Mike, can you please include this indy in next round of Alden pre-order?!

 

@sungmineyo absolutely. We've still got decent stock in the Edmund Indy, so tomorrow's preorder will be a Tanker boot variant of this. Same thing, but just with the Y-stitch at the toe.

When are the PTB's going live?, Also are they Mocha or Saddle , can't tell from the pics?

Thanks.

 

@epc2 they're technically saddle, but it's a bit of a darker shade than what we're used. Like Chromexcel, Couro Cromo colors will vary a bit from batch to batch, especially the lighter ones. This shade is really perfect though. I'll have these online by tonight and in tomorrow's NL.

On that note, a huge thanks to you for working with me to adjust the fit. Taking out the pleats, adding darts, and slimming the sleeves took the fit to a whole other level. Combined with the sleeve and body length alterations this is now as good to me as a MTM shirt. I'll definitely be on the lookout for more Individualized offerings. Really looking forward to that strawberry cream flannel, which I'm convinced is going to be the winner of that last EFF round.

 

@kwanon My pleasure! We've got an Individualized promo going down for the next week as well - I'll post up some new fabrics and the details later. It's all around the SF Trunk show in Saturday.

For PTBs, I would be interested in seeing a mid grey or charcoal grey suede.

 

@bry2000 the restock is actually booked online already. We got a new color as well. Auburn is a burgundy-brown which is freaking beautiful in person.

Mike, what else is on the preorder? I know you mentioned that there were going to be tanker variants of some kind. What sort of leathers/last?

 good to hear from another Alt Wien aficionado! When we're talking about a makeup in this line & price, the sole units are always going to be different. My guys can't work with Dainite, and leather is a little bit problematic. 

Blake stitching uses one large stitch to fix the upper to the sole. There's a channel at the bottom of the sole that holds the stitch. Once the channel wears through, the stitch hits the pavement and the shoe comes apart. Any leather soled shoes from blake manufacturers like Quoddy, Rancourt, and a ton of Italian brands will have this issue. We came across it when we made our own handsewns in Maine. This is the nature of blake stitching, and it is an issue for longevity. 

When we started work on the PTB & Combat boot, I was a real pain in the ass. I insisted up and down to the factory that we needed a sole that was low profile and potentially biz-caz, but also long wearing. We ended up with the leather-rubber combo used on the PTB. The sole is stacked leather - and can be nicely edge-trimmed, and the bottom has rubber grip panels from St. Moritz. The rubber gives you nice traction and provides a lot of durability for the sole - way more than an all-leather unit could ever have. And truthfully, this is the only sole that I really have to use - at least right now. It's not a pure traditional dress shoe, but I think that the price and the comfort puts it into another realm. I love the idea of knocking out a Longwing or Alt Wien pattern and delivering a rad suede European-made shoe for $255. 

A biz-caz suede alt-wein sounds like a winner to me.

Mike I feel like we talked about doing a GMTO of this back in the Carmina days. I'd almost certainly be down for this either in white suede or polo/noix/light tan suede.

 

Can the suede PTBs be made unlined?

 

Also FWIW I prefer the Alden Alt Wein medallion versus the Vass (I'm not sure I'd actually buy one with the suede PTBs on the way)... What I'm really a fan of is Alden's Plaza last medallion, which is done in a more pronounced ram's head shape. I dislike the fit of the Plaza last itself, but the medallion is hot fire.

FWIW, I'd like to keep the suede generally more "work appropriate" - closer to biz than caz. Snuff, chocolate, rust, etc.

Of course I could just go all in for that remaining pair in my size of Alden AltWeins sitting on the EP shoe page on my browser... sarcasm.gif
