I dislike double leather solar for this reason. ill take a single leather oiled sole over double leather any day of the week

Namor, thanks for the info on this. I guess I'll go ahead and stick it out and see what happens once the leather gets broken in. What's been your experience on the length of time it takes for the break in?

Alden SF indicated they wouldn't take a special order for rare shell colors. Maybe someone else would. Even so, the wait might be nearly infinite.

I'm good for a LWB in anything but #8 (and non-Barrie last, obviously). I'd prefer cigar, whiskey, or Ravello, I think.

Tommy P said Alden will not make a LONGWING BOOT. So that is out.

Shortwing boot is definitely doable; it would take at minimum 8 months, but it would be worth the wait if we can get exactly what we want.

If you are for sure interested, just PM over the next week and I will collect the votes and try and figure out a design that satisfies everyone.

Namor and RKD, you in for shortwing boot in Whiskey on what last? Grant or Plaza?

How we doing today guys? I'm a longtime Alden Junkie who has lurked @ for awhile. Please don't tell the authorities. I was

wondering if the Unionmade Armstrong wingtip is actually a shortwing boot? Thanks

Also, what's up with this? Anybody else have poorly fitted dovetail pads that leave gaps like this?

467


I bought those shoes and my heel slippage went away after two full days (non-consecutive) of wearing to work. BTW I also thought the dovetail finishing was subpar on mine as well although not as bad as yours. FWIW I can see ours are creasing the same so far. I really LOVE these shoes and have had lots of compliments on them. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Zippy, I think we were both referring to Tom Park at Leathersoul. Trying to be funny by turning it into Tommy P. biggrin.gif
