Post some pics if you can. I'm trying to wrap my head around what the loden color would look good with.

Loden looks good with jeans, khakis, trousers in any kind of brown or grey. Heck, I wear my loden ranger moccs with all my casual pants and even shorts with no socks. I think it's quite versatile. I'm anxiously waiting for my loden Indy boots which may or may not ever come into existence

Got my first pair of Alden Irregulars today.

I'm pretty happy with them. Minor blemishes include some darker spots on the shoes. (Sand suede material). Chances are if I received these as a normal pair of Aldens, I would most likely keep them as well as I'm not that picky. As long as the stitching doesn't come undone or something of that extent, I'm a happy camper.


I know these shoes will get dirt sooner or later. Anyone got tips on cleaning sand suede? Thanks!

I get what you're saying. Black shell lacks that depth of color and does not "evolve" the same way that other shell colors do.

However, black shell does age beautifully and has superior durability to calf. If you want a black shoe or boot to look good for pretty much all eternity, shell is a great way to go.

I agree with you. I only have one pair in black shell (and don't plant to buy another any time soon) but they always look great. My BB PTBs always get compliments. I have had them for a few years now and they still look fresh. My calf shoes always look beat after a few years ( i hate the small creases that calf tends to get at the folds.)
