which version you obtain, you will not be sorry. you should have a wt in your wardrobe

Yes sir Uncle.  The metal eyelets on the BB intrigue me.  My whiskey version of the 974 (on tremont) is a very comfortable fit. I would be happy to acquire either.

I have both versions in color 8. The BB version, by virtue of its last, is sleeker, but the factory version, by virtue of its double leather sole, is more of a workhorse.

The double leather sole is ideal for my ailing knees.  Never imagined how comfortable a (double) leather sole could be.  I absolutely love them.

No experience with that particular shoe, but years back I picked up a pair of whole-cuts from Barney's.  Coop branded, made in Italy like those, and fit TTS.

Anyone have a good rec. for getting a couple pairs of Aldens topy'd around wall st? Not really an alden specific question but I figure y'all are pretty careful about who you let handle them...

Thank you.

I tried Need Supply for the snuff suede LHS right after I read your original post, but it seems as if they have only size 8 in stock (I'm 10.5D). I am the same size in Van, Aberdeen, Tremont, Barrie, and Marlow. I tried to size up for Plaza, but they were too big and not wide enough. If you hear of any other stockists for the Snuff, please let me know...

 

How on earth is this possible?  I wear a 8.5D Barrie, 9E Leydon and a 9.5D Aberdeen (Brannock is 9.5D Left/9.25D Right).  

 

Are my feet mutants? :O

Congrats on the purchase and, of course, wear in great health!

Thanks for all the kind words and well wishes folks! With all the talk of limited availability of rare shell colors, I knew I had to jump on these. Looks like the rain has stopped and Friday is my conference call day so I will be brushing the crap out of these and hopefully snap a few more pictures.
