    As the origin of this trumor, I'll look into it. It's not unlike Alden to be late on orders and these are about a month late per my source.

    more to come...

    I did a closet audit the other day and realized ALL of my Aldens were some shade of brown. I guess I need a black pair. I found these Black Flex Longwings (LSW) on Leather Soul the other day. It looks like they're all sold out, as they were released Fall 2011. Does anyone know where I might be able to source a similar pair?

    Has anyone seen some alden's shells at a discount retailer? Somebody like Nordstrom Rack? Maybe the J crew outlets? Thanks.

    Are you definitely wanting the antique edge? If not, J.Crew has some decent looking black, and Leffot has some black shells left, though only in a few sizes it would appear.
    Leffot also has nice looking Color 8 with antique edge trim.

    J. Crew outlets get some as you can see them on eBay. I doubt Nordstrom Rack would ever get a pair unless it was super scuffed / damaged.

    Looking for a little guidance here...I noramally wear an 11d on the Barrie however while looking online found a nice wingtip but it is only available in 10.5e or 11e. I have never tried on an e before and was wondering how does it actually compare. Should I go down a size because of this or just stay with actual size?

    That sucks man. The one time that I have dealt with them they were great at responding to my e-mails. And offered up options on how to get what i was looking for.

    depends on how the 11D fits you. if it's a little snug, you don't want to go down to 10.5

    sHOULD THERE BE A CAUSE FOR CONCERN... GOT THESE NOT THAT LONG AGO AND HAVE WORN THEM TWICE FOR A TOTAL OF 12 HOURS MAX... THE CREASING ON THE LEFT SHOE IS BAD, AT LEAST TO ME...... HOWEVER THIS IS MY FIRST PAIR OF SCOTCHGRAIN.... THESE ARE THE SPECIAL ONES FOR JCREW.. THINKING I SHOULD DO AN EXCHANGE.... I WOULD LIKE YOUR THOUGHTS.

    Out of curiosity, anyone have a guess as to what an Alden retailer (Theshoemart, Leffot, Leathersoul, Context, etc) actually pays for new shell cordovan shoes/boots from Alden i.e. wholesale?
    1/2 of what we pay retail, 1/3, 2/3, etc.??


    Thanks,

    I'm trying to see a problem but can't. Shoes crease and those look good to me. Your feet (and everyone else's too) are different sizes which will cause shoes to crease differently. Keep them and wear them.
