    Me too.

    I actually have 3 pair of PTBs - black, #8, and brown (Ralph Lauren "cognac"). The #8 get the most wear by far.

    Would you say most of your customers then are of the Asian persuasion or just small-footed? Having seen the absurd prices on Rakuten and the like for Aldens, I'm just wondering if a lot of your customers come from Asia since Hawaii is basically the middle of the road.

    Only 1 to 2 pairs for sizes over 10.5 makes me sad. :(

    #8 in my opinion. I posted some photos of mine a few days ago, if you want to see an example with a little wear. I've seen other photos that better show how the color develops.

    This is a great example of why Alden wait times are through the roof.

    Whiskey Plain Toe Bluchers from Alden Madison Ave. Service was a bit gruff but fair and shipping was speedy. As a native NY'r, this is exactly what I expected. Straightforward and honest.
