    Swung by Alden DC earlier. They have several models of whiskey and cigar including the cigar captoe boot, whiskey Indy and whiskey shortwing on the Tremont. Also a few one off discounted pairs including cigar captoe balmoral (8.5e) for $395 and a blue suede unlined blucher on flex welt (10dx2) for $300

    Seems like you have visited all of the Alden branded stores... Nice

    I have the cigar captoe and whiskey Indy from Alden DC, both are great models.

    Anyone have any experience wearing "e" sizes in tremont? Wear barrie in 9.5E or 10D... I had a pair of shoes in tremont 10D, but they pinched the balls of my feet too much, so I had to get rid of them... I was wondering if I went to an E in tremont if I still needed to go a size up (10D) or if I could size down (9.5) in length....

    The DC offers quite a bit more selection than does SF. I was praying they would have a 12d in the blue suede. After a couple of monuments, my feet were already aching in my Trickers

    Looking looking for LHS Whiskey 9D anywhere. I did luck into some Whiskey LWB's at Alden SF, the only Whiskey Long Wings they had. Stroke of luck. Whiskey is a great color for the desert and can be worn year round. Please let me know if you run across any in your travels[​IMG].

    I only have one pair in Tremont (974) but they fit perfectly in my 9E Barrie size. I've never varied size in Barrie lasted shoes no matter the style or leather, though.
