    I've read through the thread but I can't remember if there's a consensus on where to look for replacement laces for Alden shoes/boots? Anyone have any positive recommendations?

    email alden and they will send you a pair. their customer service is good, but its a shame their laces are such crap.

    Nice!!! are those the Fox River "monkey" socks?

    did you grab those at Unionmade?


    Jason, these are some Polo cotton socks. Not sure what else to call them, but they are kind of medium thickness and work well for ptb's and chukkas. I don't like to wear chukkas with really thin socks.

    Cool. I like medium thick socks for chukkas too.

    I thought they might have been these, which I love.

    Leather Soul
    The Shoe Mart
    Brooks Brothers.
    Epaulet
    Alden of Carmel/J Gilbert.

    In that order.


    There are a couple of aldens I'm interested in at shoemart but they do not ship alden to Australia.. I have no idea why. Does anyone have any experience with this? Maybe someone on here might proxy them to me.

    I was at the Alden SF store today chatting with Robert and Jim and a kid comes in and says "I'm from out of town and I want to get fitted for every last"

    Robert and I looked at each other like "Oh mannnn"

    The guys at the shop are willing to accomodate requests like this because they are professional and nice and provide top service, but that is asking A LOT. It takes a long time to get fitted for just one shoe when you consider the different widths.

    I am an Alden fan and I get the need to know your exact size, but really? I also get the other side because I sell Aldens now.

    All I can say is that dude better post his exact findings on this thread so everyone can benefit!


    This dude?

    Ordered cigar lhs from shoemart, can't wait to get them. They'll fit in nicely with my whiskey lhs. It doesn't seem to be a popular Alden style around these parts!

    Really? The LHS seems to have (at the very least) a healthy cult following.

    Ive looked at this whole thread and don't remember seeing many pics, mostly boots. I'll have to go back and have another look.
