    nephew,
    i agree that the hair blower method should work on the white bloom. in regard to the creases, use a damp cloth and rub in the creases. if this does not work,get in touch with your seller and if no progress, go to the Company

    nephew,
    the rule of thumb is that you size down half size. in my case, i do not

    I hear the BB PTB is on the M58 last and is TTS. In my experience the Alden for BB shoes are TTS but YMMV.

    Nope: M-58 last (made only for BB as I understand it).

    Some go 1/2 size down; some go TTS.

    It is somewhat similar to Barrie.

    Alden for BB PTB is indeed on the M-58 last. The M-58 last is very similar to Barrie, but perhaps a TAD more snug. Hardly noticeable in my opinion, however. I wear the same size in Barrie and M-58. I have 8 pairs on Barrie and two on M-58 and I'm 9.5D in all 10 pairs.

    While we're on the topic of Alden BB PTB, I should also mention the following differences: Alden for BB PTB has no storm welt, thus has, IMO, a sleeker profile. It also has matching eyelet covers, as opposed to the blind eyelets on the factory PTB. These are a matter of preference, but all told, I'm a bigger fan of the Alden for BB. Some don't like the eyelet covers, but to me, once you wear them you will decide whether you like them better or not. I didn't like the eyelet covers at first glance, but now I love them.

    Come to think of it, I also didn't like coffee, scotch, cigars or dark chocolate the first time I tried them, either.

    Others may disagree and that's cool, too.

    I totaly disagree - Coffee, Scotch, Cigars and Dark Chocolate are great the first time you try them. :)
