    Does anybody know where I can get Wing Tip Boot in Ravello in 10.5D? TSM is out of that size.

    Has anyone here purchased the blue suede ptb or the waxed reverse chamois ptb from Roden Gray?

    Their website doesn't contain any of the typical Alden specs. I emailed them about whether they were unlined, on the barrie last and with a flex welt sole, and the response I got led me to believe that the guy didn't know what he was talking about. A confirm from a forum member here would give me the confidence to pull the trigger. Thanks in advance!

    quick question for every Alden masters. I tried on the #8 unlined LHS at BB today and found that the vamp gives me a slight discomfort, should I go with a different size or should I just forget about the LHS at all?

    Hi,

    Looking at mine now (from Roden Gray), single flex welt sole for sure. As for lined or not, I'm not sure. The heel part has a leather lining but the front does not. Does this mean they're unlined? For your research, the model number on the box is 29331F.

    Ya, some people find that the Van does not work at all for their foot. Others have found that going up one width size tends to fix the 'pinch' across the vamp. I know BB often has E widths...
