the one thing that seems to be a consistent complaint with the AE Amok is that they can tend to develop squeaking while walking.

Alden suede is nice. I have it in dark brown, mocha kid, and snuff. Never had problems with any of them.

I have found there are 3 options with Leydon: TTS (9.5D), TTS plus one width (9.5E), up half size (10D). I understand some retailers only stock Leydons in E width - the thinking being that the Leydon E is like a D.

yep, def. sounds about right to me. ;)

Am I the only one here who favors the SWB over the LWB?

The LWB is more of an Alden signature style, but if I had to pick just one, it would be the SWB. Alden doesn't make many of them though. LeatherSoul seems to be the only retailer to offer SWB on a consistent basis.

I'm not sure which I prefer, but I like them both.

Mine squeaked but then stopped .Kinda like a break in thing. They work out perfectly for me when I want a beater but still look nice

Thank you very much for sharing your pictures. Much Appreciate!


You're welcome.  Yes they are the same; aberdeen last and the model number is the same also (2145).

Thank you sir. I am but a knave to your sartorial splendidness. I'm also very jealous of your shell collection.
