Anyone know of a good cobbler in the philly area that I can go to for heel taps. Want to get all my Alden's heel tapped

So what did you think after seeing them in person? I had to use your picture to determine how the shade looked during the day. I had a busy week away from home and still haven't broken them out in good lighting.

Congrats and enjoy them!

This is one boot that I would jump all over if given the chance! These look like you acquired them back in the MTO days. They are amazing! Enjoy wearing them.

Cigar Indy? Nice! Hope the new girlfriend can deal with this hobby! Mine is surely getting... "over" the cost of them. Not over it in a good way, haha.

I got my chance to visit the Alden of DC store today.  It was great fun!

 

Rows of Shell goodness...

 

Bad pic, but Cigar, Black and Color 8 WT

 

Kathleen was awesome - measured me on the brannock and tried me out on a number of lasts in 11.5D and 12D.  She even put me in an E just to see what it was like (too wide for sure).  

 

My love of NST's is now confirmed and cemented...

 

Calf (in a dirty mirror)

 

Color 8 Shell

 

 

 

I've appreciated Color 8 for other people, but never saw a pair that I'd buy for myself.  That changed today with the pair above.  Those things are stunning.  Would love to see them in ravello, but guessing that is a multi-year wait.  I might even like them in Color 8 over Cigar...

 

What a great place!

slightly off-topic, but can anyone compare the sizing of C&J 341 last to the popular Alden lasts? I'm eyeballing the Brecon chukka but have no experience with C&J. For reference I'm 8.5D/9C on trubalance, 9C in modified, 9D in plaza, haven't found a good barrie fit.
