I think it's the last one available so who knows, someone else may make the decision for me.

Ha!  I'm almost embarrassed that I was able to piece that together...  If you're not married to the antique edge then check with Alden DC.  They carry #8 Dovers with a dark edge.  Not sure what sizes they have laying around though.

Have to agree - those are some of the best looking cigar shoes I've seen... Lots of character there, great shoes.

The Alden nomenclature is sometimes confusing.

Alden Dover is a common type of plain toe Blucher. Not common for Alden, but absolutely the norm for almost every other shoemaker.

The standard Alden 'PTB' is technically a 'whole-cut' Blucher. A standard for Alden, yet not so common elsewhere (except maybe the famous Church's Shannon).

The most puzzling is that Alden has something called a Blucher Oxford. So is it Blucher, as in derby, or Oxford as in Balmoral? It seems that term Oxford simply refers to lace up shoes. Duh.

Without beating around the bush, the essence of my question is whether a 9E Dover will fit my normally 9D Barrie feet. Since these would be for casual wear and likely slightly thicker socks, it appears as though it might work. The question is whether I want to rill the dice.

I wouldn't count on the E width in the unlined version working similarly to the D width in the lined PTB version.

I'm a sucker for saddles...not sure I can resist the tan suede and navy CXL


Although now that I posted them here someone will probably buy them before I make up my mind...

You're comparing potentially thousands of lengths of wood to just a few cuts of leather; It's not even close to being the same. But for similarly sized projects carpenters do sort their material.
