Regarding the Alden bb wingtip, someone mentioned that like the other BB offerings, the last used is different from standard BB offerings. This shoe looks like plaza last but fits alot like Tremont last. I take a 12 in plaza, 11.5c Barrie, 11.5 grant, 12 Aberdeen, 12e Leydon, 11.5 Tremont, 11.5 BB wingtip

2) How good or bad are usually irregulars in terms of the defect? I know I have up to 90 days to send back but if I do pull the trigger, it will be mailed to mail box in the US and I will have to make trip from Toronto to grab.
3) Size wise I'm guessing I'm a 7.5 D barrie since I'm a 7.5 D in trubalance Indy
4) Should I kop?

That reminds me of the Atom.

Thanks guys. They are black shell longwings on barrie with navy laces.

A true testament to why an Alden noob would be utterly confused as to what size to get. nod[1].gif

I'm looking for a black shell shoe that can be both somewhat dressy (suits) and casual enough for khakis and a blazer.  I have narrowed it down to a PTB (9901) and a straight tip blucher (2161).  I also considered the perforated Cap Toe Bal, but I'm not sure it would be as versatile.  Any thoughts, suggestions, or other options?  Thanks in advance!

Your posts are very valuable as they show off the dressier uses of Alden shoes

What are your thoughts on a black cap toe blucher boot or NST shoe or boot?
post #34964 of 122416

I haven't purchased boots yet.  I guess i'm open to the idea.  I like J Crew's color 8 Perf cap Toe boot.  I think the NST might be too casual, but not sure.
