Yep lol, my Paypal is ready to go for the payment on the Leffot Tanker preorder but at this rate I doubt that money is going to be in there for long.

Hi fellow Alden lovers, I recently received a pair of white Bucks from Alden NYC and as you can see, not all the suede is perfectly smooth. Is this to be expected?  Thank you in advance for thoughts here..I'm new to suede and just want to make sure I'm not paying this much for something under par..

They look absolutely fine.  Use a suede brush, or the equivalent, to raise the nap and even it out.  Otherwise, if you aren't happy, return them. Also, it's worth considering some Saphir Invulner for some protection.

Your Whiskey looks amazing. Well done.

I am 0 for 3 on the recent whiskey sighting...nothing available in the Bigfoot sizing!

 

Hope everyone is having a great week!

 

See Ya,

Steve

I didn't know BB sold LWBs.

Both of those pairs are sick, BK. Well done!

Those Whiskey shortwings are great. I had a pair but ultimately parted with them. They will be a bit formal for casual wear and never what I grabbed when dressing a bit more formal.

Jim at Alden SF was nice enough to offer to ship via USPS. Had I went with the standard UPS, I guessed I would have had to pay maybe over another $100+ for them at delivery. Very great service in case any Canadians are looking at shopping there.

 

 

 

 

 

Similar to the pair I recently received from Alden SF, this batch seems to have a greenish tint relative to my other pairs of Whiskey.

 

Has anyone experienced this before, or is it new to this color?  Seems that the greenish tone lost by Cigar migrated over to this batch...

Has anyone ever heard of or seen an Indy boot on a crepe sole? I believe The Bureaux Balfast (?) did one in suede but I'm wondering about make ups in any of the smooth leathers... I would think of it as an obvious choice and maybe fairly popular

Yes, sometimes whiskey comes with a greenish tint. Honestly, I like shoes that come with the greenish tint because they seem lighter in color than other batches.  Just get some tan cordovan polish from Alden.  Using said polish and serious brushing will cause the color to turn pure whiskey- great color.
