I don't even think you're joking. The last two rounds, the lwb and tanker boots (I think) went really,really quick. I think it was less than 2 minutes for some common sizes. 

 

Since I can't checkout orders in less than 30 seconds, my best bet is to get on the DC waiting list. That is, if they even one have for the color 8 dovers.

I'm fairly OCD and I realize this is Alden QC being what it is... but they have at least another boot in my size. Is this enough to try an exchange or should I just live with it? This is my 4th Alden purchase and the first time encountering something that I think would continue to bother me...

As you have said it would bother you, just exchange another pair.

Though I really doubt the next pair would be perfect......

I would call Kathy. She probably has them in stock in standard sizes. I could be wrong though.

Not looking for perfection... as I mentioned above, this is my 4th pair of Aldens and they all have their quirks, but this one finally got me. Noted though that I could be going overboard on this point (or at least it's reasonably permissable as an Alden first).

Just perused a bunch of Alden wingtip boot photos though and only saw one out of a dozen that seemed to be this off, so I'll go ahead and do an exchange.

Unionmade usually does color 8 Dovers with darker edging. Usually.

They do some good makeups. Their current Dover is a "Jasper," though with antique.

Sigh. If anyone doesn't want their Unionmade dover in 9D, PM me.

RK, welcome back my friend! Your NSTs look great... however, I thought the Cigar NSTs were made on the barrie.  Yours certainly look to be Aberdeen.  Where did you get them?

Great to see your return...

post #83595 of 122416
Haven't been able to find a definitive answer looking through the forum, so hoping someone here can help.

Someone mentioned to me that they think the Alden tassel loafer in calfskin is made on a different last to the shell cordovan version? It's common knowledge that the shell version is on the Aberdeen last, but is there any truth to what I've been told?
