Just a wild guess but I think Sacaphoto is talking about Carmina shell tankers.

No.  It is not happening (by Alden).  I was being a sarcastic dick trying to make a point.  I made a point but it was not the point I intended.  Lesson learned.

While your collection may not be the most extensive on this thread, not sure there is another collection I would prefer to have over yours.  Bravo, my friend! :slayer:

Hoping for some expert advice on various (some might say minute) differences between versions of the Alden 97873 - the LWB in Natural Chromexcel.

 

I feel in love with the Leffot version, long sold out, pictured here:

I love these and, although they're not available from Leffot, found versions from Alden Madison and elsewhere. That version, however, has a darker (I hope I'm using the correct term here) upper welt.

I realize it's a minor detail but - maybe this is just me - it gives the shoe a completely different look. I really want the lighter version a la Leffot.

 

It appears I've found that via the Bureau Belfast.

As best I can tell this is identical to the Leffot shoe. Would most of you with a keen eye agree? Furthermore, has anyone dealt with the Bureau Belfast? If so, positive experiences?

 

I realize this may seem a bit pedantic but I love the shoes and, well, this is a forum dedicated to great footwear. I suppose we're all a bit pedantic at times :)

 

Thanks in advance for any and all replies.

EDIT - Just realized the Bureau is selling in pounds and not Euros and therefore what became a reasonably costed import just became prohibitively expensive. Darn. I'm on Leffot's list should they rerun the CXLLWB but the sales associate I spoke with didn't seem to think that would be anytime soon.

 

Call either alden SF or DC.  Both carry this Natty Chrmxl LWB with natural welt (the light colored welt you're looking for).  I actually prefer the darker welt sold by TSM.  Good luck...
