    Wore my new cigar LWBs today. People didn't even know the beauty passing before them.

    Greetings, I am looking for some sizing advice. My Indy boots are too big so it's not as easy as size up one half size. I wear Allen Edmonds 5 last in 8.5. My Darltons fit perfect at size 7.5. My Rancourt pennies are 8 and a little loose. Clark's desert boots are 8. Polo made in Italy wax suede wings are 8.

    My Indys are too big but I don't know if its a full size or half a size so I don't want to use that as a reference. I've done a lot of searching to look for size comparisons and even length comparisons so I'm not just trying to throw this question out there ignorantly....although that may seem the case.

    Ay size recommendations for Plaza last?

    Thank - you.

    It would also be nice if they offered size 12.5 for those of us with big feet! I sent them an email, and basically got back a response consisting of "sorry."

    Similar for those of us with wide. I understand nobody will order a ton of wides, but none? For shoes that might not arrive until babies conceived today are born?

    so they're just copying the j. crew version? no point in that. they're available at j. crew online and many brick and mortar j. crew stores. i have them. i love them... but not particularly original.

    360 vs 270 welt, stitching on the side of the boot is different, eyelets vs speedhooks. It's good to have options :)

    leffot is two blocks from my office. i would do it just as a courtesy if they let you pay for them and then let me pick them up... i would have no problem shipping them to you when they arrive (in god knows how long).

    Ya I don't think it's appropriate for you to wear pink shoes to work. But your student has some nice Aldens :p

    Off the wall question: what is the smallest size Alden makes their Indys in? My wife would like a pair, but wears a 7 in women's running shoes, which would translate to roughly a 4 or 4.5 in Alden Indy Boots. Any thoughts?
