    You have to use their JCrew store card (or apply for one and use) to get 25% off...I just wish they had one I was even remotely interested in...

    I really like black shell. Shell has wonderful qualities that transcend merely color.:nodding:

    The J Crew chukkas are on the Barrie and I'm pretty sure the ones you posted are on the Leydon last.

    Who knew? the Alden LHS seems a tiny bit bigger than the Brooks Brothers LHS same size 9D. Odd, the Alden LHS seems 1/4 size larger, this might account for heel slippage. Wondering how many wears till the soles become nice and flexible. I have about 10 wears so far and they are not even close in comfort to my old BB #8 LHS. I hope they loosen up soon, if I went down a half to 8.5D they would be too short and hurt my 2nd toe.

    In my experience, all Alden for BB shoes fit TTS regardless of the last.

    My BB fit TTS (1 pair)

    My Aldens I had to size down half size and 1 width. (2 pairs)

    They take a long time to break in. 1 pair I got in February and wear once or twice a week, and they are only now feeling broken in.

    You say the 8.5D would be too short, maybe a 9C is your answer to the heel slip. That worked for me, the D with had too much volume in the heel.

    I am TTS 9.5D.
    My regular Barrie size is 9D.
    My color 8 Alden for BB LHS is 9C.
    My whiskey LHS is 9C (and these are slightly looser than the BB LHS's; and took slightly longer to break in).
    A 9D in the LHS has too much heel slippage for me.

    I'd say their PTB fits very close to a Barrie in the same size, so size .5 down, rather than TTS.

    The Alden for BB PTB is on the M-58 last.
    IMO, it is not quite as roomy as the Barrie, yet it is larger than TTS.
    I am TTS 9.5D.
    My Barrie size is 9D.
    My M-58 size is 9.5C (a 9D is slightly too snug and a 9.5D is too roomy).
