    These look great. They are on the Leydon last, right? If you have a unlined suede chukka on Leydon, I was hoping you could comment on how the unlined suede sizing compares with the LWB. I've been eyeing the Epaulet site for these but can't pull the trigger because of unsure sizing. I wear a 8.5D in the chukka but I've read in the posts that the E in the chukka is equivalent to a regular D. So not sure if I'm a 8.5C in non-chukka make-up.

    Thank you for the info. I'll probably spend most of Sunday morning calling various BB locations now that I know there may be a chance. I'll start with the Madison Ave. flagship.

    We started watching "house of cards" today. I was excited to see the main character polishing his shoes with alden brushes and products. He was working on 6 pairs, mostly calf, but I couldn't tell with certainty if they were all Aldens or not.

    I'm aware some folks see Aldens in the wild regularly, but this is as close as it gets for me.

    I pay a lot of attention out there to what's on men's feet. In NYC (downtown, at least) I see AllenEdmonds about 10x as much as I see Alden. Only Aldens I've ever seen are Indys, LWB, and calf NSTs.

    You will probably only need to call one store, and they can check the inventory of stores nation wide for you. They have done if for me before.

    Good Luck.

    I am completely with you. Was thinking of emailing to see if it could be ordered with the other buckle. Not going to spend $425 on a belt with a buckle I don't like.
