    Well, I can only find them in Ds, so 6D?
    The Trubalance is the widest last that Alden produces, I would recommend the C width. Check out the link they carry 'em. http://www.NorthRiverOutfitter.com/p...ome_excel.html

    Thanks for the link. I think I will settle for the 6.5C then.

    I'm somewhere between 6.5c and 7c on the brannock scale. What would be the best size to pick for the Alden 403 Indy boots?

    That's my shoe size as well. Picked up the 403s in 6.5c. Had to have em stretched a bit by local cobble - in width -
    are great now. Would likely have stretched on their own, but I just wanted to expedite the situation.

    Just realized that I have 4 different animals represented in the boot collection

    405 Indy - Cow
    Tobacco Chamois Indy - Sheep
    Black Cordovan Chukka - Horse
    NST Ravello - Horse
    Officer Boot in Kidskin - Goat
    Black Indy - Cow

    Note: Although both the Tobacco Indy and Officer Boot are on the trubalance last, both feel like they run tts. The Officer boot is size 12 and fits great. The Tobacco is size 11.5D but fits snug. I usually take a 11.5 in trubalance

    Dude what do you wear your black chukkas with? I've been considering it. I want to wear casually and with suits occasionally

    You've got your PTBs and slip-ons covered. Go with the chukka.

    I reserve the chukkas for nasty weather. I have never worn them with a suit but I do wear them with a pair of dress slacks. They always look really nice and clean, not bulky. Actually, my nickname at work is "dapper" and I was first called that when I was wearing these boots. I just purchased the black shell ptb. I really like the look of smooth black shell. Looks damn sexy with just about anything

    The first SF'er I had a deal in place, but then he ended up giving them to his friend instead. That e-bay deal, I PM'ed him to see if I could buy it directly from him as I did't have an e-bay account. He said if it didn't sell there he'd sell it to me. I didn't think they would last so I decided to make an ebay account just for the Indys and they had already sold.

    Just my 2 cents and I don't mean to offend you, but why don't you just purchase a pair brand new? That way you know you're getting a great boot and you'll have them for many years of great wear.
