It's one of the best models Alden makes.

A reasoanble question, and one I will leave for others to answer.

But there are some - myself included - that prefer other colors to color 4.

Yea I think it's scarcity makes for it's desirability much more so than it's color.

I'm very new to this, I know what color 8 looks like, but need some help with color 4.

My first pair of Aldens,  I had to share.    Plain old brown Chromexcel but I love them already.   Hopefully adding to the collection soon.

Nice start! Watch out though it can become a sickness. I know I started in earnest about a month ago, and am already, very ill.

 Timing is everything-gotta catch it at the beginning of Credit Card month!  However it's been a stretch for the last several months since I got the shell bug!

 

See Ya,

P.S.-you think my wife will notice 7 new pairs of shoes in the closet?

Dear Alden-aficionados,

 

I'm looking to jump into the wonderful world of Aldens. I don't really own any nice dress shoes and would like to try and find the most versatile pair for casual to business-casual wear. Something to pair with some cuffed N&F denim and Epaulet Rivets. I'm rarely in a suit jacket, and the dressiest I get up for is the occasional wedding or work dinner. The office environment is very laid back (advertising) so not trying to go too far on the formal scale because I want to wear these often!

 

More of a blucher man, and the NST and LWB seem like the obvious choices. I'm a little torn on color and leather. This would be my first foray into higher-end footwear, but the way I see it, if I'm about to drop $500 on calf leather or CXL, I may as well try and nab some cordovan, right?

 

Seems like the popular colors are also in short supply (ravello, whiskey, cigar). Should I try and hold out for a restock or used pair of these, or stick to some brown CXL or calf? There's something about the shine of shell cordovan...

 

Thanks, friends.

Welcome to the Forum!  Holding out for restock in my opinion is not a good move.  The forecast for restock of shell cordovan in any color is bleak, but rare colors is pretty much not happening for the next 12 months or if ever.  Depending on your shoe size...your best bet is to call or email as many Alden stores as you can.  It's worked well for many of the forum members.  Check eBay too.  CXL and calf leather are great options too, but even those can be hard to find depending on your shoe size.  I'm sure others will have their tips too!

 

Good Luck.

 

See Ya,

Steve

Welcome! Did you see the CXL PTB that Epaulet and Need Supply got in today? I think that would be an extremely versatile shoe for you
