I agree that Alden's barrie captoe boots seem to run a bit narrower than other barrie shoes. As a result, I am selling two pretty nice cordovan captoe models - check my sig. My cigar captoe boots in grant 10E are among my best fitting Alden shoes, so when it comes to captoe boots, I am going to try to order that last and size. Alden NY, DC, Shoemart, etc all offer captoe boots on grant, so I may try to get that in color 8 soon.

uncle nice #8 captoe.

I sent oki a couple emails a few weeks ago to confirm if he had indeed changed the size on my Pre-order late 2011/early 2012. He did say I could still change the size but no reply back after emailing him to do so. Hope that`s all good happy.gif

I'm getting ready to place a couple of orders for 2013 and am debating between a blue suede wingtip and a blue suede chukka.  If anyone has pictures of either of these shoes out in the wild, I'd love to see them.  The pictures I've found on google are just of the shoe, but I'd really like to see how they look on with jeans or khakis.

 

Thanks!

other than LS, is anyone stateside stocking a 6 eye chukka in #8 or black?

The man speaks the truth - the Alden for BB PTB in Color 8 is the single best, most versatile (use range: jeans to business suits / color range: matches everything) Alden shoe made.

Is this possible? How?

Yes - Cobblers at BNelson Shoe in NYC. I'm sure other competent cobblers can assist you as well.

Proof that balmoral shoes can work very well with jeans.

Need help on my ravello longwings. I feel like from the beginning as soon as flexed them there was a discoloration at the top crease, where the dye sort of moved away. Anyway, ideas on how to make these look better? Should I just use some brown wax? I do live in a dry climate. Is this something I can fix or are we already talking about sending them back for reconditioning? They are only a couple of years old.

Agreed, this looks great. An exception to my general belief that bals and jeans can't work. The pop of whiskey against the denim is a really good combo.
