Disagree. PTB presents a cleaner look with less stitching/overlapped leather. It is also not ubiquitous (just look at all of those square toed silly Aldo/whatever-other-mall-brand most men wear: they're all dovers).
But, if it is Alden to Alden comparo...well...to each his own.post #73355 of 1224162/12/14 at 4:14pmpost #73356 of 1224162/12/14 at 4:15pmpost #73357 of 1224162/12/14 at 4:28pmpost #73358 of 1224162/12/14 at 4:37pmpost #73359 of 1224162/12/14 at 4:40pmQuote:
If you have information on how Alden finishes their shell or know someone who does, please share. I would love to know how they distinguish their shell finishing from everyone else in the business.post #73360 of 1224162/12/14 at 4:54pmpost #73361 of 1224162/12/14 at 5:35pmQuote:

I have never used Saphir so I can't speak for it. I do own a bottle of Venetian. Periodically after reading posts here I will go to it. Nevertheless, it never fails to underwhelm me. I just recently applied it to a new pair of AE shell Randolph full straps and feel that it did very little to improve the shine. I have seen pictures here of the Shaphir Reno results and they always appear dramatic. I intend to pick up some Reno.
I have both and if used proper and just part of the Mac method I find Venetian far better. Now with AE shell I always find it hard to shine till strip off enough of the cream they seem lathered up withpost #73364 of 1224162/12/14 at 6:00pmpost #73365 of 1224162/12/14 at 6:13pmQuote:
