I am starting to prefer agatine eyelets instead of blind eyelets on these boots...

And as a practical matter, they lace up (and un-lace) way more more easily and evenly with one pull...no need to do it in stages.

I think the cigar color would be just as useful. I often see people post their NST shell shoes in here and get very tempted each time I see a pair. I think the NST is a love it or hate it type of shoe/boot though.

I think the Tanker Boot looks awesome. If I would have known in time, I certainly would have gotten in  on the pre-order on Leffot.

 

 

Great looking boot.

At 10am, Canada Post tracking said my Day Trippers were on the truck for delivery. I probably won't get 'em until tomorrow. Fucking Canada Post.

Holy crap! That Stronghold CXL/Natural CXL LWB someone posted pics of is $695 clams. Bless their hearts if customers are willing to pay that.

Alden pricing is starting to jump the shark.
post #37553 of 79126

So I just bought my first pair of Aldens, the jcrew #8 PCT in 8.5 (usually a 9 in dress shoes/boots). What should I buy to take care of them?

Alden is going to SERIOUSLY have to step up their QC if they want to venture into the $700 territory. they aren't even 50% off the quality/attention to detail as a similarly priced english shoe (purchased in england, forget exchange rates).

Problem is, they know that they don't have to because assholes like us keep on snatching them up.

sort of but eventually they'll disenfranchise the american buyer because their volume won't change... they're still super rare outside of the U.S. and the japanese/swedes/europeans generally will pay far more.

i also use saphir cordovan cream every third time or so. it's not necessary, per se, but i like it. not a fan of the wax at all.
