These arrived at Leather Soul right after I ordered mine from AoC. I wish mine had an antique edge (though I do like the commando sole on mine).
Good to see Alden's dark brown suede getting a bit more recognition, for a while we only saw snuff, tan and maybe some navy
These are awesome. I'm kicking myself for not ordering a pair at the same time I ordered my tan suede longwings from LS. I asked to be placed on a list for the next time they order these, which could be a looooong time. It's not just rare shell that has long waits nowadays.
thank you. i do love the dark suede and antique edge.
Ah makes sense. I've seen the brass eyelets on several Jcrew models now including the recent alpine grain captoe. Looks nice.
