Any Alden bros heading to the Masters this year? I was fortunate enough to score tickets for Thursday’s round. Sadly I don’t think I’m gonna wear Aldens though because it’s supposed to be a thousand degrees and I don’t own loafers.
Perfect occasion to buy loafers. May I recommend unlined suede? :cool2:

Sadly DV, it appears that no cell phones or cameras are allowed Thursday-Sunday.
Fascists.

I’m surprised they don’t have some Disneyesque Memory Maker thing you can buy for an exorbitant fee.

Gentlemen, I've been a longtime AE shoe wearer but recently (like, yesterday) started going down the Alden LHS rabbit hole and want some desperately. To my disappointment, I learned that I'm literally a week or so late on the BB sale. A question - any chance I can still get a pair from BB? And any guidance on exactly what I should be asking for? I don't see any Aldens on the website.

Thanks for any help.

Call them. Surely they can check the various stores for a pair in your size. Sounds like you need to figure out your size still. Maybe it’ll be easy for you. You may also find a pair on eBay - maybe even a new one. Do you have an idea what size you might be?

Anyone else have "special" feet like me? For just about every AE last, I'm a 9D. For Barrie/Trubalance I'm an 8.5D. When I was at the DC store, Van last I'm an 8D. It's snug but not painful at all. Tried 8.5D and wasn't going to work. Felt weird going down a full size but hey, I'm blessed the Van last fits because loafers.

I called many BB stores directly last week looking for the LHS in burgundy. Several reps at several stores independently told me that they could see the inventory system wide in all stores and in the warehouse and there were no LHS left in my size. The salesperson at the Washington DC store also told me that all stores were instructed to send all of the Alden for BB cordovans back to the main warehouse so they could be sold online and to check back on the website in a few days for possibly new listings. These never materialized and the price of the remaining Aldens are back up to full price. Luckily, I was able to purchase 3 other cordovan Alden loafers at the sale price. Importantly, several reps at the stores told me even if my size was in stock at their location, I would have to go there in person to buy as company policy would not allow a credit card transaction over the phone due to prior fraud issues.
