Nothing like a new pair of Aldens.

 

Just got in some 405s:

 

 

 

 

Anyone bought from Need Supply?: http://needsupply.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=alden

 

They seemed to have had the best price on these, free shipping, and shipped out same day I ordered. I had them in 3 days. No sales tax either ;)

I spoken with Alden dc today to check on the status of the cigar cap toe order, basically I was told it wil be a while. The SA advised me about upcoming calf offerings but said that the cordovan shortage is all too real ugh.....it appears the price of shell on the secondary market will continue to increase. Pretty soon the gentleman who listed his chukkas above retail will actually have to sell them as they could be multiple offers above retail. Glad I picked up what I could while I could.

It's just because Mac is buying and hoarding them all.

I recently got a pair of boots from a retailer and they were clearly seconds being sold as brand new. It was not the retailers fault, Alden packaged and sent them as 1st quality. I called the retailer and the explanation was, "that's just Alden. No two pairs are alike. Each pair had some imperfection or something that makes them unique."

I have no objection to your post.

Just thought I'd throw in a few words ...

A good relationship with a retailer solves alot of problems. In other words, I have had retailers work with me to solve an issue even when Alden wouldn't work with them to solve said issue. In my experience, even though Aldens these days are in high demand, retailers (or at least the ones I regularly patronize) still value loyalty.

Grant last color 8 cap toe boots.  Fresh after the Mac Method.  Most definitely used SnapSeed for the edits.

Please note, alums, that there is still the time and place for massive, high-res, dslr shots as well.

But otherwise, carry on.

DocAlden, I'll run your file by the guys in the admissions office w/ a letter of recommendation.
These are beautiful. Great pant combo, good cuff, nice angles on the boots.

 

My color 8 boots after a shine session last fall. Poured on the contrast in post just for the El Argentino school of image editing biggrin.gif.

 

I am a fan of nicely saturated, heavy contrast images. It certainly has its place. Note, my attempt at mirror polishing the cap toe didn't last that long. I wanted to be able to dress them down. So after all that work, I applied a bit of renovateur and brushed them out. It removed just enough wax to reduce the mirror effect but still look sharp (IMO).

I wouldn't be surprised if another run of the LS cigar jumper boots were made before the Thor boot is made. What was the last time a group MTO order was actually produced? The whiksey Indy boots a few years ago?

I'm getting the weird sensation that someone is trying to make me call Kathy at Alden DC so she can put me on a Cigar boot wait list.

Everybody's got that carpeting. In three thousand years some alien will dig it up and confirm we were a bunch of morons.
