post #41956 of 91682

Was wondering if the Tremont last was TTS.  While the shape may be different, is the sizing similar to the aberdeen last?  Was interested in picking up a pair of the 974 (wingtip bal oxford).  I wear 10D in barrie and 10.5D in aberdeen.  Should I go with 10.5D in Tremont?  Thanks in advance!

Is it me or do you gents have some differently fitting Aldens in the same last as well? Some of my Aldens in the same last (Barrie in this case) fit more tighter than others. Nothing too alarming, but noticeable nonetheless. The NXL Indy Oxfords I wore today is the most noticeably loose fitting, even though they're all in the same size and width.



1. You are not alone my friend. Each pair of handmade shoes/boots fits a bit different, even if on the same last. Add to that shell v. calf v. suede v. CXL and you are basically guaranteed to have a shoe that fits slightly different.
2. Do you have an assistant that travels with you to take "in motion" pics? smile.gif

Is this crease normal on a brand new PTB?

Order both sizes and send one back. I'm 100% serious. The Tremont is a "tweener" inasmuch as some go TTS and some go 1/2 down.

No way to tell without ordering yourself. Half would do 10.5D, half would do 10D.

I don't think it is normal.  My guess would be that someone stuffed them in the box improperly.

 

I wonder which retailer it was?

i had a crease like this on my brand new Ravello LWB's from Alden SF. it was annoying, but i Reno'd them, then put some Saphir Neutral Cordovan Creme on them. brushed vigorously. it's still there but it's evened itself out with wear.

good looking whiskey lhs and gunboats, enjoy wearing

Some people demand pristine perfect and flawless new shoes that look like an Alden catalogue photograph. As they should considering their price. OMG. I bought a "new" pair of PTB's and they had obviously been tryed on several times. The right shoe quite a bit I thought. Luckily it was the correct size for me. They immediately felt comfortable so I bought them. I also didn't want to wait however long it would take to get another pair. Horweens supply problems not withstanding. I am want to fawn over new shoes like a lot of fellow forum contributers. Ultimately they're just really nice gloves for your feet. "Wear them in good health".
