Just about ready to pack up the unlined LHS's and the C&J Harvard's for the Winter. 80 here today so one last ride in my most worn loafer, color 8 BB Unlined LHS. Onward to Chukkas and NST Boots.

I have no idea why TSM has someone "sign off" on a pair of Aldens before sending only to have them arrive in this condition. Thanks in advance for any insight!

No offense, but natural cxl is going to get beat the hell up and that little scratch/scuff will just add to the character.

It's your prerogative to return them, of course, but they'll look like that within an hour of wear, anyways. This isn't shell...

Wholly shit so sorry for the bent way the hell over making my lower legs look freakish. Just view the bitchin loafers .. thankfully it's now sock season here on the Sonoran Desert.

So many nice new Alden tankers have been posted. You guys inspire me to stop being a lazy poster. Here are my nearly 18-month-old Leffot tankers with brand new PBJ xx-007s.

Henry, you are looking very good today in your Color 8 Wingtip Boots. Adam's model is unique as it doesn't have the broguing on the back.

That is the Chippy I know! You are looking very good and relaxed in your Unlined Color 8 LHSes.

Doc, it is always nice to see boots and shoes. Thanks for sharing them. Your carpet is pretty awesome as well...

Color 8 perf cap toe on Hampton last .
Super dress shoe, very very comfortable.

Zippy, those Snuffs are great, but those pants are even cooler.

Navy CXL Chukka from Leffot, the single leather sole and crazy supple leather land this right up there with the unlined modified boot as my most comfortable Alden make up.

C'mon man. Put it in your sig. We're close to the same size and I while I love the SF forum, I feel the exact opposite about B&S.

Seriously Chipshot, there are no legs that would look bad in those shoes. No worries my-man, you are to LHS's what Mike is to LWB's.

Without a doubt, my next non-boot purchase. IMO, there isn't a better bal than this. Well done Prez.

There are very few Alden retailers who care more about the Alden brand than Adam of AoC. I never have to worry about defects in any shoes I receive from him. These AF53's ere no exceptions.....

They were in my sig, and they already sold. Sorry. Just wanted to give the folks here a first shot at the rarer shell, didn't know that it would upset you.

Looking good! I love my pair and think it's a very underrated stock model!
