I use a light coat of AEs conditioner/cleaner and have had no issues with it changing the look of the shoe.

 

I did get a nasty scuff on the toe this week, though and am wondering what to use to cover it up. I don't have any bourbon polish and for some reason I cannot log onto AE's site to purchase some.

Decided to go one width up with them and it seems to have been the right decision. I just hope that I have enough of a lacing gap to avoid a overlap later on.

 

 

I like the color and the style.  Goes good with the blue and I imagine with grey or olive as well.  Well done.

Olive, huh? I never thought that would go. I am wearing olive pants today so when I go home I'll throw on my Cambridge. I  paired my olive pants with these Whiskey today for the first time. Warning! Alden content!

The world needs more whiskey/ cappuccino shell. Thank you sir.

Thanks for the input. How does cappuccino differ from dark brown shell? Anybody have a side by side comparison? I just bought the Patriot in dark brown shell (shipping from shoebank).  I'm now wondering which AE shell is closer to Alden Cigar, cappuccino or dark brown.In terms of edge trim, I'd like to replicate this shade. I'm thinking that light brown is pretty close. Natural was too light, IIRC.

 

 

 

 

 

Sadly, I just returned the above Alden PTB to TSM for refund.

Just found this cigar vs. AE brown shell for reference:

One would assume so.  But the toe doesn't look round to me.  Maybe it's the angle.  Anyway, very nice make-up.  Just wanted to know if Alden ever did a Plaza PTB.  I know they made/make Plaza plain toe cap.

Patrick, I never tire of looking at your pictures.

 

Sadly, it's akin to ogling a beautiful model you'll never have a chance to date.

Is that the Strand Webgem? That's a great looking color!

Related- anyone have a guess if I could get a Cambridge Shell MTO in the color that's available as a webgem later on? I really want a pair in the next few months, but I really ought to save up a little bit first. I just don't want to miss that great color!

I'm pretty sure the brown shell of the webgem is basically always available. When you get into colors like walnut and cappuccino is when you run into trouble.
