2450 is hand stitched as well. Same shoe as 2210 but on Barrie instead of Aberdeen.

From the perspective of a long-time lurker who's recently took the plunge to post - it feels a bit pointless to post the run-of-the-mill Alden make-ups us not in the rare shell underworld can get our hands on.  I can post a somewhat grainy picture of Color 8 Naval Boots, but it'd just be after someone else's post of their two-toned whiskey/unicorn blood tanned cordovan tankers. 

 

I think this place is very friendly and inclusive, but you've all seen enough natural CXL LWBs I'm sure.

Would actually love to see a well-worn natty CXL LWB and see how it ages.

:) Fair point.  Mine still need some age on them though.  It's hard to get in enough wears when I keep adding to my rotation!

First time out for these.  Love the Plaza last, wish it was more common.

Hello Alden fanatics,

I've been looking to replace my natural cxl longwings (show em off, @ScarsdaleVibe!), which are 1/2 size short. Moulded just sent me some natural cxl shortwings on the modified last (which fits my feet well). I'm just not sure about the white stitching. What do you think?

These are their smaller cousins with some wear.  I dont own alot of cxl but I like these alot

Happen to be wearing mine as I catch up on the forum today. Alden x J Crew on crepe worn ~ 2x a week for 4 years. Nearing time for a recraft:

Polishing up my Ravello. I tried to capture the variation in shell color, although it wasn't that successful.
(If anyone has other models in 8.5 Barrie I can add to my collection, please let me know:D)

Wait, wait, wait a minute. Those 9 boxes look like they are sitting on a pull out drawer. There are 9 drawers. Do each of those drawers contain 9 little green boxes? Plus the 6 in the floor of the closet on the far right. Do you really have nearly 90 pairs of Alden shoes? If so, I want to be you when I grow up.

These are outstanding. Are you on the original sole?
