    It's official, cigar best cordo color.
    I could not agree more. I like them better than my Whiskey in both wingtip and plain toe. [​IMG]

    I don't know Varvatos or Five Ten's fit, but I had to size down 1/2 a size from my Chucks on the Trubalance. I'd personally say size 8, but that's just my opinion.

    Originally posted this in the ask a question get an answer thread.

    I'm interested in buying a pair of Alden Indy, but am unsure what size I should get.
    I've read to many size posts on the forum, most of it conflicting.

    For reference I wear:
    Varvatos Chucks - size 8.5
    Five Ten Basic - size 9
    Varvatos loafers - size 9D

    According to Alden the Trubalance last run a half size larger than marked.

    Would this make my ideal Indy size a 8.5?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok, after my thread died...maybe this is the right place to post this. Does anyone own the Alden for Winn Perry "Little Tank"? I would love to see pictures of the boots worn and if someone has seen/owns it what colour has it? More grayish or brown? The winn perry pictures differ a little bit from these I found on flickr (regarding colour). [​IMG] [​IMG] And a kinda related side-note: Alden for Winn Perry Round 3: [​IMG] Thank you! -MS

    Hi I was trying to figure out what last this one pair of Aldens are. I only have pictures.

    on the inside is this writing:

    11b/d 7H 041TR (or IR) 2

    I'm trying to figure out if I'll be able to fit in this shoe since I'm a true 11.5 but I've read on some models to size down

    They're plain toe bluchers with 4 eyelets if that helps anymore.

    Thanks!

    Kiya,
    I'm working over at Unionmade in SF. we are getting Alden saddles in a couple months. I believe the main body is white nubuck with navy calf saddles and a brick sole. they're going to be sweet.

    we have some other special Aldens in the works so I will keep y'all posted!



    Can you do pre-orders so those of us who don't wear a "D" width can get in on the action?

    the saddle shoes and a couple others have been ordered already but with upcoming orders, yes.

    I will be posting details shortly of upcoming releases and we can take pre-orders then

    Just as an FYI, it looks like Shoemart has a nearly full stock of D width cigar long wings. Too bad that I'm a C width... [​IMG]

    These are my first pair of Aldens. They definitely won't be my last.
