1. Bonafe >>>> Alden in every aspect (finishing, handwelted, etc) for relatively the same price.

 

2. The model I showed is no longer being produced. 

 

3. Alden does not do one off MTOs.

Completely agree.  I'm just staring at that shot of the black derby, unblinking.

I think they are both - rugged in design and refined in execution.  I am loving them more every time I look.  If I could remotely justify another brown casual boot I would jump on 'em, because I think they would fit my wide-ish feet very, very well.

@Leaves - stupid question - are these burgundy or brown?  I swear they looked one way on my office computer and another way at home.

Roger,

These are brown but with the twist. Etrusco color is difficult to describe, it is a brown base but it has some reddish undertones. It resembles burnt sienna.
I have some pictures here under natural light

I'm going to change the laces on my etrusco wholecuts to a dark brown. I'm not crazy about the light laces they came with.
