These boots are sublime. Could someone give me some more info on these? I'm new to looking at Alden, but would love a pair of these. Which color is this too?

I love my king cap toes as well, but I think I would have enjoyed them even better if they were from my GF.

The spoiler tag is simply:
[ Spoiler ]...text or image you want inside the spoiler... [ / spoiler ] (Note: You have to remove the spaces (e.g., between the "[" and the "S") to make the tags work, but if i did that then you wouldn't see the tags...)

So it would look something like this when you are working in the Reply Edit Box and want to add a spoiler to hide a photo:

[ Spoiler ][URL=htt:/www.styleforum.net/content/type/61/id/xyzavc/]
[/URL][ / spoiler ]

For a string of photos, you can start outside the "[" for the first one and then close on the far side of the last "]", if that makes sense.

It's kind of a pain on an iPhone. Requires some careful tapping to get the tags in the right place. It would be nice if they'd add that button to the mobile UI.

Hopefully this is helpful. If there's an easier way to do this, I'm all ears. smile.gif

It's simple math RTP, slick combination + impeccable shine = unbeatable look. Nicely done.

Don't think I've seen this mentioned here - J Crew has a 20% off code that WORKS for Alden stuff. WIT20 is the code. Not sure how long this will last. Just picked up a pair of the cordovan perforated captoes!

Out-freakin-standing Al in Philly!  I've gotta get a pair of either the boot or the straight tip shoe... very sharp.  BTW, hold on to that wife of yours like there's no tomorrow! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Uncle, while these are fantastic, I think I like your whiskey NST from yesterday a smidge more.  Is this ravello NST on the barrie? Are your whiskey NST from yesterday on aberdeen?  Both are sublime. Wear in great health...

+1  From wife or GF is quite meaningful.

A vigorously professional look RTP. Never offer evidence in open court. If necessary you can explain things in chambers. The #8 SWB is a classic.

Thanks DonL. I plan on wearing in wet conditions when a dressier attire is required.

Uncle, thank you.  No sign of rain today so I thought I'd be safe from that deadly combination... wet conditions + marble floors + commando soles = broken bones!

I believe it is the other way around

Ravello NST = Aberdeen

Whiskey NST = Barrie

That is correct. My Ravello NSTs are on the Aberdeen. All the other shell colors are Barrie.

I know that that is the available line-up on TSM, but the whiskey NST from the other day looked a little narrower/sleeker than today's ravello NST. (I could certainly be wrong.)  I thought Uncle may have gotten these in different make-ups elsewhere, like Leather Sole.  I think I prefer the sleeker look of the aberdeen.  I am still without NST.  I just pulled the trigger on a couple of other shells.  Looks like NST's will have to wait a long while.
