    Hi (Styleforumers) Alden crew,
    Question: How does one go about getting a pair of custom 'Aldens' made?

    I have contacted 'Aldens' direct but they have said they are not taking any custom orders at this time?
    I've read in these pages (threads) people/stores having specials made - but is that the case for individuals?

    Is there a better contact point than just the standard Alden web email address?

    Thanks for any info.
    HAGWE

    True to size in my experience...I bought them in my Barrie size and had to return them because they were much too narrow. And I have a narrow to regular size foot.

    That was a super disappointing day as Leffot didn't have a 10.5 for me to exchange it with.

    They don't do one-offs anymore. You need a minimum order of, I believe, 20 (right?) pairs for a custom makeup. Then you get to wait half a year for them :).

    Half a year only? Wishful thinking...

    ^ yeah, more like a year and a half...and actually I think you might only need 12 orders for a special run, I could be mistaken though.
