OMG, I finally get it...  no wonder there are no shell make-ups in my size, they all go to San Diego!!  @MrDV gets one pair and @mdubs gets two of each, one to wear and one to photograph!  Ugh!

:paranoia:

Let me rephrase - the commando sole is Alden's best for wet weather. However, a lot of times we don't want to wear commando soles. When it comes to wet weather, I have noticed no difference between the double waterlock and the double leather sole. During the week, when I want to wear a shoe during wet weather I typically wear a 990, my RL Marlows or my 9016 (none of which have waterlock soles).

When it comes to single leather soles, I actually prefer the feel of the traditional single leather sole over the "flex" waterlock sole as it is more substantial in wet weather (for example, the 9016 is a better wet weather shoe, IMO, than the black unlined PTB i previously owned).

Does anybody recall what month Alden passes on a Price Increase. What do they go up usually? I thought about 8% but that seems stiff in today's deflationary commodity world.

Hot fire rtp, your boots are just perfect.
Mdubs is the shell whisperer, his boots are the Benjamin buttons of our thread.

I picture one arm to be of normal size and one to look like Popeye. Kind of like the Bruce banner and incredible hulk of shoe care

so I heard you alden folks love CHUP socks? Enabled by Mdubs, I see...

 

Jcrew has selected pairs for about $15 a pop. If you have the additional 10% code, it goes down to $13.50!

 

Anonymous ism  has some for about $18 a pair. By the way, I read that the marled  socks aren't that great, but the pattern ones are solid.

Usually January if I recall correctly.  8% is a bit much...  that would mean a $700 pair of shoes/boots would increase to $756.  It's probably more like 4-5% is my guess, but I could certainly be wrong.  I suppose we shall see...

Not a fan of the plaza last for shoes (with the exception of one make-up, the LS Semi-brogue in black shell -- looks like the AE Strand).  I considered the J Gilbert make-up (NST) on plaza and commando, but not interested.

However, the plaza last for boots are exceptional.

I too am not a huge fan of Plaza lasted shoes. fistbump.gif

But for boots, YES!! fing02[1].gif
