From what I have concluded it's a show of respect to Uncle Mac who has brought us the two Mac methods and has the largest Alden collection that I know of.
On a separate note, do we all agree that this is not shell?
the model # is 905 which is burgundy calfpost #57274 of 1224168/15/13 at 5:02pmpost #57275 of 1224168/15/13 at 5:03pmpost #57276 of 1224168/15/13 at 5:04pmpost #57277 of 1224168/15/13 at 5:06pmpost #57278 of 1224168/15/13 at 5:13pmpost #57279 of 1224168/15/13 at 7:16pmpost #57280 of 1224168/15/13 at 7:20pmpost #57281 of 1224168/15/13 at 7:34pmpost #57282 of 1224168/15/13 at 7:40pmQuote:Originally Posted by Winterbourne
Well, I just got my Indys in from j.crew, and while I was concerned about the sizing since I normally wear a 10d on the Barrie, my bigger dilemma is the moc seam on the right boot. Do you guys think this is uneven enough that it warrants replacing them?
Our cat likes Alden, too.
Doesn't this defect change the fit? The fact that it is on the vamp makes it a bit more obvious.post #57283 of 1224168/15/13 at 7:43pmQuote:Originally Posted by cincikidQuote:Originally Posted by ReppTiePrepster
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The tobacco LWB from J crew was my very first Alden. Stevent is correct. They were originally orangish, a little bit more so than the burnished tan, but the newer ones have a darker tan that looks to have a more matted finish. I really like that look and wished I had it rather than the old one. I still enjoy this one (on the right)...
Not the best quality pic to show its color...
Are the dark brown also from JCrew? If so, which one do you like better, tobacco and dark brown? I actually ordered both with the recent 20% off coupon, intending to keep just one of them. I seem to like tobacco better, but your dark browns look stunning.
Yes, both are J Crew and both were my first two pairs of Aldens. TBH, I wear my dark brown more often because they are more versatile. If I had the newer tobacco version that looks more dark-tan with a matted finish, I would wear those more often.
Tough decision, but can't lose. Good luck my friend!post #57284 of 1224168/16/13 at 12:33ampost #57285 of 1224168/16/13 at 12:40am
