I would guess exclusivity. If you love these and want them, you must buy from bb. Too bad they don't offer other styles on the last. Tremont fits similarly, but it's hardly ever available as well.
Alden's modified seems to only be sold through a couple of retailers as well.
Lord knows why Alden does what it does, and why they don't ask for our help.

I can't figure out what 'Reputation' is.


Its the thumbs up button at the bottom area of the post.  Allows you to like the post without having to write anything.  Right next to the multi button.  Once you have a thumbs up for a post it adds a counter and shows how many thumbs up you got.

Again, do you actually know that or are you just saying it? Unless we hear from a retailer who has attempted to order that last on a make up and been denied, it's all BS conjecture.

I have not heard from a retailer in this regard. However, I have heard from one employed by Alden in this regard. I suppose it is possible said Alden employee could be mistaken - but I'm betting against it. biggrin.gif

I would never question @sevenfoldtieguy on anything Alden. Or C&J, or........

She designed a whiskey shell cordovan/black alpine grain saddle shoe, as well as two other versions.

Note the brass eyelets.   I guess she was ahead of her time, huh?

It's a shame Nicole and Blackbird are no longer in the shoe business.  She is/was a talented merchant.  

Really love the black/color 8 and black/ whiskey saddles. Someone else should do those, particularly black/color 8- Adam!

Sounds factual enough for me! I wonder what will happen to that last if BB finally cost cuts Alden out of their lineup.

Hey AW

 

People have tried black/color 8 in the past.  The problem is that color 8 can be very dark, almost black, and then the two-tone effect is lost.

Choco suede/color 8 saddle?? Or also not enough contrast? I was thinking about this last week during the j crew / epaulet discussion.

Agreed!  I love the black alpine/whiskey saddles and the Frans Boone chamois saddle.  Adam/Yenni -- count me in!
