    I think the last is different with the boot above looking like the Plaza and Day Tripper is on the Barrie IIRC.

    Someone said that there's a way to search the New York Alden Store inventory online. For the life of me I can't find this, could someone post a link?

    Gents, can anyone please inform me about the 379X last? To what last would it equate to (TruBalance/Barrie/etc.)?

    to put it into context: The Bureau has an Alden Snuff Suede Blucher Boot available, and their description includes the following:

    "This boot is made on the 379X last which is an old WWII military boot last."
    http://www.thebureaubelfast.com/shop/product/1875/alden-snuff-suede-blucher-boot/

    the boot is nice, but I am unfamiliar with the 379X last, so I'm wondering how they'll fit -

    $647.09 (409 British Pounds) - more expensive than the 404's, no doubt, but I like them

    one thing that I've learned here (and maybe you'll agree) is that, if you really like a certain pair of Aldens, you have to not wait or think about it, you have to buy them immediately, because who knows when you'll get the opportunity again [​IMG]

    (edit: just to reinforce the statement above, I think I grabbed the last pair they have in my size [​IMG])

    Kudu is increasingly looking like a must own leather. I may get in the longwings when they are back next fall/winter...
