You can still see the smooth contour of the toe box is completely in tact; there are no deep cuts or gashes.. it implies a very minor scuff that isn't penetrating at all from what I can see.

My bet is he'll end up with a two tone toe box if he follows your suggestion - the finish is gone and needs to be restored, all the polish in the world won't do that. My 2 cents.

I have the long since sold out #4/Black saddle bluchers in size 10D from Leathersoul that I am parting with. Worn exactly 3 times to the office, they are in pristine shape. Looking to get $500 or best offer and can circulate pics. PM me if interested.

RKD, tell me about it. None too happy. But you are right, someone else is going to luck out and I'd rather it be an Alden aficionado than some random Ebayer.

^^ just brush w/ a horsehair. eventually it will dissappear, and this is from my own experience.

How high up do you guys lace your boots? Does it make a difference to you if they have eyelets or speed hooks?

Thanks to all of you gentlemen who led me to the light and showed me that keeping the #4 WT boots was the way to go.

Here are a few shots from today's maiden voyage.
Notice how much different they look in the natural light (3rd pic, although a cloudy day here in NYC)

These pics have me seriously thinking about offloading my cigar 8.5D C&J for RL Marlow wingtips since they don't fit right. Anyone interested in trading an 8D or 8.5D Cigar LWB for them? PM me.

Did you just get them? If so, you can return them to RL. I think they are pretty good with returns. 

 

Just curious, what is the fit issue with them? I have a pair on order and I ordered the same size I wear in Barrie.

would anyone be interested in a pair of these in 11.5d http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-mens_chukka_boot_barrie_last_dark_brown_kuda/pvc-ald-mxsbc-1272s_ald_m_chukka_boot_barrie_last.html?

need to admit that they're too big frown.gif they're in ok condition. the lining was flawed and I had alden professionally replace it (not really noticable), and the uppers are slightly dirty and the soles are medium worn. would be real cheap like $175. wanna give this thread the first go around before i post to B&S
