Is there really a fit difference?

I go TTS on the LHS and TTS C/E on the Brooks Bros. unlined version

What kills me is not that they are so often dead wrong. It's that smug confidence with which they deliver that dead wrong info. I'll stop now...

No offense but you can predict this from the get-go.  Asking a BB SA about an Alden last will undoubtedly get you a smug, condescending look and an unknowledgeable response.  It's not worth your time.  You're better off asking folks here like Seven (and me :bigstar:)

In my experience, there is a significant enough size difference between the BB unlined and standard Alden LHS models.  I have to size up for the unlined BB LHS.

Whiskey SWB Bals always look like they're worth 3 times their actual price.

To find a pair in my size puts them i'n my grail territory currently.

I am still in the hunt for Cigar Shell LWB but I missed having a pair of Black Shell LWB since I outgrew my workhorse pair and these were available in my new size for $400.

Yes. At least recently anyways their policy is full payment up front on confirmed production styles.

 

You may be able to ask to give them money for something that is unconfirmed? I never tried. They run a list.

 

I think that Plaza 8 Indy has a deep list and last I knew wasnt confirmed yet. :(

This could of changed, as things do daily.

There is a list for the plaza NST as well. No word on it being confirmed yet. Not sure where I am on that list.
