Interesting. I would definitely prefer the double soles. I'm headed down to DC next weekend for a short trip with the wife. What she doesn't know is that I'm planning an excursion to see Kathy and that seeing the DC store for the first time is my number one priority on the trip.

Hopefully they have they have a few Snuff suede models and I can look at in person. I've seen decent color variation in pictures of snuff suede online so I think it may make sense to buy in person. Or is it possible that the variation is just due to the lighting?

Also - regarding AoM above. Anthony is a great guy. He's young and not as knowledgable as others, but he's probably my favorite Alden salesman. Good dude. I like giving him my money.

Figured that I should start on a pair of seconds... Just went to my local cobbler. Did a good job in my book...

Gotta love the Horween Stamps...

 

I thought that the stamp placement here was kind of funny.

No, Snuff definitely varies in real life... Kathy has a number of Snuff make ups in stock. Chukka, LHS, PTBs, and Semi-Brogue Balmoral all come to mind... Have a good trip!

P.S. Anthony and Curtis are both great! :-)

Those are gorgeous! These are an AoM makeup, correct?
post #107663 of 122416
I purchased my first few exotics from Anthony at AoM. Laid back guy and relaxed experience. Usually emails back really fast as well.

Anthony is a good dude. Ralph on the other hand...

After a fine resoling job by Pioneer Renewer SF, the look offers more flexibility and I've worn them more. Plus the added comfort of the TB last on a 6 eyelet platform.



This thread moves so fast....but these look incredible resoled!!

Thank you, they are from Kathy @ AoDC a few years back. Close heel, double water lock sole and my favorite heel that Alden makes, don't actually know the name of it. Rubber on the bottom with an extension on the insole side. I'll have to post pics of the heel later to ask what exactly it's name is.
