nephew, looking good!

Does anyone know any good cobblers in Philly? I need to get my shoes topied and toe taps but I'm reading a lot of horror stories on yelp. You would think there would be more tailors/cobblers in Rittenhouse/center city. I don't want to take my Alden shells to just anyone...but I also dont want to pay $50 per pair by sending them to B.nelson (maybe for my resoles though).

nephew, thank you, black is not appreciated; however, the advantage being the black models are very available

Guys, PLEASE tell me this is not typical of Alden quality control...



Right foot stitching is about half inch off. Anyway, second pair is on order with fingers crossed. Not a good start toward my first Alden.

I'm sorry that is so bad its actually funny. lol8[1].gif Normally I think people are a little OTT with the Alden nitpicking when they receive their new shoes but that is just plain awful lol8[1].giflol8[1].giflol8[1].gif

The one one the right is sewn like the michigan boot is sewn and has nice even arch wink.gif. I wonder if the person sewing just changed models they were working on. But yep got past QC

When you find one, let me know! I'm in Conshohocken and can't find anyone to trust, especially with exotic shell.

B. Nelson may have to be the answer.
