    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Alden makes C width in a lot of their regular/stock models. I wear a C and in my experience, if the Alden store doesn't have it, they can order from the factory. However for the exotics and special retailer make-ups, you'll have to pre-order. So if you need immediate gratification, you're going to be frustrated. But with patience and luck, you can get the right size.

    i also "suffer" from narrow heels/low instep/low volume foot so i feel your pain. an A/D shoe would work really well for me, but unfortunately Alden no longer offers combination lasts that deviate more than two letters (i.e. more than A/C, B/D, or C/E), even though they still market this feature. it's for this reason i mostly stick to alden boots now as the extra lacing provides better support and a more comfortable fit. luckily i'm more of a boot guy than an lwb guy. i do wish the suede dovers fit me better though.

    Very well done all around. I am willing to make an exception for the crotch shot, provided there is additional shell cordovan within proximity.

    i was not a fan of modified too but when you wear the proper sized shoe & you feel the comfort it is only psychological after that. my feet looked longer & more stylish. the guys there are fun you should visit if you get the chance. no rare shell, they have some ptb makeups of their own that are interesting. they have been working with Alden for 20yrs. ask for Cosmos

    I'm usually not as big on cigar as most of you guys but I do love the color and patina on those.

    +1, I'm hoping the new Cigar batch from Alden NYC scheduled for delivery sometime around June looks like this, a nice chocolate brown with slight olive hues.

    Leffot LWB's again today. In natural light doing my best to not post an inadvertent crotch shot. Hopefully the tie covers

    If it had to, I feel as though my wardrobe could live off of Color #8 and Natural CXL

    I think you'd be hard pressed to find two leather/shades with more versatility.

    I really love the light edge trim on Color 8.

    You scored there.
    They would have looked like that after a walk down your driveway.

    My size 10s are arriving today to replace the 10.5s I ordered incorrectly. I'm actually hoping mine look like that so I can get a discount! What an unbelievable price for shell LWBs that have essentially just been tried on and walked around on a hardwood floor a few times!
