I use boot trees on my Truebalance boots, split toe tree for the Modified last shoes/boots, and full toe trees for the remaining.

Fenway, where did you find that star tag? The bag and boots look great together. I love that about my chestnut SB briefcase and Indys.

Sup SWD. This is like my 4th lifetime post on this side of the pond.

So, Im clueless about Alden and where to kop - obviously I want the least expensive prices around. Any dealers I should know about? Shoe Mart is looking too expensive.

^ wowowowowow, the spoomeister. here?

Alden is hard to find on sale especially if there is a specific model you are after. the best value for Aldens is found on the shoe mart seconds emails list. Shell is $400 and calf is $300

call the shoe mart and ask to be put on their seconds list which comes out about every 4 months. not as good as they used to be but you can discover a few gems

another option thats worked for some (myself included) is getting news of an imminent sale at either brooks bros. or J Crew and planning accordingly. Usually they remove aldens when a sale goes online, but if you place a pair in your cart the night before you may get lucky.

Time for some new soles. Thinking about going with some Vibram chunkiness.

I rarely find my shoes get soaked but they will get a little wet walking around and I will make sure to dry them before wearing them again (always give me shoes 24 hours in shoe trees anyway). Am I just throwing money away or getting stuck with a summer shoe here?

I live in Seattle and wear my unlined chukkas all the time. I find that I can easily wear these at least 6 months out of the year. I like my suede with a little wear though.

And when they get dirty:

Great looking briefcase and boots.

 

 

 

Is it their chestnut color breifcase, and is it their large size as well?

Yes, Saddleback's large BC in chestnut.

The star is simply a key chain from J Crew

North River Outfitter used to have 20% or 25% off sales that included Aldens, but they may have wised up as now almost all sales exclude them. And, their service is spotty at best, and downright horrible at worst, so sometimes the sales were barely worth it.
