    Gentlemen, as discussed earlier, I, unfortunately, need to sell these. I would prefer to someone a denizen of this thread gets them, however should I get no takers, I will list them on the bay. I have the bags and the box as well. Whiskey short wings on the Tremont 8E worn less than a half dozen times.

    Looks good. I would try the bar horizontal lacing technique with these.

    You know you have problems when you are on the train home and see a pair of shoes/boots you like and google them, find them, and drool.

    Leather Soul, Alden, suede, wingtip boots, brass eyelets.

    I covet these more than any other Alden model. I had a very small window of opportunity about 2 years ago and blew it!

    The above are the newer version of the tobacco waxed LWB from J Crew. They look delightful! For comparison purposes, below is my three year old version which has not changed in color at all. The newer version is a little darker and more brown, as opposed to the more orange-looking color of the old pair.

    Some how these pics look pretty similar, but to the naked eye (in person) there is a significant difference.

    A very underrated Alden model my friend. Enjoy often and in great health...

    BTW, there is a nice, lightly used pair of the 974 on ebay I am considering for $350. There seems to be some unsightly creasing on the ones up for auction. I am assuming it was from an improper fit. If the fit is proper for me, might I be able to work the creases out with a nice break-in period? Or are these creases there for the duration? Thoughts anyone??

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/111189065872?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

    I know, I should jump on the NST boots, but please humor me. Thanks in advance...

    I think they're in very good condition, I wouldn't be concerned with creasing.
    If you are a Barrie size 10, then tremont size 10 will be too tight. I'm a Barrie size 10 and wear tremont 10.5 tts.
