Thanks for providing him with a detailed reply, I definitely couldn't have put it better myself. I agree it's probably going to be a matter of trial and error at this point. Personally I'd probably try the length increase over the width increase but I could see either being possible. I also just wanted to mention that the staff at shoemart is very knowledgeable and responsive. I was pretty impressed. If you ever go there, the place is tiny (yes I'm talking about the new location where they moved). It's located in the middle of nowhere, in a strip mall. They have a very small overall capacity (not quite as small as the old AE Freeport outlet store, but still very small) but the back "room" or space has a couple walls primarily dedicated to Alden, and they have a back room with more inventory. I guess my point is for such a small place they definitely have a good group of people working there.
Thanks for your thoughts on sizing, Neo1 - and my interactions with Dylan at TSM gave me the same impression. In fact, the way you describe it, it sounds a lot like the place where I got my first pair of Aldens (Delmar Bootery, just outside of Albany, NY); a tiny storefront in a strip mall, but with a good selection of Aldens, and a very knowledgeable staff. As I recall, they didn't have the 994s I was looking for in stock in my size, but they fitted me in another shoe on the Barrie last and ordered the 994s, which fit perfectly when they came.

Good morning all. Another maiden voyage here. Recently scored these TSM seconds that are stamped on the insoles as a Leffot makeup but I haven't seen them before and google doesn't seem to know anything about them. TSM listed them as D6856HC on Barrie but I'm thinking they are Grant last. Really digging them. Anyone recognize this makeup?
