Yep, Goodyear welted so should be easy to have a different sole put on or the same one.

They only had the last listed pair by the time I called, and I bought them. I was really hoping for a pair of black shell monks in my size, though.

Hmmm. I didn't check out the last chart prior to ordering and now I'm hoping I didn't go a half-size too big with the Tremont. I was assuming they were TTS; guess I'll find out in a couple of days.

Agreed. They claim 10 working days from the date they are received but I have found it to be consistently longer. They also don't even update you that they have received them until they process the refund

Anyone know a good source for brushed nickel or silver buckles that are worthy a $400 piece of horse ass?

 

 

Robert Talbott buckles will match nice with the Horween belts.

 

Typical for those horse strap buckles to come with a custom Bridle Leather belt. Strap buckles are a 

 

Very English country look and not American business at all. Really your only buying the shell strap and the 450$ is a choice deal for single piece construction on a strap that will fit tons of great buckles. obviously I'm jelly

I think a mini lug sole like above or (flat sole)looks better than a full commando sole on Chukkas. Just my opinion.

 

That's a stock model... guessing any old Alden dealer can order it.  Model 1272S.

So like others on this thread, I don't like the buckle. Anyone know a good source for brushed nickel or silver buckles that are worthy a $400 piece of horse ass?

Interesting. I was thinking of going with a 7.5D in Van since I'm a true size 8, and I dont think the van has a huge heel cup like the aberdeen last?
