    A few weeks back I had wonderful CS from the guys at each Epaulet shop when deciding on a Carmina shell boot.

    Question: I am visiting Seattle later this month. Besides J Gilbert's, is there any store that stocks Alden that is worth checking out? (Or stores that stock shell shoes of other brands like C&J and Carmina?)

    Thanks!

    I couldn't agree more. A path that can truly lead to madness...

    Great post a few pages back in regards to your sizing and what works best. I can imagine quite the trial and tribulations to get to that point

    That sounds interesting. I love the plaza last. Do you have a link or pic of the boot you are referring to?

    AoC is in Sequim which is a ferry ride and an hour's drive away from Seattle.
    Plus they don't have a showroom.

    There is no place to get Carmina or C&J in Seattle.
    J Gilbert is about it when it comes to nice shoes.

    Thank for your input. I may go the route suggested ordering 2 sizes then returning the one that doesn't fit.
    Any recommendations where to find these shoes cheaper than shoe mart and with a good return policy?

    Most Alden retailers, if not all, will insist on full retail particularly if they are liberal with returns. Accepting returns is a service for which one usually must pay.

    Note: I believe all Plaza lasted models on AoC's website are carried by JGilbert. At least that was the case the last time I checked.
