    At the very least it's fun to poke around the bolts of fabric at the Andover Shop. But yes, salty attitudes abound there to say the least.

    And, if we're just talking about general Boston / Cambridge men's shops deserving of visits, I'd also head up to Drinkwater's between Porter / Davis.

    Finally, I totally forgot earlier, but Ball and Buck does carry some Alden models now (three to four tops). I was surprised by that when I was in town and dropped in a couple weeks back.

    I meant to include this post in the reply above. Tampatravel was right on the money. B&B has Alden, just not on the internet.

    Called Citishoes and the closest they had to my size in a Cigar PTB or NST was a 7.5E and 9.5E respectively. Oh well. The hunt continues.

    There's also a white suede LWB that I don't recall seeing before. They just announced a new 25% off code, but of course Alden is excluded.

    Pretty much everything is back ordered, but expected ship is Sep 2nd, so not terrible.

    edwinl: Anyone found themselves having to go a half size up on the brannock size for the Aberdeen last? Trying to figure out if a pair slightly bigger than my usual would fit.

    Not me. I find the Aberdeen is TTS.

    Just on a whim I called to NRO to see if I could catch lightning in a bottle for anything ravello or whiskey.

    Spoke to a lovely SA.
    Customer service - 10
    Lightning in a bottle - 0


    Thanks BeSpiff. The LWB is, bar none, my favorite Alden.

    Gentlemen - two beautiful pairs of shoes. Those eyelets give the suede PTB a unique look, and, well, I find myself wanting a color 8 chukka more and more every day.

    Felt like buzzing around town with a cigar today. A LWB cigar.

    Almost wore those today, but had to wear a suit. A very comfortable option and a fine summer look. I need to enjoy mine more often.
