I think these are from Anatomica in Paris. But I could be wrong!

My feet are border line C-D width and the Snuff Suedes don't come in narrow widths, so I went down about a full size...9.5 C-D to 8.5D. The salesman at the Sherman Brothers store in Haverford couldn't believe I sized down that much on the Indy's. He would of never put in that size. He said maybe size up and go narrow width. They fit me great!

Nice! I am also a narrow D/borderline C width as well. I know @mdubs has had luck going TTS in B or C width on Barrie. I am going to give that a try soon!

Anyone see the new Kenton Pacer Boots at J Crew? A near identical match to the Alden Indy!! Just don't size down in these... If you catch them on sale you can score them for $150...

I don't think this question has been asked in a while so hopefully I can be forgiven for asking it . . . does anyone know of any cigar tanker lists that one could get on?  I know LS did a run a few years ago but it seems to be a unicorn nowadays.  TIA.


sorry homey. pure unicorn now.

would make for a feeding frenzy if someone else offered them now.

Yeah, I am a 10.5C TTS and wear 10.5B on the Barrie/Trubalance... Fits really nicely on my feet. I know one other (also a San Diegan) who does the exact same thing as me, although they aren't very active here... I wear 10.5C in a few shoe sizes, such as the Grant, Plaza, and Tremont and 11B on the narrower lasts like Hampton and Aberdeen.

I've seen them in store and definitely an Alden Indy knockoff.  Quality obviously no where near the same.  Would be a decent beater option but that sole is way to salmony bright.

Has anyone heard from Alden Madison on the status of the ravello WT boots on commando? I feel like that order was submitted before TSM's boot order.

Good to know Mike, thanks! I am good with an 8.5D in the Trubalance last.

They ALL went in roughly at around the same time... Also please note that it also depends on the lag time between when a store receives the order and when they actually fax it over to the factory... I know that Madison was still working on some of their orders a few weeks after they had it confirmed... Also, about 15 runs (that I know about) of rare shoes got confirmed within a weeks time back at the beginning of June... I do not know what order they were going to start on them....

 

We are in the same boat with the Cigar LWBs from TheShoeMart. They seemed to be confirmed at the same time as AoC's Cigar LWBs and their own Whiskey LWBs and yet they still haven't come and yet I have had the Whiskey's for nearly a month now...

 

Just some food for thought... Essentially you are on an "any day" basis right now... :-)

Hey fellas!

 

I thought you'd like to know there some more Shell Cordovan wallets up on massdrop from Ashland Leather for $95.99 (once 20 buy it)

 

https://www.massdrop.com/r/5EQ5WK  

 

It's the Bugs Moran version....and they only have 150 of them. I bought one because its' roomier than my Little Louis from Ashland.
