Do you mean are the second in the store the same as in the irregular emails? I think they have more in store than they put in the emails. It's still hit-and-miss (I didn't find anything when I was there), but my impression is that you have a better chance of finding something of interest in-store.
A while back we discussed how close Alden Cigar shell was to Allen Edmonds brown shell. My Allen Edmonds arrived last week and here's a side by side photo with my Alden Cigar shell Chukka's. I really can't see any difference IMHO. Those of you that were looking for Cigar shell belts. My AE belt also arrived and it too is the same as an Alden for a lot less. You have to custom order the brown shell belt from AE. It's not listed as an option, but you can custom order it. It will cost you $10 more for the custom order but its worth it. The buckle it comes with is nickel and nice quality.
If anybody is interested I have a new pair of Cigar LWB that I'm considering selling , they have never been worn outside just tried them at home but unfortunately I need an E width and these are 9.5D, they're new just 2 weeks old.
Sorry if I'm breaking any rules but since this is the Alden thread I thought there was no problem letting you guys know.
I'm sorry - I really hate to be that guy but either of these posts can get you banned. I appreciate trying to give a heads up to the Alden community, but create a classified ad and stick it in your signature. Posting FS stuff in here will incur Fok's wrath.
Thanks for the tip. Just checked...closest they had was a LW in whiskey size 8E which would be too big for me. 8D is my best size and is already pushing it for me in some Alden Barrie shoes. Let me know if anyone has any others in 8D or close.
