It would be remiss of me if I didn't mention the Ralph Lauren store just down the way a few blocks on Michigan Ave. Just look for the Mansion next to the Park Hyatt. It's RL's largest store and has a pretty amazing restaurant next to it called...you guessed it RL.
There are Alden's carried by the Brooks Brothers store on N Michigan Ave too.
Of course FedEx tried to deliver my TSM black shell captoe boots on Sat.! I'm hoping they try to re-deliver this afternoon! Tracking says estimated delivery on Tues., but I'm not sure why. Fingers crossed!
Easily my favorite pair of calfskin Alden's and my best fitting pair of shoes, regardless of material. I picked the up on eBay and they are sized 9.5 D/EE. I don't know what this means but I'll figure it out. I've emailed alden to see if they can help with the last and retailer but was hoping that some of the keen eyes from this site might recognize the last.
Nice cap toes and argyles shawnc. It all works to make a great combo.
Shawnc: The Shoemart's website is a great resource in determining which last an Alden shoe is made on. On the TSM website, just run a search for "Alden (insert model number here)" and, if TSM has it, it will come up and will identify the last and have numerous pics.
