I'm beginning to become addicted. I started off with just the Cigar Indy boot last month, and now have the Whiskey LWB (they came in today from Alden SF)


Also just bought two black shells seconds from shoemart tonight (praying they turn out ok). 

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone here for all the great posts, and all the great info. I've been chasing the Daytrippers, or any Ravello Captoe Boot. So any leads would be huge. 

Does anyone know if Alden does the Wingtip Bal in Natural CXL or has a plain toe loafer in Natural CXL? I'm really digging the Natural CXL that has been posted. Anyways, its almost 3 am and I'm looking at Aldens online........ facepalm.gif

Anyway, that was just a last thought, since this is the Alden thread and I don't want to attract the Gestapo for talking about other brands. peepwall%5B1%5D.gif

nephew,

i personally think it is helpful and health to talk about other makers of quality calf and shell shoes
