the good news is - assuming you paid a fair price - you should be able to recoup most of your money by reselling. if you patient and/or a good lister, get all of it back

X2, I'd try an insert of some sort first, plus wool socks, and see if you can manage.

Nice collection of captoes. nod[1].gif

I like captoes. I have captoes - blucher or bal, or both - in all shell colors, save for whiskey. But I don't want a whiskey captoe.

The Alden 2259, ravello captoe blucher on the Aberdeen, is one of my favorites. It has been awhile since anyone has offered it, as far as I know.

Agreed. A full insole should quite easily remedy a 1/2 up-size error, particularly in a boot.

Actually, I meant what shell model are you waiting for.

The cognac boots are nice.

Happens every time... When I write off any particular shoe model, Mac posts pics that make me want to buy them. These NSTs look great.

This is my size too and it's pretty rare that these crop up anywhere. Unfortunately the commando sole ruins this specific model for me. And are these from and SF member? They have REguy's size chart up there!

I'll take a few with a proper camera this weekend. Those were (obviously, heh) sneaked at work with my phone

FYI, Tassels HK is hosting an Alden trunk show this weekend and is apparently launching two "rare cordovan" models. Knowing Tassels these will likely be sold out to local customers long before they are available internationally, but guys may want to get in touch with Wallace or check the online site over the next few days.

They were a Leffot makeup,

http://leffot.com/2011/09/29/alden-x-leffot-day-tripper-boot/

 

As a side note there is also a Ravello cap toe makeup by Tassels HK, but it is on the barrie and has a closed heel.

 

On the other hand, I have narrowed my next Alden purchase down to two and I want your guys' opinion.

 

It's either:

 

Ravello LWB with crepe sole

 

1000

 

Cigar Cap Toe Boot with Commando sole,

 

1000

 

 

I'm currently leaning towards the cigar cap toe boot.

The cigar captoe boot on commando soles are one of Alden's best makeup. That ravello photo looks good but at the end of the day it is a strange makeup to put on crepe

I suppose it all depends on what you already have?
