The problem with Aldens is getting them shipped over from the US. If you have a proxy in the US, you can get yourself on The Shoe Mart mailing list for Alden irregulars and get the cheaper that way: http://www.theshoemart.com/contact/c-contact_irregular.html
Alternatively, Need Supply (http://needsupply.com/mens/brands/alden/indy-work-boot.html) and The Alden Shop of San Francisco (http://www.aldenshop.com/DrawOnePage.aspx?PageID=3) also ship. Shipping is $135 per pair of shoes for the latter!
The Brown Man is the expert on Alden lasts and fits.
This is also a useful resource:
I know this is WAY more than you asked for but hope it helps!
Thanks heaps Gerry. I am waiting for Tassels HK to open today and I will call them for their pricing. Probably be an eye-watering mouth-gaping experience.
For $667+$135= US$802 for the Alden, then Carmina also comes into consideration at EU$500. Unless you sell me your Lindricks, of course.
Edit: also bloody Vass too.
