Those Cigar Indys are great. Anyone know when the current run is expected to come in? I know it's supposed to be around now...

Just wanted to ask, when i do recraft them down the road, they are going to remove that part either way and do it over again right? haven't recrafted any shoes yet, so i don't know this answer.

Overall, I'm glad to see the welcoming and convivial atmosphere I enjoyed so much still at play. Hope you all are wearing your Aldens in good health!

Btw, black shell is underrated. My newest acquisition: Context Tanker boots in black

In practical terms... I should get the Chamois because I could use dark boots more than light. Though I can't find much info about smooth Chamois because almost everything Alden has done with this leather uses the neppy reversed side. I think Natural CXL is rustic and beautiful, athough I have a lot of Natural CXL already. No matter what, they are both unique.
All that aside... which looks cooler to you guys?? I wish I could buy both.

I was never really a fan of the tan suede but it's hard to beat the price!

He sold them to somebody a few years ago who wore them for about a week and then decided they were too small. The store took them back and ordered him another pair but couldn't sell these ones so they set them aside until the owner came across them while clearing out some other stock.

Starting the week off with cigar LWBs. Yes, Virginia, I added flushed toe taps to these:

Many great looking Alden's here this week guys! Those Natty CXL PTBs were unlike I have ever seen before, those streaks were horrible. Watchman, what color more accurately reflects those Ravello LHSes, the lighting makes them look like two completely different shoes. The welt is very normal for Alden as is the dye on the back of the eye stays.

Mike,

 

They were sold to me as Whiskey, but alas, they are Ravello indeed.  The older Ravello that is orangish. 

 

Would you like to see the numbers on the inside?

 

Thanks.
