    The Alden Buy, Sell, Trade (B/S/T) Thread

    "Is a reverse goat mortgage right for you? Call me now to find out how you can benefit from your goat equity." Seriously, someone buy those boots. I'm annoyed my feet aren't a half size smaller.

    I don't own (nice) boots, so take this with a grain of salt - I have Alden longwings in calf, shell, scotch-grain calf, and suede. I have noticed no appreciable difference between them. I have Alden LHS in shell, kudu, and suede. Five pairs total. Every pair seems to fit slightly...

    Not speaking for OP, but I have the same ones and the fit vexes me so I'll chime in. I am a Barrie 10. My Brannock is like 10.25 and wide in the toe area, but not quite E-width (in other words, annoying). Here is my LHS breakdown: Suede - no-show socks or barefoot - 10D Van - a little snug...

    The traffic volume here is nothing compared to DC, Boston, LA, NYC, Atlanta etc. What makes it so frustrating is that when you get off the highway, there is a light every 1/8 mile on Route 1. This leads to incredible traffic jams, as well as CT drivers pulling borderline crazy moves to get...

    The new store is way better than the old one. It's like someone waved a magic wand over that Payless. I live two towns up the road and sometimes head south for work and hit TSM on the way home (well, when I used to leave the house for work). Be aware: both the parking lot and the traffic in...

    Thank you! I spent way too much time looking through the thousands of socks on Amazon this weekend. I am buying these now.

    Hi folks - apologize because this has probably been covered before - has anyone found a true no-show sock that works with LHS'? I searched through the forums, and found some advice in one of the AE threads to go for women's socks. This makes some sense to me. These Darn Tough socks actually...

    Thanks - I strongly considered these calf All Weather Walker Longwings on crepe. I love my other Alden Longwings, and I know how the Barrie last fits me. https://www.theshoemart.com/alden-mens-97720-long-wing-all-weather-walker-dark-brown-smooth-calfskin/ I like the way they look better than...

    Hey all - first time long time, etc. How are you liking these? I was actually pondering heading to TSM after work today to purchase a pair, so you post is serendipitous. I need a pair of shoes for the winter months that have a rubber sole (probably anathema in these parts, but I cannot...
