Personally, I don't like it at all.

 

Don't really like the full-strap in general, and I own 3 LHS and 2-3 Tassels (third pair is en route, might not keep em [666 from BB]), and the full strap is sort of a cross b/w the two (penny loafer on aberdeen)

 

Maybe if it were #8, cigar, ravello or whiskey, but I definitly don't like it in suede, especially black suede.

^Much better

 

not sure I like black suede at all.

 

What would you wear them with?

 

That is a low price for Aldens, so I understand why they got your attention.

 

I'm probably the first guy in the 46905 posts that has tried to talk another out of buying a pair of Aldens. lol8[1].gif

I have to agree.

Hi folks, what size would you recommend on the Aberdeen last for a foot that measures 26cm in length and 10cm in width?

 

I'm contemplating a pair of shell tassel loafers.

 

For reference, I wear a size 41.5 in the Vass F last.

post #46909 of 87921
41.5 sounds like a 9D to me...

I wear 9D Aberdeen, and have the same width and I'm in between 41/42 in Vass apparently (according to their size chart).

You'd be:

9D Aberdeen
8.5D Barrie
8.5D Trubalance
9D Plaza
9D/E Leydon (Ledyon can run narrow)

Wow thanks! smile.gif Are you a TTS9D on the Brannock device too? Do you happen to wear any AEs, like perhaps on the 5 last?

Oh no...misunderstood. Would want them in tan, blue, or snuff, but NOT black suede. To me this is the closest Alden would get to a dress slipper

Tan, Blue or Snuff would be better.

 

Still not sure it would tickle my fancy though, but it doesn't have to in order for YOU to enjoy them.  They make some slipper that is on the Aberdeen that is essentially a tassel loafer with no tassel or stitching that some people consider a formal slipper.  Its not velvet, not sure if it needs to be.  I am admittedly not very familiar with formal slippers or opera shoes or whatever they are called.

The black suede full strap could be a cool summer shoe to wear with no socks and slim pants. However IMO if you want a shoe like that, go for a little more flair and just get a velvet slipper.

Haha no problem and yes I wear a 9D, the 5 is a little snug as my foot is a bit wider. Aberdeen will be good for you.

I wear a 41.5 on the F last as well. I am a true-to-size 8.5 D. I just got on a preorder for a pair of Aberdeen lasted Aldens in a 8.5 D.

Never thought I'd care much for the Whiskey LWB, as i have the rest of the available shell rainbow in them (Ravello, Cigar, color 8, and black), but recently pics like this one ^^^ have made me regret not picking up a pair when I had the chance.  Instead I have the wingtip bal on tremont in Whiskey.  It will have to suffice...
