I think its an awesome boot, do wish it had the antique edging but for some reason that is not popular.
I have numerous styles from Unionmade. There styles are easy to acquire, decent priced and they have a relatively nice online site so you don't have to call. Call me crazy but making phone calls just inst my thing. This is the modern world and age of the internet.
I have talked to their new store though for 1 sale. Real nice guys working there who are willing to do just about anything to help you answer the questions and make the sale. Although, they are not real familiar with the Alden brand or at least at the new store they weren't. I don't mean that to be negative, I still would give all my experiences with them an A.post #80673 of 1224165/4/14 at 1:24pmQuote:
In a way I agree but in many I disagree.
You can wear the same pair of Alden's every day. You cant wear the same jeans everyday.
(Well I guess you could but I wouldn't recommend it if you like friends.)post #80674 of 1224165/4/14 at 1:26pmQuote:
that comment couldnt be further from the truth when talking about quality denimpost #80675 of 1224165/4/14 at 1:28pmQuote:
Agree about the antique edging. Pretty sure that's almost a "Leffot" thing now.
I do prefer the pct of the j crew boot but like the commando sole more.post #80676 of 1224165/4/14 at 1:37pmQuote:
I have plenty of quality pairs of jeans. Honestly it has turned into the majority of them folded in the closest unworn or alot sold on eBay.
I guess if you wear the same jeans everyday..... that we will have to agree to disagree on whether that is acceptable.
Once again thou all style is subjective. Certain groups of people think green mohawks are stylish. Not my thing, but I am not going to tell them its unacceptable or not stylish because to their group of friends it is.post #80677 of 1224165/4/14 at 2:19pmQuote:Originally Posted by Resistant
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Where are the cap toe boots without speed hooks? Alden Madison?
Keep an eye on Haberdash 4060 restocks as well (and like J Crew, occasional codes that apply to Alden). $500 for shell firsts feels more and more like a steal as many models creep over $700.post #80678 of 1224165/4/14 at 2:22pmThanks for the PSA thams, never saw them on Citishoes' site. Just ordered a pair.

PSA: I noticed this morning that Citishoes added #8 NST boots (Barrie) on commando to their inventory. I thought someone was recently asking where to snag a pair. Apologies if this is common knowledge, but I don't remember seeing them on their website the last time I checked.post #80679 of 1224165/4/14 at 2:24pmpost #80680 of 1224165/4/14 at 2:25pmpost #80681 of 1224165/4/14 at 2:32pmpost #80682 of 1224165/4/14 at 2:42pmpost #80683 of 1224165/4/14 at 3:29pmpost #80684 of 1224165/4/14 at 3:35pmpost #80685 of 1224165/4/14 at 4:04pmQuote:
I am on the exact opposite spectrum. 4-5 pairs of jeans is complete overstock for me. 4-5 pairs of shoes would not be nearly enough for me. I have plenty of pairs of denim that have been worn 5-6 days a week for over a year. While I probably could do that to a pair of shoes, I never would. That being said the life cycle of my $300 jeans is far less than my $700 shoes. However all of the same principles of how I value a shoe: quality of materials, craftsmanship, durability all apply equally to denim
