Why do I know a stranger's shoe collection so well?

Agreed.  I do, however, find the modified last to be more comfortable than the barrie.

I'd prefer shell, but cannot seem to find a middle ground between ravello and cigar.. I'd settle for calf, but would prefer buying stateside.. won't split hairs over the sole, but leather would be first choice..

 

thanks in advance!

 

These are my recent acquisition from Alden DC -- Alpine Grain LWB on Commando Sole.  I love them and get lots of compliments.

 

 

Alden LWB, Barrie Last, Commando Sole. From Alden of DC.

Great post! It's so amazing when you find something that just works perfectly for you. Congrats on your Indy's. please share some pics.

My weekly PSA:

 

The Shoe Mart has a few pairs of Whiskey shell PTBs available, in sizes: 7, 8, 9.5, 10.5, 11, and 13.

 

Get 'em while you can, this is a rare shoe!

- I much prefer the finishing on the Alden.  They seem to have the process down perfectly where the shell leather is so smooth and unblemished.  It's also much shinier but that's not a big deal to me as I'm not a fan of mirror shines.

- As the pictures show, the Alden has much more of the eggplant coloring, which really stands out in a flash picture or in bright sunlight.  The AE's have more of a brown tinge to them.  I don't prefer one to the other; I like both.




I have various models in Alden's color 8 and various models in AE's burgundy shell. If I had to pick one, it would be color 8 hands down. But I definitely like both, for different reasons. In many ways I have a hard time comparing them as they are so very different. Color 8 has more purple hues, is dressier IMO, and is shinier by any objective standard. AE's burgundy is more muted, has some brown hues, and, IMO, is more casual.

I can't even remember the last time a retailer had whiskey PTBs in numerous sizes at one time. Mine, from TSM, in size 9D, are slated to arrive tomorrow. biggrin.gif

Yes - from this restock. Ordered on December 2 via website. I came upon the restock prior to Beeb's PSA.

Yes.  I ordered them 5 minutes before I posted my PSA.  Why?
