    Anyone know if the alden dress boots generally run large or small?
    That depends on the last used to make the boots and your own feet. For me, the Grant last runs true to size, and the Plaza last runs small, where I have to size up half a size.

    All these stories wanna make me get the RW 1911 even more. I wanna feel how much a pair of boots can hurt and I'd like to see how feel how much more comfortable they get. jet: thanks for the heads up man, now I don't have to obsess over the APC boots no more! [​IMG]

    What about Paul Smith "Dickens"?

    Those are the ones I was thinking of. Bought them about a month ago. Just awesome. The difference is that the last is a bit wider than the Sundance, and they are available in olive green as well as black.

    For those who were loving these boots when the thread was started, I have a few pairs for sale in the Men's Clothing B&S if you're interested:

    I lost my good pics when my laptop quit, so I need to take more. Here is what I scrounged up from way back:

    I think Louis ordered the original version like mine, but the ones we did for Bergdorf were on a little sleeker last:

    does anyone else have more information on how the plaza last fits? I've now heard size up 1, size up .5 and true to size. [​IMG]

    Didn't realize there was such a thing, but those Vass are essentially perfect for what they are.

    IMO Wings + Horns work boots are perfect, for what they are. I just wish that the company that makes them (Dayton) would make a similar model that's undistressed but still sleek. I'm not digging the price tag on these (7-800?) but from what I hear of the company, it's fairly justified.

    For me, I size up by .5 and down a width. True to size also fits me, but not quite as well.

    Can anyone suggest a similar shoe to the Polo Bauchi Boot for a cheaper price and with a rubber sole if possible.

    I kopped a pair similar with that, very similar the same height, silhouette, and shape. Notable differences were rubber commando sole, but just a bit thinner than the Alden commando sole... Oh, and plain toe, instead of capped.

    If you want, I can dig through my shit and find out the what past model they are for you. Brand isn't SF "approved", but honestly who gives a shit. Feel free to drop a PM.
