Those are awesome! Didn't know mahogany was a color ever used by Alden.
Yeah, they used Mahogany shell for a while, until 2004 or so. I am not sure of the exact timing, but it seems that it was mostly replaced by Ravello. This particular pair is from 1996.
Alden made a few models in Mahogany shell. Adam did a few makeups with it (AF1 Whiskey/Mahogany saddle moc stitch blucher, AF2 wingtip bal), and I've seen a few others floating around (LHS, Straight-Tip Blucher, LWB).
I believe those very shoes are on sale.
Yes, when can the plebs have a share of the riches? I demand an answer from the Mayor!
Solid find there my friend. I was hoping to see this closer to my year end bonus but I knew I could count on this thread to hunt down a pair :)
