They look like 'Sheims and are worth closer inspection, imo.

If they're Alden produced I'm a buyer. Florsheim, not so much...

Leffot was taking orders earlier - check them out.

That would suck,I would prefer them to be Alden made. I will kop if they are Alden,will pass if they are Florsheim. Are Florsheim made in the US,anybody?

Shoemart has the #8 wingtip boot on the Barrie last with a double leather sole that is regularly stocked: http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-men..._cordovan.html

I think Alden's in whiskey shell would retail for more than $575. Also, the soles on those don't look like the typical Alden double oak leather sole.

I haven't been getting them regularly, and even worse I've been getting dropped size by size from the lists.

Anyone with comments on the quality/build of the DB x Florsheim longwings? I've seen them in person and thought they were solid, gy welted, leather soles and lining, and shell is sourced from Horween afaik, but I'm far from being an expert on shoe construction and have only handled them in store.

They haven't emailed them out in a while. I have contacted them, and they confirmed that the list isn't currently being circulated.

I have the cherry red brogues, no complaints, seem made quite well tho it's "made in india" and at FxDB prices you'd think they were made in USA like originally were. Mine have a good amount of miles walked in them and no problems. Yes, the cordovan is horween

speaking of Aldens, just bought the cordovan #8 Smooths as an early bday gift to myself

I have been comparing the BB whiskey to Aldens. The medallion is the same. The only difference is that the BB model contains double stitching above & below the broguing along the sides. The Alden model only has single stitching, so it is possible that it's Florsheim.

The look very similar.

Those are in fact the Florsheim Duckey Browns, they're made in India (but allegedly using Horween leather).

I've always thought "imported" was code for not made in USA, England, or Italy.

Is is the general consensus that the Aberdeen last is narrower not shorter than the Barrie? My personal experience is that the Alden is a full size smaller than my other brands. However, guidance from Carmel that the Aberdeen is a half size shorter isn't my finding. My 2146s seem just as long as my Blackbird x Alden shortwings on the Barrie last. Where I notice the difference is in the fit across the width across the top. Maybe a stretching? I certainly find the Barrie more comfortable, and wonder if shouldn't size the Aberdeen in an E width to get the same feel?
