They haven't made the Bespin last since 1980. If you can find it, it looks best paired with a ravello shell holster, replete with thigh strap. I hear MrDV and Mac are the only ones who have one, though.

Long time lurker, first time poster. My first pair of Aldens came today: color 8 LWB from a little shop in Seattle. I'm blown away by a few things: the size of the shoes, the color and craftsmanship, and the immediate comfort. I don't think I'll have to worry about breaking these in. They're already remarkably comfortable. I've never owned a pair of shoes so bulky; they're like boots. Any advice on trouser/shirt combos? The last pic is them next to my AE park avenues for scale...

Etsy. I found someone who makes custom cigarette holders. They are the perfect container, holding approx 8-10 cards. I keep the credit card/ cigarette case in a jacket pocket and the impact leffot fold in my back pocket, which prevents one from having a wallet ass.

A little more than 1 1/2 of a retail pair of Aldens... plus shipping and handling fees. The shell doesn't have the signature "glow" of Alden, the finish is rough and not as refined as C&J, there are always some "idiosyncrasies" that goes along with Vass, but at the end of the day they work out well for me.

Thanks! Vass. I had to be patient though because they typically only have black and #8... Tom (another SF member, although I think he has a new name), is a good person to use as a proxy if you haven't had experience with Vass.

That is a fantastic combo for everyday wear, looks, and functionality.

I would most assuredly do the same.

Alden cigar ptb converted from double leather to dainite by b.nelson. I like the dainite, good for wet days

 

These are sublime. Where did you get this make up? Can't recall seeing a pair of cigar ptb with dark metal eyelets like this.

Getting ready for Whiskey Wednesday!!! Alden Whiskey LHS from Citi Shoes. I just picked these guys up on Thanksgiving week due to a tip someone posted here... I love their color, so beautiful in person and extremely dynamic depending upon the lighting.

Unfortunately, I am not going to wear these new guys until next Wednesday, as I have a large meeting tomorrow and these are not a fit for the suit that I am going to wear tomorrow.

 

Have a great night all!

This is just the regular ptb in cigar from theshoemart. I had b.nelson add the eyelets and the dainite.
