I have half a dozen Alden's with similar loose stitchings. Alden will fix it for free if you ask. But you will have to pay for outbound shipping if you were in the US. I don't know what would be the policy for overseas claims.

I would recommend seeking advice from Tassel, politely suggest to have the repair done locally, but have Tassel reimburse you.

Do you know if they fix seconds?

+1 on the RL Lindricks at their presently reduced price point.

Same here, and I've been watching like a hawk.

Thanks guys for the help and suggestions.

Have emailed the dealer.

 

Now to find a good enough local cobbler.

I've been lusting over J.Crew's burgundy shell PCT boots labeled "Alden cap toe cordovan boots" for quite some time now. I can't exactly justify the purchase right now, but I've been keeping an eye on eBay and TheShoeMart for any deals. I also see now that I missed a coupon code last week that would've worked, but alas.

Regardless, if I do get a chance to snag these on the cheap(er), I'd like to know what my likely size is. My local J.Crew in Austin, Texas doesn't have any Barrie lasted boots for me to try on, so I was wondering if there are other stores I should be checking out. I'm an 8.5D/E in Allen Edmonds' 5-65 last and 9D/E in their 1-511 last, if that gives enough information for a best-guess.

Also, it seems that J.Crew's site lists some sizes as out of stock and some as backordered. Does this mean the former sizes won't be made again, or does that change? Maybe there's a comparable boot I should be looking at elsewhere?

Thanks for your help.


I know that "by George" carries Alden's in Austin. They'll have a Barrie last indy you can try on.

Good luck!

kentyman- - I'm in Austin as well.  By George on Lamar has some  Alden selections, as does Texas Clothier, and Johnstone Made to Measure.

All the best...

Thanks, guys! I'll head down to By George, etc., and start by trying on the 8.5D.

All: sorry, these aren't Aldens, but it's always nice to see what a little elbow grease will do for old shoes.

I agree with ReppTie...you are most likely an 8.5D.
