***The official Alden thread *** - Page 3644
Shipped from Hong Kong? The Chinese are finally doing something with all the Horween shell they bought.
Here you go:
Could be hoax... if the seller didn't like the price the boots were gonna go for in the last minute, it is possible an inside job was done to boost its value for auction at another time. Wouldn't be surprised if they're back on ebay at a later date. This is all speculation, but I don't believe this auction went down legitimately. On the other hand, I could be completely wrong...
If I want to get a pair of PTB primarily to wear with chinos and wool slacks would color #8 or cigar be better? I rarely wear suits and these would be worn only for business casual. At this point the only Aldens I have are longwings in calf and looking to start a small collection.
I personally prefer #8, but if you want to wear with light color chinos and some wool slacks I would say cigar.
If any of you wear barrie size 9D, rl_store has some great stuff in that size... PTB's (whiskey), Black shell LWBs, J Crew Perf Captoe Boots, Cigar chukkas, etc... You should check them out. Looks like rl_store is a great seller.
Happy hunting my friends!
