Ok, break it to me gently. If I wanted to try and get on a list for either of the following:

Cigar or Ravello LWB
Cigar or Ravello Tanker or Indy boot

I guess I want to know how much of a pipe dream these are in 2015 and if they are not, best places to inquire about getting on a list...

Thank you gentlemen for your kind comments.

 

I am already enjoying them and haven't even worn them yet.

 

Special Thanks to the SF Alden thread for helping this to happen.  :fonz:

Jealous of all the NST talk.  Black shell boots will have to suffice.

 

Terrific boots my friend, do not be jealous, good things come to those who wait!

Gentlemen,
Late last year I applied some saphir renovateur on cordovan shoes and stored them away. A few days ago I opened up some alden boxes and noticed a waxy deposit especially around the stitching area on several pairs. Has anyone observed this before? What would be the best way to clean them up again?

Thanks in advance.

My mistake.  Checked my old LWB.  New whisky definitely lighter than old ravello.

 

 

Wow, nice LWBs! Those old Ravellos are in amazing shape! :-)

email adam at alden of carmel for cigar and ravello lwb, he gets them every couple of years, and he'll send you a pair with no defects. cigar indys and ravello nst boots are more challenging, call the shoe mart and offer them your first born. cigar tankers are a complete pipe dream. my sweet sweet olive brown pipe dream...

Thanks everyone. Can anyone tell me what the model number is here? I googled Alden model numbers but couldn't find any resources on interpreting what it is:

 

I think its the second line - 13290 in this case.

Kudos, Gentlemen, you all make this a great thread.

I agree the model#13290 is correct. To help identify this model please post photos.

Fellas,

Does Alden make any brogue balmoral boots? I'm looking for a medallion toe dress boot that can be worn with suits.

 

I really like the 44623H & 44626H but was told that they weren't formal enough and limited me to the fall/winter months for some reason?

I'm actually going to be right near Alden San Diego when mine would be delivered... so they'll likely make it to you before I can unbox mine (and they'll sit outside my door for 1-2 days!)
