Just trying to see if there is interest among my Alden brethren in a brand new pair of burgundy shell captoe boots from C&J:

http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Merchant_Id=1&Section_Id=523&Product_Id=1481969&Parent_Id=522&default_color=BURGUNDY&sort_by=&sectioncolor=&sectionsize=

They retail for $998, but I am willing to sell for less. Size 10D, and the consensus is they fit TTS. They are beautiful and well constructed (Dainite sole, which I actually prefer over the commando sole). If no interest I am returning them. The fit for my foot just isn't quite right.

PM me.

I'll take the over on this one. Watching the listing to see what they go for. I could wear these, but I don't want to get involved in paying way too much for them.

Agreed - that boot will likely sell well above retail

They probably don't even have a mailing list together yet. When I was in a couple weeks ago they were showing me how they had to transcribe by hand onto paper every e-mail address submitted and then will have to type them into their e-mail system. No copy and paste possible for some reason. So, it may yet be a while.

Has anyone received anything yet?

Nope.

Can anyone comment on the fit of Alden's Straight Tip Bal (#920)?  As compared to Allen Edmond's Park Avenue would be ideal.  If I were to have purchased the Park Avenue's, I would have bought the 10.5D--would I be looking at the same size in Alden's?  

 

I would like to order the 920s, but none of the local stores stock the sizes that I would need to try on.

Stumbled across this suede NST boot from J. Crew for spring 2013.



Wonder if the white shoe in the background is Alden. White suede LWB on a crepe sole?

They had these up on the site for a few days a little bit ago. Nice looking boot.

Actually the bstrds had the pictures up for a few days.
But it was actually the chocolate suede/red brick sole Indy product page.

At least it was an easy return.

If they are 9D and you decide to part with them, let me know satisfied.gif

Funny, I jumped on the Americana bandwagon after seeing lots of Indys on blogs. Turned out I didn't like the aesthetic, but they were a gateway boot into other Aldens and Made in the USA products (not a bad thing at all).

Indy boots (403 or 405) are probably the most common Aldens I see here. I have the 405 on commando soles, I see it as a bad weather boot, and it works well for that purpose, but in normal weather, I'm in other shoes and boots from Alden.
