Anatomica Paris.
Good collection of black and color 8 shell boots and shoes.
Really worth visiting when in Paris and meeting Pierre and Charles.
The two of them are very convincing about the modified last.

You can email general@aldenshoe.com if you want the "official" info. But it's Brown CXL. Alden does not use Burgundy CXL.

These are the one pair of Alden's I thought I would like the least...and end up wearing the most (with denim). They are perfect for casual streetwear and look better the more you rough them up.

What a great example of what CXL can become!

 

(BTW - I assume you've noticed the stitching on the left boot)

Thanks so much gentlemen! (Did I ever mention I love the optimistic and supportive tone of this thread? It's my measuring stick of Internet civility.)

Argh! In truth I did not notice that until you brought it to my attention. frown.gif Sigh, oh well...all apart of the charm at this point I suppose.

I'm sorry to be the guy pointing it out - only did it to make sure you knew and it didn't get worse.  Those are some seriously beautiful boots no matter what!

No, don't be! Thank you for pointing it out so I can swiftly take corrective action.

I'd like to reach out to Alden directly with pictures but I'm unable to find their email. I'll be giving them a ring tomorrow - in the past they've provided me with excellent customer service and I hope they're able to help out again.

I wouldn't mind seeing the whole outfit.

 

And yeah, every one needs some snuff.

 

Freaking awesome LHS'S mate.

 

Knocking it out of the park as always.

Just wanted to give some good feedback for a new Alden retailer, GoldenBrogue.

I’ve known Mack for a while now, meeting him when he did some great brass eyelet conversions for me last year.

Happy to see him in his new shop, which is building a nice selection of Aldens.

I picked up these new captoe plaza boots in burnished tan calf from Mack. Mack was a pleasure to transact with and I highly recommend giving him a look.

I was considering Epaulets Nat. CXL "Alt Wein" bluchers on commando but these are really nice boots.

 

Off the top of anyone's head, are these being sold anywhere?

 

Thanks.

Those look like Leffots cooney boots. I haven't seen them for sale since last spring.
