could you expaned a little on what sizes you take in other lasts and what you got in the leydon.

 

thx

Both barrie and aberdeen suit me well, and I only have one pair of shoes in each of these colors (cigar and ravello in LWB and whiskey in wingtip oxford).

Thanks in advance...

nephew,
I would get all three, if only one go for the ravello nst on the Aberdeen last. you have indicated that the Aberdeen last works well for you. get it before you lose it!

Contrary to what others said, cigar is arguably the most versatile of the three options you have listed (whiskey, ravello, cigar). I would also argue that the barrie last is more versatile than the aberdeen.

After lurking for sizing advice (thanks), I thought I would register to show my recent Alden irregulars. I had to get the right camera angle to show the small side impression on the 8 Barrie Chukka that came today. I have had the Aberdeen Cap Toe for a bit and really couldn't find anything wrong. Alden can bypass the retailer and just send these "mistakes" directly to me in the future. Both fit nicely, but I expect the Hampton to be the best last for me. I'm not sure if I would go down a half size on other Barrie boot styles though.

They are on my list also. I am on the list at TSM to get them whenever they can get a run done.

I ordered just the buckle part for $275. I'm traveling most of the summer and may not get it replaced for some time, but wanted to give an update.

If my math is correct, you just dropped $700 on a belt. Don't tell any relatives. They may have you committed.

Looking sharp & excellent work bringing them back to life. I really like the filtered & unfiltered pics in one post, it's like having your cake & eating it too. Carry on.

Forgive the iPhone pics, Ravello LWB.

How do you get your iPhone pics to post high-Rez? I can't figure out how to do it

These look awesome. Makes me think that with just these two pairs, and one captoe boot, one's Alden collection could be totally practical and complete. If only the addiction didn't set in...
