Thanks.

I bought my first two shell Aldens at the same time and I purchased the Cigar LWB and the Ravello Wingtip Boot. I like the look of Ravello better but I find the cigar to be more versatile.

In other words....get both.

if there is doubt - there is not doubt.  My first pair of cordovan shoes i thought were a bit snug - said to myself they would stretch - and 3 years later that same pair sits in the back of my closet collecting dust.

How exactly did this Alden thread end up in the Streetwear and Denim portion of the forum instead of the Classic Menswear portion of the forum?

Uncle-you continue to amaze me with make-ups I've never seen.  Is this an MTO too?  Do you have any secrets on how you get a shine like this, other than the Mac Method we know about? Stunning come to mind!

 

See Ya,

Steve

I think the original thread starters were mainly looking at Alden for boots to wear with denim. Compared to Allen Edmonds, which is seen as a dress shoe company, more people do seem to wear Alden shoes casually. That said, a lot of people in this thread mainly wear Alden shoes with suits, chinos and wool pants, which would seem to be Men's Clothing.

You should really reconsider Color 8. It is the king of shell.
The exotics are appealing, yes, but Color 8 is the king..

Are there any care products that get resounding support for Aldens?

 

I have a pair of Chromexel 403's, and want to keep them up and possibly improve their waterproofness.

 

I feel like asking this question is the same as the "what oil should I use" question on automotive forums.

Alden San Fran uses and recommends this for Chromexcel -

Saphir Reno isn't the best for chromexcel, IMO. You need something more oily.

Thanks!

 

Are there any other shoe care supplies you all can recommend, while I'm at it?
