At any rate, after - what? five? - pairs of shoes, I have finally determined my proper size on the barrie last. I don't live near a brick-and-mortar store, so I've had to buy shoes via mail order to try them on. And, of course, by the time I've worn them a bit to figure out if they fit, they're creased and I can't return or exchange them. So...I've spent quite a bit of money trying to figure out my size. But I've done it, by jove! And the first pair of Aldens that I will own that actually fit are, in my opinion, the most beautiful make-up Alden makes and, frankly, the awesomest shoe of any brand. They are...color 8 LWB with antique edge from Leffot. Happy day. Oh, happy day. Thank you for listening.

I will report back on whether the sale price is honored.

I just got an email saying my order has shipped.

Sale price honored?

Thanks, man.

Greetings Guys,

I've been eyeing the Indy boot for a while now and I just want to try to get the best deal out there. Would any stores (that sell wides) ever have any sales? I really doubt it, but I thought I'd ask. 7.5 E is a tough size to find, but might as well pay the extra for the perfect fitting shoe.

Regards,

You poor, shoe-deprived soul...  it's a shame you have nothing with which to cover your bare feet!

BTW, your photos of your 9016 convinced me to go with that model. Brooks Brothers on Madison said they didn't have any of their version and had no idea when a restock would come in, so 9016 it is. .

I actually had that exact same question...  which model should I go for, the Alden stock perf cap toe bal (9016) or the made for BB version.  I believe it is an issue regarding the snap last versus the Hampton.

 

Does anyone have a strong feeling one way or the other??  SevenFoldTG?  Uncle??  Thanks in advance...

I like TSM, bought a lot of stuff from them. However...getting a shipping notice does not always indicate you are getting the item. Several times for Alden's ends list, and Alden belts IO've got shipping notice, and then a day or 2 later I get a notice item was not in stock. I hope everyone that got shipping notices gets their items. Pretty rare to get discounts on Aldens from TSM from website so congrats to all!

See Ya,
Steve

Haha its cool. I would have been spending money that I shouldn't be spending anyway. I'm happy for all the people who got the sale price honored. I'm totally jealous of you guys.

I know SFTG LOVES the snap last.  I have no experience with it, so can't help much, but I really like the hampton for this style of shoe.

 

Buy both return 1?

 

Or get the BB 30% off when the next corporate event takes place.  I think I remember them having one shortly after xmas last year...

Those are beautiful. They're on my radar and probably my next purchase.
