Grant is not perfect for me. I am giving it another shot with these Cigar boots. For me TTS fits better on Plaza than Grant, I find Grant slightly long

I erred on the side of too big instead of too small. If they do not work I will put them in the market place and pick up the color #8 nst.

you go 8.5? 8 would not work for you. I tried to squeeze into the 8 during the last run since 8.5 was sold out and my foot felt like it was in a sausage casing made of shell cordovan

I love how the flash shows the character of the leather.  My other #8 shoes and boots don't show this color under the camera's flash.









I have those too, they rule,

I have traditionally sized grant TTS. For giggles, I called Alden DC to see if they had the cigar captoes in 9.5E so I could try my Barrie size in those boots (none were made).

Yup 8.5 d, they had an 8d in stock 2 to 3 years when I called to order them. Kathy advised me the 8 likely wouldn't work for me as such she said she would put me on the 8.5 list. I totally forgot all about it until I got the email yesterday. I broke out in exuberant laughter. So awesome, I guess it is one advantage to Alden's lead times.

Very smart. Again, I wear a 10.5D in the Plaza / Aberdeen, but had to go 11D in the Grant as the 10.5D really rubbed against my toes. At worst, I would put in a thin Tacco Woody insert and I suspect you will be fine.

And the same shoe has been on sale for quite awhile at Ben Silver for $100 less, and still a few common sizes left.

This is the kind of stuff in the world of Alden that makes me laugh. Ben Silver always has great stuff on sale, and it often goes in a flash. Guess these weren't super popular for them.

Has anyone ever put together a list of all Alden models? Or at least the most popular makeups?
