The 994 (color 8) and 993 (black shell) are probably the sleekest Barrie models Alden makes - due primarily to the fact that they have a closed heel (270 welt), single leather soul, and a flat welt. I own them both, with no regrets.

however, it looks like it's not actually cigar, but color 8. I think this is a second from the recent leffot run:


I can't see any defect at all. I think I'll be keeping these

what's the model number?

ACTs... HA
Agreed. My favorite style, period.

The NST is a wonderful style for shoes and boots.

The 975 is Alden's stock color 8 LWB. Yours are color 8. By the way, nice score. nod[1].gif

Wear in good health my man, the finish looks pristine!

Of course you should have gotten both.  Like saying a baby should drink Momma's milk.  Sheesh!

Kiss ass only in the best of health.
No, seriously. If you have the sniffles or something, don't pucker up.

My wife is definitely not a fan of the monk straps.
