The lawn....not so much.
Thanks for your advice!
I received a special order from Alden in the 8.5D (a full size down from Brannock) and they seem to fit very nicely. I am happy to have my size for the Barrie last! However, I have noticed a couple of blemishes that I am curious about.
The first blemish I noticed is that the right shoe had some noticeable polish buildup on the right shoe right below the laces. I tried to use a t-shirt to buff it off, and it seems to come off, but leaves a lighter color underneath. This could probably be easily fixed with some polish, but nonetheless these are brand new.
The second blemish is the welt on the left shoe (right in picture) is sewn noticeably taller than the right.
Are these blemishes normal for first quality Aldens? Should I exchange these for another pair, or just keep them at this point? This is my first pair of Alden's, so I am not sure what to expect.
Thanks for any advice!
Thanks. I bought them through the Shoe Mart per everyone's recommendation, so they should take them back, even if I have to pay the $8.
