I would get the Jcrew one between the two. Unless you're getting either for cheaper than RRP, just go get the Alden cordo longwings.

FWIW, I read the made in US RL shoes are by Highland Shoe Company on a blog. Not sure though, but the soles do look the same as AE cordo shoes.

I don't like either one of them. But if forced to choose between the two, I'd get the RL because of its less massive sole.

Is anyone gonna stop me from buying these at retail this weekend? I have an immediate need for a pair of longwings and the aldens are a bit to chunky for my taste.

Aha! But sleek longwings are not


Which, coincidentally, is what I'm after.

Hmm, I assume that's a different last than they typically make their longwings? I'll have to look into that. Thanks.

Yeah I believe the typically use the Barrie last, I like the looks of the plaza, but I would use double soles.

My friend just bought a pair of these. They look nice, nobody knows for sure what company they are made by?

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
