Do you guys know what the cigar shade is like? I may stick to Edward Green for captoes, but this makeup could be appealing as well.

Mine have some very minor imperfections but definitely nothing warranting a return.

Pano, please post those whiskey wingtip boots if you're getting them!

How many/What are the different grades/levels?


I think that Alden makes two levels - Cape Cod and Alden New England.  Most here post the "Goodyear welt" Alden New England and these are generally made to the theoretical same level. 

www.aldenshoe.com has some other info.

Thank you for the info. I'm actually referring across all shoe companies(dress shoes). I know C&J has "handgrade" and "benchgrade". AE is machinemade with handwork on the lower end - this I know. As the shoes get more expensive, I assume the finer things are what separates the shoes into different tiers. My question is simply: are there tiers for shoe quality as there are tiers for suits like in the Hierarchy thread? If so, waht is the nomenclature?
