took a risk with the tankers on a 11.5C, little tight across the vamp.. anyone had success stretching, if even slightly? I can deal with as is, but just a tad more room would be cash

TIA

My brown CXL Tankers stretched a fair amount, most out of all my Aldens.

Asking for opinions here: When wearing jeans with the more jean appropriate Alden shoes - cuff or no cuff.

For me, it depends on the jean.  If it is a selvage jean that is long or looks good cuffed, then absolutely.  If it is a pair that can either go cuffed or not, I usually go cuffed as I really enjoy watching people turn and look at my feet.  Something about the cuffs makes the Alden's stand out.

glad to hear, I imagine these are going to be heavy in the rotation so they'll get the chance to stretch

I'm sure that she is in someway thankful to have such a well dressed husband though.

Perhaps CTYGGG can offer a tutorial on shoe photography for the rest of us.

While the boots are hard to see, that is to be expected when you capture the whole outfit.
I'm confident you'll get there, just give it time.

Sometimes I forget how peculiar our habit is.  Usually it's the wife who has to hide the expensive new shoes from the husband.  My sisters think it is really weird that I post pics of my shoes on the web for others to compliment.  They think its even weirder that I have an Uncle Mac (online that is, we have an "Uncle Mac" IRL as well.  Heck, they even think its weird that I have a website for discussing shoes.  They called it my "Shoe Blog".

I know a guy who bought a really expensive shotgun and hid it from his wife for about 6 months.  Used to work with a guy who had a separate secret bank account for gambling activities.  We all have our vices, shoes are much healthier than others.

My wife loves it when a box of shoes arrive. She just goes out and buys something for the house. My $570 deal on #8 LWBs actually cost $1070, with $500 of that going for new end tables. My argument that the old ones were supporting the lamps just fine did not work.

Thanks to Cathy at Alden DC for once again sending me two pairs for size comparison.  Loved the cigar shell more, but the 11.5E just fits better. I have four other Aldens in cigar, so one color 8 seemed the way to go.

looking good in cap toe boot, wear in good health, consider overshoes, salt to melt snow and ice is detrimental to leather
