Hand sewn stitching is more worth your money cause one of the sewers poked themselves with the needle, it makes your shoe extra special. Worth the labour and money...
I'm not too sure if this has been answered but how long those Alden Rochester Red Cedar shoe trees last? I have a few and the red cedar was pretty strong 6 months ago and I can't really smell the cedar anymore. They I barely take them out of the shoe maybe just a couple of times in the last 6 months so just wondering how ofter you're suppose replace your shoe trees or not.
PM me if interested.
I'm selling Bernhard Willhelm white suede sneaker.

I sort of agree and don't mean to start an argument/debate but how is it that if you compare a raw denim next to a pre-wash denim (both brand new) the pre-wash denim is softer and lighter in shade? Again, not trying to start an argument here. Just always wanting to learn from a Denim Master.

Theres seperation thats big enough to fit a business card through on both the left and right shoe. Man, looks like Alden's quality control is going downhill on the Indy's. Seeing too many complaints about soles separating. Probably cause it's the most mass produced item from Alden.
testing again and failing.
