^^^Agreed.  Those are stunning for sure.

 

MrDV,

 

How long have you been collecting Alden's if you don't mind me asking?

 

Thanks!

Cigar PTB to start the year. 

Well done, may I ask where you bought these? TSM?

Low key King Chukka day in the office. I end up loosening the laces when sitting. Stashing them into the to polish pile tonight after seeing that gem from MrDV.

WT boots on the plaza, especially in the darker shell colors, are so sweet.
Thank you for the kind words gentlemen.
Rtp, dumb luck and irresponsible aggressiveness.

Welp, no cigar LWB's left at TSM. Went to order and non luck.

Finally got around to calling CitiShoes, real cool guys there. They knew Mike well. :)

 

Got put on this list for the next go round of the grain tanker, due in roughly 6 months time.

 

Got put on the list as well for an olive suede tanker. Dunno if Ill pick it up, put asked them to give me a shout anyways.

Was so close many times to grabbing the sage's from Leffot, that I figured what the heck.

They still have 6E, 10.5D, and 11D in Cigar and 11D in Whiskey. Easiest way to find it is to find the 975 (Color 8 LWB) and then just switch colors.

I dont know any other 10.5's.

They said you were very knowledgeable with Alden and a pleasure to talk shoes with.

Ha, yeah, they found me entertaining. They were probably disturbed how much about Alden's I have learned over the past few years. It actually surprises me that vendors don't follow one another's designs. I don't think I know of a shop that really tracks designs that others are running.

Late to the party as well with this but here goes:

 

2014 Acquisitions:

Leffot #8 Naval Boot

LS Choco Suede Tankers

DC Commando Trippers

Cigar Chukka's

Epaulet Innsbruck Indy

Unionmade reverse chamois NST- Leather Soul

Brown CXL wingtip with commando sole

Snuff Suede wingtip with commando sole

JCrew Natural CXL captoe with commando sole

Need Supply Grain Indy

Need Supply Suede Indy with commando sole

 

2015 things already in the pipeline:

Alden Madison - Ravello Wingtips

Citishoes - Alpine Grain Tankers

Epaulet - Navy Tankers

TSM - Ravello NST on Aberdeen

 

Things I hope to acquire realistically:

Cigar Indy's - preferably with leather soul (on the list with TSM)

Leffot Color 8 Tankers

DC Cigar Captoes

 

Dreams:

Whiskey NST boot on Commando

 

Im sure I will end up with plenty more shoes not on this list. Been debating the black Walter boot from Leffot if it comes around again as well. I like the antique edge if its gonna be black.

Whaaaaah? This is possible???

No, one would need to go to BNelson. Alden will only restore them to the specs in which they left the factory. They USED to do this though.
