Happy Friday. Cheers.

I think it is the unlined aspect that makes the unlined dovers fit more snugly, not the dover pattern itself.  (So the lined ones won't be as snug as the unlined counterpart.)

Finally, I brushed them again and then buffed them.

 

Sadly, their new owner, of whom they will actually fit, will be taking them on today. But, I know that they will be in great hands (or feet, whatever).

 

Have an awesome Friday fellow Alden aficionados.

My friend,

you need to develop an application for adoption/acquisition process to ensure that the new proud parents will care for your children as well as you have!  They are beautiful; if they were  10D I might have applied!

^^ If I were Dubs, I'd have an open adoption so I could visit them on occasion.

The only version I've seen readily available is the one from AoC on commando.  Great shoe, highly recommend!:slayer:

BTW, the ravello SWB is my quintessential grail... far greater than any color 4 make-up or other rare shell boots or shoes.:nodding:

(but that may just be me)

[Edit: I just realized that I mistakenly saw your whiskey balmorals as ravello shortwing bluchers; my bad, but still a great shoe]

These look stunning. Probably the perfect derby shoe for me.

 

I was told by an SA many months ago that these would come in around June. I kept asking about them and every SA said I had heard wrong; the first SA had said these were stuck at the warehouse, but nobody could confirm this. Now, I see them in stock.

 

Will have to try them on today and grab a pair if they look/feel good.

 

Side note:

 

I am considering a natty cxl shoe/boot. Options:

 

1) Alden PTB

2) Alden Indy

3) Viberg Derby (current MTO)

 

Thoughts?

 

I love my Viberg black cxl boot--construction is top notch--but the Viberg Derby is easily 30% more money than the Alden options.

Really worth it to spend that much more for just a natty cxl pair?
