That's hilarious I almost pulled the trigger on the boots? I elected to wait for the next order to get an 8.5d. good luck with the boots, post pictures for the unfortunate people (namely this guy) who aren't privileged to own a pair.

Am I the only one with different crease patterns on each foot? My feet are drastically different sizes but the creases aren't similar. Wondering if that happens to anyone else and if so, does it bother you? It's not a bother to me, I enjoy wearing the shoes and only notice it when I brush them after wearing.

I welcome the outfit pics. Those PTBs (whiskey I assume?) are awesome.

FWIW.  I know a guy (Actually he was the proprietor of a small shoe store that sells Aldens) who replaced the ortho heel with something else when it wore out.  It changed the way he walked and consequently caused a second set of creases on his Indys.

Yep, the PTBs are whiskey. I only need ravello now, which is harder than I thought. Well #4 too if you want to count that. How many of you guys have Abeerdeen last? How do you like it compared to the typical Barrie?

Thanks.

#8 Captoe Boot for JGilbert, Plaza

AppleMark

Very, very nice! This has me almost regretting the fact I own the J.Crew #8 pct boots, although they are one of my favorites. Dilemma, dilemma...

Another sizing question here, sorry for that.
Could any of you tell my how the Grant last compares to the modified last? Size up 1/2 or 1? Thanks!

happens to me too. i think my left foot is smaller than my right, so the creasing is usually more pronounced on the left. what REALLY bugs me is that tiny crease immediately behind the toebox--forward, even, of where my toes normally break. happens more on my left shoe than my right. ughhh.

Has anyone sized down a full size on chromexcel boots on the barrie last (Roy boot, Leffot plain toe chromexcel boot, etc.) to account for stretching? If so, are you happy with them after they've broken in and stretched out?

I received an email yesterday indicating that Alden prices are about to go up $20-$40 per pair. I apologize if this was addressed upthread, but it's the first I heard of it. The increase will be effective at the end of the month.
