(slowly acknowledging that the vamp on the right shoe is lighter than the left... good ol' Alden QC. But it only makes the pair more endearing)


I really wish those fit me! Looking good.

Bar none one of the top 3 shoes Alden has ever produced, if not the best. I lucked out and got my hands on a pair up here in Toronto a few years back.
Great looking shoe. Thats a keeper icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif.

Edit: Dont sweat the vamp issue. Like you said, in a way, it shoes that everything is hand crafted. My LHS has shade variations on the vamp too...Like anything (relationships, cars, houses) you'll find problems if you look hard enough.

IMO I would say no. If you are an 11c on those sleeker lasts I would think that 10.5 C or 11B would be more suited on the Modfied. Again, everyone's foot is different.

Plain toe boot #8 Modified. Taken indoor so it looks black.


Under moderate sunlight.


Up close

Been wanting to get some #8 PTB but they would look too similar to these boots so I haven't... Yet

its nice!!where you got the chukka?i want to get a pair

Izach, LHS stands for Leisure Hand Sewn, these are the loafers (hence leisure) and are hand sewn.

 

PTB stands for Plain Toe Blucher. As I understand it a blucher is an oxford where the laces don't tie together tightly and therefor the tongue is visible.
