I'm the teddy bear who wears those. If you don't believe me, check out the tattoo I got last year!

Man all these sizing horror stories are scaring me.. I went with my Danner hiking boots/Chucks sizing (which is supposedly .5 bigger than tagged). Will I be okay?shog[1].gif

Relax.  Don't worry.  Everything will be OK in the end.

Just wondering if anyone's come across any shoes on the Barrie last with a 270 degree welt? I've seen the pair below that LeatherSoul did last year but they're no longer available. Other than the plain toe (which I already own), are there any other options (calf or cordovan) on the Barrie that would work as a dress shoe?

I go TTS with the PLAZA last

Not bad... looks a lot like the RL Sanderson that I just sold.... I believe made by AE, but not positive ... certainly above typical AE quality:

The big miss with the Leffot spectator longwings is that they used white calf instead of suede. I prefer non-gunboat specs.

I found this rather amusing:

eBay Alden shell cordovan tassel loafers

The seller is listing them as "NEW" because he had them recrafted.

So I sent a note to the seller and he replies "well I'm confident they are new due to the process that Alden uses for restoration, and if you don't like it, don't bid."

What makes it even funnier is the second to last pic shows a clearly torn upper, or a gash of some sort in the shell .... lulz....

Not sure when the next Alden design contest might be, but here are some thoughts on slight changes to some classics:

NST blucher (similar to style #962) in Alden Walnut Brown Calf (aberdeen last), double leather or oiled leather sole

PTB in dark brown calf (barrie last), double leather, oiled leather, or commando sole

Medallion cap toe oxford (similar to style #911) in dark brown calf (hampton last)

what did you order? depends on the last. if grant, plaza or one of the smaller lasts you will probably be OK. if barry or trubalance you most likely need to size down.

I'm intrigued, though I definitely don't need another LWB right now and I'd prefer fabric, canvas I'd guess, for the white.

Interesting. For a "Gatsby" like shoe, I prefer tan suede longwings... I bought them from Leffot, but Leather Soul and Epaulet also sell them.

Sweet!  Not sure that I want to spend the money on a novelty item (not sure I would wear them much).  I have my eyes set on ravello LWB; coming in April-May.
