I'm 32 and my first pair was the whiskey LWB acquired a little over a year ago. I had about six pairs of Aldens earlier this year, but now I'm down to three. The one pair that I sold and somewhat regret is the color 8 dover from Leffot. I'll get those again I hope. Also looking forward to the ravello LWBs on the way.

me too. I want the unlined version with antique edge trim. When I was down at Leffot recently I pleaded with them to re-run it...they said they currently don't have any orders in but would put it on the list

So good...  Can't wait for the Day Trippers to drop any time now.  Maybe I'll give Leffot a call today to see if they've gotten a delivery date yet.

Boots = win

Pants even more.

I started my Alden addiction when I was 25 at one point I had 19. The hard things for me was not wearing all of them all of the time, and also having overlapped styles. I may have a boot and ptb or wingtip in the same color. I could not mentally justify having both, or if a pair sat in the closet and was only worn 4-5 times a year I sold it.

pretty sure those are made by AE, not Alden

I have been looking for a pair as well. Leffot was the only place that had one correct?

Yeah, these are amazing as always!!! I really like this particular color and pattern.
I have to say, that I am with Smoothie. I dig the PTB and Chukkas, but the Plain Toe Boot is outside of my taste preference. Even in this killer Ravello color. But that is good, as there is one less person to compete with for them! Who knows, my tastes grow and change over time.

Yeah it's a bit too much creasing for me but casual boot so I live with it

Thanks, though I do wish I went for daytripper over plain toe now. Killer Epaulet trousers as well

@mrdv +1 on the boot and pant combo. Are those rivet chinos that you put a crease in?
