Awesome, my friend... enjoy often and in great health, your cigar gunboats!
Was in Alden SF yesterday and they have some cigar LWBs...not sure which sizes other than 7.5D though. They also had some unlined loden chukkas on sale for about $350; again, not sure of available sizes.
Can anyone explain the difference in suede nap between different colors of Alden suede loafers? My navy suede loafers feel more like nubuck, while my brown suede loafers have a very high, soft nap that can even appear two different shades when laying different directions. Personally, I would like a softer, nappier navy suede.
The snuff tassels look amazing. I tossed and turned over whether to snag a pair. I went with the lined PTB in brown suede. Absolutely love this shoe...
I may have to hit the BB store again for the tassels.
This is incredible... four pairs of new Aldens in three weeks, and not one is shell... never would have thunk it!
Don't they have a bigger, better sale coming up? As I recall, sometime around now is when they typically have a big sale and then, eventually, that sale with a kicker. Picked up a Golden Fleece suit priced at $2000 for around $850 or so last year. Maybe the discount on shoes wasn't quite so big.
I thought it was pretty significant, 30% off. Most of Alden's calf/suede offerings were going for around $350.
I really like the Natty Chrmxl and snuff suede tassels (two pairs of shoes, not a combination of the two ).
I guess I'll wait and see for more savings (or spending)!
