    I don't think they do - I had a pair of 405s I sent in for resoling about three months ago that didn't have the stitching replaced.


    Well that's a bummer. Maybe you have to make a special request.

    From mcarthur:

    "wear the shoes a minimal of three different times on carpeting to ascertain if the fit is proper for you"

    The vamp on the shoe on the left of the photo looks like shit assuming it's new (which it looks).

    Does anybody know where I might be able to find a shell cordovan longwing in any colour except black with the double oiled flex welt sole?

    Edit: I think the closest might be the LS x SF shortwing in colour 8.

    Hi guys,

    I am interested in purchasing a pair of Alden Indy boots and am a little bit confused about the size and width. I may have to try on both sizes, but I just wanted to get your expert opinion. I will likely be a 9 or 9.5 based on the following shoes sizes:

    Adidas/Nike sneakers: 10
    Mark McNairy Saddle Shoe: 9.5 (width is perfect, length feels a tad too long)
    J Crew dress shoes: 9.5
    Chucks: 9 (width is pretty snug)
    Clarks DB: 9.5 (width is perfect, length feels a tad too long)
    Common Projects and Lanvins: US 9 or 42

    I have been told I will likely require a width higher than D. I have only ever worn D width shoes...might be the reason why some don't fit as well.
