You guys are nuts. A bloody Alden T-Shirt or Polo. Smh...

Let the shoes speak for themselves. A shirt is far beyond the pale of good taste in my world, unless you're an Alden employee or something. Best of luck with this very peculiar project.

Does any store stock black (or color 8) shell unlined PTBs anymore?

Since the third word of the Official Alden Thread is "AF43", here is a brief history of style AF43.

 

The idea for AF43 came from this magazine clipping which we have kept since 2000 or before:

 

 


The boot on the left was the inspiration for AF43, a black shell cordovan high boot, Trubalance last, with the commando sole.

 

Here is a picture of AF43 taken in August of 2001:

 

The commando sole is currently in its third iteration, and the commando sole used for the AF43 shown is the second version.  You can read more about the commando sole at Alden of San Diego:  http://aldenofsandiego.com/going-commando-the-history-of-aldens-commando-sole/

 

AF43 is Alden of Carmel's longest-running high boot (2001-2015), and possibly the longest running, continuously made (make-up, non-catalog style) high boot made by Alden.  Here it is today with the third version of the commando sole:

Gentlemen,

The hospital sent us home.

37 weeks is too early...

At this point it's an hour by hour play by play.

Thanks.

Maybe the Dr. saw your boots and wanted to give you a chance to go home and put some beaters on....???

I've never even seen a front line Alden guy in logo'd gear.
