    This NRO sale reminds me that I'm still waiting on a pair of tan suede chukkas that I bought the last time their sale didn't exclude Aldens.......about 6 months ago. I just tried calling their customer service and they were "unavailable" and I was forwarded to voicemail. Oh yeah, and my card was charged when the order was placed, but I still have no ETA on when I'll get my chukkas.

    For me, the Barrie is 1/2 size down from TTS. My Leydon is TTS; however, if I buy another Leydon (doubtful), I would consider going 1/2 size up from TTS.

    But most go TTS.

    Not to be a Debbie Downer, but don't you guys read? The NRO email clearly says Aldens are excluded. If you'd have actually dealt with these imbeciles in their brick and mortar store (I have), you'd keep your credit cards in your wallets.

    I'll admit, the savings definitely had me close to pulling the trigger on some 975, but the documented issues with NRO kept me from going thru with it

    I have those in both black and #8, pretty much my go to dress shoes, I rarely go a week without wearing both. I like the Hampton last, 10D in it and 9.5D in the Barrie.

    You can't go wrong at that price, assuming they will actually follow through on the order.

    I got em in Black and #8 too. I like them just fine. Bought them for wear with suits. Aberdeen/Hampton 9D Barrie/Van 9C I consider my true size US9.5 (Tod's & Gucci Loafers)

    986 (Sorry for the indoor lighting, but it is night time.

    I decided to pull the trigger on a pair of color 8 tassel mocs... $495 with NRO's sale. I'm prepared to be disappointed. If it goes through great; if not, oh well. Thanks for the feedback and help!
