Agreed, very nice color.
This is probably a stupid question, but what exactly is country calf? I see it being used by other high end shoemakers and this is the first time I've seen it on an Alden. The texture seem to be similar to alpine grain.

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!
thank you friend. fyi, i played the same game for a couple of years, believing i didn't need the lwbs because i had the sw bals. i'm glad i finally got the boats.Quote:Originally Posted by HenryIII
Nothing plain or ole about those, fantastic!
Great all around combo MrDV!
thank you sir.Quote:Originally Posted by fitzcooper
@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.
so very kind of you to say.
