They are great. I live next to the Raleigh warehouse and can speak highly of their quality.

Great to hear :)

I was going to ask you how long it takes for them to chainstitch them, but I think you'd get a much different turn around time than me since you live so close!

Are their jeans button or zip fly?  (sorry for non-Alden related question, could not find the answer on their or any retailers website)

I picked up a pair of the Original Thin Fit about a year ago. Great denim, awesome detail but i just find them a little too baggy. Maybe should have sized down 1 to account for stretch. Also living in Canada I had to lose the beautiful chain stich when I got them hemmed. confused.gif

Very nice. I've come to appreciate commando soles over leather soles on boots.

I've seen the U-tip before, but i thought that referred to a reverse machine stitch that is single needle, versus the double needle on the indy/NST.

 

That is simply a hand-sewn apron, not a NST (Norwegian Split Toe).  The "U-Tip" (V-Tip?) Aldens that I have seen are also different construction.  Mr. Chorizo is correct that the construction of those is using a reverse machine stitch, and is actually bringing together 3 separate pieces of leather.  The apron on those is actually a "plug" that is sewn on using a machine stitch (see also the JM Weston Demi-Chasse, and various Allen Edmonds models like the Walton, Delray, and La Salle).  The Norwegian Split Toes, and hand-sewn apron models that Alden makes are simply a decorative stitch on what would otherwise be a plain toe shoe.  They have also made some Indy Shoes that look just like this, and it is the same stitching style used on the Indy Boots. Those are definitely beautiful shoes though!!!

Fantastic!

 

I'm 3 weeks away from six months wear on mine and can't wait to wash them for the first time.  They are awesome jeans.

Ok...so what does Alden call the style in question? As far as I know Alden does not call this a "hand-sewn apron" or "HSA".

This is from Leather Soul's page

"I’ve been wearing these cigar U-Tips twice a week for about 3 years now. I’ll be sending them in for restoration soon. I like the change in color they’ve gone through so I will make sure to tell Alden not to polish the uppers when they do the restoration.

I know LS is not the be all and end all, but I'm sure they know more about shoe designations than you or I...

But...i've been wrong many times before.

I didn't say in my post that those are not U-Tips.  I was addressing Mr. Chorizo's comment that the V-Tips are made using a machine stitching technique using separate pieces of leather, as seen in the photo you posted above.  The gentleman that I quoted and addressed in my response seemed to be asking if these were a NST without the middle seam.  I also didn't say that Alden calls them "HSA."  I was simply stating that they are hand-sewn aprons, which seems to disqualify them from being V-Tips based on previously cited examples.  I don't know what Alden calls them, and if Leather Soul calls them U-Tips then I wouldn't see any reason to argue with it.  It is a u-shaped apron after all.
