Looking great Don! Enjoy your DC 'vellos Today!
Lovely looking Boots! They have a nice shine on them. Sorry about the squeak. Hopefully it goes away soon!
I agree, there's just something about the darker strap that makes me still want the Whiskey LHS. I bought the C&J Harvard loafers in whiskey shell thinking it would satisfy that itch, but I'd still jump at a pair of 8D Whiskey LHS's if one popped up
Thanks guys! These were my first pair of shell, and I'm now fully addicted. They started out as a much darker eggplant shade, and lightened up a bit over the months next to my window. I'm embarrassed to say I'm given them a full on conditioning and polish maybe 3 times over a year and a half; gotta love Alden shell.
Mike, the Harlechs are doing great. They're taking on a nice Ravello tone that actually caused me to pass up on the Daytrippers when my turn came around a few months ago! Hopefully that doesn't get me banned from the Alden thread...
I am not sure, frankly, I am not too familiar with the 379x Last as that is not a common Alden Last. No stock shoes use it and I do not own anything on it. I also have never actually seen it in person either. The best way to find out for sure is to send a note to Alden's general E-mail address (email@example.com), but do it quick, because they typically close early on Fridays!
