Less than one month ago I purchased this shoe from The Shoe Mart. (Mine are factory seconds.)If so...can you give a quick review and maybe a pic or two? Seriously considering ordering this one.
Years ago I purchased an unlined pair of Alden's LHS in Whiskey hued shell cordovan and did not find it necessary to size down. In fact a half size smaller would have proven to be uncomfortably tight. I do hope your sizing strategy works out for you and that you may long wear those CxL beauties and may you do so only in good health!Thanks for the great info! I do have a pair of 986's so I'm familiar with that last. I went ahead and pulled the trigger! I did size down 1/2 due to them being unlined. Sockless is the plan. Anxious to get them!
