Alden x Leffot CXL LWB today
post #78302 of 122416
Interesting data point - my plaza color 8 captoe boots didn't get a single bid (first time ever for me). If I can't sell a once worn Color 8 plaza boot for over $450, I may as well keep em...

APC are good, basic raw denim. I'll always have a pair in the rotation.

"Wow! Where and when did you get those? I love cigar.

Cigar SW and Ravello LWB or Indy/NST boot. Color 8 Dover."

That's my shell agenda.[/quote]

Those were an ebay score from last fall, they're a Leather Soul makeup from a few years ago.

They are indeed.  JGilbert make-up. 

I have resisted Chukka's but with the 6-eye's, Commando soles and the chocolate suede these broke my resistance.

Glad I did as they are a great fit for casual wear- super comfortable

Wow. That is one Chukka I really like! Maybe next batch.

I would agree with what others have said. If you are looking in that price range, you probably could pick up something from Japan Blue or Railcar. They're both slightly more expensive, but much nicer in my opinion. Keep in mind that a nice denim jean will last you for years, so I would say save up and buy a pair of Momotaros. They're my personal favorite brand, but going to be around $300 (totally worth it though).

Question to my Alden brothers,

I know there're tons of Denim threads but will like to hear Alden guys opinions , I've narrowed down my choices to APC or Unbranded for my 1st raw denim , I'd like to buy a 3sixteen later but for now don't want to spend more than $150 , I can get an APC for about $148 so difference between unbranded and APC is about 60.

Is the price difference worth it? Or are the Unbranded decent quality?

Also I'll wash them , I'm not into the don't wash it , at least not yet.

Sorry for the off topic question but since I'll wear them with Aldens and lots of you guys here wear raw Denim , I'll like to hear your thoughts.

Thanks.

I've been through so many iterations of denim. Best advice I could give is save your $ and get the 3Sixteens. APC stretched out like craaaaaaaaaaaaaazy and I couldn't wear them anymore. Buy some made-in-the-usa denim. 3Sixteen or Tellason are both very solid choices.

+1. I don't have 3Sixteen yet but they are definitely impressive. My mainstays are Real Japan Blues and RRL (had some awesome IronHearts but sold bc I sized them wrong). I think it's worthwhile to spend the extra $ if you wear jeans a lot.

I've thought about selling some boots as well, but will just wait for increased demand in the fall. And who knows how bad the "great shell shortage" will be by then.

I must be the exception to the "buy APCs tight because they stretch rule" because both pairs I've owned only eased a bit. They started off as tight when buttoned and always remained uncomfortable...and I wore them a lot. I've since only bought raw denim in sizes that fit comfortably from the start.

Since I am not an APC expert, are the jeans you bought unsanforized, and then shrunk to fit... or were they preshrunk... or didn't you shrink them at all? I am only curious, as I could see how this could have an effect on the stretching.

I imagine that you would also garner higher bids at that time of year.
