is anyone using overshoes on their Alden boots? I am just trying to understand if they fit over the larger sole.

I'm currently wearing Tingley's 1900 in size XL for a pair for shell boots on the trubalance last in size 10d, so just size up and should fit.

Stopped in there the other day, but didn't see anything special in your size.

Did see a 10.5 cigar chukka, a size 13 whiskey PTB. Also a very dark Ravello chukka in 12. They had
three 11.5 J crew #8 captoes which looked great. Ask for Bob if you call.

How does Shoemart get pairs of JCrew boots...?

I think he was referring to TSM seconds inventory.

So, now on to better problems to have, namely deciding between a whiskey PTB and ravello chukka.

nephew,
go with the method on the two eyelet chukkas to ascertain that the fit works for you. if the fit works for you, you should, keep the ravello chukkas. it is more versatile then the whiskey ptb

Exactly. I've seen just about all of the J Crew make ups on the seconds shelves at one time or another.

On the main sales floor they have a new black calf chukka with the contrasting antiqued edge trim that looked very nice!

nephew,
as i said in the prior post keep the chukkas if they fit properly. the exotic colors are difficult to get, i would also keep the whiskey if it makes sense to you

I'm guessing the shoes didn't pass factory inspection and were never sold to J Crew, ending up at TSM

All of Alden's seconds are sold through TSM. They get every pair of Alden's seconds from any of the other makeups that are done for other vendors. For example, they will get seconds for Leather Soul, Epaulet, Brooks Brothers, etc. TSM's store in CT has a whole section of seconds on display and (when I was there at least) there are many more in the back.

With calf it is not a big deal, with cordovan it should not be a big deal but spotting can occur.

J Crew has a pair of black LWB's with exposed eyelets that I like but I do not wear black that much. I wearing a pair of black pebble grain LWB's today though. The Shoemart has a pair of dark brown LWB's. I think these would be very versatile. I have a darker pair of calf LWB's that I love. I purchased them from Leather Soul a couple of years ago.

Here are my new dark brown long wings in calf that I got from Leather Soul. Both are brand new in the pics:

I hope this helps.

Love the dark brown model. Never seen that color before in an Alden.
