Hey Slam,

What size were the Aldens and what size were the Strands?
post #38823 of 87707
That's what I said until recently when I bought two pairs of boots on the modified - the boot really does wonders to mask the shape of the last.

However, my views are mellowing as I see some of the more recent make-ups which mask its banana-esque shape.

Totally agree.  I don't own any shoes on the modified, only boots.  But the pictures I've seen of shoes on the modified last didn't endear them to me at all.

I agree about the boots. I also saw a pair of saddles from a Japanese retailer that looked awesome compared to Barrie saddles.
post #38826 of 87707

I received my Alden/J.Crew #8 PCT boots a couple of weeks ago and am totally happy with them. The close heel and regular welt (not a storm welt) make them much sleeker than most Barrie makeups (well, as sleek as a Barrie can look anyway).  Then a few days ago, AE finally shipped me my replacement burgundy shell Daltons, which I really like as well. I wanted to share some comments and see if anyone has any feedback or could share their impressions if they have either of these.

 

- 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.

Thanks - I saw that pair myself, looks great. Still want to see if I can land the whole deal: cap-toe, medallion, black shell, boot. I recall seeing a picture of one in this thread (or what looked like it), maybe I'll spend the weekend sifting through it to find the poster!

It's not cheap but color to me definitely looks off.
Color on mine is pretty close to this photo:

Pretty automatous reply.  After all, he's not going to be wearing them at all.

wow I just received the most expensive cigar indys ever in the mail and I just learned that my feet were apparently molded to the trubalance last... this is the most amazing fit I've ever had on any article of clothing by miles . I want to cry. It is a seriously emotional moment for me.
