    Yeah, those are my Indy's (new in pic). Pretty sure they were MTO and ended up at The Shoe Mart. A lighter #4...more like Ravello [​IMG]

    My very first pair of boots was a pair of Wolverine 1000 miles in a rust cxl, comfortable as all get out. I'd love to find a pair of Alden PTB in brown CXL w/commando soles for winter wear. Any one know a source?

    Hi El
    I'm 9d in the Leydon lwb fr Epaulet. At The advice of Citishoes, went with the 9e snuff chukka for my widish foot. No problems here. If anything, it old be nice to have some roominess for such a casual, slipper-like shoe.

    Pull the trigger and enjoy in good health, my friend.

    I have several pairs of suede Aldens - chukkas, saddles, LHS - but they're still pretty pristine. However I noticed this photo on Leffot's tumblr site that might help you: http://leffot.tumblr.com/post/56696709018/alden-suede-party-at-leffot

    J. Gilbert did a black/4 saddle shoe last year (LS did a blucher version - JG model was not). I am the proud owner of one such pair.

    EDIT: sorry - just realized several folks already mentioned the JG 4/black saddle. But it is worth mentioning more than once -- it's a great looking shoe.

    Hey El':

    Same experience for me. I walked into Alden SF with my #8 PCT boots in 7.5D Barrie. The SA recommended the 8E in the unlined Leydon chukka boots I wanted. I tried the 8D and 8E and the E was definitely better. The D was a bit too tight across the instep for me.

    Gorgeous gunboats El. Since you have so many beautiful and handsomely shined Alden shoes have you turned any of your fellow legal eagles to the dark side of shell cordovan addiction? I miss your creative Snapseed pics.
