Eh...not really. The last time I did anything to these I deer boned them. Maybe a couple of months ago. I honestly haven't touched them since besides wiping them off with my lambswool mitt after wearing.

Hello everyone. I am semi new here and new to Aldens all together. I recently ordered my first pair, I went with the 405 Indys from J.Crew.  They will be here on Thursday, I cannot wait!  My current boot of choice are my Red Wing Chukkas, so I am very interested to see how they compare.  I have a question though, I am also into raw denim.  I currently have a few pairs in rotation that are fairly new and the do leave indigo stains on my Red Wings and on my other sneakers.  Is there anything I can do that you guys can recommend to limit this on my incoming Indys?  Thanks in advance!

 

Paul

Hi gents,

sorry to ask again. I received a tentative answer and just wanted something more concrete:

 

Can anyone else chime in on whether or not the Alden Cap on the "Straight Tip/Perforated Straight Tip/Medallion Oxford"(anything on the Hampton last) is longer than those of the AE #5 last shoes? Thanks for your time.

I am a whiskey LWB away from the shell rainbow in gunboats.  I have a whiskey shortwing bal, so I've passed up the longwing a couple of times.  Everytime I see them posted here by DV and others, I tell myself I need to make it a priority to acquire.

 

Looking great as usual MrDV!

They really are a great all-weather/purpose shoe that can be dressed up (to an extent) very nicely.

Hey Paul, congrats on the Indys! Your boots are chromexcel leather which is pretty waxy. This will be pretty resilient to the bleeding indigo. The oro-iginal leather is significantly lighter and less waxy. I've seen in extreme cases, people apply tape the the inside of their cuff to prevent the transfer of indigo to lighter shoes. Good luck!

Great all around combo MrDV!

@MrDV Your shoes/boots, pants, and photo skills are always a killer combination. Every time I see one of your photos I add a new model to my wish list.
