Apparently, they only take a few weeks as opposed to sending to Alden, which can take like 4 months!
I was just thinking this might be a good alternative?

nick at bnelson does excellent work

-- Ugh. You are right. Plenty. I have been battling with what to get next after my first pair of shells - LWB Color 8. Been looking and looking at the color 8 captoe boots which seem fairly easy to get...but like the color 8 and black wingtip boots - also available...

-- Where do we get the captoe with the brogueing (sp?) like you have? - can remember the name of your boot? 

-- Coveting the indy 403 and was at NEED SUPPLY CO in Richmond today - Nice store! - and saw the Wolverine 1000 mile boot in some diff colors - way tooooo many boots and too little time and wife approval.

-- You have a great set of shoes - someone posted some cigar lwb earlier today - really looked great!

-- Thanks for sharing.

I'll just second...sure!

once you acquire your second pair, you've gone down the point of no return. it will be a couple months max before you start longing for cigar...or ravello...and loafers and bluchers and then you are the old lady with cats

Hah, maybe once these are all well worn and getting resoled, I'll pick up some whiskey to keep me company.

I got the captoe boots from J Crew. My only wish is that they didn't have speed laces, but no big deal. The brogueing and Barrie last looks so good with jeans. In all honesty, I just boxed them up for an exchange. They came without the Alden box or dust bags, there were some weird wrinkles in the shell, it looked like someone had tried them on (slight creasing already), and some of the speed laces looked a little loose. So, I figured I should have some boots I'm happy with if I am going to spend that much. They're already sending another pair to me.

I spoke with Bryan today - he said they are coming but wouldn't commit as to when - all he would say was that the pre-order was last summer, and that Alden was taking about a year to deliver -

They are beautiful boots, IMHO; can't wait to get them -

My Cigar Chukkas after a handful of wears. Starting to need the Mac Method. I really love the depth of colour that cigar offers. I ended up with 3 Aldens in cigar.

From what I'm gathering, the clunkier lasts go well with Raw Denim in an "Americana" Workwear type look, or the simple American Trad. Any feel like sharing?


First, I have seen the way you dress and i think you  are spot on. I was young something stationoned in Panama a long time ago and I asked my supervisor, "How do you know how to cook?" He said I know what tastes I like so I cook with those spices."

I think that is how I dress...I have LWB on Barrie (redundant?) and several pairs of Japanese selvage. I love the way the Barrie fits my foot and the heaviness of denim from Japan - my second homeland. I am from Seattle and love Filson so I try to incorporate an element of Filson in my outfits whenever possible because I am outdoorsman wanna be cowboy stuck in the city and loving it and  driving an F250 to and from work - because - i just like it. Can't park it in NYC but that's why I stay in Stanton Island and take the free ferry - reminds me of Seattle - it just works. 

--- To answer your question, I wear my Aldens with denim and chinos for now in my free time. I buy Aldens (966 and LWB) that I hope to wear with suits or business casual someday soon when I start my new career - plan early, prepare properly and when in doubt, buy Alden.

---way past 1030 and toddler is still awake after a long day of traveling. Great day.

hello friends, this is pair of burgundy wax indy's from TRES BIEN SHOP

 

i think i scored a good deal as you can see. these are my first boots and I love them so far. Only complaint is that the tongue on the left shoe slides sometimes if the laces are too tight, but this can be solved by not having the laces super tight. by far the best boots i've ever purchased, and i get looks from just about everyone bigstar[1].gif
