Thanks, brother! I know the flex sole is uncomfortable for some, but I think these wear like slippers. There's something endearing about the copious rolls too. These guys hang on to water spots though. But they're only noticeable in direct sunlight.post #120668 of 12241612/3/15 at 4:07pmTotally get that.. Posted a photo earlier with water mark from grooming whatever. Gone now. Wear the shell.. Awesome Unlined #8 Dover. Love that makeup. Need to get on that list... BTW 9D NIB lurkers pm. Good night to all, it's been nasty here in the West...post #120669 of 12241612/3/15 at 5:00pmQuote:it look like a barrie last cap toe boot
tassels make cap toe boot named "hunting boot" with a 270degree welt and barrie last, you can google it and see.
But if you dont mind the last and welt, just buy the alden 4060 in grant last and 360welt as it will be easier to buypost #120670 of 12241612/3/15 at 5:34pmWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)Quote:
Enjoy often and in the best of health my friend! Fine acquisition!
Extremely underrated Uncle. You wear them quite well!
Fine combo Dubsy! Lookin' quite dapper my friend!Quote:
I like this boot a little more each time I see them! Enjoy often my friend!Quote:Originally Posted by stevefok
Always too lazy sharing photos here as IG is too convenient. But would like to take some time to share these Saddles that I recently acquired.
This is a pair of Color 8 Scotch Grain Shell x Black Shell Saddles. Alden made these for SHIPS Japan's 30th anniversary. Base on the code inside the shoes, these should be made around 2007. I am really delighted to be able to get this pair in BNIB condition. The Grain shell is truly something else and I can't wait to see how they age.
Hubba hubba... Enjoy them often my friend!Quote:
Kickin' myself for telling Anthony that I couldn't buy them when I got the call a couple of weeks ago! Fabulous my friend, enjoy!
Another wonderful cigar make-up. Lookin' great my friend!
IMO, the quintessential Alden make-up!Quote:Originally Posted by iLuveketchup
I really like the regular color 8 over the newer batch that looks like cigar. The Leffot Naval has more than 30 wears, worn to the Arizona & Utah desert, gum from the Vegas bars, and who knows what... but it is still very dark. The JCrew PCT has only a handful of wears but has patina'd nicely. Hopefully the newer crop of color 8s are like the older shade.Quote:Quote:
I can't keep up. Y'all are Killin' it in a big way! Cheers friends... enjoy often and in great health!

Long time since I posted a pic. Traveling to Tampa for a conference. Natty Chrmxl LWBs are a fine travel shoe! Sorry for the lousy i-phone pic in the airport. @tampatravel
are you around town at all old friend??post #120675 of 12241612/3/15 at 6:30pmI know nothing about Alden other than the fact that they're nice looking shoes. I'd like a pair of snuff suede pennies but don't want to pay the $650 cdn required to get my hands on them. There's a pair available to me at a very good price I'm eyeing but it's in an awkward size. I'm usually a 9D and these are a 9.5C. Would these fit if I wore an insert or something?
