    Most go down 1/2 size from normal. I can actually go a full size down from my normal tennis shoe size. I would say it depends, definitely go smaller than your regular tennis shoe size.

    I suspect it is the color variation problem during the dyeing process.
    I have heard uncle mac said if the spot really bothers you, you should contact Alden directly, tell them / email them with picture, and return the shoes to Alden for re-dyeing.
    I am not sure it can 100% fix the problem, but you should try.

    I got them from Hunt Club Clothiers in Cincinnatti on sale, from pre-increase prices (I bought them literally the day before the price increase). Not saying exactly what deal I got but they took good care of me.

    These shoes are a dream to wear. I never want to take them off my feet.

    Wind was blowing so I think it made the trousers drape funny. Let me know what you think.

    I did not know however I'm not surprised to find that out. It has been an invaluable resource for me. I like the top view side by side comparison it really illustrates the differences in lasts very well.

    Yes, Shoe Mart is also leather sole on the Barrie. However, mine ended up coming from Alden NYC and I cancelled my Shoe Mart order. I am pretty sure mine will look identical to yours but will post pictures tomorrow when I get home.

    BTW, which other Alden exotics are you considering?
