    It was one of the first Alden models J Crew sold IIRC, so for at least a couple of years

    I figured that. I would still have a hard time not babying them anyway. [​IMG]

    Looking fairly close to your native color of choice (at least in this pic)... [​IMG] Maybe a great shoe to wear to tailgating and cocktail parties on Saturday afternoons in the fall in Austin.

    The Barrie last has similar sizing to the Trubalance last generally used for Indy boots. I think you'd want 6D in Barrie LWB.

    Very tempting. And the price isn't outrageous (still a bit high). I don't think I got a chance to try the military last. But I see Lakota House has ordered up to size 11. That could be a good sign.

    Follow Up:

    The Larges ended up being great in terms of width and volume, but they were just a hair too long. If they were a half cm shorter they would have been perfect. Ultimately, they don't fit in my 9D Hampton/Aberdeens.

    Just thought I would mention in case anyone wants to use my experience as a proxy for determining their own size.

    That looks like a Moulded Shoe special make-up.
