Same here, seems kind of odd.

By phone only. And they are really wonderful with excellent customer service.

Just to provide another point of information, my order (#8 LWB in 10.5D) from North River Outfitters is in transit.

Also, thanks for the tip about Tom Austin Shoes. Got a great deal on black shell LWB. It seems I suddenly have an Alden collection forming.

Go to an Alden shop and try 1/2 size down from wherever you are now. I tried going the tongue pad route at first and it was "ok" but my foot was still a bit loose. I tired of the loose fit after a while, went to a store and realized I needed to size down 1 entire size down from my regular shoe size for the Barrie last. Experiment with the fit in person and spend the time figuring out what is best for your feet. You might be surprised at the results and save a lot of money in the process.

Swung by Tom Austin to see if they had anything left for me, but alas nothing there in 8.5D at least for non-black. Tried on a #8 PTB in 8D on the Barrie last but it was a little tight in front. It was a little too chunky too otherwise I would have considered it.

uhhh yeah, this is just false. Alden definitely still makes the LWB in C width - TSM has a bunch of C widths available on their site right now. Luckily, my C width snuff suede chukkas must have been in stock and they are en route to me right now. Probably won't get here until next Tuesday, since there is a holiday on Monday.

Yeah, I'm pretty bummed. I was really looking forward to finally getting a pair of Aldens.

Rob, love the combo with the plum ducks and navy suede....seems like it shouldn't work in theory but it looks great when paired up

There is a guy on ebay (username: coolshoeswalter) selling 6.5" Star horsehair brushes for $7.50 shipped which is a much more useful sized brush.

Yeah Kiwi brushes are less than half the size of the Star ones. I ended up buying one for each shell color. It that really necessary or not? Need one for #8 now if it is, otherwise will probably just use my black or dark brown brush

Why does it matter if the brush is too small? 5.75 inches seems adequate enough.

I got my unlined chukkas from NRO today. There's slight pinching along the stitching on the medial side of the shoe. Does anyone have experience whether this will stretch out over time or should I change them for a wider size?
post #28980 of 122416

Received my suede Chukkas from NRO today. Was nice to add a staple for 20% off, again, thank you for the code.

 

Any input on treating the suede before wearing?
