    Thanks!

    About the space in front of the toe... there's a good inch of extra space, even though the ball of my foot appears to be at the widest point of the shoe. Is that cause for concern?

    PSA: Size 9 (Barrie) Whiskey Indys on B&S. Well worn... but they're something like $415 dollars!

    Not my listing.

    You had me excited until I saw the pictures. You weren't kidding with the well worn aspect.

    Chipshot - my thoughts and prayers are with you and your wife. I hope for the best

    In my Alden news, I recently got my hands on the color 8 captoe straight tip bals (9070), which should pair nicely with my 9016 for business wear

    I am thinking about adding a tan calfskin model - really considering the Alden 911 for both dress and dress-casual wear. Does anyone own this shoe?

    It seems to me from the photos that there are varying lengths to the vamps on the LHS models photographed recently. For example, the vamp on @mrvenneri seems longer than the one on @mdubs. Is this correct?

    I can not confirm nor deny, but consider:
    1. they are likely different sizes.
    2. the camera and perspective of the lens have a lot to do with the appearance.
