Nearly had these in hand on sale for $475 at AoDC a few years ago. Unfortunately the size was one width off; broke my heart.  Well done Uncle.  They look spectacular!

All of our "preppy" talk yesterday inspired me today.  I'm with you DonL (and everyone else that went with the 986)...

Who wants to start a petition for a #8 LHS with antique edge trim? I have been trying to get Leffot to run it for a few years

RTP, the halcyon days of youth are often remembered fondly and are hard to give up completely. Great looking penny loafers sir. Those pants would look stellar on the links.

At least the first group...
It is therapeutic.

Sorry, I have to jump in and provide a slight clarification. Alden has their standard single and double leather soles which are oak tanned. They also have the oil soaked soles which provide superior wet weather performance. I have heard that they are a pidge softer than the standard oak tanned soles. The single oil soaked sole is known as the "flex sole" or typically called the "flex welt". The double oil soaked sole is known as the "double Waterlock" sole.

Other than that slight clarification, my friend speaks the truth. Alden applies a small layer of cork for comfort under the insole prior to attaching the outsole. And the oil soaked soles are still made of leather and if you like Toppy's, this may or may not cause you to rethink that practice.
