    Although I will say, in my limited experience, I've enjoyed the Tremont and Leydon lasts. comfortable, yet still attractive

    My thoughts exactly. This is why I made the shell Indy in #8 my most recent purchase .... currently drooling because UPS should be delivering them before I get home from work today :slayer:

    I plan on wearing them to work and on the weekends. Mine come with the double oak leather sole, so I have to wait a week while my cobbler throws on a Vibram topy

    The shell Indys should be a good pair with the raw KMWs I snatched up yesterday on sale, here's me wearing them with my current pair of 403s:

    Last time I did a preorder with them, Alden of DC did not require a deposit at all.

    Yep, I was waiting for her to ask me for my CC info but she didn't :slayer: I basically told her I want to reserve a 10D. And I agree Grant is becoming my favorite last as well.

    Alden DC service is great - they shipped my captoes overnight, included extra laces and brown paste wax

    Grant is a fine last but I need an E in them, which basically makes them look the same as barrie. Aberdeen in E fits me the best at this point, and it looks relatively sleek even in E

    How long did they say was the wait? I called them up yesterday to get the same exact shoe but they were closed, so I put the thought on ice.

    Cathy said they just placed the order and went to production last month...she said at least a 4 month wait. Thanks to ninja07 for "making" me buy these.

    IMO they are some of the best Alden cordovan boots on the market. Right up there with the ravello hunting/daytripper boots, the JC Indy, color 8 tankers and the Brixtons (ravello and color 8)

    yes... you should ship them to him immediately before the cellular structure deteriorates further.

    I don't think they even have a website at all. Everything that I've ever done with them has been over the phone.
