1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Yep - that's why I identified it as the 2160 in my post. :D Heels are different; so is the last.

    Wow, that's interesting. I'm the same size --- 7.5D Barrie/Trubalance/Modified and 8.0D in others. And the Epic Small's are pretty tight in some of my boots, although I could see room for it being slightly larger in other boots. So, Bakes, in regards to your question, I think you'd probably be happy with a Large since imolazhp is able to get a medium Epic into his size shoe.

    from that angle, it looks like your foot is too wide for the shoe and/or excessive stretch of the cxl

    I'm a wide in Barrie. I'm thinking this may be true for you, too.

    I know that very well - I am a 9.5E in Barrie. I still push up a bit against the sides in that size... In cordovan, my feet conform more to the shoe. With CXL, it is a bit of the opposite. I've tried EE in some sizes, but the difference hasn't been enough for me to require it. I can wear Barrie Longwings in 10D but not other models (like captoe boots, which I've sold)

    Edit - Trubalance in 10D also works very well for me

    So I gave Hunt Club Clothiers in Cincinnati a call after hearing that their clearance sale extended to Aldens (in this thread). They confirmed this and confirmed that they can ship orders, but sadly my size was out of stock and it would be a 14 week wait.

    Just figured I'd let everyone know. Sale extends through the end of the month.

    Not sure on the exact suede as they are second hand and were not in the original box. They are supposedly a make up from Alden of Carmel.

    I had my eye on the AF80 (shortwing) a while back but wasn't sure about going with the commando sole. By the time I made up my mind, my size was gone. I regret not pulling the trigger for a wet weather shoe. I'd go with the short wingtip. (but that's partly bc I already have the LWB in color 8)

    Yeah... I was told the same thing by another store as well. I needed 975s (Color 8 LWB) in size 7.5D, and there were none on hand in the store, nor at Alden. They are doing a run of them as we speak, I guess.

    You don't even need digital cameras, man...though I carry one at all times. Iphone 4 and 5 take great pictures with natural lighting.

    Go with AF80 if your primary use is with a suit.
