I think LS lost Cleverly no? I agree on the JL plum.

Just capitalism at its finest. A true patriot, folks.

The same seller has a pair of used CXL boots for $1,000.

They may have lost Cleverley. I am not sure.

I wonder if the issue with LS is that they had too many styles? Back in the day, it seems like they had dozens of different variations of Alden shoes. Nowadays, Alden seems to have streamlined what they can sell to retailers a bit.


This is the stuff that aggravates me most about LS. I have been emailing that place for a year now about those Choco Tankers, and every time I am told they do not have a list and are not sure on when a restock is coming. Just be straight up with me. I'm a big boy, I have heard the word no. Just say "We don't like you, you haven't spent enough here, so you cant buy from us."

Anything for some rare shell. Even better if it's not my size.

These are awesome! I have them from Moulded in Choco Suede. They fit so well. Where is this snuff makeup from? Moulded as well I assume because of the last?

Meh. Mike is the coolest and most humble guy in this thread. He plays things down and not for show, but actually because he enjoys the hobby and wants everyone else to enjoy it too. In reality he's got every reason to brag with some of his amazing Alden scores. So it may not have been luck, but I can't think of many people who would do it as gracefully as mdubs.

Nice cigars, Mike.

Your C width has me thinking I'm not properly sized. I'm starting to wonder if I'm actually a C width and not D. I'm stuck somewhere between both on the bannock, maybe a little closer to 10 D (9.5D Barrie). I feel like the Modified last fits so much better and the Barrie D feels so wide and clunky. Is that normal? Any suggestions in the Philadlehia area to try on c width? Sherman Brothers?

Thanks! Yep, they are from Moulded. I'm a EEE width so my in-stock choices are always limited/non-existent, but Moulded had the snuff cap toe in my clown size, so I jumped on them.

As for shoe trees, I've always just used regular shoe trees in my modified last shoes.

Most certainly not luck. Initiative, effort and clinical execution built on solid relationship building. Well earned keep for sure.

@chrisefi and others, thank you very much sir! I do have a strong passion for high end shoes, particularly for this Massachusetts based company named Alden. I greatly enjoy contributing photos of Alden's to the community, predominantly because I find the internet lacking on pictures of Aldens (and I enjoy it!)

 

I probably put more effort into purchasing shoes than the average person... I try to inquire enough with the stores to be in touch, but not too much to be pestering. I hope that I have found the proper balance... But sometimes, it does come down to being at the right place at the right time. I do find it very useful and practical to establish a relationship with a store, as they may actually think of you when a jewel pops up...

 

-Mike

I could not agree with that, more. I just love messing with him.
