I have 10+ year old whiskey monks from ebay. I call them my ravello monks.

^ Really nice, Mike. I've become a big fan of Alden's chamois and reverse chamois.

From Tassels?

Ha. I saw these on IG and inquired about them. Didn't end up being too painful actually price wise. I was expecting it to be worse, but I got tagged with no duties.

For those interested in how Allen Edmonds chili edge dressing looks -- I just applied some on my Naval boots.  It's not a perfect match, but I think it still looks good.  The pictures were taken on different days, so the lighting is a little off in the second.

 

Here's a before and after:

Thanks, yeah neither had I. Tassels had one run done and that is all they are ever planning to do.

Thams, thanks looks like a decent match to me. I am going to stick with my Chili and Brown Shoe Polish for now though instead. :-)

Thanks Buda! My first endeavor into this unique material. Any care tips?

Gorgeous.

They make me want to break out my blue suede ones Indys and start wearing them again.

Curved thomas heel and double waterlock leather sole.

I am thinking about converting the soles to commando soles. The cobbler located in the local Alden store carries proprietary Alden shoe materials, so he can slap the real McCoys on there! I am also thinking about picking up a pair of 405s and doing the same thing. I'll do my own Ultimate Indy's smile.gif

Michigan! Those are very cool, I particularly like the tan stitching, but I couldn't get over the red brick sole myself.

FWIW, the red brick sole is hands-down the most comfortable sole I've ever had on any pair of Alden, but unlike the crepe which doesn't really draw your eye to it, the red brick definitely does. It's not an inconspicuous sole at all.

I've got a pair of Alpine grain LWB on the red brick that I am constantly debating either selling or getting resoled onto something else.

Coming in to my neck of the woods. Rainy and cold here today, with threats of snow tomorrow. Oconnels has a little stock left of Alden, its mainly crazy widths though. They are the only dealer around. They got some nice stock of menswear though, and are still worthy of a visit. Outside of them, dont expect much but your typically mallwear.
