Those are on Grant and are a special makeup for Alden of Madison Ave in NY.

Maybe I'm much too picky and observant, but has anyone else noticed that the machine stitched Indys have change over the past 1-2 years - the length of the white contrast stitch (each individual stitch) has gotten much smaller, making the stitch look tighter.

If you take a look at a new pair of 405/403 vs. a pair from 3-4 years ago, the difference is quite evident.

Nerd time has now ended. Thank you.

looks like it could be wax or paste build up. i no longer use reno products because they dry my shell too much. i would wipe with a wet rag and brush. i have not been able to completely eliminate those marks in the past, but you can make it a lot better.

Hey guys,

Hoping to pick up a pair of Aberdeen suede tassels. 8.5 Barrie fits well. Will a 9 work?

Thanks

From everything I hear, the answer would be "Yes." But others on the forum have far more experience and should weigh in.

Typically yes but I found Aberdeen to be tricky for my foot. I am an 8.5D Barrie but couldn't fit a 9D Aberdeen. It narrowed too quickly at the toe for me. As always, if you're in a position to try them on then that's your best bet. Good luck!

Looking great as always Don! Your slacks are pretty rad, but the socks are a little disappointing for you! ;-) Enjoy Whiskey Wednesday!

I personally avoid product except for occasional use. I think a good brushing with a little moisture is all it takes (and patience). If you do this between several wearings, I think it will be mainly gone.

Thanks, as @JSO1said, they are on the Grant Last. Madison does these sparingly in Cigar, but does stock them regularly in Black Shell and Color 8. I believe that they also do this same makeup minus the toe stitch in a semi-Indy style.

That is correct-a-mundo! Although, I will add that it historically has been done by a number of shops, but that is going back to the Golden Days.

With zero other information, I would say that 9 would be my starting place for logical sizing.

Your new 2210's are looking absolutely stunning. I hope that you get many years of good use out of them!

Agreed. 

 

They look like white socks, but I presume they're more closer to cream. 

post #5865 of 10534

^Thanks guys! My sock game is non-existant; they're basic tan/creme socks from Uniqlo...I'll need to do better now that I'm no longer wearing boots exclusively!
