I really like this, My size too.  Trying to keep myself from buying more shoes, but I'm going to find out if they have another.

 

Edit: More Pics S'il-vous-plait?

Thats odd, do you remember why?

No.  I don't even know if that is really true.  But when I read that, people were speculating that Alden is really quirky about marketing in addition to just about everything else.

I asked her if she would put me down as pre-committed to intending to preorder the cigar Indy.

Doc,

 

Haven't seen you around for a few days.  Thought maybe you were trying to stay away from our bad influence and keep your mind off the idea of buying more shoes.  Whats the status on the Indy's from Frans Boone?  Did you pull the trigger?

No, these have not been confirmed by Alden. According to Yenni she received confirmations on repeat orders but no new makeups. the 6 eyelet is a new makeup, it is on the Barrie last with a commando sole. I am on the list for it as well and think it will be a great makeup.

I have a fit question on a pair of lwb #8. I tried on a pair of 7.5 and 8. The 7.5 was a bit snug in the width but fine in the length. The 8 felt fine but maybe to big. The salesperson measured my foot and told me that the 7.5 would be my size and i also did not need a wide fit. If I go with the 7.5 will they eventually stretch? I have read cordovan does not stretch like calf. If i go with the 8 i am worried about excessive creasing because they maybe to big.

It won't stretch per se, but will loosen up, which does tend to make it feel a bit larger over time.

how thick of a sock were you wearing? I am always amazed at how much the feel of the fit changes based off the sock I am wearing. I do match up particular thicknesses to particular pairs...

I've never received an email from the Alden DC "special make up" list either, other than the initial confirmation.

How snug? is the question?

 

And where are they snug?  What part of your foot?

Agree. I can literally wear either an 8D or 8.5D LWB equally well, depending on the thickness of the socks I'm wearing.

It is astounding how many people buy really nice shoes and wear cheap cotton socks. They also don't account for how much their feet expand during the day. Merino wool or cashmere/silk over-the-calf socks aren't a large expense after one pays over $700 for some Alden shell cordovan shoes.

Uniqlo 4 pair for $10 is better for me in terms of everything than any other socks I've worn like sozzi or panthrella however you spell it.

I LOVE those socks, actually I'm a fan of all their socks I've tried so far.

Which ones are they? Or is it any of them? Looks like they have several choices:
