FYI I'm unloading some Alden 907s, see my sig for details

BTW, the 8D in my sig somehow still fit me with a thin dress sock on, even though I'm a true 8.5D. The Hampton normally fits true to size, or runs slightly large?

Because based on the "shoe-last chart," it's way over on the left near the Aberdeen for running tts...

It's also suprisring to see how similar the last shape is to the Modified last... when I saw them in store I would have sworn they were on the mod. last - and wasn't convinced otherwise until I found a pair of 907s on an official affiliate store listing.

Hampton is generally TTS. Having said that, I own Hampton lasted shoes in 9D, 9.5D, and 10C. I am a TTS 9.5D.

In my experience, the Hampton is quite different from the Modified.

Correct - LS just had the shortwing in ravello a month or two ago. I was one of the fortunate ones.

Awesome...lets see a pic out and about. I'm an 8 Barrie, so if anyone has anything close they want to move let me know. JT

I was curious to see if anyone would notice the venue. You are correct, it was the Bowl. The L.A. Philharmonic was performing Beethoven in honor of his 150th birthday.

Gentlemen, I have just received a pair of calfskin NST bluchers from Moulded Shoe.  This is my first calf Alden (everything else is CXL, Kudu, or suede).  The leather is very squeaky (as I walk around the house checking the fit).  I haven't conditioned the leather, yet.  Nonetheless, is this normal?  Many thanks.

Not a good sign... this could mean there are air gaps in the cork or between the feather and sole

It's curious because I tried them on at Moulded Shoe.  They didn't squeak in store as far as I can recall.  Presumably, this is the same pair I tried on (I had them shipped to my house which was cheaper than the sales tax).
