This is a cross post from the thrift thread, but I scored these a few weeks ago. I am finally initiated (on a graduate student budget) and very happy about it. When I get a spare minute and a few dollas, I will buy some products and a horse hair brush and get to work on these mofos.
Nice score man! A good brushing will mike those look good as new.
I never find Alden at thrift shops up here in Canada; only Allen Edmonds...and never shellpost #33696 of 1224168/24/12 at 6:02ampost #33697 of 1224168/24/12 at 6:24ampost #33698 of 1224168/24/12 at 6:55ampost #33699 of 1224168/24/12 at 7:59amQuote:Originally Posted by sevenfoldtieguy
I have this shoe - wonderful. It is a single leather sole also.
Soon I will be sending my vintage Hanover black shell ptb's to BNelson (in need of restoration) to have them convert my standard sole, double leather, to the flex sole, single leather. They are lined, but they are so well broken in that they will feel almost exactly like my unlined color 8 PTBs.
From Nick at BNelson:
In addition to the Alden Waterloc I had some JR soles dipped by the same outfit. Essentially they are now JR Waterloc.
Just passing this along ...
As I've said before, Nick's work is great and he has been nothing but first-class to deal with.post #33700 of 1224168/24/12 at 9:08ampost #33701 of 1224168/24/12 at 9:15ampost #33702 of 1224168/24/12 at 9:51ampost #33703 of 1224168/24/12 at 9:53ampost #33704 of 1224168/24/12 at 9:57ampost #33705 of 1224168/24/12 at 10:00amQuote:
Once someone bids on it the Buy It Now goes away. Someone who is interested in them is not forced to pay the Buy It Now price, if they place a bid. It's just an option for someone who wants it at that price immediately.
