    Cross post from Epaulet thread. Natural LWB on Leydon last. A pretty good pic for color representation.

    ^Oboy - the color on those look great. Much better than the Ep pix suggest.

    Nice look.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Alden pre-orders....I have 4 pairs on order right now - the first should get here in the next 3-4 months, but I still have about a year and a half wait before I have all of them in my possession.


    Yep, #8 LWBs are readily available from most Alden retailers. Any store that stocks a #8 LWB, even if they don't have it on hand, can order one from Alden's warehouse and have it to you in a couple days.

    I have the J Gilbert Color 8 in the captoe boot, but I have tried on the NST Tanker they have as well. It's very sleek, a great boot. I think the two are fairly similar though so It's really a personal choice. If you live in a rainy/snowy climate though I'd go for the J Gilbert as it has a commando sole if I recall.... I know my pair does...

    For me, I would wear 10 in Barrie except there is so much heel volume that I can't wear that last. Sizing down to 9.5 creates length issues for my toes. It's safe to say I have low volume feet.

    So, I wear 10 in Leydon, which is perfect (for quick ref, I'm 10 in Red Wings and Danner boots, 10.5 in Clark's, and 11 in most sneakers incl. Jack Purcells)

    I really hate shoemart right now. I ordered the Shell Cordovan longwings from the irregulars list and the order and they "claimed" they sent me an email about a shipping address conflict, so instead of calling me with the number they asked me to give, they sell the shoe to the next person and don't even notify me until i happen to call to find out why my order was not shipped for a whole week.

    Ugh.

    what are the major difference between lined and unlined shoes? wouldn't we want lined shoes if they provide it?
