Quick question about sizing. I'm looking at getting my first pair of Aldens, going with the JCrew Indy 405's. I wear an 8.5D in Chippewa homesteads and Clarks Desert boots, would I be safe going with an 8.5 D in the Indy's?
That boot sold out in my size. If anyone doesn't want their Leffot Reverse Chamois Greenwich Boot in 10D, please let me know! :)
Alden wish list 2015 for me:
- Shell boots:
Perforated cap toe boot in Color 8 on Barrie last (J. Crew)
NST boot in Color 8 on Plaza last (J. Gilbert)
"Dr. Jones" Color 8 on Plaza last with commando sole (Frans Boone - really hope they re-stock sizes!)
- Shell shoes:
Dover (either Leffot model or unlined) in Color 8 or Ravello
- Suede shoes:
Dover in snuff suede on Leydon last
Chukka in snuff suede on Leydon last
- Grail #1: Cigar NST Tanker on commando sole, and I'll take it on any last (but preferably Barrie or Plaza)
- Grail #2: Ravello Cap-toe or Wingtip on commando sole on any last
That's rule of thumb - was the Aberdeen the same as your true size? I have wide feet and half size down from true on Barrie or Trubalance is golden for me. I've never tried the narrower lasts.
