Yeah, I am a 4x4 fan as well. I have the color 8 version. Much sleeker than the dover.

Saphir's Brown cordovan cream works quite nicely on brown shell.
I seldom use Saphir's burgundy cordovan cream on Alden's color 8 (i seldom use anything), but I do use it on burgundy shell from other makers.
Saphir's black cordovan cream is, well, black. I use it from time to time.
Saphir's neutral cordovan cream is useful for any color, but it can darken some whiskeys.

Whoa. Incredible. What model is the Alden cap toe boot? Shell #4? Next shoe.

here is a before and after:

BEFORE:







AFTER:







In contrast to much newer #8

I am quite happy with the fit on these Tankers on Barrie, I was expecting a a more loose fit, but these are quit form fitting.  The feel of the short wings is on another level however.

Its also pretty funny to look at these shoes in the sun, it clearly illustrates why so many people freak out about the quality of the shell finish and matching panels...

Below is a quick comparison of some of my boots

PCT CXL Brown Boot - this is my winter boot that I wear with thick wool (winter) socks, this is a 10.5D Barrie

Context Tanker - 10D Barrie

Leffot Natural CXL Indy - 10D Truebalance

Hope this illustrates the differences a bit..

Best Regards,

Yeah, I'm "that guy" today. My way of blowing off steam is to violate all style rules. musicboohoo[1].gif

I've just acquired some Carmina ruby shell:




I don't suppose anyone out there has both this color and Alden's Colors 2 and/or 4?  I've been looking for a side-by-side comparison and coming up dry.

Hi gents, I'll be in SF next week and plan to visit Alden SF for the first time. Any tips on sales associates, models to ask for, etc...?

Also, any other stores I should try and hit in SF that would align with the man who calls himself an Alden shoe connoisseur?

Last time I checked, they had Alden Chukka in Loden for $350.

Thanks. They're Shoemart seconds (with B.Nelson resole). Not sure who they were made for. The closest match I could find were a Tassel's #8 Atom on Tremont. These are Barrie.

o.O well shit. What's the strategy here? Figure out my size beforehand and just check all the retailers? Why is this so hard!?
