Apolgies in advance if this question has already been answered. I'm looking for an Alden Chukka boot for everyday use, so I was originally looking for some kind of rubber sole. I found the dark brown chukka at Alden of Carmel with a commando sole, which looks a bit clunky. Next best thing seems to be the Cognac Chukka with the Flex Welt sole at Leather Soul. Can anyone who wears the flex welt sole tell me how comfortable they find it to be? I have a pair of double...
I just got back my first altered garment from Cardelino and was really happy with it.
I have what I think is the identical coat, but with different buttons, not sure why that is. It is incredibly soft and comfortable.
Just received a pair of these Brown Calfskin Chukka boots from TSM: http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-men..._calfskin.html They are brown calfskin Chukkas with what they call "lightweight microcellular outsoles and heels." I really love these boots, but unfortunately the size I received is wrong and they don't have any left in my size. I know these are custom made for TSM, but has anyone seen something similar elsewhere: brown calfskin Chukka with microcellular sole? ...
Thanks for the heads up on Benedetti's--just grabbed a pair of Alden Shell Cordovan #8 PTB's for $295. Not sure if this is a regular sale, but I also went by RM Williams and got a pair of Wentworth Yearling in Chestnut for $300 down from $380. Know these can be had for cheaper on the net, but I thought it was an okay price for their official store.
Look great, PM sent about 25.
I recently had a suit made from a Vitale Barberis Canonico fabric described as "Wool and Summer Kid Mohair". They're extremely light, feel super comfortable, and work very well in warm weather. I love the pants so much that I'm contemplating having some more pants made in different colors or perhaps finding a RTW pair of pants made from a similar type of material. A couple of questions: -Is there any reason not to use this material for stand-alone pants--is it...
Thanks for the info, guys. Going to grab them tomorrow if they're still there.
Contemplating a first purchase of some Aldens. Don't have $600 to get what I want but just tried on a pair of the Shell Cordovan Plain Toe Bluchers Model 990, Barrie last, that fit well and were on sale for half price. This is the shoe: http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-men..._cordovan.html Is there anyone who has these shoes and can offer thoughts on what you commonly wear them with, whether you love them, etc.? Could they be worn with a suit or are they too...
Thanks for the info.
