Hi everyone,

I'm putting together another Alden gMTO and want to share it with the thread. The entire run is limited to 18 pairs, projected delivery time is late this year or early next year. The store submitting this run is very reputable and trustworthy. This is the make up:

Material: Chocolate suede
Last: Barrie
Design: NST boot
Stitching: Contrast stitching, Indy stitching (**please see picture below, this is an extra line of stitching that sits on the "waist" of the shaft and runs parallel to the length of the boot. It's often seen on Indy boots and JCrew Alden boots**)
All color matched eyelets
Welt: 360 degree flat welt
Edge: Tan Antique
Sole: Commando
Handsewn split toe

Make up will be similar to this, except for: flat welt, all eyelets, and Indy stitching


Here is an example of Indy stitching:


Terms:
This order is through a long time Alden stockist, they wish to remain anonymous in this stage of the gMTO. All standard sizes and widths are available, and they do not need to be consecutive in size. Size changes will not be allowed once the run is submitted. Total run is limited to 18 pairs, around half of the spots are already filled.

This order is not yet confirmed by Alden, I expect it to be confirmed since it will be submitted by a very reputable stockist. The final price should be around $600, the stockist requires a non-refundable $200 deposit. Expected delivery is hard to tell at this point, but should be 3-4 months after order is confirmed. Safe to say this will be in our hands winter 2015 or Q1 2016.

As with all Alden hand made products, there is a slim chance for QC issues, boots not passing QC, or not being made entirely. The stockiest will request the boot to be sent to them and will address the defects with appropriate refund/discount.

If you are interested, please PM me your: name, email, barrie size. Once we reach the run size and/or 1 week from today, I'll submit the list to the stockiest and everyone can call in with their deposits.




Thanks!

Dan

Great make up! Definitely considering if there is a place in my rotation.

Out of curiosity, didn't you not too long ago list a pair similar to these boots for sale? Poor sizing? Change of Heart?

Thanks man, let me know what you decide. Your are correct, I had the chocolate tankers from LS, but incorrect size. Just trying to get a similar boot, but with the details I thought would be better. =)

Very cool makeup, Zenny. If I didn't already own the LS Choco Suede Tanker, I'd be all over this. I especially like the added detail of the Indy stitch.

Thanks man! The LS boot is a very very nice boot, enjoy it.

I could use a makeup like that, would prefer Commando though.

Thinking to pick up my first pair or Alden plain toe blucher

What kinda suits would match the Alden PTB 990 or 9901 ?

I suppose Jcrew but would Dior Homme or Margiela suits match them ?

I would think fall/winter fabrics with a lot of texture like tweed, etc.

This beauty just arrived to my home, have to say it's really worth for almost a year of waiting. Congrats to folks who receive the recent batch of Cigar CT boots from DC. Best!

@mdubs Does Alden do a true cap toe? It seems like the JCrew #8 one is but I am not sure or perhaps it is the broguing that makes it seem that way?

I am not sure what you are referring to. The DC Cap Toe Boot is made out of two pieces of leather. They just taper the edges down on the Cap Toe to make it have a slimmer transition profile.

Congrats!  I was on the same run as you (also waited around 12 months) and they turned out beautiful.  An amazing shade of Cigar with tons of different tones.  Now wear them and let us know what you think!
