I would think they are nicer construction than 99% of what he sees

Thanks Jedi.  Kathy at Alden DC is absolutely great to work with and helpful in determining size.

Did you end up going with your Barrie size, same width?


Barrie= 9.5E or 10D (9.5E is probably the more proper fit)

LHS= 9.5D

 

Hope this is helpful my friend.  All the best...

I have to say, they are definitely nicer in person than in any photo that I've seen. Consider me hooked, and thank you all for sharing your experiences on this forum--As a newbie, I've found the content and camaraderie inspiring and welcoming.

J. Crew #8 Chukka


Spectacular!  Not much of a chukka fan, but hubba hubba, what a shine...  Welcome to the club my friend, but be forewarned, you are entering a dangerously expensive path! nod[1].gif  Wear in wonderful health...

Over the last couple weeks I've been catching up, reading posts from 2012 and 2013. I must say, you regular (and a few not so regular) contributors have provided a wealth of dialog, information and photos, all in a very collegial, well-written package. I look forward to contributing where I am able. But I am definitely just a student of Aldens. I own quite a few pairs (shoes, boots, shell, non-shell, special make-ups & non), but I don't find many opportunities to provide input that hasn't already been supplied. But I'll try.

Below are my color 4/black shell saddles from J.Gilbert. I remember pining for the blucher version that LS released several years ago, so I immediately joined JG's pre-order when Yenni told me about it. Several others have posted their photos of this shoe, but I wanted to add a couple of mine (albeit iPhone shots). I have always enjoyed the look of saddles, but this one especially. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)







 

Fine looking saddles my friend and welcome back.  Look forward to hearing from you and seeing some of your collection in the coming weeks.  Wear in great health...

I see lexol makes a few products, is this the same stuff wal mart carries? Also can it be used for car leather, furniture, etc. Just curious.

Thank you, sir. And true to my word, after reading the thread for the last month, I ended up making a purchase. Actually two ... Make that three. Actually four. I just put in for Leffot's Tanker and LWB pre-orders. Also, when Crew had it's 20% off deal, I decided to order the Color 8 cap toe boot - it was on back order, but hopefully it will pan out. Finally, I ordered (and already received) the Leffot Naval Boot in black - it's my first foray into black shell, but I feel like I have enough other options in my closet that I really could use a solid boot in black (shell being a major bonus). Basically, I have a full-blown case of Aldenitis.


Wow, talk about falling off the wagon!  We're here to support you my friend!icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

But that pair of King Chukkas, well, that's entirely another story, isn't it?

Great looking chukka. Congrats.

 

I know exactly what you mean. In fact, aside from their timeless beauty and versatility, their availability was the major impetus behind this purchase. Someone said it better just a few days ago and I've learned the hard way to completely agree. If you see a pair of Aldens that you like, pull the trigger or you'll regret it (especially when a considerate soul posts a 20% off coupon). It's only immediately after a new purchase (read: expenditure) that you realize what a blessing it is that your other favorites aren't available for yet another several months : )

Now that's a shot. Nice shoes and pic.
