    I saw the sizing chart so sorry if I'm asking a stupid question but what size would I wear on a trubalance last if I wear 42 in MMM, 9 in most shoes, and an 8M in Frye? An 8.5? Thanks.

    Yeah, that sounds about right. Size down 1/2 size from your dress shoe size. Same goes with the Barrie last. I am a 12D in most dress shoes and take a 11.5D in Trubalance/Barrie lasts

    Just a FYI, Shoemart got their natural chromoexel Indy Oxfords in. I grabbed a pair earlier this morning.

    Bought those a couple of months ago. Still haven't worn them yet.. [​IMG]

    Very nice, I have the same pair. I'm hoping mine get a little lighter as I wear them more.

    Ive wanted these shoes for years....it was finally time to suck it up and order them. Thanks to Adam at Alden of Carmel for the super fast service, I ordered sunday and got them Tuesday. Here are the virgin pictures...they will only be virgin until tomorrow [​IMG]

    I agree. I don't know anything about MMM or Frye sizing, but if you are a 9 in most dress shoes, you are most likely an 8.5 on the Trubalance last.

    LOL, I saved that last guide to my desktop. It's saved me a lot of time searching through this thread for it.

    Get a load of this: http://www.barneys.com/Perforated-Wi...efault,pd.html Are Barney's customers so stupid they actually WANT to pay $150 more for the same pair of shoes (okay, the color is a bit different) than necessary?These are just longwing bluchers in calfskin. Nice shoe, but $610? I guess Barney's people don't have the internet.

    So I just ordered a pair of the Indy boot with a commando sole in #8. (Thanks to illumin8em for sizing help!)

    Thanks also to this thread! I was about to get black, but a lot of your posts convinced me to go with #8. It seems to go with just about everything.

    One question: I notice that Shoe Mart's site doesn't mention the cordovan coming from Horween. I just assumed that all cordovan that Alden uses comes from that factory.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    I've been watching videos and am obsessed with this leather now.

    You stated yourself...it's the color. That makes all the difference. I have not seen that particular hue elsewhere. For those who love the color tint..why not and get them? Perhaps someone else who has every other Aldens under the sun will want them as well.

    what last is this on? And is it shell? From looking at the entire offering, it appears the the shoes in "burgundy" are cordovan. EDIT - I think the shoes at the $565 and up pricepoint are all Cordovan but arent marked as such

    Agree (and if they are shell, then they are cheaper than the Alden Shop...)
