I wrote a longish detailed response and lost it somehow after clicking submit post so I'll keep this short. The circle on the inside reads, "Genuine Cordovan made exclusively for ____ shoes new york - ____"
I dont know what the blanks are but the first one almost looks like, "Church's" in a very stylized font. It's a real stretch of the imagination though...
I'll call Alden on Monday.
Thanks for your insight, Eqcitizen.
Yea, newer posters have to wait for their comments to be approved. Its annoying.
Just so you know, your shoes are oxfords, not bluchers (or derbys).
So did you call them to ask, i am curious as to what they say?
