Wanted to contribute to the Cigar p0rn, but won't be wearing them until a wedding reception tonight - so figured I'd at least get some under good daylight for the jollies of SFers. Photos are completely untouched, pure color, etc.
(slowly acknowledging that the vamp on the right shoe is lighter than the left... good ol' Alden QC. But it only makes the pair more endearing)
Bar none one of the top 3 shoes Alden has ever produced, if not the best. I lucked out and got my hands on a pair up here in Toronto a few years back.
Great looking shoe. Thats a keeper .
Edit: Dont sweat the vamp issue. Like you said, in a way, it shoes that everything is hand crafted. My LHS has shade variations on the vamp too...Like anything (relationships, cars, houses) you'll find problems if you look hard enough.
