    Hey guys,

    Last Monday, I had the pleasure of visiting the Alden factory. We had an awesome time. I took an absolutely ridiculous amount of photos and video. Within the week, I hope to have a full gallery of still shots to show you. This place is a true feast for the eyes.

    The video is going to take a bit longer, as I have no idea how to edit it. But I'm going to learn!

    Nice, look forward to seeing those pics!

    Hey the "stimulus" discount code at Sherman Brothers seems to have expired.
    Is there a new one?

    lovemypop is 10% off. I'm tempted to buy a pair of the unlined chukkas, but want to figure out my size in the leydon last first. I'm a 8.5D in the Barrie, but if the Leydon is slightly narrow, I might want a 9E...

    Any help would be appreciated.

    you probably won't be able to wear the shoe at all. I have feet that are slightly wide (not even an E) and I couldn't get a pair of the unlined to fit me comfortably.

    go to the dc shop and give them a try. I might go back again and check some more out. my barrie lasted ones have worn in VERY nicely, although they need some repairs (need to get unlazy and drop em off)..

    Do you have these Barrie lasted Chukkas? [​IMG] I was a fan of the natural heal on the Leydon lasted ones but I'll go try them on first.
