    I love all 3 of these but there is something extra elegant about color 8 shells with the antique welt. Very nice collection.

    You may be misunderstanding what has been written. If all that is present is the line making the cap toe, Alden calls them straight tips but still categorizes them under cap toe. If there are perforations/broguing, Alden refers to them as cap toe followed by the description of the perforations/broguing.

    You will not find "straight tip" on the name of any of Aldens shoes that have perforations/broguing. If I am wrong, forgive me. We are all friends here, no need for frustration or condescension in tone. Good day gents...

    I see Blackbird is shutting its doors. I picked up a couple unique make-ups from them over the past few years. While their relationship with Alden sort of petered out recently, I had hoped they might resurrect something in the future. If anyone is into that gothic, hipster, vampire look, they're blowing out their existing inventory.

    Bakes - I still haven't figured out how to post a link to the listing. In my defense for not posting before pictures (and this is a flimsy defense) but this one was nothing like last weeks where the shoes were beat up shells that I didn't if they could be restored. After completion, I was pretty proud of my work. With these shoes, I just got lucky. I put the better part of 15 minutes of effort in them and other than the Saphir renovater, I didn't do anything that I don't normally do to my shoes. Again, it's a flimsy defense and I will absolutely take pictures before my next reclamation project.

    nephew,
    you did very will, the soles indicate that the shoes have been hardly worn.

    How does the Hampton last fit? I'm wear a:

    10.5D Barrie/Truebalance
    10.5E Aberdeen
    11E Leydon

    Would I take a 10.5E or an 11D Hampton?

    Congrats on a great haul. Alden DC has been a great source for many of my rare shell shoe and belt catches. Job well done. I've been off the hunt lately. Finishing up a remodel project that one part of it had issues and I had to jump in and get tough. Another thing is it finally hot here so business is booming. I'm earning some money for a fall surge! Watch out. To be honest I still have over a 1/2 dozen pairs I still need to break in via the Mac protocol..

    Glad to see everyone is doing well.

    See Ya,
    Steve

    10.5E if I had to guess.

    I wear 10.5D Barrie and 11E Hampton. The latter is a bit roomier.

    My color8 LWBs have threads coming out at 2 places. I am aware that many people face these quality issues with alden. Could friends on the forum guide me as to what I should do? Should I snip the thread with a pair of scissors or. Can I just let them be?
