Gentlemen-I got to use my deer bone on my shell cordovan and overall I like the results. I will say my deer bone has a few rough spots to avoid touching the hide or it will make new scuffs, other than that it works very well at working out wrinkles and lighter spots. Still working on best method to cover entire shoe, some ways using circular motion, others kinda sawing motion with the edge of the bone. I can say it's a learned process, and I got better as I tried different ways.

See Ya,
Steve

I've so far only purchased a few shoes from AE and Meermin. I am considering either the boots below for my next shoe or the AE Dalton. Can someone please tell me more info about this wingtip boot? What's the name of the boot? Is this shell cordovan? How much does it go for? Does it ever go on sale for a significant discount? How can I order a pair? I tried searching this thread for some answers but there are just too many posts for me to sift through.

 

 

I believe it's the same as this: http://aldenshop.com/Store/DrawProducts.aspx?CategoryID=155&ParentID=94&PageID=&Action=

 

But if anyone can chime in I'd appreciate it. $700 for a pair of boots is a steep price for me so if there are any potential sales I'd like to hear. Thanks.

That particular one looks like it may be on the Plaza last, which is harder to find.  Not sure who sells that, but I'm sure others on the thread will know for sure.  I suspect Alden of Carmel or J Gilbert, but that is just my best guess.

 

There is a more common version on the Barrie last:

 

Which might be easier to find.

 

The Shoe Mart

Alden of SF has size 11

Alden Madison

 

to name a few...

 

I'm sure someone else will chime in with some others.

 

Probably won't find it on sale.  At this point, you should feel fortunate to find one in your size.

 

Good Luck

 

Edit:  Yes that IS shell cordovan.  Expect to pay almost $800 $700 (wow, thats actually not bad compared to what I'm used to lately)

 

Also, it looks like Alden of Carmel does have a couple versions (various last/sole combinations) in a few sizes.  They have a very strict return policy, so you better know your size if you are going to try to order from them.

I contacted Alden Of Carmen and was able to order a pair of those Barrie lasted Wingtip Boots in #8 Shell. They are expecting delivery in May. I paid $685.

J Gilbert, as of a couple of weeks ago, is accepting preorders for their Plaza lasted version of the Wingtip Boots w/Commando Sole. I was quoted a price of $725 and they are expecting delivery in Fall/Winter.

My first picture post.

I had a nice spot picked out, but the rain has changed my plans, so you get the parking lot at work.

Alden DC Unlined #8 PTB, saw the forcast for today, so doubled up on the Leather Defender last night.



And now for a question; I want to add a pair of blue shoes to the rotation, I have the basics, a black captoe, #8 Long Wings, #8 PTB (pictured above), Suede PTB, and a Suede Chucka.

I am a TTS E width. Alden DC has the Blue CXL Long Wing, but they only did D widths, so I could go up a half size and get by, but Leather Sole has the Blue Suede Short wing coming in my size. Do I get the Blue CXL in a slightly off size (that still mostly works) or the suede??

Stoopid double post!
post #49632 of 78922

I'm planning to order the unlined penny in snuff suede and comparing prices. Do you guys know if Need Supply's version is snuff suede? They are calling it "tan", but it doesn't look at all like the tan suede I've seen in pics of tan suede loafers, chukkas and ptbs.

Thanks for any help you guys can offer!

Though I love CXL I have been less than impressed with the blue CXL I have seen (only pictures). On the other hand I have never seen an Alden blue suede I have not wanted. Blue suede short wings or long wings are on my shortlist.
