    Aldens don't seem to be marked. There also seem to be far far fewer Alden "Irregulars," I dont know of any store other than The Shoe Mart that carries them

    Ya, looks just like my chocolate larchmonts. I also tend to think the larchmonts run a little bigger than most of my other AE's. I could have probably gone down a width or down a .5 size. mine are also 8eee and while I feel they could be more snug, the lacing sides are nowhere near touching.

    They look to be too long on your foot.

    All Alden seconds are stamped with a "R" in the above the same place AE brands its seconds with the shoe stamp. Aldens with a rubber sole have the "R" stamped on the interior lining. TSM is the only retailer for Alden seconds.

    Cronmoks in tan were just ordered! Now I just have to wait 4 weeks to get them… I guess that means they are being made just for me.

    Now I gotta get some mink oil and darken them up!

    Very nice. I thought about buying those during the 2/$250, but it would have been forced; I don't really like the dark brown, and there weren't any other shoes in the sale that I really wanted.

    What's the name of the walnut shoe?
    Not the Park Avenue, is it? Because the Park Avenue was not on the closeout list...

    I wonder if someone could give an advice on AE MacNeil's fit. Is the fit similar/identical to other AE's on the 7 last? Fwiw, I wear 10D in Sanfords, which is pretty much my true size (9.5E would probably work a bit better but they were sold out at the last 2 for 250 sale), but I've heard that one needs to go 1/2 size down on MacNeil.

    I just got a pair of Alden Indys' seconds from ShoeMart (which I subsequently returned) and I can't find any indication that they are secodns, apart from a white ubranded shoebox and no shoe bags. It might be an idiosyncrasy of this particular pair, as they have a lug sole. Yet, my Aberdeens seconds with the lug sole do have the same "shoe-mark" on them.

    I should have mentioned, that I was particularly curious about the sizing of MacNeil's from the rough collection (2011 webgem), in case their fit might be any different from their traditional version.

    Those look like Larchmonts, but I might be wrong.
