finally got aboard - maiden voyage of my #8 chukka ... I can't stop looking at them today.  I'm normally an 11E in an AE 5 last, and went with a 10.5E on these (was fitted in the NYC Alden store).  Do these require a bit of a break in period?  I'm not used to shell, and they seem a bit stiff, but are modestly comfortable.  I'm assuming once I sink into the cork bed it should feel roomier.

 

well, enough talk i guess, here's a crappy shot I took this morning:

Yes sir. Bought 'em to get me over $175 for free shipping and ended up loving them.

Pebblegrain is sharp. I like these very much, except for the pull tab, but that is easily removed.

I agree.

Here they are on their maiden voyage today.

Anyone know anything about these very cool black plain toe boots:

 

 

http://www.inventorymagazine.com/updates/alden-plain-toe-black-boots.html

 

 

Site says "available at Fott," which appears to be some sort of Russian online place.  I'd be very interested if the boots were available elsewhere...

Right, that's a Russian store that started selling Alden not so long ago. The prices are insane though. ($770 for that particular boot)

AoC has a somewhat similar model on Barrie w/ commando sole. TSM stocks something in that spirit too.

Thanks.  I didn't do the price calculation, but figured it would be something crazy -- and in any case am not prepared to order from that site.

 

The AoC and TSM boots are nice, but I really like the contrasting eyelets against the black on this other one, and am interested in trying the crepe sole.  Hard to find a makeup like this...

Epaulet french blue pants?

So I've hit a bit of a dilemma... I had an order in for my size Alden LWBs in Color 8.  However, it got canceled due to a flap between the store and Alden.  This shoe was going to fill my wardrobe for daily wear (typically nicer "business casual") as well as the infrequent occasions I wear a suit.  

 

At this point, I'm considering a Color 8 LHS or LWB, or possibly even stepping outside of Alden (in the same price range).  Any thoughts would be appreciated.

 

(Also, I wear 7.5D in Barrie... would I wear the same in the Van last?)

The 975 is a main staple to any wardrobe... Why not just buy it directly from Alden via one of their company stores (DC or San Francisco) or is your size the issue?  I believe thats a style they readily keep in stock (unless the rumors about a shell shortage that have been circulating on the forum have come to bear reality).
