i wish we were the same size. your b&s listing are always tantalizing
Same here, chum.
The boot on the right the bottom eyestays are way misaligned
after I looked again on my comp, I still feel the left boot (on a person/right in the original photo) had a larger than "alden normal" amount of shift between eyelets. just my opinion, and IIRC, those boots were plaza lasted, of which I have very little experience with now (looking at you namor )
that being said, I'd be awfully hesitant to send anything back out the states to a retailer, especially if it were a relatively hard makeup to come by.. Had those plaza lasted ravello boots I got from overseas last year came with any issue short of a tear in the leather, I'd have kept them. Shame to have to resort to such an attitude with items at this price, but I guess thats alden.. I was elsewhere on this forum and saw someone with Vass quality issues. I've never touched Vass, but from what I know of pricing, I'd be going into a purchase for a pair of their footwear with higher expectations than say alden.
off my soapbox. carry on. Namor, have anything interesting you're gonna put up in the marketplace? Let me know, I'm bored with what I currently have.
I haven't bought from them but they are indeed Color 8. No way Barney's would have a whiskey, ravello or cigar Alden PTB and we don't know about it here.
awesome looking boots there, NAMOR!
Talking about Chamois, Does anyone knows if the chamois makeups by Alden is really chamois hide?
I was once told by a salesman in Tessels HK that the chamois used by Alden is not actually chamois hide, its actually cow hide but gone through different treatment than the regular cow hide.
I am not sure if he really knows what he's talking about or just telling BS. Anyone have more idea on this?
TheShoeMart does this exact makeup, except on the Grant last. Go 1/2 up from Barrie (i.e., go TTS on Grant).
