If anyone is looking to acquire Alden flannel shoe bags (brand new), PM me. I simply don't need all of the ones I have. Thanks.

Both.... I paid in full in advance and TSM did refund me this morning. BTW, those were $675 a a pair way back in March
I see both #4 boots are still listed on their site as of this afternoon (search for "color 4"). They upped the price of the wingtip boots to $705. Hmmm....

Always a good day for cigar!

Epaulet cigar brixton with APC NS - both are getting broken in and comfortable.

Steel28, do you happen to own a pair of Alden boots on Trubalance last? I was wondering if I need to size TTS for Grant last (I went down half a size for Trubalance),

+1. I'm an 8.5D in my Alden of DC #8 captoe boots on the Grant last and a 8D in my Cigar Indy's on the Trubalance last, which I'm wearing today...

I've seen size up advice in either width or length - how does the grant heel to ball length compare to trubalance?

Sizing up either a width or length is true... The heel/ball length on grant is shorter than trubalance (I don't have exact measurements). I'm a "true" 9.5E in Barrie/Trubalance, and my Grant boots in 10E fit great. I also can (and do) wear 10D in Barrie and Trubalance.

if you go tts in the Grant last than you may have a wide foot and would be better off with a wider fitting.

First few steps in new cigar cap toe (plaza) from TSM 2nd's list. Had a crease on the right shoe when I gottem'. The plaza is such a refined, sleek last (in the world of orthopedics). Perfect for chinos and suits (unlike #8 barries) Ecstatic about these.

This is a good point... Retailers alternate between saying going down a half size in Grant (as well as Tremont) versus going true to size. If you have a wide foot (i.e. if you are measured for an E width in Barrie or Trubalance), you will be much better off getting an E width in Grant and Tremont (most retailers that stock Grant boots stock E sizes). I figured this out the hard way with a pair of Tremont color 4 Atoms - Though I can wear either 10D or 9.5E in Barrie, I couldn't really wear 10D in Tremont, and 10.5D may not have worked either. I'd imagine Grant has the same sizing issue.
