I am very happy that we seem to be the same size, my wallet on the other hand may not be so thrilled. Either way I will be keeping a close eye on what you might end up clearing from your closet in the future!

You're gonna need luck if you are Ryden's size! He is quick! Trust me.

In terms of comfort straight out of the box, these cannot be beat because they have the single flex leather sole. Mine haven't been worn much, but they also tend to "crease" or roll more than the standard PTB due to the unlined natural of the vamp.

To me, the Dover pattern also looks better than the standard PTB as it looks slightly more dressy. I think you will enjoy these.

A pic next to my #8 LWBs

Thanks geek.  How do they fit compared to their lined barrie brethren?

Haha, I could only imagine how much more obsessed I would be with Alden if I lived in the US. For now he won't have much competition from me.

I wish Adlen wasn't so accessible to me sometimes...

Cheers!

Oh so tempting..............if the fx was just a little stronger(maybe some quantitative un-easing) and it would be a lot harder for me resist. And I must say I love the look of the brass on the cap toes too, a really nice touch that makes me think its an entirely new model.

To the fellow addict who kopped my size in the NeedSupply Union Hill tan suede boot: I'm not sure whether to thank you or be envious of you. I was going to call them this morning to find out if they resolved the construction issues that had been discussed on this forum. Looks like you've saved me time and money (and, for that matter, a new cedar boot rack).

 

In all seriousness, I hope you enjoy them and post pics soon! :fistbump:

For now I am pretty comfortable just being patient and browsing the thread and market here to find some sales in my size. I actually just bought my first pair of Alden right now, the CXL PTB that was in the market for a little while. Can't wait for them to arrive. Now I wait for a pair of 975 to pop up haha

 

 

 

The no. 8 Leffot Tanker is pretty much the only other one I am interested in at the moment, so I might jump on a pre-order if they open one up this year.

Really liking this new make-up from Need Supply:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Nice choices! I have the CXL PTB, 975 and the Leffot Tanker. My 975 are Leffot as well with the antique edge.

Most people say the unlined are a bit more snug. I think they are a little more snug, but they also accommodate the foot and "give" a little because they aren't lined. I wear the same size in both lined and unlined at any rate.

They do roll quite a bit more than the lined version, but I think it adds great character to the shoe. Overall, I think the unlined version is sleeker,, but also more casual.

Just an FYI: other retailers carry the #8 Dover besides Leffot (Alden DC). I think the antique edging is exclusive to Leffot though.

I love that shoe and the Frans Boone Parajumper, but after taxes, shipping, etc I'd be looking at around $960 for each of them...ouch.

Ouch is right! It's a shame they have some cool makeups. I'd never spend that, personally.

A bit out of my comfort zone as well although I love the Indy makeup

Oh yeah, I have the Leffot 975 picture saved in my pictures as well. The antique edge is a nice touch on the 975, especially for someone like me who keeps my wardrobe fairly casual. Mostly chinos and jeans for me and those would look fantastic with either.
