    Thanks J can you comment on the quality of these if you have experience?

    The quality is pretty good. Mostly cotton with very little stretch. Fairly thick. American made.
    It's a good sock!

    Those look awesome!!!! I love the black shell with natural edge-trim.

    Here's my guess:

    Navy Blucher High boot in Black Shell Cordovan or Reverse Tobacco Chamois

    Barrie last, All around regular welt, Double water-lock sole, Matching agatine eyelets, Natural Edge-trim, and Goodyear heel unit.

    You've learned well, my son.

    Excuse my newbiness as i haven't owned a pair of aldens. I was wondering if someone could tell me how much of a difference there is between a C and D width in the Indy boot. I believe I'm a pretty standard width - i have both redwing 875 and wolverine 1000 mile boots both in D widths. I have a chance at buying a pair of used Indys in my size but in a C width and i wasn't sure if i was asking for trouble if i pulled the trigger. Thanks in advance for any replies.

    I just got the unlined chukkas in 8D on the leydon last. They fit well but I wouldn't want them any narrower but I have a feeling they will stretch a little. Would I be a 7.5D in barrie?

    IMHO, you guys would be better off visiting a local shoe store and get measured on a brannock device. Once you know you're true size, use this as a guide and proceed from there.


    Just a teaser of one of the first LSBH models I thought SW&D would enjoy...

    Re-quoted... needed to see that again!

    +1 on the Natural Edge Trim. I would like this on all my boots personally.

    Wow. All that detail from those few pics. Impressive!

    Tom, you are killing me! I really want a black boot from Alden with natural trim edges (even suggested as a make-up a few months ago [​IMG] )

    I guess you won't be making that boot in a black calf leather I suppose?

    So anybody want to take the tan suede flex welt chukkas off my hands? Will sell for $300 shipped. Have been worn once, but I just can't get into the brown stitching at the welt. PM me if interested, and sorry for momentarily turning this into B&S. Thanks Alden for the $100 loss.. [​IMG]

    Alden shoes run essentially true to width on the brannock device?

    Leathersoul just got in some V-tips in Barrie last.

    What are your opinions on the V-tips?
    The NST stitching looks a lot more sturdy than these, and I'm not sure how they would look well worn.

    You never know. Sounds like a good idea.

    In a perfect world, May 10. In a not so perfect world, whenever my landlord feels like hooking up the building's fire alarm system so we can open. [​IMG] <- never used that one before.

    Tom,
    How long are you going to be in L.A. around the store opening? I would love to come in and say hi!
    I live in San Francisco and would have to come down on a weekend.

    I have to be in Tokyo so I won't be there at opening. I don't even know when we're opening because the landlord needs to hook us up to the alarm system and he's not replying to my calls and emails. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
