Has anyone else noticed that the Whiskey, Ravello, and Cigar LWBs have been removed from the Alden-of-Carmel page?

Old picture of my medallion tips. These are soon headed to BNelson for a JR resole with natural edge, I am considering the JR soles and Topys with the recessed metal toe plate. Suggestions regarding JR + Topy?

Very nice patina on those shoes. B Nelson can do a Vibram with recessed plate that looks pleasing. Check this AAAC post.

Also agree that this is an unacceptable condition for a new boot.  They should do something for you.

Agreed, these are $700 boots.  This kind of stuff really ticks me off, even when it happens to someone else.

The cigar is much darker than the chukka version I tried on recently but going to wait for the sun to be out tomorrow to judge the color.

The boots did come with a bit of a demur. I have attached a pic. Do you guys believe this is something I could buff out? Or no?

nephew,
i would sent back

Sorry, I am going to weigh in on the other side from what's been said above. It's unfortunate that such a beautiful pair of boots arrived with that scratch, but it's really a minor surface scuff. From the photo, it looks like it is just the wax on the surface of the shoe and will be almost gone with five minutes of brushing.

If you don't feel like you want to keep them with the scratch, however, then just return them. Personally, I would not ask the retailer for a price adjustment because of it -- nor do I think the retailer should give you one. It looks like a scratch caused by one of the little brass bobbles that come on the dust bags, and easily could have happened during shipping (and thus could not have been seen by the retailer before shipping).

Would you topy them too Uncle Mac? or maybe Double sole? I've seen pics where you've done that with natural sole edge on some of your shells.

Those look great. I'm not brave enough to wear my shell in less than perfect weather.

Not sure I agree [with the previous post].  That scratch may not be that easy to remove.  Even if one does not expect the retailer to find the scratch, the retailer should accept that a request for a refund or an exchange is certainly reasonable.  Even if the little brass bobble caused the scratch, why should the consumer have to accept the manufacturer's poor planning and packaging?  If you're paying $700+ for a pair of shoes, there's no way you should be expected to bite the bullet.

+2. I'm far from being picky. A minor scuff here or there is fine. I don't expect my shoes to come 100% flawless, but even that would bother me. If you're paying good money for shoes and/or boots that should last for years if not decades, you should be happy with the product.
