    damn srivats, I was just about to give up on owning a pair of the #8 PTB's, but your post gives me second thoughts

    Don't sell - PTBs are a must have for any alden fan! You'll regret and buy a new pair later [​IMG]

    Another question from an Alden noob here. I'm looking to purchase a pair of Longwings. The last is a Barrie, which should run like a Trubalance, right? Thanks!

    You skinny footed types. Pfffft. [​IMG]

    Not skinny enough perhaps. [​IMG] I bought a pair of AE Wing tips a while back at Nordy Rack for ~50% off of the retail price, even sized .5 up to have the length fit properly. I thought the width would stretch out a bit, but no good. The width is too restricting so now it's just collecting dust in the closet. Perhaps I'll throw it on sale here when I get a decent amount of post counts.

    And those Longwings are ordered! Estimate time of delivery is mid October, lol. [​IMG]

    They're the J. Crew Alden LongWings in Tobacco. It said the estimate shipping time is around Mid October, although they did state that it can be earlier, later, or on time. I think they overestimate the time frame so customers won't get pissed off. Either way, I can wait. Too hot to be rocking them in the summer anyway.

    ^Gotcha. Great rotation BTW. I'm trying to slow down now, but I fear Aldens will become a habit. [​IMG]

    ^ Thank you ...

    And here is some whiskey for the afternoon -- I am not a big fan of the lighter whiskey shade, but these shoes are darker and they are darkening to a beautiful shade of brown.

    (aberdeen last captoe bals in whiskey shell -- my favourite shoe in my collection)
