes to trying something new that's this expensive. Thanks for the advice.

If you don't mind waiting 18+ months with a non-refundable/transferable deposit, let me know the styles you are looking for (non-cigar/ravello/whiskey/#4) and I will try my best to accommodate you personally. Email me directly if you are interested.

Awesome.
That is what I want to hear.
If I am in Beverly Hills can your folks there make a fairly accurate (with some allowance for error of course) determination as to whether and which models can feet my wide and high arched wide toed feet?
I'd be willing to pre-pay and wait 18 mos, but I'd hate to do so and find out Aldens are just the wrong shoes for my feet, in any size.

Recent acquisitions.  Brown calf longwing, 405 indy boot, tan suede chukka on a crepe sole.

 

Went a full size down on the indy boots and they're incredibly comfortable.  Anybody else do this?

Just putting the feelers out - if anyone has a pair of shell Indy boots in 10.5D that they are looking to part with, please PM me. Looking for good condition but they need not be perfect as they'll be motorcycle boots.
