    Gave the new unlined LHS a proper maiden voyage today but not before capturing the beautiful color in the morning light before leaving the house. Now to find a deadstock 8D unlined BB whiskey LHS hahaha (but seriously let me know if you are reading this and have a pair hidden in your closet)

    Great grab.. I saw these and like the darker welt, great patina... Killer shoe you have there, enjoy. Yes LHS gets dicey, .. I find these shoes do differed ever so slightly between and size same makeup. I think this is especially true in the hand stitched vamp Alden models,I believe they show off the true artisan nature of the line.. Go USA! ;)

    Such is life. There is one eBay find in my size that I missed (it was a buy it now for a stupidly low price and I made the mistake of looking at completed listings...) and I am so incredibly sad about it that I cry myself to sleep every night. Then I remember that they're just shoes.

    A sizing question for your experienced forum members. I am considering ordering an 11.5 EEE shoe on the Aberdeen last. I previously tried an 11 EEE in the Aberdeen last and it was too tight across the vamp. I have the same issue in the Hampton last in that same size with calf shoes, but the shell 11 EEE in the Hampton are just fine. With this said, what are the chances that the 11.5 EEE on the Aberdeen will resolve the fit issues? Or should I just pass on Aberdeen shoes all together? Thanks

    I wear a 10B in both the Hampton and Abderdeen in calf (note that my foot is narrow). Not sure that going up a size in length will solve the vamp issue - It may just be that the Aberdeen's long, narrow last does not work for you. The only way to really know would be to try them on.

    There's an online store called "Shoe Lace Express". They have virtually everything in every length. I've used them and have been pleased with the result.

    Quick question fellas

    I just received my Bb snuff suede tassel Mocs and they are awesome. I didn't think Aberdeen would fit but they are perfect. I didn't order waterproofing spray yet- am I making a mistake wearing them without spraying? Excited to wear them of course!

    Thanks

    Because one day I'll have access to a time machine.... I'd like to know, was anyone able to order Alden mto back in the day, or was it only for a few vip customers.
