From what I can tell, the only retailers that carry a lot of Plaza boots are Leather Soul and J Gilbert, and E widths seem hard to come by at both retailers unless you preorder

Seeing everyone's fit pics of new boots w/ jeans on in what appears to be cooler fall weather is making this southwestern boy jealous. Still over 90 degrees here. confused.gif

I'm guessing the cadet has the same shape as a PTB in a barrie?? Recently got shell 8 and I have to say I'm loving cordovan. But I heard the debate on black cordovan being meh...

so my jcrew perf cap toe boots are hurting my feet at one of the creases. it just bends in right at the top/side of my big toe.

anyway to try to to fix this? is moving the crease to go somewhere else possible? I know it sounds silly.

I thought that too...until I got a pair of boots in black cordovan. Waaaay underrated in my opinion.

Black shell has it's place. The cadet is on the same last as the PTB, but has one more eyelet. Fit is about identical, IMO.

Did you get the right size? These apparently fit a bit smaller than other Barrie lasted Aldens. So, many size up from their normal Barrie size.

Interesting it seems to only work on the Black Cadet shoe and not others....

Just received a pair of Alden Natural Chromexcel Longwing Bluchers # 97873 from the Shoe Marts seconds list. The leather on the left shoe between the laces and wingtip is somewhat darker than that of the right, also the right shoe shows some wrinkling but I can live with this.  Other than these two factors these shoes are impeccable and actually very nice. Is there a way to slightly darken the right shoe to get it to match the other?  - Thanks

Guessing b/c they recently just dropped and they didn't bother to except it.
