Not defending the increase, but it is nice to buy something of increasing lasting value. While m computers keep dropping, my Cordovan chukkas from 2000 ($380) kee increasing! If it keeps Alden in business I am for it.

Wow, those look almost like Whiskey! They are definitely a lot lighter than my Ravello boots. Wonder if putting them in the sun will get them looking like that quicker? Anyone want to chime in?

If you're spending more than $100 on a pair of shoes then you're far closer to "rich dude..." than you think. They are well worth it but they are definitely a luxury good. Don't compare them to a Corolla, compare them to the Toyota Avalon. It's easy to lose perspective on a forum such as this but to 90% of people if you're spending $400+ (like I just did!) you've priced yourself into "rich dude...." territory. Especially if you do it more than once!

What would the forum's reccomendation be on pairing a belt with snuff suede. Do most people go with a matching snuff suede belt?

Predominently talking about when wearing snuff suede in a more formal setting (i.e. with a business suit).

I, like anyone else with eyes, love these and the've been sold out for awhile. People are practically crying on the blog for more. Any ideas where I can get something similar? Love the color on these.

I have a pair in 10D I've only worn a few times (the weather has been terrible). I'd be willing to sell to purchase another pair of shoes (been lusting after a pair of ravello boots recently). They are beautiful!

a 5% price increase really isn't a huge deal. alden employees alone might get paid get 3-4% more every year. I'm sure Horween has to pay their guys more, increasing materials cost, etc given the current situation where retailers can pre-charge 100% of a shoes cost for delivery in 8 months, they could probably increase a lot more than 5% and be fine. at least for certain models of course, who knows where demand will be for alden in 2 or 3 years

Question for the forum: If I am an 8.5 E in the Tru Balance, do you think I would be an 8.5 E in the Barrie last?

Any help is appreciated......
