1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Alden shoes
    Style #96963 (Classic penny loafers in natural chromexcel Horween leather - from Unionmade Goods)
    Tag size: 11.5D
    USA made

    Actual measurements....

    Length: 12 1/2"
    Width: 4 3/8"

    Basically, the perfect pair of loafers. Original leather soles (marked Alden), stacked heels, full leather lining, 270 degree welt, and made with natural chromexcel leather from the Horween Tannery in Chicago. As you know, this leather gets better and better looking the more it's worn. It's also tough and self oiling, so it requires very little care, just an occasionally brushing with a horsehair brush. I gave them a quick brush before taking the photos. You could give them a more thorough brushing and clear up a lot of the scuffs and marks if desired.

    These were a half size large and so were always worn with socks. The interior leather lining is super clean. There is also a ton of life left on the original leather soles and they come with the original Alden shoe bags (I don't have the box and the shoe trees aren't included). Get yourself a deal - these cost nearly $600 after tax when purchased new at Unionmade Goods. Actually, I just checked their site and they don't seem to be carrying them anymore in this leather.

    $215 shipped CONUS

    Thanks for looking and let me know if you have any questions. Happy new year.

    Hello again.

    I do not have any experience with the Copley or Aberdeen lasts.

    You previously said that you have numerous other Aldens.

    What is your typical Barrie size?

    Any chance you can compare to Allen Edmonds 5 last?

    Thanks!
