The Official Alden Thread for 2016 - Share reviews, sizing, advice, and photos. - Page 577post #8642 of 117939/21/16 at 7:17amPSA: I have two pairs of LHS's that I may be interested in parting ways with. One is a 9D Whiskey shell and the other is a 9.5D Ravello shell - both on the van last. I love the way they look but my collection has gotten so out of control that they barely see any wear these days. Original box and bags included, purchased from TSM.post #8643 of 117939/21/16 at 8:14ampost #8644 of 117939/21/16 at 8:26am
Happy hump day fellow SF'ers. While waiting for the arrival of my Alpine grain Barrie last long wings with commando sole, I console myself with the arrival of NOS Hanover long wings. Made in USA, these are some really nice quality shoes that I can recommend to those who venture into other vintage. I posted a company history and comparison with another long wing of that same era on the vintage thread. You can see it by clicking here if you have an interest in that sort of thing.post #8645 of 117939/21/16 at 9:37ampost #8646 of 117939/21/16 at 11:18ampost #8647 of 117939/21/16 at 12:17pmpost #8648 of 117939/21/16 at 12:20pmpost #8649 of 117939/21/16 at 1:02pmpost #8650 of 117939/21/16 at 1:13pmFirst time poster, not-so-long-time lurker in this thread. Have been an AE fan for a decade but recently was exposed to other options-including Alden. Here are my first pair, Snuff suede Dovers. I have three pairs in order from Leffot and can't wait to get more. Waiting on #8 PTB with crepe sole, Tobacco chamois LWB on commando and, the one I really can't wait for, #8 LWB with antique edge.
Also, just found out I like boots with purchase of an AE Higgins Mill, so looking I'm looking forward to adding a Black Shell Indy soon.
Thanks all for the great info in this thread.post #8651 of 117939/21/16 at 2:14pmpost #8652 of 117939/21/16 at 3:26pmpost #8653 of 117939/21/16 at 5:37pmpost #8654 of 117939/21/16 at 5:55pmFor those with experience using Alden's restoration--does the conditioning process include a re-dye of shell cordovan #8 to the extent that it will add pigment and can help even out mismatched coloring between shoes or splotches/streaks on one shoe?
If so, is the result much darker than the original?post #8655 of 117939/21/16 at 6:22pmQuote:Originally Posted by LittleViti

Base on my experience, Yes, they are gonna re-dye it and the shoes are gonna be darker, you may interest in the restoration review that I wrote up
