Seriously. I think irregulars can be had for around $400. But if you're talking about normal sizes first quality....forget about it.

My first pair of Aldens were New whiskeys for 425 on ebay.

Just out of curiosity, how much do they go for on B&S/ ebay usually? I'm talking uncreased, no wear on the soles.

If its a cigar, ravello, or whiskey its pretty much retail. If you're lucky and wait and wait, maybe you'll get em for a few bucks less, but highly unlikely.

I recently purchased some used 975s. I noticed on my right pair on the outer side where the shoe flexes that there is a slight tear beginning. Can this be fixed and should I be concerned.

Sigh. Why do so many use Imageshack? They don't work!

I don't see a tear in these pics. If in doubt use a horsehair brush on the area in question. Cordovan is quite resilient.

In the first picture, it is to the right of where the shoe is flexed. The tear is very small but none the less a tear. Can I prevent it from getting larger and can I fill it in or anything?

Look what I stumbled upon in the West Village this weekend (total impulse buy) Ravello cordovan Tassel loafer on Aberdeen (sleekest Alden shoe IMO) Antique single (I believe) leather outsole

It used to work. I use another provider now but all of my older pics are on Imageshack.

You could always try the spoon trick.

you mean new? as in brand new? they don't usually sell for that much less than retail. even lightly used you should expect to pay $500 + if it's a sought after model
