I have a pair of Black shell longwings (florsheim) that I've been wearing a bunch lately. Digging the black, but really wouldn't be dropping $700 on a pair of black shell shoes. Boots on the other hand.....

I have a few items higher priority on the list but let me know.

Does anyone know if subsequent runs of this makeup will feature brass hardware? Thought I read somewhere that Alden is no longer doing brass on black shell, but I could be mistaken. Such a great build as-is.

From FransBoone, the only clear explanation I have seen. Alden gets the eggplant dye on them and the cleaning product they now use is an issue with the leather.

 

 

http://www.fransboonestore.com/collections/alden/products/re-stock-of-alden-cordovan-8-parajumper-boots-1

 

"This is the last shipment with brass eyes in this style, after this Alden will not put brass eyes in cordovan anymore. A simple reason; The product to clean the eyes after polishing the cordovan changed due to environment reasons. And it will react on the cordovan. (it was not used on these or other of our other brass eyes cordovan leather or suede shoes until now )"

it's not only the brass hardware, Alden is limiting black shell with antique edges. I had asked Yenni about a pitt boot remake, but she was given the no-go by Alden. Leffot and Epaulet are the only 2 places that seem to have gotten the green light.

Saw Hail, Caesar! last night.  One of the kidnappers is wearing 975's, and they get some serious screen time.

True, it's been all over the news lately. Thing is, I heard we can order brass with shell again AFTER the next election.

We technically only know that:
-Color 8 and brass
-Color 8 with Suede
-Black Shell and Antique
have been precluded by Alden's policy update after their July 2015 break.

I suspect that Black and Brass is now a no go, but technically haven't heard that.

The RydenBoot will be the last makeup to go through with Black and Antique unless Alden changes their policy.
