    Yes. They are great. Kathy in DC helped me with these. I went with my Barrie last size for the Tremont. The fit is a little snugger but quite comfortable.

    No problem.

    I picked up a pair of the black unlined LHS earlier this year on another corporate sale.
    I was sort of surprised to find they fit a bit tighter than my lined one.
    Dunno if that's just production variation or an attribute of the unlined vs lined.

    My unlined suede PTBs are significantly more snug.

    It seems like most people here have commented that unlined suede typically fits a tad snugger than their lined counterparts in pretty much every situation.

    You are right. You don't see them on here too often.

    They were my first pair of shell and my first pair of Alden's




    Wear in good health!

    This is so true. The fit is different between the two. I now have Whiskeys lined that are going to require insoles... One would think same size .. same Van last. The unlined version is a better fit for me. I have #8 unlined ... Just sent them to Alden for refurbishing .. Again many thanks!!

    As posted by notwithit on the sale thread ... 25% off everything at rooneyshop.com with MEMORIAL ... they still have Aldens (no shell) left over from their last sale.

    My shell unlined LHS from BB are more snug than my shell lined LHS.
