If you are near the Bay Area, Standard & Strange in Oakland are having an Alden Trunk Show this Saturday the 19th. In addition to their stock boots, you can order any other models of boots or shoes from the Alden line. With each pair you order you will get Alden shoe trees (a $35 value.) See you Saturday.
Oh, and the guys from Caledonia Spirits will be there pouring cocktails. A little bit of Holiday cheer!
Hey guys I have some overlap in Cigar and would be willing to flip my Cigar Antique Edge Shell Chukka's 9D. I wanted to offer these rare birds to my fellow Alden Thread users before a formal listing. PM me if your interested. I've post many pictures of these beauties. Pretty much just looking to recover my costs not profit, hey it's the season right!
that is a very fair deal; however, you have most likely earned ten demerits from the moderates
I'm on the J Gilbert pre-order for Plaza wingtips in #8 on commando. Edging is antique, though (@TommyB you were right). Plan is to convert them to black edging. I'm thinking I can do this on my own with some black edge products. Has anyone done this on their own or used a cobbler?
Can't say I've heard of many wanting to go from antique to black but I'm wondering if J Gilberts is the mahogany antique which is darker than the much beloved antique but not black. Either way going darker usually is much easier than the other way around.
