Thanks for clarifying the source on the last guide.  I shouldn't be surprised that it came from an SF member.  You guys are on top of things.  My thanks as well to REguy.  I will edit the previous post to reflect the source attribution.

Curious as to what % (or ratio) everyone's shoe inventory consists of Alden?
post #24993 of 98704
It may be general knowledge already, but Brooks Brothers is having a sale this weekend --- spend over $500 and get $100 off. I picked up a pair of unlined LHS in Color 8 for $498.

Dumb question, is there any difference between the Jcrew Alden Cordovan Chukka (dark burgandy, is that the color 8?) and the "normal" Alden one color 8?

No, there is no difference its the stock #8 chukka that most retailers carry.

A little less than half (about 10 pairs total). I don't see myself buying another pair of Alden for a long time. I do want a pair of Snuff Chukkas, but I can wait for that.

Other makes consist of Carmina, C&J, Tricker's, and Alfred Sargent.

About half. I keep a pretty meager collection of shoes...

Alden x j crew shell cordovan #8 longwings
Alden x j crew waxed tan longwings
Alden cordovan pebble grain boots
Alden natural plain-toe shoes
(just got rid of a pair of alden x leffot navy nubuck brogue boots)

F+B taupe nubuck 745 boots
F+B dark brown Bolan workboots
White's semi-dress boots in tan & distressed tan roughout
Wolverine 1000 mile boots in black (pretty banged-up - my go-tos for yard work)
Florsheim x duckie brown suede (can't even remember the last time I wore these tho... want to replace with a pair of Aldens)

Number9dream - Thanks for the tip regarding the Brooks Brothers sale. I put in an order for a pair of LHS color 8's as well. With tax it was a bit more than you said but still a good deal.

The code is SPWE12 and it's good for
$200 off $800
$100 off $500
$50 off $300

Do Alden still make the Brooks Bros cordovan penny loafer?

Cheers.

I agree with you 100%. I wanted to order a pair, but I have no love for the commando sole on shoes. I can understand boots, but it think it ruins a good looking shoe to have the rubber on the sole.

I don't believe Alden of Carmel ever had the Ravello Longwing Blucher on the Commando Sole. It sounds like they are going from Crepe to double leather.
