    Between ebay and the buy/sell forum here it's amazing what pops up. However the really nice stuff does get snapped up. And don't be afraid to spend some money of course...

    First time poster, long time lurker.

    I'm a Brooks Brothers associate and with all the recent Brooks talk I thought it would be a good time to chime in. If anyone has any questions regarding product offerings I will try my best to answer or at least find the correct answer.

    Let me know if I can help.

    PSA: TSM has color 8 WT boots on the Barrie in stock in various sizes, including 9, 9.5, and 10. Act quickly, and good luck.

    Thanks for the pics. I really like those saddles. I've handled vintage color 8, the colors can be amazing. I hope to find well aged exotics someday.

    Anyone notice this:

    SHIPPING
    Our apologies, we cannot ship Alden shoes to addresses outside of the United States and Canada.

    Seems like Alden is getting more ridiculous re: their already stringent policies (restrictions, really) of their retailers.

    Agreed, the real world pictures really provide the buyer with an excellent idea of what they are buying. Compared to TSM leaps and bounds ahead.

    Hi,

    I am a comfortable fit in the 5.5D unlined barrie last. I have very narrow small feet but a horrible bunion that the barrie last accommodates quite well. The rest of the foot still swims in the shoes though particularly in the the heel. Its a small price to pay.

    Will a lined shoe in 6D in a plaza last offer the same comfortable width ? Trying them on is not an option as I have to purchase them online. Any advice from guys with experience in these lasts would be greatly appreciated.

    Haresh
