+1. I've got them in black. They're ridiculously comfortable.

Looking good hiding those eggs in your cordovan indy's. I did the same today but had to go with a pair of vans for my egg hiding adventure. I was at the beach though which is where i have to draw the line for wearing aldens......nod[1].gif

I saw those in Leffot last week and had to try really hard not to buy them impulsively. Awesome shoes in real life. Nice score.

if by wishlisted you mean a product that has a delivery date further out than normal shipping.. all 4 pair of Aldens purchased from them have arrived earlier than quoted.. I remember reading somewhere that the CEO of Jcrew admits that they would prefer to quote a date and then exceed expectation by delivering earlier.

I had the opposite experience. Mine were delayed once (by a week) and then shipped later than the delayed date (by another week). I guess that even J. Crew doesn't have the magical ability to get Alden to deliver on time.

Still a cool illusion though.


Thanks for posting it.

The term "Gunboats" is not unique to Alden and LWBs all have the same basic characteristics - the picture makes sense in that context. If you use your imagination and look at your the shoes top down, they will have the appearance of gunboats. In size, character, shape and weight. Big, heavy, distinctive brogues. Hence the term "Gunboats".

The beauty of Ravello PTB today. A few things to note:

1. These shoes got some water spots over a year ago that still will not come out ! Stubborn. You can see them in the pic.
2. The mismatch in the shell shades is quite evident in this light.
3. My ankles aren't as big as this picture makes them look!

Do you guys think $585 plus shipping is a bit steep for a CXL perforated cap toe in brown CXL with modified last from Moulded Shoe?
post #47338 of 99294
It is expensive. There's a premium for the modified last from Moulded and it is a small shop, so must feel they can't afford free shipping. To can certainly find a CXL boot for less, I'd think.

Banana Republic to start carrying the 990 & 975 thus creating a shortage even with #8!











Only on this thread can we communicate using numbers.

I called after a few months of getting my Natty ones to see if they had the black left in my size...nope.
