I really hope this works out for you, but why would anyone buy from these clowns? Especially when the ad clearly said Aldens are excluded. IMO, you're just asking for trouble from the wonderful crew at NRO.

I placed the order just in case they actually had them in stock, fully aware of their reputation. As expected, they didn't (or said they didn't), and I cancelled the order.

I advise you to get a written confirmation of the cancellation from NRO.
I cancelled my last order with them and they still billed/shipped the shoes 2 months later.
I had to open a BBB claim to get them to take the order back.
they are dubious scoundrels.

Meaning they would not allow you to return the shoes?

Thanks for the warning. I will be calling them in the morning.

they state that in order to return an item you need to email them and have an RMA # issued.
they never returned emails requesting an RMA, nor phone calls/voicemails.

but hey, to their credit, they responded within 12 hours of my filing a complaint with the better business bureau!

Hi Alden lovers!

I've been a keen follower of this forum. To me this seems like one big family. This is my first comment on this forum. 

My shoe cabinet comprises of :

 

1. Alden Longwing blucher in #8 shell (Alden NYC)

2. Alden Longwing blucher in Ravello shell (Alden DC)

3. Alden NST in Cigar (Alden SF)

4. Alden Perf cap toe bal in Black shell (Alden SF)

 

This may not be a long list, but considering that I live in India and I discovered Alden a year back, this is my repertoire.

 

My best wishes to the forum members.

Man, you must be balling in India with those Aldens!
post #34838 of 99270

Well wj4, all I can say is I've never seen anyone sport Aldens here in India and I love the fact that I'm wearing a high quality shoe that no one recognizes.

post #34839 of 99270
How do I confirm which last the shoe is on in the codes in the inside?

Oxblood Brixton Boots...   Was really worried about getting the size right but I think I nailed it.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
First inspection.







Gonna go put a few miles on em.

Hope this doesn't become an expensive habit...

The bad news is that it will. The good is that you at least have a nice guitar and a cute dog you can sell to help fund it.

Oh yes. I guess most guys in this thread know what you're talking about nod[1].gif

Cigar LWBs are wonderful. Nice choice.

Thank you. I can't wait to break in those longwings and see what Barrie will fit like.

Btw, I think I've mentioned it before, but I was inclined to go with cigar PTB (also from Alden SF, I was kinda assuming I'd give in and get a #8 LWB afterwards), but it sold out in my size in front of my eyes. Well, I thought, I'm good either way colgate.gif

Thanks, I tried to snap some indoors, but wasn't too successful with the iphone camera:

 

 

 

I'll try to shoot some pics in the wild after I've broken them in. Hot damn, I'm starting to realize what this is all about happy.gif

Very nice. Enjoy in good health, as uncle would surely say.

Alden NY? Some here might disagree, but I really like the dark welt on these and cigar in general. I think I'm going to ultimately go with a #8 LWB, but I go back and forth between #8 and cigar. I suppose they are both great options and most end up with both. smile.gif
