I'm with you. It's the reason I dress the same when working in an office or at home, and it's why I wear shell to bars. It makes me feel good. I can feel my posture correct itself when I change from jeans into a suit. I walk differently. I converse differently. The way I feel when I dress well has a significant effect on my productivity with respect to work and women.

1) Are these worth the $535 (a pretty subjective question I'm sure, and one which is not meant to offend).
2) Is anything similar by Alden available now (from anywhere else), therefore avoiding the 6 month wait time? If yes, some suggestions would be great! Looking for a dark suede, laced boot.

I love these. I like them better than the chromexcel Roys, granted I've never seen either in person. I just think the rough out would look so good after some wear. If I had the funds I'd wait for these.

But my expereience has been just the opposite, as my unlined shell ptb's and unlined suede ptb's (all on barrie) are actually more snug than their lined counterparts. Go figure .........

 

This echoes what Joe at Alden DC told me last time I stopped by.

FYI, my LWB's are sized a half size down from TTS like most people, and they fit just right as I have a slightly wide and flat foot. My Barrie-lasted boots are a half size bigger but still D width, as I find Barrie-lasted boots to fit slightly narrower than the shoes.

Depends on your feet. I was at Alden on Friday and tried the unlined chukkas on. Jim at Alden San Francisco told me 'the house' (ie. Alden, sorta funny he calls it that) recommends either the next size up from Barrie or the same size but in a wider width.

 

I wear 8D in Barrie and tried on an 8E unlined suede Chukka and could feel the front of the shoe with my toes. 8.5D fit perfectly, so for me, Leydon last seems TTS as that's what I measure on the Brannock.

Thanks, finally got a hold of someone there.

Gents - was there a blue suede chukka on the Leydon last a few years back? If so, who did it? Thanks.

This is interesting - my 8.5D JCrew Cap Toe Boots are actually smaller in exterior dimension/circumference than my 8D LWBs. Both are Barrie last. 

 

Interior feels about the same.

 

I know a lot depends on the width of the welt and the LWB have a really wide welt. But still interesting that an 8.5D is be smaller than an 8D.

This seems to be a theme for Barrie lasted high boots. For example, my 11 D Tankers on the Barrie appear to fit similarly to 10.5 D and 11 C PTBs on the Barrie.
