A Little Cigar
To get things back on track - here is a comparison of the Cigar Cap Toes and the recent LWB, the color is pretty consistent across the two lots
While I am not the Alden fanboy you are, I do own 5 pairs of Aldens with two on the way in the coming months. For the price, yes I expect better QC.
But I am also not the type who gets sucked into hype. Unlike some in this thread, when I walk down the street wearing on my Aldens, I don't think about how I have Aldens on my feet every other second while simultaneously trying to hold in my joy and smile due to me knowing I am a person of greater caliber than Isaac Newton for the simple fact my feet are enclosed by glorious Alden shoes.
I am done in this thread. I am taking my ball and going home.
