Uhmm... According to this the Grant is larger than the Hampton.  Are you sure with this advice?

I have Aldens on almost every last they make. That chart is of questionable usefulness, e.g., the Leydon Last (5th from the left) is perhaps the smallest last they make.

^ I was the one who created that chart, and while it was just meant to be a generalization, I can tell you from personal experience that my advice should hold true. However, the Grant can be a tweener depending on your feet.

Well, I can't argue with that!!!  The Hampton definitely isn't too snug, so I will go with my normal size.

 

Thank you for your help!!

Great looking chart.

 

 

Thanks for taking the time to create and share it with the rest of us.

Hampton, Grant and Tremont are difficult to size without trying on yourself. I need to size up in all three lasts from Barrie (which is like the Alden reference last); others do not

The chart is a good reference tool, particularly for a new Alden fan. And, even if it doesn't always hold true for me, kudos to REguy for constructing it. nod[1].gif

^ Will they accept returns with that crease on the PTB?
