Namor has some pics of his already on this thread somewhere. We have the same ones. I bought them in black. Think of a black captoe dress shoe like the AE Park Ave but with extra leather around the ankle. The edge doesn't extend much past the upper, so it is a very clean look.

Top center left boot. The toe is more round in real life.

Try Leegin and the long line of resale price maintenance cases. The pricing stipulations would be analyzed under rule of reason -- it is really contingent on how onerous the pricing provisons are and how good your lawyers can make up a compelling business justifications (and I want my prices to be high and make more money is not one).

thank you

Rolex will revoke dealerships if their watches are sold below list, and they have successfully done so. Wouldn't a mutually bairgained-for signed contract trump a dealer argument?

Unfortunately, they didn't have what I wanted in stock, but Robert gladly placed a special order for me and everything arrived at his shop a few days later. I picked up my purchases on my drive back through town about a week later...
Amore Clothing has more Aldens in store than what's displayed online and Robert can order any stock Alden from the catalog (no special makeups afaik), provided they are in stock at Alden.
Here's the good great part: #8 LHS are $499 and LWB are $525. In fact, they offer all their Alden shoes at very competitive prices. Robert explains that thanks to lower operating costs, they're able to pass along some savings to their customers. Awesome.
I encourage everyone to support this local business and recommend you e-mail Robert to check stock/availability before placing an order. Don't hesitate to mention that you read about them here; I promised Robert that I'd spread the word about their great customer service.

 

Thanks for the tip.  Just got off the phone with Rob (he mentioned he has been slammed by SF members) and ordered a pair of #8 LWBs.  I should have them within two weeks. 

 

Still looking for the cap toe cigar.  Looks like Shoe Mart is the only place to order them, they are out of my size and told me I can put in an order, but it will be next April before they are delivered.

Just ordered a pair of #8 LHS from Rob..thanks for the tip Wes Bourne!

I ordered 8.5D in Van Last and wear 9D in Grant Last, do they fit half a size smaller compare to TTS Grant?

cheers

I have determined I am a 10.5E in the Barrie last. I ordered an 11E in the Van (LHS). There seems to be a lot of conflicting feedback on whether the Van and Barrie run at the same size, or if the Van is more TTS. Can anyone offer some further insight?

got this form AoC fit guide:

"Van last - 1/4 to 1/2 size larger than regular U.S. size"

Color #8 LWB at $525 put me in a really hard place. I just bought some new AE Park Avenues at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for job interviews, and haven't worn them yet... tempted to return them and get LWB and hope nobody I interview with cares enough to notice the difference.  Besides that, they'd also be good for casual wear.

 

Or I could stick with my old corrected-grain black Florsheims from Macy's for the interviews...

While we're back on the topic of lasts, how does the Grant compare to the Barrie (is it both shorter and more narrow)?

I'm a (Snug) 11.5D Barrie should i go up one 1/2 size and one width on the grant?

ie. from an 11.5D Barrie to a 12E grant?

I know talking about fit is as much fun as sitting in on the Allen Edmonds forum, but any help on this would be awesome!
