Yeah, the suede cap toe blucher is like that, and I pointed that out. I'll submit a question to the BB site and see if they'll confirm the manufacturer.

That's exactly what I did.

I own the suede captoe blucher. I used to own the brown calf PTB. I have discussed both models with Alden and Alden confirmed they make each model. nod[1].gif

Ha, if anyone would know, you would SFTG. You have essentially every shell Alden for BB model, if I recall.

he is incorrect indeed, but there is no point fighting it. ebay, sadly in this case, will side with the buyer.

please tell me more, i live up the street from blackbird. i once asked about why they were no longer carrying Alden's and the SA told me that long lead times were hard for them, and hinted that Alden favored larger clients (J Crew?) and were leaving smaller shops in the dark. it's a shame because they had some solid make ups. i don't doubt your story though, i get a weird vibe from the blackbird crew.

Having email confirmation from Alden that they indeed make said models would, I hope, convince ebay to side with the seller.

But note: The questions section for many of BB's shoes have misguided information. And most BB employees are clueless when it comes to their shoe offerings. I once had a rather comical conversation with a BB employee who tried to convince me their Black Fleece black shell LWB model ( no longer offered) was made in England. biggrin.gif
