That's the 974.  It's available at most Alden retailers.  Alden DC, Alden SF, Alden of Madison, TheShoeMart, etc.

Ravello, it's a helluva drug.

Whiskey Wednesday. Maiden voyage for these brand new LWBs from TSM. Fantastic shade. Love the 2016 whiskey run. Definitely less orange than the 2014/2015 runs.

JSO, I really like your collection. Good mix of rare styles.

I've owned most models across the years, but I've never had a whiskey LWB. Maybe that will change one day.

I'm wearing Marlows today, so no Whiskey Wednesday for me

Thanks! Yeah, I have gotten lucky to get a bunch of rare makeups while also trying to keep a few classics in the rotation. The LWB is probably the easiest whiskey makeup to get, so that works in your favor on that one!

I am jealous of all you whiskey owners.

Generally I don't like whiskey because it comes out more orangish than this, but this is the perfect shade..

Those are perfect. Hopefully this means that the Whiskey PTBs I am waiting on are coming soon.

Thanks, gents! They're breaking in nicely, although the double leather sole makes it a much harder break-in than other pairs. Soon enough they will be like butter. They're also resistant to spotting - already got a droplet of water from the sink on them, and they absorbed it without a mark or welt. Very nice shell on these. A solid run!

What do you do when your wife discovers how much bnib whiskey lwbs can sell for? Any suggestions besides hiding them and bringing them out to wear in 5 years? 🤔 I really messed this one up...lol

Wear them and say their value dropped 60%... "works like MINT baseball cards or coins... so odd"
