i'm sure there are others, but there is an old school shoe store downtown NYC called Stapleton Shoes.  They sell for less than $660.  They have no internet and doubt they have ever shipped anything anywhere.  After shipping/tax it may be worth ordering from internet.

imo, all of them were bad except the first one, which was great. the worst was the 2nd one (temple of doom). kate capshaw's character was extremely annoying and the movie was boring.

Hey guys,

How does the Van last fit compared to others? There's a pair of LHS I'm interested in with that last, but I only have Barrie/Trubalance pretty much for Aldens.

I don't have as much experience as others here, but I wear an 11D in Aberdeen, a 10.5d in Barrie. I just bought a pair of 11D LHS that I rather expected to be too big based on the Alden last chart found on line, but they fit fine.

I think my standard size is 10C, my Barrie is 9.5D, my aberdeen tassels are 9.5C.  The tassels are not a perfect fit, but I don't think any size would be one for me.

My standard 403 CXL Indys that I got from TSM a couple years ago didn't come with cloth bags either. I bought a pair of 3rd party shoe bags from Amazon.

I've gotten bags, and not on Indy's. I've also never bagged any of my boots...wear 'em year round

I've never not received shoe bags with any Alden shoes I have purchased, even my J Crew model. Leffot's Indy boots all come with shoe bags. Hard to imagine Indy boots from Alden Madison or Alden DC not including shoe bags, even the stock models.

Kate Capshaw was annoying, but I loved Short-round.

My first pair of shells, purchased 13 years ago when I started at Brooks Brothers. They were on my feet 12 years ago for commencement at undergrad. Today, they're on my feet as I graduate law school!
