Thanks, I thought so too. How often do they order new models? Biannually?
Sold to @mcinco
Thank you gentlemen for your interest.
I need help finding the size of a pair of Alden boots that I think are Barrie last, but the size has been rubbed off the cloth lining and I have no way to tell their size.
It looks like they're either 10.5 or 11.5, and they measure 13" heel to toe or a shade under.
I've compared them to a 10.5 Barrie Dover, 11 Barrie Longwing, and 12 Barrie boot, but still can't determine their size using these for comparison. Any advice?
I honestly have not noticed anything too new from them in a while but I don't check often.
You can get a pretty nice looking plain toe boot from Lost & Found right now though.

Indy overload over here!
Which 3 do I sell? (Keep in mind I’ve already sold snuff suede Indys and Blue CXL Indys)
1. OG 405
2. LeatherSoul Ultimate Indy (commando sole) modified with all brass eyelets
3. Leather Soul Vintage Indy (similar owned – none)
4. Ep. Nat CXL Innsbruck Indy (similar – Nat CXL PT boot)
5. Ep. Ironside Reverse Chamois Indy (similar – B&M Reverse Chamois WT boot)
6. Color 8 Shell Indy - modified with all brass eyelets (similar – Color 8 shell Tanker)
7. Black Shell Indy - modified with all brass eyelets and mid brown edge trim (already for sale) (similar – Black shell Tanker)
8. Color 4 Indy with Unicorn horn eyelets (similar – color 4 shell flip flops)
I'd sell number 1 or number 3. The others are dope. Actually All are dope but 1 and 3 seem less dope to me.
That's quite a few indy's haha. If it were me, I'd probably unload:
The Ls vintage(isn't it just smooth chamois? Sorta falls into the same camp as your B+M boot leather wise, and I think reverse chamois looks better)
The ep ironside(same reason as above, but the black/grey look of the leather doesn't appeal to me as much)
The natty Innsbruck(I own this too and like it, but it's my only natty cxl)
I gotta imagine it's hard when you have a sizable collection to not have too much overlap in terms of leathers/styles. I know it's something I think about before pulling the trigger on something, but I'm still just starting my collection with only 6 pairs right now heh.
Quote: I would think the Ironside would be more similar to the B&M reverse wingtip than the LS Vintage.....the LS Indy is the only one I own, and I love it!
Hey guys, I've two tassels 9.5D that seem not right size wise. 36205 and 36601 BNIB. Haven't listed quite yet .. as I am still unsure of fitting this Alden model. PM if you have any suggestions...
First thing is to find a last that fits him. A store will help a lot there. Some lasts just won't fit certain feet.
Shell models usually fit a little less snug then their normal leather counterparts.
Anyone know of a similar boot to the Alden Black Trapper at lost & found? Confirmed that they don't have stock in my size 8.5D.
Key points that I'm looking for are black, commando sole, cap toe, in anything but cordovan.
If one is going to do this, one should at least make some purchases. I did this at my local Red Wing store to see if a grailed listing would fit me, and I bought some laces and socks from the guy.
slightly off topic but related, i looked for but could not find an Alden color 8 shell cordovan belt. Shell cordovan is in short supply and probably used mostly for shoes.
However, i found a shell cordovan color 8 belt at an Allen Edmonds store near my office. The shell is a tad lighter in hue than my Alden shoes (a plain toe blucher and a 'leisure handsewn' penny loafer), 3 pieces of shell, leather backing, fairly robust nickel buckle. sewn all the way through, double stitching where the pieces of shell are joined. i'm very pleased with how this belt was finished. made in the US. 2 of the pieces of shell are perfectly smooth, the third has a very slight roughness to it. but for that roughness, it's a steal retailing under $200.
