Yes, color 8. (was looking at the BB site, and used to AE as well) would have much rather they weren't the same color though. Last I checked there were some in my size, but not now. Guess the sales wiped them out.
No, the way that Alden's two width system work is that the first letter is the width at the heel of the shoe and the second number is the width at the widest part of the shoe (roughly 1/3 the way down from the front of the shoe). If you wanted to convert that to a single width number, such as the Alden for Brooks Brothers widths, you would simply use the second (bigger letter).
C/E = E width = Slightly Wide
B/D = D width = Standard Width
What sort of dover make-up are referring to?? Snuff suede, shell, brown chrmxl, etc.. ? I suppose you are talking about color 8?? Unionmade's color 8 on commando is not sold out yet and it isn't unlined like I'm guessing the SF version is.
Finally gave in and got on a list for a pair of Cigar LWB, they are waterlock soles and "antique edge" which will probably mean a little too light for me but my opinion may change once I see them in person. Cigar LWB with antique edge may actually be the perfect fit for my jeans and chinos wardrobe.
My collection will look like this by the end of the year:
#8 Leffot Tanker (on Preorder)
Cigar LWB (on Preorder)
Natural CXl PTB
I think it's a very rounded collection so far and I am excited for the preorders. Eventually I will find something in Ravello that is a must have (possibly a PTB...might have to keep my eye out)
Be careful, on August 30 that one powerhouse program comes to town, and you know, you guys really struggle with the "good" teams....
Warning: Spoiler You Can't Make This Up.... (Click to show)
In any case, we all know NO unemployed person can be here talking about this kind of money for footwear!
I wish Unionmade would restock the Natural CXL Dover or similarly someone else would do the makeup.
I would add that to my collection in a heartbeat.
I would just grab a PTB but I really want it to be a nice unlined summer shoe.
For those not following along... they hype that has recently attached itself to Alden shell has extended to Viberg shell.
The Brandy shell cordovan boots released at 12:00 PST (+/-) sold out in ~20-30 seconds online.
