I picked up a snuff suede belt to match my snuff suede strong wings from Leffot. Leather is butter soft and I sized up to a 36 (I have a 33/34 waist)

They look really great. Question for you: since they are semi-lined, how does the fit compare to the unlined chukka, i.e., is the toe box more reinforced like a regular PT Blucher? Or does it end up looking a little flat and slipper-ish?

My latest, and probably last pair of Alden Boots. LTD Adventurebilt Alden 405's. Love these boots. Its a thicker leather then the standard Indy, obvious darker brown, dark moc toe stitching, all leather lined, and are built same exactly the same as the vintage 405 boots of the late 70's early 80's (which is different then today's 405, 403, 404 from Alden). Even the die logo inside the shoe is the vintage 80's version. Had to wait a year for them to be made, and then had to send them back to the factory as the tongue was too small. Just got them back today. It's hard to capture the true colour of the boots in the light in my place, but this is the best I could do. w/o flash w/flash

The "Clipper Oxford" has been in the Alden catalog for nearly 100 years and is one of their best selling patterns to this day.

Crafted from Brown Chromexcel leather from Chicago's Horween Leather Co.

360 degree reverse welt, painted brown brass eyelets, full leather linings, natural cork insole, full heel counters and steel shank through the arch for long lasting comfort and support.

Very versitile.

Commando sole (Leffots recently had a similar shoe with blind eyelets & a crepe sole)

Currently, my favorite shoe.

Hi folks,

Do the J.Crew cap toe Cordovan boots (Barrie last) fit basically the same as non boots on the Barrie last like the 975? Or do they feel any looser or tighter?

It has been a while so I am going from memory but IIRC my Barrie lasted boots seemed slightly smaller than my Barrie Lasted PTB's. I have several pairs of PTB's in Barrie and only one pair of Barrie lasted Plain toe Boots in black shell. I wish there was more science to this but really if we do mail order it is kind of a blind voodoo until you get to know what personally fits. Good Luck. EDIT: To keep this from getting out of hand I would like to add that both fit and I have no problem. I just notice the boots seem to be ever so slightly smaller and actually look sleeker than the shoes. Just my opinion. YMMV

There is not a lot of reinforcement in the toe, but so far they are holding their shape well like a regular PTB. I guess time will tell.

I think this is due to the fact that the boot feels more snug since it supports your ankle.

These look great. Love the contrast edging, light stitching and colored eyelets. Alden is doing a different makeup of this model than last year. I have the sand and dark brown suede ptbs from Alden Madison Ave., and they have blind eyelets.

BTW, picked up a sand suede belt with nickel buckle from the DC store last week. My compliments to Kathleen for her great customer service in trying to get my shoe sizes fitted correctly. She is great to work with.

It's actually a makeup for Sherman Brothers, not the stock Alden shoe.

Perhaps it's the lighting but yours look like a different shade of snuff than my lwb. Are those on the Barrie? Not seeing the shoe on the Sherman Bros website.

Not on the site, but call them, they have it in snuff and a darker brown. It is Barrie, and I assume that you are right about the color difference being due to the lighting.
