I happen to disagree with you. Alden was already selling every pair if shoes that can make yet they chose to build a relationship with J Crew. I see this as a conscious move by Alden to expand their customer base and expand

Not sure what "special flower" means. Finally, are you saying I should move on to other brands because I'm too picky, or because Aldens are plagued by such imperfections?
Suggests based on what knowledge? To me it looks like it was part of the shell.

There are brands that you can go to that would meet your needs. Such as EG or Rider Boot Co. nod[1].gif

It is great to meet someone who knows so much. Can you tell me how much they have expanded the amount of employees or the facilities?

Rider stopped making cordovan shoes (or that's what he told me last time I saw him and talked to him). Too much trouble getting shell from Horween.

Last I checked j Gilbert had rider boots in a whiskey cordovan may have been produced before he decided to stop doing business with horween.

I was simply speculating that straight lines are less common in nature.
