DC & SF are; AoC & Madison aren't owned my Alden.

I was under the impression that Kathy had a bunch of them in stock.  Not sure what their stock is like now.  You should call and ask for all of their whiskey options in stock in your size.


I can't get enough from Tremont last. I have Leffot's Atoms and this last wears extremely well.

Good looking Whiskey SW.

My unlined snuff suede PTB from Unionmade is probably my tightest fitting Barrie shoe (same size as my other Barrie models).

Hi sevenfoldtieguy - rydenfan,

well - i wondered myself a bit - the fit in the 1/2 smaller Suede PTB was snuggy but definitely better than in my ususal size.

The unlined Shell No. 8 PTB i ordered yesterday at Alden DC i decided my usual Barrie size neverthless because Shell doesn't stretch that much.

cheerio

You also actually need a #8 LWB, a #8 PTB, a Suede Chukka, a boot with a commando sole, a Cigar Indy, and a Ravello LWB.
Get going!

Happy addiction.

Quick question, guys: I just picked up my first pair of LWB's on a Leydon last in a 8 D.  I wear a 7.5 D Indy boot.  Do you guys also have a lot of room in the toe area?  My big toe nails are right underneath the inside brogues, which are circled red in my pic.  I can stick my index finger behind my heel when my feet are scrunched forward. Thanks in advance for the help!


If you can comfortably stick a finger behind your foot, I believe they're at least 1/2 size too big. They Leydon obviously doesn't have as much toe room as the Trubalance, so you might be OK. I guess it boils down to how loose you like your shoes.

Great combo argentino, do you give your boots a rest during the warmer months?

Ask yourself if you want to look like a guy who dates girls, or a gentleman who accompanies woman? Get a nice two-piece navy blue suit to start with. I wear Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece Madison wool suits because I can walk into a 43R, and they're made in America. Old school ya know. Just like we shop and research cool shoes you can do the same with suits. Look good feel good I say.

I cannot tell you how much I disagree with this last comment, as it seems that you have that in the incorrect order. FEELING good is what makes you look good. It starts from within, not with the clothing.

 

Knowing this is what will allow you to date girls and then also accompany women, effortlessly.

Yeah, the J Gilbert boots are nice, and I know others like Leather Soul have done some shell models on the Plaza. I think LS even did a PTB on the Plaza at one point.
