I always worry that if I buy something I kind of want, something will become available shortly there after and i won't have the money to pull the trigger. Ah Alden problems...

Interesting make-up.  Howeber, you may want to consider that my barrie suede PTBs feel significantly narrower than any of my other barrie lasted shoes and boots.  The first time I tried them I thought it was a mistake... didn't feel much different than the leydon suede chukkas (only the size was .5 smaller).  IN other words my barrie suede PTBs (10D) = leydon suede chukka (10.5D) as far as fit, comfort, and feel.  Not sure that others will agree though.

No problem.  Epaulet will issue full refunds for Style Forum members.  I'm currently in the process right now.  I would email them ahead of time, though.

 

Edit: Already been addressed.  My bad.

Same here. Buying true US made has become important to me. I want desperately to believe in my country and its craftsman

An oxymoron. Though, maybe not:

American "Scotch"

I have a very modest "collection" of Aldens. They are somewhat conservative as I wear them to work most days. I will dip my toe in the shoe porn pool with a pair of Mahogany Cordovan Straight Tip Bluchers which I purchased from Jim at Alden SF many moons ago. Recently, they received the full restoration treatment from Alden.



I love the two-tone coloration on the inside of the right shoe. I am not sure if you can distinguish it with my horrible iphone shot.


Missed these at first pass. An excellent example of just what's so special about shell. Thanks for the photos.

Gsgleason, if that's #8 and not black (can't tell), it looks like the J.Crew pct boot. Great boot. It's as sleek as a Barrie last can get. Narrow flat welt and close heel.

Correct, #8 J. Crew. Ordered TTS and they fit perfect. I was very surprised at how sleek they were in person. Where the #8 really shines is in direct sunlight IMO, hard to capture in a picture how awesome it is. So happy with the decision to pull the trigger on these.

This looks identical in color to my Ravellos. Crazy how much variation there can be
