best bet is to call them. they can tell you while on the phone what they have in your size.

 

afterwards, call all three alden stores and check with them. you might get lucky

 

good luck!

If you are looking for the plain toe bluchers, You might want to try giving the Alden shop in DC a call. I was in there yesterday and they had the PTB in whiskey and cigar but not sure on all the sizes (I know they had the whiskey in my size but I resisted the urge).

Very nice...I think I'd pick a shoe first, then decide on clothing.

Try a little shoe cream/polish if leather looks too dry for you, that leather takes it very well. Boots look good, enjoy!

Color 8 brogues. The Leffot X Antique longwings have more of a "brown" tone than the other two, which are more eggplant

Mac - those were a custom order, right? Honestly I don't think Alden has made a better black cordovan boot

One of the best I've seen … but it's not just the boots, it's how you wear them … inspiring as always. Cheers!
