The exposed eyelets and flat welt set them apart from the standard PTB.

Got any pics?  Also, where do I buy?  I just searched BrooksBrothers.com for Alden and got nothing.

HI fella's, new here. Long time lurker, just decided to post.

 

My small Alden footwear wardrobe.

 

 

The black suede's are my oldest pair at eleven years old, with the brown's being ten.

BB doesn't market them as Aldens explicitly-

TSM irregular list in my inbox this morning. At least for the 8.5-9 range, same shit as the last three lists.
post #37973 of 87374

11.5 and 12d lists arrived, considerably less than the previous lists. nothing worthwhile

post #37974 of 87374
Got the 9.5 and 10 list this morning. Nothing to write home about on the 9.5 list.

+1.  I love this shoe, and to me, it has less of a "security guard" look than the factory model 9901.  It is sleeker (M-58 last), cleaner (no storm welt), and the eyelet covers, while an acquired taste, are sweet.  I enjoy it so much that I got the Color 8 version also, and these are 2 of my favorite Aldens.

Still my Fav Boots. Indy Cordo Color 8s. BTW...props to Alden for some great service on these when I had a bit of an issue. JT

Ah, thanks.  I do like the eyelets, but I'm not seeing where they are any better, though $25 is trivial at this price point.  To me the Aldens look a little more...classic, or, for want of a better word, Alden-ish.  Having said that, does Brooks Brothers ever have any sales?

 

Also, seeing as I have an Alden store here in DC I think I'm going to get it straight from the source.

My TSM email in 10D has this style listed but a broken image. Curious if someone can tell me what it is?

I gotta disagree with you on the "security guard look" part.  The metal eyelets are definitely more "security guard"-ish than the 9901.
