I'm considering the LHS in either cigar or whiskey. I wear an 11D in the Barrie last. What would be the appropriate size in the van last? Thankspost #43564 of 1224162/16/13 at 6:42amQuote:

Given I have no Plaza-lasted boots (or shoes), and given how much I like the looks of this last, I want my next Alden purchase to be on the Plaza last. I like some of the makeups at J. Gilbert but am hesitant to buy my first Plaza-lasted shoe from them given their strict return policy. I can try the Alden stores in NYC or DC but their websites mostly have just #8 which I already have enough of for now (and black which might be a purchase laster on down the line). I'd even be interested in buying a Plaza-lasted boot in calf just to try this last. I'm guessing the NYC and DC stores have good return policies, no?
That's my dilemma. The strategy I think is going to be to have to call the retailers with decent return policies regularly as some others have said they do.
I know that NYC (Madison) does. When I ordered the Ravello chukka last week I asked about returns because I have some concerns over the Barrie last and my narrow heels, but I'm going to try my best to make them work. Had a hard time hearing him but it was either 10 days or 2 weeks full refund then something else after that for 30 days if i understood him correctly.post #43567 of 1224162/16/13 at 8:13amQuote:Originally Posted by El Argentino
I hope everyone's NRO purchases pan out...
But it seems like every 3-month cycle is the same. People get all googly-eyed over "ALDEN DIZCOUNTZ!!!1!" put in orders, and then we quickly get the same anti-NRO posts about poor service, orders falling through, etc. Here's hoping y'all get your pairs -
Yeah, I've been through the ordeal of placing an order, having my credit card charged, getting an email that the shoes weren't in stock, and then emailing and calling them about 5 times before finally getting them to cancel the order (did you notice how in PTO's post about NRO they said they weren't able to confirm something because they couldn't get someone on the phone?). Even if they did have the shoes in stock, I've read multiple reviews saying NRO will only give store credit with returns. So, the sales since have been tempting, but I've decided they aren't worth the stress.post #43568 of 1224162/16/13 at 8:15amQuote:
I'm an 11 D in the barrie. An 11 D LHS had way too much heel slip. An 11 C reduces the slip. I'm not sure that that's the right size (I don't own an LHS yet), but I think it is. I really like the LHS in cigar, ravello, and whiskey.post #43569 of 1224162/16/13 at 9:05amQuote:Originally Posted by Cold Iron

Thanks for the info. My targets will be the NYC and DC stores as well as maybe LS. I just need to be patient as I think I have good breadth in my collection. Now it's time for chasing unicorns.post #43570 of 1224162/16/13 at 10:11amQuote:Originally Posted by ElliottPapineau

These are fantastic. I appreciate the bar lacing too.Quote:
Yes, I see that now. Went back to the image and saw how almost-red it becomes at the heel vs. the buttery color along the instep. Great pair either way.post #43571 of 1224162/16/13 at 10:49amGents, need some words of wisdom on LS Safari boots in snuff suede. Anyone has those and care to share some thoughts?
If you had a choice between snuff suede flex PT vs snuff suede Safari as casual boots?

My van size = my barrie size minus one width.
