Crazy different creasing between right and left.

These are super nice! I have the same makeup with the same creasing as you. On all of my shell boots, my one foot creases much more and haphazardly. The other foot is calmer and only a single line across. It's like I walk funny or something haha.

Cigar boots AoM. Vs cigar bals Citi shoes
Also whisky

They look great. In direct sunlight they're definitely much lighter. As well, the factory is really using some dark polish on these. Just brushing and buffing them once lightened them up a tad. After 2-3 wearings, they'll easily be a medium-dark brown. Enjoy!

Though I don't know they'll ever look as good as zippy's above! I have the same boot as you and I hope that they'll one day look as ridiculous in color as these!

The intent of the blog is to provide people more static information about the Alden Brand (as this is a very dynamic environment and not a good place to post stationary content) and a platform for me to post longer thoughts and stuff. Personal sales is more of a secondary objective...

Thoughts would be rad.

Agatine Eyelet is a classic (and still a good read!). What about "Alden x MDubs"? Or "King Gunboat" or "The Ocho"... Just spit balling here

How about "Aldenology"? I remember seeing this word few times in this thread, sounds close to the content you are posting in your blog. :bigstar:

Those are very nice, but you lose a bit of the beauty of the brogue due to the material. :-(

Those are terrific Watch,  I am not sure I have seen that makeup on the Plaza Last before. That looks like the ultimate cap toe balmoral to me!

Something that indicates your personal passion for the make.

 

Hmmm... These are all great, let me see what else comes out... I do like the idea of making it more clear that it is my passion and not a store... ;-) I hate disappointing people when they ask what my store location and hours are or if they can get model 12345.... :-)

don't change the name. alden of san diego is already a household name.

Today I'm sporting my ravello wingtip boots (inspired by @mcarthur's recent post) and J Crew striped socks in support of the Houston Astros at an MLB viewing party.  Hope y'all are well...

@MrDV, still trying to keep up with your perfectly manicured lawn.

Cheers old friends...  :cheers:

ravello and lawn are looking great. well played my friend.

I won an ebay auction today. Something I find increasingly difficult to do. Straight tips on Aberdeen last. My Epaulet alpine grain are the only Aberdeen pair I have and i hope these fit similar to those. Same seller as the Nassau 4x4 a grail shoe @ 2500$ it was tough to pass-up but I have snuff Nassau from Unipair and really this ravello captor is much more versatile for me.

fantastic score.
