All that being said, everyone's foot is different so YMMV. I hope this didn't confuse your issue however perhaps try on a 9D as well and see if that works for you?

Thanks for the advice guys.

Sadly, moving to Australia means I've not got any hope of trying on Aldens in a shop. I guess we'll see when they arrive whether or not going half a size down is right for me. Nervous times ahead!

Everyone talks about how indentations or gouges can be smoothed out of shell with a deer bone or spoon.  (not just evening out the color, fixing the indentation in the surface of the shell made by a scratch.)

 

Anyone have before/after pics? or link to youtube video?

For a scratch, a deer bone is not really necessary. Watch this video all the way through to see that:

I've seen that before, but thanks for posting.

 

That is a light surface scratch.  I'm asking about one that leaves an indentation that remains after the color is smoothed out with brushing.

thinking about having an extra set of eyelets (or even doing it myself) added to a pair of chukkas to add a little extra snugness. i've seen mention of this before in this thread, anyone actually done it? a picture of the finished product would be awesome so I could get an idea of spacing.

You might just want to get the AE Dundee  if you're looking for a 3 eyelet chukka -

Does have 6 eyelets. Very nice, unique. 

 

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