someone please buy my size from LS before I can resist...

^^^ I had that boot and sold it. It's nice, but the plaza last and wingtip design clashed with the excessive wrinkling of CXL imo

PSA: BB has a 20% of your total purchase going on through tonight. Doesn't include shell cordovan, but other Alden make ups are included. Seriously thought about the snuff tassels, but decided to hold off for a future surprise shell offering. biggrin.gif

Is this a keeper or a return? This is a slightly better picture. Captoe boots are my fav, and ravello is my fav shell color. confused.gif


Mine had similar issues, I never considered returning them. It sucks losing the ooooooh factor when opening a pristine new pair of Alden shells but wear 'em a few times and you will be good to go.

Does anyone know offhand somewhere that still has stock of grain NST's?
I know there was somewhere else besides Unionmade. Just don't remember where.

These are beautiful. The marks are just character.

Thanks for the side by side. The chocolate suede is really dark and rich. Very nice boot, which will complement my Indy snuff. I dig the commando sole. Not sure I can resist...

Keep 'em and love 'em.  As others have said, you probably won't notice the spots as much with wear on them.  I'd keep them 100%.

I'd go with the practical shoe since that is what you seem to be needing based on what you've written the last couple of days.

 

 

I already ordered the short wings from TSM. Just waiting for them to ship. This is in addition to those. You're right about going with the practical shoe so I'll probably end up ordering the Leffot captoes tonight. Dress shoes get wasted on me since I'm mostly wearing chinos or dark jeans.

Seems this Leffot offering is quite unique and may be a while before we see some thing similar on Plaza. If my size is still around I hope to get a pair after the holidays.

 

 

So that being said, if you are an 8D, do not buy them haha

 

Alden DC had the cigar PTB in my size in stock. That's what got me thinking about them. I called to get their advice on the Plaza last sizing and Kathy started telling me about her makeups she has in the works. Then she checked my size and said she still had Cigar PTBs with antique edge in stock from this past summer. 8.5D in Barrie in case anyone was wondering.

Those look great. So many tempting offerings by Alden lately.

Agreed. I personally would have no issue with them.

So what size did Kathy recommend you for the plaza last?
