I still don't get the lacing...over my head I guess

post #100172 of 122416
Just threads the lace over the top of the eyelet instead of underneath it, if I'm not mistaken.

You don't get how it works or why it matters?
If it's the latter, it's simply a personal preference. I believe by filling the gap between the initial lace bar (closest to the toe) you provide the boot with a more complete look. I think it elongates the vamp, visually. Looks sleeker.
Here's and example of the lacing most of us are used to
Here's one with the suggested lacing

Pictures are not mine, sorry to whoever I stole them from. Also, I'm not trying to say your boots look like poop. They don't, just sharing an opinion. All Aldens are beautiful! Well... Maybe not all.

As far as technique, you are just threading the lace through the top of the eyelet instead of from the inside! So you will always be threading "into" the shoe.

What typical welt and edge colors are used for cigar LWB typicaly? Also what color would antique fall under? Seen some in Google images that look pretty light.

Got some AF53 last night, very clunky and tank-like mostly due to the TB last and size. These will work great for daily "shit-kicker" boots!

ATL, those are terrific. The full-strap is nice as it can be worn with a suit or more casually. Enjoy them today!
DV, those are looking funky and fun. Enjoy your LWBs in the best of health today!
Enjoy those front heavy monsters in the best of health.

thanks for the kind words gentlemen.

I recently picked up this pair of Alden #8 shell with brass eyelets, a Frans Boone make-up.... I like the brass contrast with the color 8 shell....









with my #8 naval boot...... I think a different enough contrast? nod[1].gif

 

i love the brass eyelets, inspirational.

Alden occasionally offers small runs of whiskey/Ravello/cigar shell belts. Ask Alden SF/DC.
Otherwise, look at Carmina Saddle shell belts.
Brooks Brothers has shell belts in black and #8 regularly, and occasionally "tan" shell belts.

I would be interested... let me know =).

It's been a while since I posted or bought a pair of Alden's, but these arrived today. The smell of opening a fresh pair made me feel like I was a druggie about to get his fix on.
