Damn, I wish I could wear cordovan LHS. (I can wear the unlined suede). I am going to try the BB unlined version. Or I may just have to kill my feet in a regular pair.

Wigglr, at 22, wearing LHS will make you stand out from your peers in a good way. I'm 28, I wish I started wearing Alden shoes earlier.

The LHS is probably the only Alden shell model where whiskey would be my first choice. I have whiskey (9C) and unlined color 8 from BB (9C). I actually like the fit of the BB slightly better. Getting an exotic shell LHS in a C width can prove to be a difficult task. nod[1].gif

I would also still have the ravello LHS but it was defective, and the retailer had no replacements in my size. Oh well ....

Gentlemen,

 

I have a quick question.  I wear a 10D in the 901 (Hampton) and am thinking about getting the 4060 boot (Grant).  Should I stick with 10D or go with 9.5D?  Perhaps 9.5E?

Please help me. What is LHS. I see so many 3 characters acronyms WRT Aldens shoes. Maybe someone will provide me with the proper interpretation.

Leisure Hand Sewn, the style of shoes depicted in the above conversation.

The big ones are

LHS = leisure hand sewn = penny loafer where the strap does not go across the entirety of the shoe
LWB = long wing blucher = wing tip where the wing extends to the back of the shoe
SWB = short wing blucher = wing tip where the wing ends halfway down the shoe
PTB = plain toe blucher = plain shoe with open/blucher lacing

I agree with this, but I think this is also achieve with my Alden offerings that I have. Regardless, the LHS has grown on me a lot. Especially a pair of Whiskey, which could be great for summer

I say if your 10 Hampton is snug, go 10.5 on the Grant. If you've got a little play, stick with 10.

This is sound advice.
