    You're in NYC, why don't you just go try them on at the Liquor Store?

    Another route is to use the red phone inside a local J. Crew and order both pairs. Return the pair you don't want and you will get 100% of your money back since shipping will be free anyway.

    I have no idea how AE sizes run, but if I were a betting man, I'd say you're a size 11.

    The boots look great now - yet another example of shell's resilience. But the laces I cannot abide...

    Laces give off the Tricker's vibe, which Aldens can't pull off because they're too traditional looking.

    Call Shoemart and ask to be put on the lists you want. You have to specify size and width.

    went to the shoemart today and was told that alden doesn't make a cigar longwing in an E width. I told him they do, and I own them (returning them because the edge trim is too dark), but he said I was wrong.

    found it entertaining

    Quick question; I recently purchased Shell Chukka's in size 10 about a month ago which I believe are Barrie last. Looking to pick up Alden 4060 Color 8 Cordovan Boot in the Aberdeen last:

    http://www.skyvalet1.com/Alden-4060-CH-Color-8-Cordovan-Boot_p_214.html

    What is the opinion on sizing between these two lasts?

    Was always shocked I was a 10 in Alden, as I just picked up a pair of AE Fifth Street last week, and was sized an 11. I always thought it was 1/2 size down.

    Thank you from a very grateful long time lurker.

    I'm sorry if this has been brought up before, but are the Alden Indy 405's available anywhere without the speed laces (the hooks on the top of the boot for laces). I have those on a Color 8 Alden boot and hate them. They take forever to lace and come undone sometimes which is why I'm looking for a pair of Indy's without them.

    Thanks in advance!
