Agreed; it just came through but I'm not inspired

8 and 8.5 d are definitely lacking.

How do you guys size van last loafers and plaza loafers? Thanks
post #72050 of 122416
Just received the irregular list for 9 and 9.5. No shell at all and really not much else. Couple interesting saddles. Oh, and BTW, it appears the prices have gone up to $325 on some of the non-shell.

For the Van, I size down and for the Plaza, I stay TTS (including Plaza loafers).

If anyone out there is looking for an Alden "starter," there is a nice tan calf LWB 10D for $300 on TSM's irregular list.  Not sure if it's the J Crew version or not.  Other than that, nothing interesting in 10D, 10.5D, 10E, or 10.5E.

I HATE you guys! I went in to Alden DC to check out the color 8 chukkas and black shell PTB and walked out with 2 totally different shoes - the boots quoted below and a pair of Dovers in black shell. I'm not sure about the black shell dovers since I didn't even get a chance to try them on. I noticed them at the end when my car had been in 30 minute parking for 90 minutes so I told them I'd try them on at home and see how I like them. I really didn't like the PTB since it seemed much bulkier so I went with the Dover instead.

I do find the crepe soles very comfortable and have a ways to go before they need resoling so we'll see what I do when the time comes. In the meantime I will give the Ranger Mocs a lot of wear and will probably use them as my main walking shoe when I travel to Paris next month.

 

I'll take pics of mine tomorrow. Walked in there and was totally not expecting something that beautiful. I was having a hard time deciding between color 8 shell and black shell but the 8 shell won out.

I got an 8.5D in the Grant and also wear an 8.5D in my Indy's. My Indys are much roomier however. We tried an 8D for me in the chukkas but my left toe was ever so slightly too close to the end so we agreed that the 8.5D was the best fit for me. Guess I'm a pretty solid 8.5D in most of their lasts due to the full shape of my foot.

No shell on either the 9, 9.5, or 10 D lists.

Obviously the reason the seconds list is lacking is because Alden sends everything made out as firsts wink.gif

Speaking of Alden DC - I forgot to ask Kathy what lists she has going for shell makeups.  I know about the cigar cap toe boot, but what else?  I sorta overheard her mention something about another run of the ravello LWB.  Anything else?

I've visited Alden NYC, Alden SF, I should hop on a train and visit Alden DC soon...

Another run of the ravello LWB? Do you know how soon? May have to call her back tomorrow. Not good......
