Tell me more about Alden's new business model
Ha!
Very nice I am hoping I can find that in a smooth chamois minus the pull tabs (they always cause issues with cuffed denim)
Just heard that J Gilbert in Seattle closed today after 45 years...
One size too big for me!
Anyone have problems with commando soles peeling away from the leather outsole particularly around the edges?
Looks pretty normal for #8 to me ... you would be hard pressed to find a pair with much less imperfections given that this dye is used deliberately to hide imperfections in the shell If it makes you feel any better I have a ravello pair with more visible streaking than this but it didn't bother me as this is just the nature of the beast (no pun intended)
How easy is it to remove the pull tabs on those punch cap reverse shammys?
I think common because it is actually just an oiled nubuck (whether smooth or reverse). So the imperfections on the hide can be easily hidden.
Grant is a toughie for me because my feet swell throughout the day. I went a 1/2 size up on my day trippers and even with thin socks I can feel some pinching on my small toes at the end of a work day ... if I had to go again I'd stick with TTS on the Grant
