Makes sense to wear your #8 PTBs with your 990th post. Assuming these are Aldens and not Alden x Brooks Brothers, your nailed the model number with your post count.


Astute observation!

Just saw your comment Sazon... didn't mean to steal your vocabulary.  I suspect you are a pretty sharp guy! wink.gif

I believe whenever TSM updates their stock, all their products go live (whether available or not), including the seconds. Idk if anyone received the seconds list via email, bc i sure didnt... maybe this week?
post #42844 of 87461
Anyone have any other insight into what TSM got in recently? It takes so long to click on every style, I really wish they would simply list what is in stock at the present time. It gets old clicking on ten different styles to be repeatedly rejected. I know of the ravello chukkas, feel free to add to my list of one.

Yeah I Reno and brushed it. Is this something I can go into Alden (SF) and they'll repair?

I agree. There were quite a few I've never seen on the Alden thread, and would not have considered purchasing if they were in my size -- and some still that I might not wear if they were free. There must be people out there who appreciate quality footwear, but whose taste is very different from most on this thread.

 

Alden still does a lot of shoes for the orthopedic market and I see a lot of those shoes making it to the seconds list. Odd looking to some of us, but comfort comes first and they are undoubtedly better than Rockports or some sneakers sold at a chiropractic office. Additionally I see a lot of the Japanese military last, indicating the breadth of that market. Japanese business in general are more open to experimentation, often preferring to make small experimental runs of products rather than spending years doing research before flooding the market with massive numbers, and I think that can be observed even in small fashion boutiques. Some Japanese Alden makeups may seem odd to us, but their Tricker's makeups are even wilder! I enjoy the Japanese attention to detail when it comes to shoes, workwear, and military wear, so even if I wouldn't wear a particular item I find it fascinating to listen to the reasoning and process behind producing it. My favorite Aldens are a pair of military influenced boots for Japanese retailer Beams that I snagged off the seconds list.

 

Just for fun:

Should I be concerned with the creasing so close to the base of the lasing?  I feel like they fit well, but I've never seen any of my shells crease in this spot.

 

the formality of the bal contrasts with the casualness of the leather shades perfectly imo . A beautiful shoe

Thank you!

Are those the Ravello LWB's? They look outstanding! Count yourself as one lucky man. Did you specifically request the antique heel and welt treatment?

Those are outstanding.  They look dark enough to be cigar.  I have the same ones (ravello) from DC.  The antique edge on my Cigar LWB is really what most distinguishes the Cigar from my Ravello LWB from DC; my favorite LWB... inlove.gif
