Aberdeen last



Yeeeeee

@NAMOR how do you like your black calf shortwing bluchers on aberdeen.  The tan versions have intrigued me for quite some time now, but I haven't nailed down my aberdeen sizing.  It tends to differ depending on the make-up.

 

I like the dual make-up look.  Almost slipped by my radar!

well i got my first pair of aldens.

been looking for a pair of PTB chromexcels

for months. i got lucky and picked up a alden

for crew one with the plantation sole.

 

was a bit hesitant with the plantation sole but it turned out

better than expected. so comfy and can't imagine this with a normal

sole. the chromexcel is very very versatile and can imagine this to

be a daily wearer.

 

some pics

 

 

pic beside my AE clark street chromexcel so you can compare

Spoon. Excellent pick up. From what I have seen the natural cxl ages really well. Enjoy!

thank you sir! i love them and have seen examples of well aged CXL.

one thing i notice is that the leather seems to scuff more than my other

pairs.

 

was feeding my shoes with conditioner and accidentally brushed it with my thumbnail.

you can imagine my reaction lol

Hey, I just sold a pair and walked back to my girlfriend with a wad of cash. She thought I sold drugs.

Another plus for Alden—retain value.

Oh, my bad.  Didn't know the shortwing blucher was made in black shell (I thought they were the 967).  Haven't seen that before; even better!

yeah hard to find new anymore. the combination of last and material is rare but still possible to locate on ebay with wear (if thats your thing)
