    OK. I have to ask: what is this business about calling Mac "Uncle" and him calling everyone else "nephew?" I hope someone will please explain this to me. I love Alden shoes, but this convention on an internet site is . . . , well, unusual.

    The unsualness factor recently increased when some guy began calling himself "grandpa" and calling Mac "Grandson" even though Mac plainly has not been a grandson for many a moon.

    Please explain.

    You can either find a preorder, call the usual suspects and see if they can put your size on their next order, or get lucky and see if they have your size in stock.

    There is rarely a quick and easy answer for EE and EEE when it comes to Alden.

    Well, I just got my Indys in from j.crew, and while I was concerned about the sizing since I normally wear a 10d on the Barrie, my bigger dilemma is the moc seam on the right boot. Do you guys think this is uneven enough that it warrants replacing them?

    Our cat likes Alden, too.

    anyone own the Jcrew x Alden tobacco calf LWB?

    I wanted to know how they age. colorwise. They are kind of dull as I just got my pair in the mail today.

    any pics?

    Their patina and aging will all depend on the love and care (and products) you put into them.

    I think Wisith had a pair.
