I'd say jump on it for 270.  They are often hard to find at all.  Do you happen to know what other colors they have in stock?

It's pretty amazing how much difference welt selection and color can make a boot look. The dark edge, flat welt and leather sole on these may make these among the sleekest Aldens I have (boot or shoe) despite the fact it is in barrie last. I would not hesitate to wear these with a suit.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

The tankers I have coming from Leffot later this year will be more casual option (antique edge, commando sole)

I was opposed to blind eyelets on this style, but this made me change my mind. Thanks for the pic.

 

On a side note, anyone know when Color 8 Indy is due to ship from J. Gilbert?

Oh guys. Lord knows I've tried. First shell ordered - cigar LWB from Alden SF. I wanted to get a PTB at first (the only Aldens I have now are natural CXL longwings), but my size went out of stock, while I was numbly refreshing the page. Is this the beginning of the end (of my wallet)?

$270 is steep. I recommend getting the brooks brothers burgundy shell belt. The burgundy is somewhere in between #8 and cigar and after just a handful of wears, you'll begin to see the belt lightening up. I've had mine for about 1.5 years and it now looks more brown than #8. Paid $90 for mine during the holiday season

I have a few shell Barrie Lasted models that have no storm welt (e.g., Ravello SWB; Cigar NST). They are noticeably sleeker than my Barrie's with the storm welt, such as PTBs and LWBs. You are correct this boot is quite dressy. Looks good. nod[1].gif

Again, I'm not really that upset, Yenni is going to contact Alden early this coming week and see what the options are. I still have nothing but praise for J. Gilbert. 

Yenni is first-class, and wonderful to work with.

^ Whiskey shortwing looked great with the light brown edge trim. Definitely made a couple passes at it before I left.

Another interesting note: Alden definitely applies a layer of color to all of its shell which explains why Alden shell is so easy to maintain compared to C&J and carmina. There was a pair of black shell monk straps that looked like a charcoal/olive green when held just right. The change looks to have been caused by long periods of sun exposure

Superglue works just fine. A proper adhesive cement will work too. I have removed and installed heel pads (with foam below) numerous times.
