11D in Trubalance should be spot on. Not sure about the 11E Barrie.

Thanks for the response, I am pretty lucky to have O'Connors here in Calgary as I was able to try on the Barrie last PTB and Longwing and find my correct size. Unfortunately they had only a size 8 in the 975. 

 

I just emailed Knapps Shoes and they said: "Alden does not allow us to carry the cordovan products.  Not sure why because they have poor representation in Canada.  They only allow us to carry the orthopedic styles like the Indy boot." 

 

 

 

 

 

Looks like my next hope is a % off one item Haberdash sale, I think they offer free shipping to Canada.

I agree, I'm 12D in Trubalance and Barrie.

Disagree. PTB presents a cleaner look with less stitching/overlapped leather. It is also not ubiquitous (just look at all of those square toed silly Aldo/whatever-other-mall-brand most men wear: they're all dovers).

But, if it is Alden to Alden comparo...well...to each his own.

NAMOR, are you referring to the glazing that Alden applies to their shell? The Alden finishing process might be proprietary but it's not so unique that it can't be replicated. There are no secrets in commerce, just licensing fees and copy rights.

If you have information on how Alden finishes their shell or know someone who does, please share. I would love to know how they distinguish their shell finishing from everyone else in the business.

I'm partial to Jjampong, (spicy seafood soup) especially in the dead of winter. Bulgogi and Kalbi are always a nice treat though.
