    Are the Alden trees somehow different from what you can get at woodlore/cedarville? They look the same from pics, but I don't have the Alden trees to compare.

    nah, the only thing special about them is they say alden on them. so nerds like me can have their lame alden shrine in the closet...guilty as charged hahah

    Yeah, it's sad but true. They're one of the few stores other than Shoe Mart that almost always has a 10C in what I want. I'm just still a bit stunned. I've spent some serious coin at that shop. Well 4 pairs for me is serious coin ha
    Four pairs of Aldens do amount to serious coin. Don't let the big timers around here fool you, nor those enjoying employee discounts.

    PTB's are one of the few pairs of Aldens that always look better on someone elses feet. Sadly, never my own.

    Your shoes always have the best shine but this is beyond your usual shine. These shoes have an angelic shine and depth. [​IMG]

    Great pickup! Thanks for the pics.

    You cannot look from above. Take some pictures from at least a few feet away. If you do not like them then see about PTB's on plaza last.

    After some heavy reading through a substantial amount of this thread I have come to two conclusions...

    1) I am a complete idiot for never owning a pair of Alden's

    2) michaelw has the best sock collection I have ever seen.

    I just received a pair of Ravello Chukka's on the Barrie Last. Out of the box, they felt and looked a bit wide for my feet. Instead of following my instinct and returning them, I wore them a full day of travel through numerous airports. This means that I can't return them...oh well.
    Does anyone carry a Ravello Chukka on the plaza last? I love the Ravello, especially on the Chukka but would rather have a better fitting shoe than what the Barrie is.
