The Cigar LWB from Alden NY and the Context Tanker...

Cheers,
BN

First outside wearing of my whiskey LWB. I'm really loving the whiskey color. Pants are really that shade of blue so no enhancement smile.gif

I'm gonna break these in inside the house for a week so to take some stiffness out of the leather sole but honestly pretty comfy already. Any thoughts or experiences on flush metal toe taps? Am considering to prolong the life of the leather sole, likely with B Nelson. Thanks in advance.

1) Is it true that SF Alden and NY Alden use a different color welt on the cigar lwb?

2) What type of welt is that? reverse welt/ wheeling in natural color? The contrast looks pretty neat

Amazing shoes. I got a pair coming from SF Alden.
The welt on this shoe is light antique, I *believe* the SF LWB come with Dark Antique, I also believe both come on the same 360 double waterlock welt, but somebody here can correct me if I'm mistaken.

Best Regards,

Why does ravello seem to be more rare than whiskey nowadays? Seems to me like whiskey would show blemishes more easily than the darker ravello..

more surprising to me is why Cigar is not a stock offering. I think it hide just as much as #8 so I am unsure why it wouldn't be more readily available. AE does not seem to have an issue sourcing brown shell

I believe it is a choice by Alden to limit it, not a sourcing problem.

Snuff dovers for me on this crisp Spring morning. One of my all time Alden favorites!!!

Nice Snuff Dovers! I hope to add something like this to my summer rotation some day! I may sell my AE Snuff Amoks for these, they seem more practical than a Chukka.

A closer picture would be nice, but I am assuming they are the Perf Tip Boot that JCrew sells. A very nice boot. I just got the Cap Toe boot from DC, so I think I have that basis covered.

I wasn't sure on the Hampton last, but really like the look and they feel great.....the humus suede is a bit darker than expected but I think these will get a lot of wear.

Nice NST shoes! What color are they? Have more of a gray tone than typical Snuff (see above).

Absolutely beautiful Whiskey LWBs. The Whiskey LWB is a close second place to my Ravello LWBs. :-)

I have asked this question many times and I am right there with you Ryden! No clue what makes Cigar "Rare", particularly with the darker colors they are shipping in today.

Looking great you all!

Funny.  I have thought the same thing as you guys about why cigar isn't stock.  It doesn't seem THAT much different from color 8 and other darker shell out today.  

 

Also, Ravello (LWBs in particular) has moved to the top of my wish list.  Please keep me posted if and when someone does another run of these.  I'm expecting it to be a while. : )

^ In the past Alden limiting supply seemed to be the case, but even Carmina is not taking new shell orders now...just give me the Grant cigar boot and I'll be happy for awhile.

They are called "humus" on the Leathersoul website.
 
Definitely a darker, brownish/grey color.....no orange tone like snuff which I have and like very much.....I do think they are lighter than the brown/chocolate suede though.....I am very pleased with the color.
 
Also, the Hampton last seems to be a great fit for me.

Also, I take that this is a whiskey and cigar shell?

They are the very first Alden Fan shoe from Alden of Carmel and made in 1996. Aberdeen last. Whiskey shell body with mahogany shell saddle.

Right on. AoC's pic and commentary below.
