post #47401 of 89847
Thanks to all.

Awhile ago, I got some excellent help from many members here at styleforum regarding how to buy Alden's at a pretty good price and what to look for in terms of lasts, the value of shell cordovan, etc.

All of this help was hugely helpful and completely changed how I buy proper dress shoes. And most important of all, it resulted in my having the best pair of shoes I have ever owned.

THANK YOU>

Guess what showed up today?:

 

 

 

 

Does have 6 eyelets. Very nice, unique. 

 

By the way, it seems to fit similar to the LWB, Barrie.

I'm really liking 'em so far I must say. 

 

They have an interesting profile which is different than a standard 5 eyelet Alden.

For some reason it looks more...

...Than other barrie lasted shoes.  Maybe they just need to be creased, or perhaps its the six eyelets.

 

Congratulations none-the-less, and as always, wear in good health!

My socks are what make them look a bit like that.

Not feeling those at all, but then again i'm not a fan of the medallion cap. Clean cap toe or death.
