    looks like they do, for those they have in stock. That's what the little "h" is.

    One of Alden's strangest lasts - at least for my foot.

    A while back I bought and return some of the unlined suede chukkas in 11D. They were definitely tight on me (10.5E/11D Barrie, 11D Van lined and Grant, 11E/11.5D Aberdeen/Hampton). They might have stretched out considering the material, but I'm not sure that would be a good look for that particular shoe. I'd take a shot at 11E assuming an agreeable return policy.

    In honor of the maiden voyage of my cigar plain toe, my apartment has given me the gift of shitty lighting.

    I am 12D TTS, 11E TB, 11.5 Barrie, 12D Van and took at 12D in the Leydon unlined chukka very comfortably. Probably all the reason to do your best to try them on first. I realize not everyone has the luxury of an Alden store to try everything on first to get your ideal size on all lasts, but getting the proper fit is so important it might be worth ordering a few from ShoeMart and eating the shipping to send back what doesn't work. Although I have no clue if TSM has the unlined chukka.

    Those Cigar PTBs look great.
    Interesting to see the CIgar PTB w/ crepe sole without the dover pattern.
