I am not sure what lasts everything were in, but they all looked to probably be Barrie. And everything I picked up was available on display in 7.5 or 8, so I know us smaller footed folks might have some luck there right now. I actually almost went back the next day for the PTBs or the SWBs but thankfully restrained myself.

Thanks!  Do you remember what color the soles on the Whiskey PTBs were?  I assumed they were light antique and forgot to ask.

Wait a minute, cigar cap toe boots and LWB???  Maybe I should call them back!  Haha

Wow. Didn't somebody just report back that they had no plans for a cigar LWB anytime soon?

Cigar captoe are on the Grant and are a size 8 which not work for you. I tried like hell to squeeze my foot into that pair like a year ago.

 

The Whiskey short wings are on the Tremont last. I believe RTP owns them. I love how they look but feel like I would have a difficult time working them into my wardrobe as they seem slightly more on the dressy side. 

 

It is certainly worth a call but I would not hold out too much hope of finding something else.

Yea, I am an 8.5 on the Grant. The whiskey SWB would not work for me, either. A cigar LWB on the other hand (if true) is right up my alley.

^ I think that pair of cigar boots has been there a long long time and has kind of a cool olive tinge to it now from the lights.

I just called.  No cigar on the LWB!

I was in there recently and noticed no Cigar LWB, but did see some Cigar cap toe shoes to complement the boots (on the Grant, and of which I grabbed the 10.5e). There were a couple pair of the new Ravello LWBs still hanging around too -- at least one in a 10d at that time. It was the darker Ravello, so not that far off my Cigar LWBs in color. Also, there were some Whiskey SWBs there on the Tremont (again, as noted above). Sadly those were not available in my size. Kathy did mention that there may be a Whiskey cap toe brogued shoe in the near future.

Help out a fairly newbie. Do most of the Alden stores not update their websites regularly so if there is something I really want ( like a cigar LWB ) I should just call around frequently? smile.gif

Great thread!

What belt do you guys wear with your shell #8s?

Websites are practically useless. Call.

I even had a retailer tell me the other day via email that "We only sell models listed on our site". This was after a member told me he just bought a pair of exotic shells from them. It's a gamble.

Correct! These sites are in the ancient times. The only way is to watch this thread like a hawk and call around. Best of luck!

^ For casual, I think epaulet's saddle leather in brown works. For bus casual I have a BB belt in a burgundy tone leather that does the job.

I didn't ask how long any of the whiskey or cigar that they had had been in stock, so like budapest12 mentioned, judging by the pronounced olive hue of the cigar captoe boots (which I noticed as well), everything may have been there a while and maybe there are just a couple of each in random sizes left.

The official Alden stores all have awful websites and I would take whats shown on them as an idea of what's generally available, but not what might be available at any given time. It's definitely best to call them (or email them if you have a bit more patience).
