If that spot is enough to make you return them, you need to quit buying Alden shells altogether. And I am not being sarcastic. You will have to return every pair you buy.

To cop a plea is fairly old and so is the use in illicit drug buying such as " did you cop or did you score " Im pretty sure thats the direct precusor to the usage you refer to .I remember it used when I was a kid and Im real old .

thanks for the info. I don't think I had heard anyone use "copped" before reading it here.

The Fat Herbie is a beast. Just picked one up in the marbled black shell, which is outstanding. I'm not used to a wallet this big. Apparently meant to be carried in the back pocket of some very sturdy trousers. But I don't regret copping it (you see what I did there...smile.gif). I think you'll love your ruby shell version. I took some photos but don't have them right at hand. Anyway there seems to be a shell cordovan wallet thread, so I suppose they go there. But maybe people here want to see an usual shell finish...

thanks, this will be my first piece from them. good to know you have had good experiences with their products.

cop (v.)
1704, northern British dialect, "to seize, to catch," perhaps ultimately from Middle French caper "seize, to take," from Latin capere "to take" (see capable); or from Dutch kapen "to take," from Old Frisian capia "to buy," which is related to Old English ceapian (see cheap). Related: Copped; copping.

thanks for the info zippyh. I honestly thought it was a combination of letters from some phrase, or a movie reference.

Mr DV: I had the pull tabs removed on the #4 Captoes. Actually called Alden to ask if they would do it, and they kindly obliged.

I'm not a big fan of pull tabs.

tsekh: That spot is meant to mark the spot where you look down and contemplate the fact that you paid HOW MUCH for shoes?

Just kidding...gorgeous whiskeys. Enjoy!

Great shoes, have not seen that makeup anywhere, where are they from?

post #52525 of 122416

A Ravello sort of day. Wish I could get the colors better.

With all the whiskey talk we thought we would put up our remaining whiskey stock.  We have some sizes left and most are small.  We have free shipping still available and if you are ordering to the states no import taxes as it is an American product.  Please pm me if you have a questions about sizes.

So I'm an 11 C in barrie shoes and an 11 D in barrie high boots (Leffot tankers, JCrew PCTs that I tried on), which I find to run narrow/small. I've tried on the 2 eyelet barrie chukka in 11 D, and found them to be too big (like barrie shoes), to the point that I wondered if they were 11.5 Ds incorrectly marked 11 D. I'd think the 6 eyelet chukka would fit the same as the 2 eyelet version, but can anyone chime in?

Vacation last week, so I've been out of the loop for a bit (does Alden make beach sandals?)

TactileOne, thanks for the heads up brother. A makeup like this is to good to let pass by.
