I need a B width, so I'm still SOL. The only pre-orders that work for me is when the retailer lets you order any size, which is what I did with Leffot and Epaulet so far this year.

Very handsome shoe...how are they in terms of versatility and what do you wear with them? Are they the kind of shoe that needs to be kept up a bit to look good or do they lend themselves to wear/age? And are they a bit on the "attention-grabbing" side or do they tend to blend into an outfit like most other longwings?

I'm planning on buying a pair of Alden boots. Does the material of the boot lining have a noticeable effect on your foot temperature? I would think the leather lining lasts longer, but may be hotter than the cotton.

Also, if anyone has recommendations on a cap toe boot such as this one, which looks to be a special edition ( http://www.styleforum.net/t/85589/the-official-alden-thread/13860#post_4563635 ) - I would certainly appreciate it.

Thanks for sharing your experience.

It didn't bother me temperature-wise, but I also tend to wear boots in the winter with wool socks. This kind of makes the goal to keep the feet warm. If you have reservations about buying Alden boots, I certainly wouldn't make the temperature issue one of them.

Alden models 4060 (color 8) and 4065 (black shell) at The Shoemart are similar, but are on the grant last. A boot very similar to the one in question, and also on the Barrie last, but in black shell and color 8, are at Alden Shop of SF and pics of them are a few pages back. No cigar shell captoe boots right now that I know of are being offered.

There's an effort underway to do a special order of basically that boot with Alden DC. Here's the thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/303979/alden-mto-boot-group-order-via-alden-dc/240#post_5564084. We're waiting for confirmation that Alden will make it. Send a private message to CTYGGG if you're interested.
