For someone used to having to preorder and wait 6-24 months even if I want a standard makeup, this was incredible. Maybe these are from the SF preorder a year or two ago? The guy said whoever ordered them backed out of the deal. If it's one of you, thanks as I'm grateful I now have these whiskey shell Indys!

Anyone tried a shell cordovan candle yet?:

The "Cordovan" Candle takes it's scent notes from cordovan leather, a material we love to use in our shoes and accessories.

I do have a bit of room in Barrie but Tremont is just perfect. Any suggestions?

thanks

I wear a 8C in Barrie and TruBalance.  My 1494s are 8.5D.  The length of the 8.5 Leydon is right about the same for an 8 Barrie.  The suede chukkas though are NARROW.  So if you're foot is a bit on the narrow side, the 9D may be OK for you but your ideal size may be 9E.  The Tan Chukka rocks.  It goes with dark (indigo, grey) and light colored spring/summer pants really well.  My 2 cents.

Thanks for your feedback. I do have a bit of width + toe room in 8.5D in Barrie last so hopefully 9D in suede chukka on Leydon last will be fine. If not, back to TSM they go. For the price I paid I hope I can keep these satisfied.gif

That is kind of interesting.  I wonder if it really smells like cordovan.

 

I dont need one, my room already smells like cordovan and cedar.

I remember reading in another thread that these candles smell nothing new shoes. YMMV.

Thanks to all of you for the info on the Alden 1684 Monkstraps in Whiskey. Will update once they arrive!

I'm amazed at the Alden's I see posted daily, both in shell and other make ups. Keep posting that shoe porn!

See Ya,
Steve

FYI-it appears TSM got a few shell cordovan belts in. I snagged one in black today and have been looking for months.

See Ya,

See Ya,

I mentioned that the 1684 was one specific color because you had asked if others knew what colors the 1684 came in (which I took to mean you thought it came in various colors). But no matter - nice find!!

First day out with my #8 4060's.   Out of most of Aldens boots, this is one of my favorites.

 

This my second pair of Alden shells.  I can now say I fully understand how people get a big chubby over shell.  I am trying to ward shell sickness.

Interesting. Did you pick it up in store or call them up? Their website still lists them as out of stock. I would love to pick up a 35mm belt in color 8 if I could find it in stock somewhere.

I love my grant caps too. I try to wear them once a week. Mine however came with speed hooks. Where does one get a grant boot with 9 pairs of eyelets?

Found it on the TSM website. Was shocked. Almost broke my wrist whipping my credit card out of my pocket!
