    All of my Aldens were bought online. The only somewhat local place I have is LSBH.

    I don't (yet) own a pair of these, but I'd definitely wear them with jeans if I did.

    Absolutely. JGilbert's plaza lasted color 8 boot on the commando sole is my favorite high boot make up. I have various models in that make up. And I wear them all with jeans, and of course with many other things as well.

    Good advice here.

    I wear my snuff suede unlined pubs without socks in the summer all the time.

    This is a great boot from Jgilbert. I own it. You should contact Yenni to check if/when they are doing it again.

    It's about an hour away though. I stopped by a couple of times to chat with Brian. Haven't bought any footwear yet.

    An hour? That's nothing. I'd love to be an hour away from an Alden dealer (usually I have to get on a plane). Bryan and Joel are a pleasure to deal with. I hope to get back out there next weekend.

    Best of luck. And I like your photos. I'll have to learn how to use the timer on my camera.

    Agreed. I think I had grabbed the 8D cigar capote from DC last week and it was you who was also looking at it. For frame of reference I returned it as it was a bit too tight for me, probably needed an 8.5. Getting an exact sizing on Alden can be difficult. I also tried an 8E in the Chukka and it was just a bit too big for me. I feel confident now in an 8D on the Barrie. With that being said my #8 wingtip Barrie boots area bit on the snug side and I might consider Barrie boots in an 8.5 in the future. My Indys are an 8D as well; I know most people size down but mine fit pretty well but a bit loose. I do wonder how a 7.5E would fit in comparison. It is just so difficult to truly know...

    I'm curious about Plaza-lasted boots -- as far as I know, there's one from J. Gilbert (#8 Captoe boot) and one from Frans Boone (Ravello Indy). Does anyone know of other Plaza-last boots?
