One must have a shiny distraction before revealing the pumpkin argyles.

I had ordered those (if they're the #8 lwb with crepe sole) and they're beautiful in person. The soles on mine came murdered out, which was nice, as it almost looked like a normal leather sole but much more comfortable.

I'm looking forward to getting a new pair in tomorrow though without the stain on the cordovan.

Regarding horses, I have not had any per se but have eaten grilled zebra in Nairobi.

Would zebra shell be rarer than #4?

I'm sure they're wonderful. I doubt Alden makes an awful piece of footwear.

I added this link to the Alden FAQ (http://www.styleforum.net/t/85589/the-official-alden-thread/40515#post_6030645)

We should add a couple of things to the FAQ if anyone wants to contribute:

1) Photos of all of the different sole options
2) Photos of the different edge trim options
3) Maybe a list of things to check when you get new Aldens, typical flaws, which ones are normal, which ones are deal breakers

Anything else? Feel free to PM because this thread moves fast I might miss it.

First time posting on the Alden thread. I just received my new cigar indys, I've been staring at them for about an hour now. I wear a size 8d would the 6-8 or 8-10 shoe trees work best does it even matter. I know my Edward green trees are lasted but I don't believe the Aldens are? Considering the drastic differences in lasts I can't see how the same pair of trees could work with say Aberdeen and Barrie, just my .02.
