I think Cigar does have a 'greenish' under tone under certain lighting which is why some people prefer the C&J brown. However, C&J does not make LWB icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

AoC and I second Adam's excellent customer service. Do not hesitate to do business with him (if you have not already)!

Alden x Leffot

Does anybody know if there's a supplier for a Black Shell Plaintoe Balmoral on the Plaza?

Alden Madison NY has this shoe on the Aberdeen Last. I'd prefer Plaza if possible.

Thanks!

AoC Cigar LWB

picked up a pair of irregulars - the reason being that the one of the toes was lighter than the rest of the shoe. I can't notice it though, so I'm happy

Adam is awesome.  I second the recommendation for Alden of Carmel.  C&J may not make a LWB, but their Marlow wingtip is spectacular! I have the cigar LWB and I'm about to pick up the Marlow also.

I am wearing these right now... RL Marlows are essential for cordovan fans, a lot of guys in this thread own them

Two experiences with AoC irregulars suggest to me that these are some of the only real Alden bargains (Shoemart may be the same, no experience there). I think there's a very high standard.

IIRC, the difference is that AOC's irregulars are sent to them as first quality, and he decides that he doesn't think it qualifies.

I really wish the Marlow fit me - I got a 12D during their 40% + 15% sale last year, but they were too wide, and unfortunately they aren't made in narrow widths. I tried sizing down to an 11.5 but they were too short in length. Looks like I'll have to stick to waiting 18 months for Alden pre-orders satisfied.gif
