For your consideration:    Alden Color 8 Shell Cordovan Longwing Bluchers on the Barrie Last, double waterlock sole with Antique welt and edge by Leffot, size 8E.    Shoes are brand new, not even broken in on carpet; there is not a blemish to be found on these. I don't have the boxes as Alden boxes are too small to use for shoe storage so I toss them. They were purchased about two months ago and have sat in my closet. As much as I wanted these, I always find myself...
 I'm surprised by this. For the record, I certainly prefer Alden shell to AE, but that is based on Alden's finishing on the leather (the Alden "glaze.") I've found, however, that AE's QC is much higher than Alden's. Pop over in the Alden thread and it's littered with examples of people buying shoes with defects as "firsts." Most people will pay full price and keep them because even models in #8 are becoming increasingly hard to find. Even more leeway is given for rare...

That sounds great! I was traveling around the continent so had to go really light. I thought a PTB gave me the most versatility, so it was between the tobacco chamois or the natty cxl. In the end the chamois won out because I thought it would hold up a little better esp with potential bad weather. They served well
Morning gents, just got back from a three week trip to Asia. Had to travel very light and allowed myself only one pair of shoes. I opted for these Alden Tobacco Chamois, and they held up beautifully! Worn almost everyday, all day! (Please excuse the ratty denim):
Welcome Sledge, great collection! I feel as though Neumora's are under appreciated on here. I have a pair and love them Time to take that next step and throw some shell cordovan into the mix 
 Looks like antique trim to me as well. Unfortunately, as you mentioned, you'd have to call around to see if anyone has that specific make up.If you're able to find the style number you can call Alden and ask for the names of vendors who've made that style. To make it a little more difficult, however, I think the same Antiqued Color 8 PTB would have a different style number if built on a double water lock sole as opposed to regular double leather, etc. Leffot recently made...
