if you notice it says the product is out of stock and it's been that way basically forever.
agreed on the commando for NE. just ordered the dark brown CXL (not CXE ) ultimate indy for LS myself.if you really wanted, you could get the eyelets replaced for brass by B. Nelson. it's expensive and not worth it but people have done stranger things for aesthetic reasons.resoling a commando sole isn't really a viable option. Alden will now only resole shoes with the original sole they had. further, alden's commando sole is proprietary and stitched on where most others...
i spoke to steven last month and he said there would definitely be another run, pre-order, when that will be exactly isn't yet determined but sometime in the near (by Alden terms) future. so definitely in the next year or so most likely.

this.zhp was my second car in when i was living in LA. first was a E34 525i. then traded the zhp for an M coupe. now i'm primarily in NY but spend about 30-40% of my time in LA so i keep a honda fit there. moving on.

agree with the above. go neutral. i've even stopped using the burgundy cordovan cream because i don't like how uniformly it changes the color of color #8. on my ravello i've only ever used neutral, and started recently using it on my #8 as well. i just got a pair of cigar LHS and i plan to only use neutral on that as well. part of the beauty of shells is how each one has a different hue. neutral won't affect this. creams with pigment will.
damn rob you need to get some toe taps. toes lookin' like bows.
this is not true in my case.plus, that's generally a super weak argument.that would be like if my intern turned in shitty work and said "oh well it's still better than what the intern gave you." okay, sure, but it's still shitty work and not up to standard.in any case, i agree that 95% of people won't know the difference. but then again there is the random person who you would never expect to know. tonight i stopped into trader joes to buy some bananas and cheese. the guy...
