Beautiful boots Mac.
I may find a magic lamp one day, I'd like to know where from and how old?

I posted a video of the old AE shell finishing in a long wing when I was selling a pair. I have some leeds that were a special order to get the old finishing as I preferred it. They look identical.

If you wish, I can try to photograph my #8 alden shell (only have LWB) next to the older AE shell, but new offerings are different.

If I could get my hands on these, I would forget the fact that they aren't boots and my Alden journey would probably be over. Someday.

True statement, in that it is much more similar than it used to be. Some batches of AE's old burgundy were very very brown..

First try on at the office but so far the fit feels similar.  The unlined are lighter so feel like slippers.  These are not far behind in comfort.

Fit feels the same as Shell

As nice as those cigar Captoes were, from Alden DC.... I just got a call for an 8.5 and had to pass on them. There may be a pair available. Just throwing it out there.
