Ahab if you want to part with your split toes, and they might fit an 11-11.5d, I'd be interested.

Thank you sir. I laud your opinion and sentiment. My point being only that there still is a level of appropriate dress required in certain circumstances. A well fitted anything will enhance your deportment in most situations. Confidence, confidence, confidence! My dad always told me that manners and etiquette are the best cloths a gentleman can wear.

+1 Recently I started getting my shirts made and it makes a difference in how I feel in that I'm comfortable, not fidgeting etc. It simply enhances how I already feel.

Does anyone have an alternate phone number for The Shoe Mart or anything? They don't seem to be answering their main line at all today.

If you dig around on the website you can find the number to their B&M store as opposed to the web number. I have called their before and they have given me a representatives direct #. In case you couldn't tell, patience is not my strong suit smile.gif

I do. Southern Nevada gets way too hot for anything more than suede through June-August.

And even that's a stretch.

I almost acquired a pair but I had already exceeded my monthly Alden allowance. Which last is most comparable to the tremont? Did you size down or was it tts? I

always get a little gun shy purchasing a last I've haven't tried on before.


I felt the same way when I ordered the whiskey wt bals.  I probed the sizing issue and fortunately went with my barrie size.  I'm not really sure why there are those who go TTS.  My barrie size fits wonderfully.  If it were any bigger my foot would come out (heel slip).  Tremont is different and wouldn't be my first choice in Alden lasts, but I like it.

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

Good looking Whiskey SW.

Much thanks! Sometimes I wonder though, if I should have been more patient and waited for the LWB.  As it turned out, they were widely available about a month later.  A little variation is nice though; I have all of the other shell LWBs.

My tremont shoes are TTS (10E). Same with my grant shoes. I've tried Tremont in my Barrie size (9.5E) and have not been successful. I think a good rule is if you have wide feet, go TTS in in Tremont/Grant, if you don't have wide feet, you can try to go down half a size.

RTP, thanks so much. These are certainly great looking. How do you wear them mainly? On one hand they are a dressier style but the color and edge trim are a bit more casual.

Regarding the Tremont last, I am a 9D and wear 8.5D in both Barrie and Tremont. I can also wear 8.5D in Grant, but it's just a bit snug.

I have the same shoes - I wear them with a light blue suit I have (mainly in the spring summer) and occasionally with also chinos in the spring and summer. It probably could go well with some greys too. I have not worn them with denim. For me it is in the category of an objectively great shoe that nonetheless gets less wear than some of my others.

Disagree. In the words of the great Billy Crystal, "It's not how you feel; it's how you look. And you, dahling, look MAHVELOUS!"

That's me as well. 9D in Grant and Plaza and 8.5D in Barrie and Tremont lasts. I'm not sure how this is possible but Tremont last is THE most comfortable last out all of Aldens I ever tried.
