    Thanks to all.

    Awhile ago, I got some excellent help from many members here at styleforum regarding how to buy Alden's at a pretty good price and what to look for in terms of lasts, the value of shell cordovan, etc.

    All of this help was hugely helpful and completely changed how I buy proper dress shoes. And most important of all, it resulted in my having the best pair of shoes I have ever owned.

    THANK YOU>

    Does have 6 eyelets. Very nice, unique.

    By the way, it seems to fit similar to the LWB, Barrie.

    ^ mediahound, way to jump on an opportunity. Nice score! If I wasn't waiting on almost the same thing in a boot I would've joined you.

    I'm really liking 'em so far I must say.

    They have an interesting profile which is different than a standard 5 eyelet Alden.

    For some reason it looks more...
    [​IMG]
    ...Than other barrie lasted shoes. Maybe they just need to be creased, or perhaps its the six eyelets.

    Congratulations none-the-less, and as always, wear in good health!

    My socks are what make them look a bit like that.

    Not feeling those at all, but then again i'm not a fan of the medallion cap. Clean cap toe or death.
