Anyone with more experience know what kind of a shoe town Chicago is? Live in the area, but can't say I know it very well. Definitely doesn't seem to cater to the Alden enthusiast, as we are seeing.

and that was quite possibly one of the most disturbing things I have ever seen, those shoes are being abused I'm calling SVU...

Chicago is specifically not a shoe town. There are several AE stores and the few mentioned above which stock Alden. You have several good BBs (the Rookery and MI Ave), Paul Stuart and a few other retailers (Neiman's, POLO), etc. The hidden/unknown gem is MorrisandSons. They sell John Lobb and Edward Green and have other good stuff.

I assume this also includes the TB last. If so, this is terrifically rare. Now if we only had Mac's feet we wouldn't have to care about lasts. biggrin.gif

Mac: You have posted before about the Aberdeen last and that you thought it - above all others - was a difficult fitting last (I'm paraphrasing but think I have it right). I'm curious as to why you think this?

If you don't mind sharing, how much do you size down on the barrie last?

Hope you don't mind answer this, but do you have flat feet? I'm curious how you could be a 9D on all the various sizes.

I actually wear 9.5D on all Alden's lasts. I have extremely flat feet. Plus, my left foot is slightly bigger than my right foot and it causes me some discomfort to wear 9 D.

Interesting....I too have extremely flat feet. I size down a 1/2 for Barrie and TB, and I'm TTS for the Plaza. Because of my orthotics, Hampton and Aberdeen are no-go's.

I was interested in getting Alden 974 which is in Hampton last I believe. I tried on 9.5 E and it fitted me fine but he shape of the shoes no longer look as good as 9.5 D and I had to gave up.

Sounds like the counselor is gently cross examining the general.  Can you handle the truth? biggrin.gif
