***The official Alden thread *** - Page 2849
Thanks. I actually replied earlier saying I managed to find it (it only shows up under the dedicated preorder -> alden preorder page, unlike some of the other makeups available for preorder) but my posts are slow to appear and this last post didn't appear at all. In any case, thanks for the head's up! my pre-order is in!
It completely goes against my initial Alden shell acquisition plan -- namely, to not double up on a style before having one each in #8, cigar, ravello, and whiskey -- but lately I'm filled with a strong desire to get the PTB shell rainbow (including black, even). I love the LHS, LWB, cap toe boots, and so on, but there's something about the PTB. I probably won't do it, but I'm tempted.
I felt the same way about the LWB... whiskey is all that's missing for me, but I decided to go with the wt bal to mix it up a little. Pics coming...
I think I've seen the LWB collection pics you've posted in the past RTP. What is your favorite LWB, or how would you rank them? Or, is that like picking a favorite child?
Thanks... they are the Black Pct boot from Moulded shoe on the Modified Last. I had them resoled by Nick at B. Nelson shoes to duplicate as close as possible the RRL Madison boot sold at the Grand Opening of the London RRL store...I think they came out pretty good...
