I'd bet so. Seems like Alden likes to do things in batches so probably did a bunch of Navy suede at once.

but they are damn nice looking.
If you're going to go for suedes, why not get something with some character?

Yeah I don't wear blue nor suede much but figure it's a light summer shoe perfect for LA, lot of the others seemed lined. And pricing is $100 than leather soul with shipping, though I do like the shortwing too

I personally like the suede wingtips better. The PTB can have a tendency to look a bit like slippers, especially in the Barrie last. I prefer the unlined Chukkas the best though, which are Leydon last and looks more sleek which seems to fit suede better, IMO.

I very much agree with the wingtip comment, but not so much with the Leydon chukka.  I don't care for sleekness in a very casual shoe, but that's just me.

I think different shades of ravello on the same gunboats is pretty great. and ill say it again, I need that belt.

I know these aren't Alden's but these RL Marlows are fantastic, needed some brown shell since Alden is having a hard time getting me some Ravello..

Black shell is great. The shine is unmatched. Wore my black shell Alden for BB tassels today. A wonderful shoe. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The C&J for RL dark brown shell is very nice. I own the Marlow and Lindrick. My tassels are to arrive tomorrow. Picked them up the last day of the 25% off sale. nod[1].gif

This is my first Alden. Brown-calf wingtip boots with commando sole.
Since it's the first pair, i need to risk ordering same size as my other boots, it turns out perfect fit to me.
Let me save up for a while, i'll go for the Shell's.

Remember that different lasts fit very differently, so the same size in a different last may not fit the same at all.
