1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hundred, do ever take those #8 plain toe boots off-road, or are they strictly an urban animal?

    [​IMG][​IMG]Guys ,

    I need some help , I ordered my first pair of Alden , I don't have acces to Alden stores so ordered them online and I'm in the process of finding my right size , This pics are of a 9.5d , they feel comfortable but they are soft suede , I'd like to make sure of my size before I order the more expensive shell ones.[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    You guys think I should try an E? , I'm normally D width in Cole Haan,florsheim etc , and EE in italian loafers( Ferragamo etc , but these run very narrow).

    Your help is apprecciated .

    Thanks.

    [​IMG]

    And to make sure these are on the Barrie last since I'm no expert with these codes etc.[​IMG]

    I also read somewhere on this thead that the shell LWB are a bit roomier than the PTB, is that true?


    Thanks.

    Mind if I ask where you've located a pair of snuff suede tassel loafers? It is a model I've been hunting down for quite some time. Thank you.

    Disagree 100% that Plaza looks too dressy for denim.

    All of JGilbert's color 8 boots on the Plaza go great with denim (and many other things).

    Unipair and Brooks Brothers have them

    I have the snuff LHS so I will not get the tassels. A tan tassel loafer would be great though...

    Jerks. Only carry D widths.

    Unipair also carries Alden snuff suede tassel loafers.

    Calceo speaks the truth. I've had very good luck calling Alden correct or the retailer who sold me the shoes. Actually, last time it happened, the retailer sent me three sets of laces.




    Some SF members have had good luck estimating their Alden sizes and ordering online. Some have not.

    And there really is no substitute for trying on a variety of sizes. The difference between a 9.5D, 9.5E, 10C, 10D, or even 9EE is not that much. Even though small changes in size can dramatically effect your comfort.

    It might take some time and expense to reach an Alden dealer, but if you expect to stay with the brand it will help you for many years to come. Just remember that some dealers carry a narrow range of sizes. The three Alden branded stores, San Francisco, NY, & DC are the most likely to carry a range of widths.

    I agree. Leathersoul had an Alden make-up of a tan suede tassel loafer in the past, but does not have it now.

    Personally, I would love to see a longwing tassel loafer in snuff suede and tan suede. As the young folk say, that would be epic and boss.

    Start a MTO list. I would go for the snuff suede.
