but that is Alden's corporate website.

I'm looking for a dress shoe in one of these colors. I have a #8 shortwing, #8 perf captoe boot, #8 chukka, black shell LWB (Grant), natural CXL PTB, and brown suede tassle loafer. I think that one of the other shell colors in a shoe is the next buy.
Thanks!

Out on their maiden voyage today; my Cigar LWBs which I picked up from Shoemart at the end of last year. Can't believe the great colour tones that Cigar displays.

I just got mine too. Love the color. Good showing, sir.

According to my buddy at Alden SF, Alden will no longer be offering one-off custom orders. Shops can do custom runs/collaborations, but the shoe +$300 program for custom specs is over. Alden will also stop producing belts. The mail-in shoe rehab program is also coming to an end. This is all because the factory cannot keep up with their regular orders and want all hands on the production line.



As a side note, does anyone know where I can find a tan suede Indy boot?

Thanks for that post! I've been wanting to see a 'real' photo of those. So many of the vendor photos leave a lot to question. The depth of color is great...sure makes me want to go buy a pair.

I'm sorry, but that is ridiculous. That means you hire more workers because you have obvious demand for your product. You don't shave off details that customers have expected for years.

This just simply can't be true. Not offering recrafting would be almost suicidal

Thanks. The red micro soles are bummer. Could a cobbler re-sole these with a leather sole and a wood/heather heel? How does the Trubalance last compare to the barrie?

Well, at least there's b nelson to accommodate recrafting.

Sorry about that. Poor cutting and pasting. And I would think they must have some stock of what they show on the website, buy you have to call to ask.

Updates:

Makeup looks like it'll be: Flat welt, blind eyelets, double sole thickness, antique edgetrim. It's currently 4 Waterlock vs. 5 Commando vs. 2 Leather (but leather and waterlock look essentially the same...).
