    Should be the same as the boot but I have never tried the whole cut. B&M just announced that Alden will no longer produce the whole cut in shell cordovan once they finish the current run.

    Hey Guys,

    Just picked up this pair of Aldens. Can anyone here tell me with certainty which last they are on?

    Thanks 1.jpg 9.jpg

    Hmm - No. I dont think so - I have a pair of Hamptons that fit quite differently. Could it be modified? THanks

    Modified has a much rounder toe. It looks like Barrie to me; a lot of derbies are on Barrie as well.
    From this angle the toes don't look Aberdeen, but it's shell cousins (2145/2146) are on that.

    I am not 100% sure, but I believe they are on Aberdeen. You could email general (at) aldenshoe.com and ask.

    EDIT: I see madhat suggests they are on Barrie. That actually makes more sense than Aberdeen from the toe shape, although these are E width so it could be deceiving. I would just e-mail Alden and ask.

    I committed a cardinal Alden sin - I bought without having tried the 379x last. I couldn't find anyone who made it in an 11.5/12 and certainly not as a C width. The descriptions I found online made it seem like a winner. It seems to be working out for me so far.

    So how did you choose your size and what size did you choose?
