Understand that it's like apples vs. oranges, but for those who own and like EG's in the 202 last, it would be really helpful to me to know what Alden lasts (and what sizes) also work for you. I know -- your results will vary -- but I'm curious. Thanks.

This is helpful, as I actually need to size up 1/2 size on the Hampton versus most other US shoes and other Alden lasts (i.e., I'm an 11.5 C or D in the Hampton, while I'm an 11C or D in the Barrie and an 11D in the Aberdeen).

A tad more elegant??? More like 100X more elegant.

I think the Plaza is Alden's best looking last, but I don't think it looks much like the 202.
