    Yes - a difference in product, method, and frequency.

    Your Hampton size will most likely be your Aberdeen size. If you are a 9C in Aberdeen and a 9.5E in Hampton, I will be completely baffled. If you get two sizes, I would suggest some combination of 9C, 9D, 9.5C and 9.5D. Obviously availability will play a part in whether you can readily get them in C widths.

    I believe Alden SF ships for free, but a trip to Alden NY is a good idea. Nothing beats tryng on the shoes. The crew at Alden NY is very good. They were a big help when I dropped in over there.

    I too prefer the welt left dark. I have color 8 tassels with antique edging (BNelson) - but I left the welt dark. Nice boots.

    Keep the ones with single row stitching.

    Definitely keep the one with the single row of stitching, and definitely keep the J.Crew cap-toe boot, it's seriously one of the best-looking Alden makeups I've seen.

    I am thinking of getting the Indy boots in black, and the only place I can find that has the black in CXL is Epaulet (others are the calfskin). But I am hesitant to order from them because they have strict no-refund policy. Pretty sure my size is 10D, but sometimes an individual pair differs slightly, and I while I don't plan to return them, I'd like to have the option. (Also, if 10D didn't work I would normally exchange for 9.5E, which Epaulet does not offer.)

    So, my question is, anyone know of another place that offers the Indy boot in black CXL?

    Also, anyone have a pics of some broken in black CXLs?

    Thanks.

    Thanks so much for this! I didn't know, and will follow up with them about it...

    In the meantime, any pics of worn in black CXL?

    My gateway Alden shoe to many dollars spent. Perfect for running errands on a Sunday!
