    I think they fit different - word is the BB LHS is on the Copley last. I also went TTS when I bought the BB LHS (vs. going down 1/2 size with the Alden LHS).

    The unlined version, from what I could tell, actually fits a bit tigher than the lined version

    I have made the Van last work by going up a width from 9.5E to 9.5EE. IIRC, you are a 10D, so I would investigate a 10E if you have a high instep.

    Way to rain on my parade guys.

    Whenever I've tried an E width, the heel fit gets sloppy. Sizing down in length and up in width isn't for me. Either the last is right, or I'm destined to not wear that shoe.

    Based upon my sample space of one, I found that the unlined version fit tighter than the lined one too.

    Epaulet #8 which appears to be Cigar in any but the brightest light (and flash).

    Great images of a fantastic shoe!!

    I can't get enough of these Alt Weins. A blucher semi brogue in shell w/light edge trim is a great set of details, making for a unique makeup. Epaulet hit a home run with these! I wish I noticed them when they had a full size run. It looks like they've already placed a re-order on the color 8 version and have other leathers in the pipeline.

    I've been waffling on these. If what you say is true, I might have to pull the trigger. Zipp, I'm assuming the plum color comes out more when they crease?

    That's my assumption.
    I'm pretty sure you need them.
    Buy or buy not; there is no waffling when it comes to Aldens.
