Tom

Lots of people on this forum have a "longing" for Alden boots!

I wanted all of them to have the contrasting welt and edge trim. The LWBs came with natural welt and black edge trim (not a good look); the Chukkas came back with black welting and edge trim (also not what I wanted).

They've had them for 2 months and they're backed up - I called to check on the status and I'm sure that prompted someone to hustle to get them done. Very frustrating - I'm sure they will fix the problem but it's a pain.

Both are a 10D on the Barrie last. The Longwings are brand new and the #8 captoe boots have only been worn once.

I'd think these'll be great in the Fall/Winter - unless you're looking for something Seatle-ish with the waterloc or commando soles?

Nice shines, lagsun -- good job!

I would be on board for a cigar shortwing on the Grant, although I'd much rather do a blucher than a boot, especially if Mike at Epaulet is already getting a cigar shortwing boot on the Barrie in October.

 

I dislike the Barrie's shape on bluchers, but it looks terrific on boots; I have the Ravello version of that boot that everyone loves, and it's fabulous. The difference in shape would be more noticeable, IMO, if we did a blucher. Antiqued edgetrim, of course.

Sorry for my ignorance, but by "long wing boot" do you mean the detailed stitching goes around the heel like it does in a shoe?

I would jump all over a pair of cigar wing tip boots with commando sole. And I would prefer the detail to go all the way around rather than the smooth heel most Alden wing tip boots seem to have.

Question to those with dark #8s: How long did it take for the shoes to lighten up to a burgundy hue?


Here's what I wore today: natural chromexcel Indy oxfords.

I consider my cap toe #8s to be dress boots. I'm planning to wear that to my interview on Wednesday. Well that, or my burgundy calf short wing boots.
