You should consider getting those pants hemmed; they look way too long.

Actually the pants the way I am bent over makes it look that way but they only really have a half break to them

i'd be hesitant to implicate someone like that. i'd like to believe steven and his crew have more integrity than that.

I could do without this......and the video you posted of the guy touching himself while caressing his hanover cordovan shoes.

Also of note, neither video has anything to do with alden shoes or this thread

I do not know Steven but from my understanding he is not only a retailer, but a business owner, and I have not read a bad word about Leffot.

The "Stores" link does not allow you to search by Zip Code, and there all 50 states listed on the pull down menu but several states have no authorized retailers.

Absolutely agree on Leffot. Steven is a great guy and one of the best I have dealt with

Sizing opinion guys... Looking at the straight tip on the Hampton last... Against popular opinion I have seen on the thread, I find this last in a D is a tad wide, physically and aesthetically for me. I usually wear a D width on most lasts, but take an E on the narrower Aberdeen last, which fits perfectly. I was thinking of getting the Hampton in a C width... You guys think that will balance out that last for me?

Only one way to find out.  If you can, buy both and return one.

I actually do not mind not having direct access to people who run the companies that I like to puchase wares from. If I like their products I, by extension, usually have a positive view of them. It can only go down hill if they get involved. A typo or a choice you do not agree with and wham! You lose a customer. You cannot please everyone.

i think it could go both ways... Old school service suggests a personal touch could go a long way.  But you are correct, if you don't know how to communicate well, you open the door to trouble.  I personally think it would be nice to see the Alden CEO reach out to his most reliable customers.  I'm not losing any sleep over it though.

I think you are making a real big assumption here. That's more than a bit of a stretch especially since you are responding to a post about a specific retailer. A retailer with a stellar reputation. I can't imagine you intended to disparage the guy but it's important to think before responding on public forum about an incident of which you have no first hand knowledge. A comment like that can have very real consequences when posted on a public forum in a thread with 4+ million views.
