I don't mind "these are for sale" because my iPhone sf mobile version does not show member signature sale items. I find a quick message harmless.

I LOVE "buy it now" ebay psa. I recall someone recently posting a whiskey nst eBay listing with a buy it now. Someone else posted rare aoc whiskey - mahogany saddles, awesome. Not their auction, someone else scored a great pair.

Thanks DV. The nst whiskeys were my psa. Speaking of which, whomever scored them should have thanked me. Someone out there is an ungrateful &$#@...

Being always on the lookout for cordovan plain toe bluchers that are more dressy to wear with suits, I called Harrisons in the hopes that, even though I need a 7.5E which a store is unlikely to order for a specialty run, I might be pleasantly surprised with a decision to make. Unfortunately, typical retailer logic prevailed and the store ordered no small, wide shoes. The proprietor even laughed when I told him small, club - footed men bought nice shoes too. But Harrison's does have a range of sizes for you normal - footed types.

Much thanks to Mr. Fraction for the note about this interesting and uncommon make-up.

Thanks for the PSA! Now hopefully the lone person who was on the list for the sole pair in my size will pass on them.

Do the aberdeens fit narrow? How does it compare in width to lets say the marlow wingtips 325 last or barrie last?

Aberdeen is TTS for me. The toe tapers more than the 325 and Barrie.

Aberdeen is TTS for me, slightly narrower than Barrie. I'm 6E in Barrie LWB and 6.5E in Aberdeen CT blucher. Hope that helps.

I think tif head the nail on the head. If it were done consistently others would take advantage of the opportunity to list every pair of Aldens they may have. I have no problems with contributing members looking to help the community. If I decide to part with sought after shoe I would like it to go to the people who have devoted the time to educate me about the world of Alden.

I cannot answer the question as to the marlow. Barrie is Alden's second fullest and widest last. It is so roomy that most people take 1/2 smaller size in shoes or boots on the barrie last than the brannon device identifies as their proper shoe size. For example, my brannon size is 7.5 e. I wear a 7E in barrie - lasted shoes. The barrie is so full I can also very comfortably wear a 7.5d in barrie lasted shoes.

Aberdeen is Alden's most narrow last. Barrie is full in the heel, waist and round and full in the toebox. Aberdeen is narrow in the heel, straight in the waist and pointed in the toe box. Most take their brannock size in Aberdeen lasted shoes. Aberdeen not only fits more narrowly, but shoes on that last look decidedly more tapered.

And two reasons why it is Alden's best last for shoes, IMO.

Darn. I guess these aren't for me then. I was looking for something on the clunkier side, but not quite as clunky as the barrie. Which last would be the next step down in roominess after the barrie?

Has anyone else noticed that LS does not seem to be posting as many new arrivals as of late?

Plus 1 although I do like the looks of my plaza last nst (and those who say that model is too casual for suits are sadly mistaken) and the plaza last for plain toe bluchers.
