Here's a nice article on tracking down some Alden's in Chicago:

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.

Haberdash also carries Alden.

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!

Lucky my boots have been sitting 20 minutes from house for the last 48 hours.

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.

Interesting and informative read. I'm guessing my wife wouldn't be too thrilled with that. Might have to play this one by ear.

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.
