So I finally put all my shoes away, well boots mostly...

Top row (l to r): Epaulet Ironside Indys, AoDC black Joseph boot, TSM #8 tanker boot

Next row (l to r): Unionmade #8 Hallecks, C&J (cigar) Lindricks, TSM snuff PCT boot

Following row (l to r): 4060 #8 captoe boot , AoDC cigar Captoe boot, Leffot black Alpine Grain Graintrippers

Bottom row (l to r): Leffot #8 LWBs, AoC cigar LWBs, Frans Boone Chamois/snuff saddles

It's too bad the lighting is terrible in this room. There's some good looking stuff in there.
Still have that empty shelf up there so there's still room for the collection to grow smile.gif

According to the Alden encyclopedia (Alden of San Diego / @mdubs) they are:

Alden Wingtip Balmoral x Brooks Brothers



Vendor:
 Brooks Brothers
Model Number: 
06604
Last:
 M-75 (Similar to Plaza)
Material:
 Color 8 Shell Cordovan
Special:
 This unique make up is made around the Brook’s equivalent of the Plaza Last and has exposed agatine eyelets.



On my feet, the M-58 last fits a little longer than the Plaza, so I gave my Brooks 9.5 shell wingtips to my son. But definitely not my Plaza 9.5's. I have been waiting for Brooks to restock for a long time. So long that I am concerned something has changed there. My deep-throat source at Alden says that Brooks is not ordering as much shell as it used to.

I really like the looks of that wingtip.

I agree they look good with Jeans. I'd probably wear with a slimmer jean and a smaller cuff. The baggier jean with large cuff overwhelms the shoe a bit.

The AoM version with exposed metal eyelets is my favorite snuff PTB

This is my first Plaza-like last shoe, and I got them in my TTS 8.5D, and you're right where this M-58 fit is a little longer (got some room in the toes) but it's fine with thicker socks for me.  It's a beautiful shoe/makeup so it'd be a shame if Brooks Brothers didn't re-stock them

Heads up, Mr Porter is hosting their sale and although they do not carry alden, they are currently selling the J.Crew lookalike boot for $125 for anyone interested.  http://www.mrporter.com/en-us/mens/jcrew/kenton-suede-boots/488707

Damn, Ben. Love it. 

 

BTW, the flat welt on the Halleck looks spectacular.
