can anybody comment on the Grenadine Grossa in Burgundy. It looks closer to dark brown versus the Promoteo, which is what I think a true Burgundy should look like. Not sure if this is just on my monitor...
just to chime in...last year, while needing a re-sole for an old pair, I stopped by a local stockist. The shop owner actually called Alden since my pair has been resoled once by a local cobbler. Alden declined.
your frustrations are understandable, but this is part of the process going MTM over the internet. IMO, it is a question of your risk tolerance. Even bespoke customers sometimes has similar results. Good Luck.
