    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.

    Some unique models from Unionmade. If only those wingtips were black with a natural sole :fu:

    Anyone know how the "New Hampton" last fits?

    He finally answered today and it is even more annoying that by the response I got it was very clear he never called Alden to ask to see if make the Grant in a 5.5E. I work part time in retail, so maybe I expect too much.

    Hi,

    I posted this in Tricker's thread since my Eaton is what fits me best but someone told me to try here.

    Id be interested to try Alden but likely no chance to try them where I live.
    Im UK7,5 in Tricker's last 4497/4444 (fit very well), what would I need to order? Im interested in Leffot Day Tripper Boot which is built on Grant last.

    I'd say US8 "Steven" recommands to order the same size than with Barrie last and many people at Tricker's thread go like :

    Tricker's country lasts UK8=Alden Barrie US8,5

    Correct me if Im wrong.

    Also, what would be the Alden fitting comparable to 4497 or 4444 fit 5?


    Now that I read the last page, I wonder if it makes any sense to try to figure out my size as I might not even get a slot for next year Leffot Day Tripper cap toe order :(

    Yep, you missed out:

    Thank you everyone who contacted us to reserve a pair of Day Trippers. We have reached our quota and the Reserve Orders are now Closed.

    I should be receiving the Unionmade Balmorals early next week. I will give an account of how they fit me then. I think they are pretty cool and unique. This green is perfect for this time of year.

    I know when I was there in September he was helping me, and one other, while there were two other gents in the store browsing.
    His phone rang about a dozen times while he was helping me and the other customer.

    He works on his own and has no help, well at least the two times I was in there.
    When I have emailed him he responded, the latest being a week.

    Have you been on his blog and left a comment on the thread of the particular shoe you are looking for? I did and he responded the next day I believe.

    Post some pics if you can. I'm trying to wrap my head around what the loden color would look good with.

    I like green shoes. But I've seen that Loden color in person and I really don't like it.

    I did get him on the phone, but it was very obvious that he forgot to or just did not call Alden to verify that they could do that last in my size. I just expected more for someone looking to make a 700 dollar purchase.
