    I actually went over to Alden NY to try on some 974s. I needed 10E. Something in my foot shape required the next width up in that last.

    Do they have their own web site? I'm looking for some cap toe cigar balmorals.

    I know this might sound kind of silly, but I think we should organize an Alden "happy hour" event in certain major cities...would anyone be game for this? Not sure what kind of turnout we'd have, and if people are as interesting in real life as they are on this forum, but just a thought. My other thought would be to organize an annual (or one-time) Alden factory site visit, perhaps even turn it into a weekend, where you could bring your wives, girlfriends, etc. Then again, maybe better to maintain anonymity...happy Friday everyone.

    yup. no surprise there.
    in other words... if you are a customer interested in getting good service and expect high quality standards, you'll have to look elsewhere.

    I was just thinking about something similar. A year or two ago I organized a meetup at Alden DC. Only a few guys made it but it was a lot of fun and Kathy really enjoyed it, too. I followed up in discussions with Kathy about her hosting a more formal event but Alden corporate would not allow anything like that. I think it's a shame.

    Anyway, would anyone be interested in an informal meetup at Alden DC sometime?

    I'm game, assuming I can make the time.

    The Mclaurens look similar to a pair of Mark Mcnairy longwing boots I had a year ago, which were quite badass but I didn't end up wearing them much...
