Interesting. I didn't know DC was doing a run. Has it been confirmed?

Buster - The shade from Carmel that I got last september was that colour and it is gorgeous after a few months of wear.

Enjoy them!

Love those boots! Any reason you don't use a protector spray? Just curious

DV-These are stunning and gives me hope that somewhere in the Alden world a pair in size 13 exists and might become available in the future.

I was lucky and recently bought these and a whiskey pair size 11D from the shoe mart. I just happened to see my size on their website & pulled the trigger.

 



So thats where those went. A member here got the 11D and returned them for being so dark. I was debating it but was going to wait on the DC pair.

Yup, saw these as well. I wear a 10.5D / 11C so they would not have fit unless I wore thick socks. Ended up passing and luckily got in on a pre-order a few weeks later. Dark Cigar will lighten up over time. I would not return a pair of cigar for being too dark. His loss, your gain.

The cigar I think is nearly as versatile as color 8, but the antique edge/welt making them a bit more casual. I will wear the cigar with chinos, charcoal and navy wool trousers also.

I agree with the underlined. To me that's what sets this shoe apart. For example, the same color shoe with a brown edge would look more formal and tougher to wear with denim or chinos.

Thanks for your help.

Maiden voyage for these cigar LWBs. They're pretty dark - I'm hoping the will lighten some with som sun exposure.

I have a pair from the same run and plan to bust them out next week. Yours look good and I expect they will lighten fairly quickly.

Great looking Wingtips. The edging seems lighter.

Thanks! I'm not against Nano and the like. I think I actually did apply a coat when the boots first arrived last year. I tend to wear suede on mostly clear days, so it's not much of an issue. Also, after a couple of years of Alden collecting, I've found myself less obsessed with pristine pairs and more interested in wearing as much of the collection as consistently as I can. Of course, this has required a more versatile wardrobe, which is where Epaulet comes in; at least I'm not alone here smile.gif
