    I have three pairs of Aldens as of now, but I think I might save up for a pair of longwing shell bluchers.

    Can one order shoes in different front and heel widths? One of my shoes are 11EE/D and they are a tiny bit wide in the heel area, but my unlined suede bluchers are 11 E/C and they feel pretty good, but I think 10.5 EEE/C would be a better fit as there I can see the sides of my feet push against the sides of the shoe, I guess it will be more visible since they are unlined.

    Oh and there I'd thought you'd just taken your Alden family on a vacation. :)

    Nice shine on all of them!

    Can anyone tell me what the status is of that Carmina brown boot MTO that was started on this thread about a month or so ago?

    Thanks

    Nicccce! Did you go true to size on yours? I picked up a pair recently, too, but I can't decide if they're slightly too big.

    +100. Hem all the way. Looks a bit sloppy IMO.

    I searched the forum as it didn't occur to me that the Mac Method was world renowned. Took your advice and found the most amazing YouTube video. In addition to no longer feeling kind of silly about purchasing a dear bone, I am now truly optimistic about getting my trusty LHS's to pop. Thanks for the advice.

    I don't know about length, but I believe the increase in width is 3/8" every half size, if I remember correctly.
