Henry, these are aging quite well. Glad to see them getting good use!
Mac, you are looking tremendous in your King Tassels and Argyles. You wear them very well!

Lookin' sharp!


Ravello is so nice, especially your pair. Really nice patina and color on them.


I was looking at this makeup the other day. Very cool! Plus, Yenni is awesome.


Bon voyage! Those look really great.

I appreciate the kind words gentlemen.  As an enthusiast photographer, I suppose I'm like my aspiring-art-student daughter (on the road visiting schools with her this weekend):  She only sees the flaws and things that didn't turn out the way she wanted, even if the finished product looks great to us!

 

I didn't have great light (very rainy this morning) and didn't want to use a flash, so it is a little more open than I'd like - lose a little too much of the shoe :).  But it is fun, and a good reason to bust out my good camera!

 

Looking forward to wearing the shoes.  The boots have to go back to AoM to address a small issue (and they've been very awesome to work with), and then I get to start making them mine.  Really looking forward to it!

 

I have to say that I'd really love to see a makeup of that exact same boot but using the tobacco waxed leather from the LWB.  I think that would look really good - not quite as casual as brown CXL (which would also look very good - think I've seen that somewhere) and not quite as dressed as the burnished tan calf (I chose it for the ability to dress it up or down).  

 

I assume it has been done, but a fun sub-thread might be "Makeups you wish Alden would do"

Others report no difference but put me in the camp of those who find this model a little snugger than other barrie boots. Strange at how the responses vary so much on this . 

 

 

 

 

Boots are nice Mike (really nice) but I'm lovin the pants as well. I also like the discreet display of ankle. Don't see that very often with boots.  Nicely played. 

 

Thanks Shawn. This is the only boot that I own that I can go sockless with (I actually typically wear loafer socks in them). But as they are unlined, they are extremely comfy. I tried it once with another pair of boots and ended up running upstairs before even making it out the door due to the cutting of my ankles...

PSA for any 10.5 A/C's out there on the Aberdeen. Nice buy it now on a rare make-up. Not my listing.

 

Esoxm, thank you for the PSA, however, please be advised that these are on the GRANT Last and not the Aberdeen. These are called the High Vamp Loafer and are made by Alden of Madison today, but were once carried by a few other stores such as Alden DC. Just want to make sure that someone does not buy these thinking they are Aberdeen as they will be very disappointed. I would have been all over these but am a 10C on the Grant Loafers.

Uncle Mac, you are looking superb in your King CT Boots. Your boots are looking very beautiful and have a terrific shine on them. Your argyles are spot on. :-)

I haven't made a classifieds post or anything, but I'm considering selling my NIB whiskey shell cordovan wingtip boots on commando in size 12D. Purchased from 14oz this summer and NIB (tried them on once in my house just to see what the 379X fits like). Looking to sell at cost - but note that "cost" buying from a euro seller is more like Context's prices than any other retailer.

If you're interested, shoot me a PM and I can provide pictures, more photos, etc. Whiskey shell is flawless and gorgeous - I just think I could use the funds towards holes in my shoe wardrobe whereas the whiskey WTs kind of overlap with some other things I own.

My second one will be a question to the almighty forum members, regarding Aberdeen sizing:

 

I have a Tassel Loafers (563 and 564) in 10E and 10.5E.

The 10E is slightly too small for my foot. The 10.5E is lightly too long.

Do you guys think, the 10EEE would be a good solution for me?

 

And secondly, are there size differences between the Tassels and the Monk Straps (both cordovan). I know they are both on Aberdeen, but is either model known to run a little wider or longer?

I ask because, I found a nice pair on ebay in 10E and I am not sure if I should consider it...

 

Cheers


Good morning gentlemen,

 

I apologize for quoting myself and bringing up this older question again. However, I would like to renew my asking for your experiences with the Aberdeen Last.

 

Is there anyone who owns a Tassel Loafer and a Monk Strap (both Cordovan) and can comment on possible differences of the fit:

 

-Do both have the same fit?

-Is one of them running slightly longer or wider?

 

Help is very much appreciated!

 

Cheers

Looking good! Can't wait for my reverse chamois wingtip boot from Yenni in a few months! Do you find that the reverse chamois can take a beating?

Reverse chamois is about as tough as it gets. I'm already committed on several pre-orders, but those boots from Yenni are amazingly tempting.​

Absolutely. I wouldn't go wading in a river or anything but they've been drenched in the rain, gotten filthy, kept me dry and cleaned up great. They're my only crepe soled boot and are perfect for spending lots of time on my feet. Maybe my most comfortable boots for that use.

Just arrived from Brick + Mortar (Yenni is awesome).
