Sized TTS. They are tight, but in a completely comfortable way. The length is good, there's no gap around the foot, and no undue pressure on the instep as some have reported. I'm assuming that once I wear them in a bit, they are going to be quite comfortable.
Not from BB. These are the official 986 lined LHSs. Bought them in a shop in Pittsburgh while there on business. Didn't want to get an LHS until I could try them on for size and then was happy to buy them then from this small shop. And no sales tax in PA...

Can't imagine that you'd be able to fit 11D van, from what I know. I like the very upright toe box on these. Kept seeing shots on this thread and I finally felt like I understood what the Alden LHS is all about. Alden's really is a classic version.
