The dark brown suede pennies look great.

Alden like, they are not in the same league in terms of materials used. Perhaps Alden like in terms of similarity in the boots both brands offer.
As somebody who owns both, I would say definitely in the same league, with better finishing and more stringent QC from Grant Stone. The difference in price stems from manufacturing country and brand.
As someone who owns both Alden and GS, boots and shoes, I totally agree with this statement, good footwear can be made anywhere there are trained, talented workers using good materials. I suggest the OP, @Jamesbond1, check out Grant Stone's website, he will see that they proudly state the source of leathers used in the footwear. They get the leather from places like Horween, CFStead, Comipel. Or better yet, buy a pair and see for himself.

For the new shoes and shoes in general I'd suggest listing the width (D I'd assume but it should still be listed). Also as you make new models you may want to come up with names for the lasts and include a page on them as that dramatically influences fit.
