Good to see you here on the Alden thread JS. As a previous post mentioned, Alden's stores (SF & DC) in addition to the independently owned "Alden" Madison, NYC shop should give you the best chance of getting them. The Shoe Mart is also another good source but I think they typically carry "D" widths. You can also check out their FS list since they might have some interesting shoes in your size.

Good luck!

King for me today...

These re-crease instantly for me every time I wear them.

However.... the color variation is fantastic.

Looks like I'm going to have to resell these. I finally had a chance to wear them yesterday and a chance to walk a bit in them. My pinky tors started hurting later in the day due to rubbing on the inside of the shoe. Oh well. It was worth a shot but I now know that the Hampton last isn't for me.

Looks like my tax return this year is going to allow for a new pair of shoes!  :slayer:

 

 

I have 3 on my list at the moment, unlined #8 LHS, 975 and the Leffot Tanker. The tanker would be hard to get so I will keep waiting for a pre-order and I already have a pair of AE and OSB loafers, so it looks like the 975 is up next since I don't have a longwing in the collection.

 

 

If anyone is selling a 7.5D Barrie 975 feel free to hit me up, in the meantime I am going to be searching online for the most cost effective way to get a pair up here in Canada.

Solid dude! So classic.

Leffot was carrying this City Moc in Chromexcel last year but I missed my size and, as of now, they don't plan on restocking. I'm wondering, has anyone seen it pop up anywhere else? It still strikes me as the perfect casual shoe.

^^ I'm fairly certain The Shoe Mart has something similar.

Clearly Mdubs floats in the air like Magneto. Those plaza not-split handsewns don't have a single wrinkle. Beautiful pics!

Still trying to decide if I want to keep these or not.

They are classic. What would be the motivation for giving them up?

You clearly don't love them so I would recommend not keeping them. They are an expensive piece of footwear and if you don't love them then you will likely always reach for something else. At the end of the day it doesn't matter how much everyone else may or may not love them but only feel how they will work for you and your attire. It is important (but difficult) to balance what may be popular on SF versus what actually works best for you.

^ +1. No matter what we say, it has to work for you.  That said, you're cray-cray.

Those look great. Why wouldn't you keep them?

At the moment, the main thing is I'm worried about my pinky toes. That being said, I think they are still a bit sore from rubbing against the Hampton last shortwings I was wearing yesterday so I might have to give these a shot again in a few days.

I'm liking them a bit more now that it's light out and I can see more of the color but you are right. If I don't love them, they will be going back.
