Inspired to take a quick photo of AF12 (Whiskey). This was the 12th make-up shoe of the Alden Fan make-up series begun at Alden of Carmel in 1996.  This particular shoe was made in early 2001, and has been worn only once, at my wedding, La Jolla, CA, summer 2003.

Adam,

 

That reminds me to inquire about the other grails you have sitting around collecting dust at the AOC estate.  :nodding:

post #7598 of 10667

If we're posting inventories/collections:

 

- Reverse Tobacco Chamois SWB

- Navy CXL LWB (red brick sole)

- Natty CXL LWB

- #8 SWB w/ antique edging

- #8 Naval Boot w/ antique edging

- Snuff suede PTB

 

I'm pre-ordered for Leffot's #8 LWB w/ antique edging as well.

 

These have only been in the last two years.  Chances are my future purchases will be limited to grails (if/when they ever come up):

 

- Ravello NST/PCT 

- Whiskey SWB

- Cigar Indy

- Hunting Green Reverse Chamois boot

 

Anyone willing to part with these in a 12TTS let me know!

A pair of whiskey George boots from 1998 (AF3), a pair of color 2 longwings (AOC 20 year anniversary shoe), and bunch of ladies Aldens owned by Mrs. Alden of Carmel. :-)

Adam, your Whiskey LHSes are looking magnificent still. Pretty cool that you have cherished the memory of your wedding day so much as to keep them still in that state.

Mike,

 

Thanks my friend.  

 

They are actually Whiskey Shell Cordovan.  

 

A Ravello pair are very high up my list for sure.

 

These are on the darker side of the whiskey spectrum.

 

Have a great week my friend.
