Before they used to be a top offerer of unique shell offerings, which I have seen a lot less of the past two years. The Alden branded stores, TSM, Leffot, etc seem to be doing better on that front.

I talked to Tom and they expect more shell to arrive next year. However, it sounds like they won't be sending out exotic shell by mail anymore.

This is a pretty attractive black boot with a light or natural welt:

Ordered that boot - it is outstanding casual boot. Can not wait to get it.

Not Aldens and not quite a natural welt or as sleek as the Viberg's but a good price and they will satify my "need" for a tough, black book. Plus i got in early at 10% off, so $495 for Chromexcel.

My original point a couple of pages back was simply that I wish Alden offered it as an option. Everyone has their own aesthetic preferences, but really, who cares? I want to clarify that I'm talking about a natural welt specifically on a 6-inch black shell boot (I agree it would be silly for an oxford). Obviously you wouldn't wear such a boot with your suit and tie - I'm a grad student so I pretty much wear whatever I want. I want plain toe black shells by Alden with natural or at least some sort of contrast.

 

Something like this but in shell: 

 

 

Edit: I'm pretty sure LS did in fact offer a black shell boot with contrast welt but I can't find the pic anymore.

I'd been holding out for a black tanker in cxl or lady calf, but havent come across one lately. The shop Lost and Found, in Canada, did a one as well as the LS version, but neither seem to be in the works for restocks. Hence me jumping on a pair of White's. Although those Viberg's are super versatile. They could dressed up or down, in my opinion.

 

The Black Tanker on commando with antique edge is a great looking boot.

Leather Sole. I emailed them and they basically said "never again."

Ha. Sounds about right. 

 

I cant believe a boot as clean and simple would be put in the "never again" section. Black shell, plain toe, single leather. Seems simple enough. Timeless looking.

The Cigar Pitt boot is one of my favorite boots of all time.  I would jump on a pair so fast if they ever came up in my size.

A cigar Pitt boot would be great! Some of the recent-ish cigar could pass for black shell in certain light.

What last is it on? All eyes?

I do like these but don't get why they are over $700 in Calf?
