The Alden store here in DC just took delivery of unlined summer suedes, this year in navy and snuff. I grabbed a pair of the navy ones, barely missing a price increase from $437 to $456.
Barrie last, flex sole. Unusual to find something like that among the staid regular collection.
a very limited run according to the retailer
Actually, a mistake according to Kathy at Alden DC (I also have a pair). Evidently the factory got the order wrong but the shoes came out okay!
Last time I stopped in there she mentioned that she might re-order (I know, this is inconsistent with the comment of one of the authorities a few pages back announcing that the company owned stores don't do special make-ups).
If any one is interested they ought to reach out to her and maybe that will help her decide.
