I just purchased Leffot Atom SW in Cigar. smile.gif No matter what it's a sweet make up that I could not miss.

On Tremont last I went with my Barrie size which is 8.5D. When I wear Barrie, I still have a bit of room so I hope it will work.

Unfortunately my brand new Whiskey LWB will have to go back to Alden SF. If anyone wants a pair and in Canada, just let me know and it's yours otherwise they are gone tomorrow.

I wouldn't if i were you...

I've posted this before. It's put a bad taste in my mouth when it comes to handing over my rare shell to the Alden recrafting program.

before



and after



I'd lose my mind! From a beautiful aged whiskey color to a terrible #6 color. The recraft is beautiful...the color...not so much

Me too. I like the color, but not unless those were sent in to be dyed. They look like a different pair of shoes, not the same pair of older shoes made to look like new.

I don't think Alden can ban sales, but they can enter into a Minimum Advertised Pricing agreement with their resellers.

I believe Teger asked a similar question.

 

I suggest calling the Alden factory, the vendor who sold you the shoes, or the Benjo's website.

If you read the context, he was asking about the Ralph Lauren Marlows going on sale.

You've always been correct.

Sorry for my emo post before. Just working through the guilt of indulging my shoe exuberance.

Please help me choose just one:

Whiskey or cigar lwb, both Barrie lasted.

I can only choose one for now. Please justify position based on versatility or complementarity with lwb collection that includes jcrew waxed brown, color 8 shell and snuff suede. Help!

Sadly there's no medication for this affliction of ours. smile.gif

I believe this is the correct way to pronounce it. Don't forget the horse effects.
