Thanks for the words and info RTP. You've got a pretty eye so I'm going with Hampton.

Looks like Alden's model 911 on the Hampton last in tan.

Confirms RTP's suggestion. Thanks for the input and link zbix. Much appreciated.

Old article about Horween.

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.

It is very close to downtown - 10 minute cab ride, if that.  I hope they allow you to go in.  That would be very interesting.

 

Maybe you could hijack a few hides.  Ravello please.  Failing that, whiskey will do.

I think Fedex Home delivers on Saturday but not on Monday or something funky like that but dont quote me on it.

MoneyWellSpent, much thanks for all of your time with the sharing of your research/knowledge of the industry and process.  I appreciated all of it.  How cool would it be to teach a class... "The Industrial Revolution, Shoe Construction, and Subsequent fashion Trends

 

All the best my friend...

That could be a possibility. Dangit! I guess once 3:30ish passes and I don't have a call from the receiving dept. it'll be official.

 

edit: you are correct, ryden. Tues thru Sat. I guess one more day won't kill me.

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.

nephew,
nice combo

my boots are scheduled to come today. I believe many of their drivers are independent contractors and so deliveries vary.
