That's just silly. Whoever buys those at that price should have all other decision making privileges revoked...suspended at least.

Yes the secondary market is interesting. I think some are asking full retail on lightly used rare colors here. Makes you wonder .. I'd probably take a grand for my new Whiskey LWB in the most popular 9. Why not? Then again.. I love that model .. It's a staple for warm weather markets .. More so than say .. the East Coast. RL gets $1200 for Shell boots and $850 for Oxfords, Tassel, Penny. The Shell market seems pretty fluid. The rare colors are commanding more denaro .. Back to the game sorry.. Alden thread.. Ahh

Alden has a much higher profit margin on calf shoes. The difference in material cost is very significant between calf and shell. A single piece of shell retails for more than $100, depending on size. For the same money, one can get a couple full hides of quality calf, sufficient for half a dozen pairs of shoes.

Retailers take on a percentage off retail, so the opposite holds.

I've had terrible luck trying to sell my Alden's. I have attempted to cell new cigar under asking and the only buyer was from China so too risky. I've also tried to sell like new shell with only a handful of wears at 200+ below cost and had 0 luck. Besides here and eBay, any other suggestions? Perhaps a high end consignment shop??

They will than notify you when they come in and charge that card on file at that time.

I have never seen anything hit my cards until they ship. But maybe it's because I have been to the store a few times and bought from them many times. Not sure. But that is nothing to fret.

Mac Attack, those Snuffs look flawless.

Alcibiades, those look terrific! I am waiting for the JGilbert Black Shell NST Boot to confirm.

Waiting for those old alden #8 captoes to arrive decided to try antiquing the edge on the old shell hanovers. Good practice for the real game.




After sanding and polish and edge dressing





Not horrible

Nice job.

Pay close attention to keeping the heels consistent.

Wonder how many of these are getting made. Also curious if anybody knows anything more about the DC Ravello captoe boots. (DC Trippers?)
