They've done it before. Leffot has a black shell LWB with a flat welt. Not sure why they rejected this one.

They apparently feel a flat welt and closed heel take away the classic LWB appearance. True, but that is why it would totally rock.

Here, I lamented the death of a favorite pair of shoes.

I emailed Alden, who confirmed that they were discontinued.
Last week I stopped by the ShoeMart for a repair, and what did I find on the shelves of seconds?

Lo and behold.

hey good people of the Alden thread -

quick question. i would like to pick up a pair of the long wing brogues in either shell or cigar, barrie last, 10.5, pretty standard thing, and I am just not sure where to go to pick up a pair. any help appreciated. i searched, found shoe mart, but they don't have my size.

i am located in portland oregon and wouldn't mind picking them up from a shop, not sure if anyone here carries them.

at any rate, if you could point me in the right direction of finding a pair of the entry level aldens, i'd appreciate it!

What exactly do you mean by this? Cigar shell? insert color here or cigar shell?

If you want a longwing in a color of shell cordovan other than #8/burgundy or black, welcome to the club. It's not a pretty standard thing. They aren't entry level Aldens. If you need a pair yesterday, start looking on eBay or classifieds on here and get ready to pay above retail for something that's used or really above retail if they're unworn. If you want them new from a retailer, start making phone calls to Alden of San Francisco, Alden of Madison Avenue, Alden of D.C., The ShoeMart, and other Alden stockists, pray that one of them will put your name on a waiting list, and expect that you might (read as: not likely) get your pair three years from now.

If you want them in #8 shell, black shell, or any of the standard calf variations, call one of the aforementioned stores too. Winn Perry and John Helmer in Portland carries Alden, but you'd have to ask if they keep the particular longwing model that piques your interest in stock.

Still have to get use to the all eyelets but that shouldn't be a problem. Thank you to the member who brought up about it last year that Adam was making this to a Barrie last!

Boots look great, but my god you have a high instep / high volume foot.

Monday. Alden Cape Cod Collection Black Calfskin Horse Bit Loafer. Marcoliani Black Argyles OTC. Epaulet Charcoal Houndstooth Walt Trousers.

 

 

Sadly, Highland Shoe Company (the factory in Maine who makes the Cape Cod Collection) randomly closed their doors last month and so Alden will no longer be producing the Cape Cod Collection.

That's a very sad news..

yep, typo, meant #8 or cigar shell. didn't realize it was such a gigantic undertaking to find a pair of non-black or #8 LWBs, they used to be relatively easy to find (I previously found a pair of whiskey shell lwbs easily, way below retail, didn't know things have changed like this, as the last time i went looking for a pair of aldens the only thing holding me back was trying to find them under retail so i could afford). thanks for the replies!
