You and me both.  I prefer to go in for a fitting before ordering online.

What size are you in Alden? If you're an 8.5 or 9, I'll send you some Stows in what I think your size would be ....a UK 8....if you cover shipping. I have three pairs.

Other option is to call Leather Soul. They are in Beverly Hills and they just got some Stows in stock.

Sierra Trading Post usually has Tricker's Burfords for around $350 if you wait for a coupon.
They're on the 4497 last which is the same as used on the Stow. For reasons unclear to me, they have a warning that they Burfords run small.
Take anything you read on an STP description with a huge grain of salt.
STP return shipping is pretty cheap.

They also have a Stow lookalike called the Langston. They're *not* on the 4497. I think they're on the 2298 which is a more TTS last.

Grahame Fowler in NYC carries Tricker's. Haberdash in Chicago too.
And of course Leather Soul.

It looks like they've finally figured out what to do with those shell samples and scraps.  I knew it was just a matter of time.  This looks like one of the biggest wastes of money I've seen around here in a while. facepalm.gif  Watch the little video... all they are doing is "wrapping" the money and credit cards with the cordovan that's been cut into a 'T' shape.

These things are usually sold out as well. Leffot has been selling these "Fold" wallets for some time now. I actually like te concept and could see myself using one in place of my money clip but it's not worth $95 to me. I think I could buy a piece of shell and make my own for that price.

I own them both, and the unlined BB version is definitely more snug.

Never truer words spoken. Both are Van Lasted. The only Copley LHS I've seen is Union's Chromexl.

I have used a fold for the past couple of years. They sell pretty briskly. I wanted to switch to a slim front wallet and figured this was a good way to transition. I'm not wedded to them, though, I could see myself getting a different kind of wallet soon.

Strange that's I've somehow missed them then.  Glad you both enjoy them.  I suppose it's proof that you should always give it a shot when you come up with an idea or invention, no matter how simple it seems.

Sure they're right for somebody else.

I thought that Alden had raised their retail prices??

Haven't bought a pair in a while, but my last pair was $780 when all was said and done and I had free delivery.
