Wow thanks! This who certainly feels a lot more sturdier than me AE MAcneil (cordovan leather). I've always looked at Alden's as just a "tad" bit better than Allen Edmonds...perhaps I should start exploring more...

When I emailed them about this they said dark, but that was last spring.

You may have deduced this already from the link supplied above, but it is the 903 that's the model number. You'll see people referring to some of the more classic models by number, e.g., 990, #8 plain toe blucher or 403 & 405
for Indy boots of different leathers. Welcome to the Alden thread.

FYI, Leffot has several restocked LWB and Indy models up.  The alpine LWB is listed as commando, but it's plantation in the picture.

im curious if my natty indys are in this order or not.. for people who have pre-ordered with leffot before, how long does it usually take to hear from them if you pre-ordered?

 

thanks in advance

I'm a newbie on Alden and haven't own any.
I am seriously going to buy Alden wingtip boot-Barrie Last and i need your suggestion on size.

My RedWing Moc Toe boot size is 8 1/2 D - width is perfect, length is slightly too long, but still all right. (8D is too tight).
My Wesco JobMaster boot size is also 8 1/2D - width is perfect, length is the same as above.
My White's Cougar boot size is also 8 1/2D.
My Nike sneaker size is 9US.

Please suggest what size of Alden - wingtip boot(Barrie last) i should take. The shop doesn't offer E width.

Thank you for your generous suggestion.

Some modified last p0rn, just got home so no sunshine but needed to get some photos in. Should just pony up the cash and get the cigar version as well. The modified black ones seem like an Anatomica makeup with all eyelets and unlined shaft.

The black boot with speedhooks is barrie lasted AF60 for comparison

Thanks kindly.

Here are some phone pics of both the Whiskey Chukka's and the Color #4 Captoes I picked up.

The #4 color looks fairly accurate in the photo but the Whiskey is darker in person.

when people say that "lasts" do not work for them, what do you mean? I have some of the Alden Barrie last that seem to work well, however when I wear Grant last my toes seem to get pinched (there is room, however I think I walk a bit on the inside of my shoe). do I need to always be a Size "e" or is it something with the last??

Most likely it's the last.

Unionmade has several new models up, including a calfskin chukka on a goodyear wedge sole, an alpine grain / loden green saddle on double waterlock, an a brown alpine grain longwing on double waterlock....

I would note that two of the crepe soled models they released a couple of weeks ago (color 8 wingtip boot and the black alpine grain longwing) are almost sold out. Someone must like those crepe soles
