This is the info Alden sent me via email.

BB Tassel loafer = Aberdeen
BB Penny unlined loafer = Van
BB Blucher = Barrie
BB Straight tip = Aberdeen
BB Perforated cap toe = Snap
BB Wingtip bal = Plaza

As far as TTS, you might check the wealth of info in this thread as well as a very brief visual, thanks to OP.

IMHO Snap fits very TTS.

Good to know about the M-58.

I need some help in making a choice. I own the JCrew captoe boot in #8 and love it. I have opportunity to get a captoe boot in #8 on plaza last with double leather soles. Basically the same boot, with different lasts.

Should I get them and why?

Thanks!

See Ya,
Steve

plaza is dressier
post #78097 of 122416
I love the plaza. I would do it over the Barrie, but as NAMOR said, it is a dressier last. The Grant is middle ground between the two.

does anyone have in-the-wild pictures of TSM's dark tan?



that stock photo makes their dark tan almost look like ravello...

Pic looks like a standard "british tan" shade.

What do my Alden brethren wear with shorts in the spring/ summer besides loafers? My feet don't do well with loafer sizing. Any bluchers? Maybe the suede dovers? I wanted to go to shoe for warmer months. I thought about just wearing my brown CXL dovers. I'm pretty casual in the warmer months with usually shorts and V neck tee or something. I wore my Whiskey LWB once last year with shorts and I was self concious all day, haha.

Curious what size you are on other lasts as a comparison?

You could go all the way and add a jacket and tie with the shorts and dress shoes. :uhoh:
