Ordered the scotch grain indy from unionmade. Somehow owning 4 shoes in the same model feels wrong, but so right.
^^I really want those scotch grain indy's. Very sweet.
Totally agree with Speekez and El Argentino, people obsess way too much about small inconsistencies in color, etc. Other than black shell, I believe the color differences are marks of authenticity and character. People ding Alden for poor quality, which I whole heartedly agree with (and have witnessed first-hand) when it comes to loose stitching and other complaints, but the color differences are inherent in shell.
Did I mention I have long wings in
ravello on crepe
black scotch grain BBBF
black calf on flex
snuff suede on flex
snuff suede/cognac calf on flex
cognac calf on flex

As some of you may know through messages exchanged with me, my shoe size has recently increased dramatically, resulting in most of my shoes no longer fitting. I am trying to fill in a new rotation of shoes for work. If anyone is interested in selling a pair of shell cordovans (preferably boots, but also considering lace up shoes) in the barrie 9D or any other last 9.5D, please get in touch. I won't clutter up the thread any more than with this message, and I thank those of you who have come through for me with a sale here or there so far.
thanks everyone. this is where community comes up big!
