I have more Alden suede than shell right now, although in admittedly small quantities (3 to 2). But I do have 3 shell pre-orders going so that balance will shift when those come in. I am always on the lookout for good suede makeups from Alden, I think it's just as good as their shell, depending on your individual tastes and wardrobe needs.

I never handled Alden suede. My one and only attempt to purchase suede at the $299 price point got canceled from a recent sale.

 

How does Alden suede compare to Carmina, AS, and maybe even Vass?

A big thanks to the 7.5D guys who passed on the recent DC Ravello LWB, also to the enablers haha. I emailed this past Saturday to get added to the next run, after seeing the pics that were posted I couldn't help myself. Kathy emailed back saying a few people passed and that if I wanted to I could have a pair now. I confirmed payment on Monday and they are shipping out today, should be here in hopefully a week or so.

Wearing my Tankers today and I am blown away by the color of Alden #8, whatever special overdye juice they put on them is amazing. I am smitten with the color and will have to now really keep my eye out for the #8 Leffot Dover preorder when it comes around.

Whiskey shortwing Bals with BB argyles and J Crew Oxford cloth sky blue pants

Tom's (from Alden SF) patina on his pair were inspiring; as I always say, wear and enjoy often in great health my friends!
Great looking combo RTP.

Thanks Spiff! I need to try some colorful laces at some point.

But none of them makes shell as shiny as Alden's shell. So it's a give or take, depending on preference. Exclusivity drives a lot of demand as well. 

Carmina's shell quality lags significantly behind Alden, C&J, and Vass. Not a fan of Carmina's lasts either. I think Vass and C&J's price points are a little higher, although in a year or two that probably won't be so.

Carmina use Horween I thought? Are there different grades of Horween shell?

I asked this a week or so ago but didn't get any feedback …

I'm taking a Mediterranean cruise next year and need a great pair of walking shoes (maybe 2 smile.gif ) … to pair with odd trousers, jackets and the occasional casual suit. Anyone have any experience with the welterweight w/rubber sole? Also looking at the Snuff Dover (mostly because I just want them), but not sure about the leather sole for walking around the streets of the Riviera. Thinking about keeping to a plain toe. Any thoughts?

Today…
