Looking forward to it!

 

I have eyed that model numerous times, but was unsure how I'd feel about it once it turned gold.  Also a voice inside my head told me that I already have enough versions of the Tassel.

 

One thing to note, is that when leather soles soak up water, they become soft and consequently wear much faster while they are wet.

Bakes, the patina is what I'm most looking forward to. I've seen some natty cxl turn grey-ish (display pair of brixton boots in store at epaulet, a few weeks ago), which is much more worrisome to me

Interesting, I think I would prefer the greyish.  Maybe it has to do with brushing/not brushing?  I defer to El Argentino, as our unofficial  resident authority on natty cxl patina development.

I am making a move into mocha kid suede. Alden hq says it really does come from goats. I think it looks sharper than the regular stuff. Do have some C&J and EG calf suede.

Big for me, since I have about 30 pairs of shells. But I bought some tassel moccasins at Brooks and am hooked. NST's from NRO (fingers crossed) are coming. Would like some UPL's, PTB's, chukkas, and other models. Any suggestions for suppliers?

I thought the Mocha Kid Tassels were one of the only, if not only, Kid Suede models Alden makes.  The rest is some other suede variety.  No?

Looking great. I wore the same today. And with the Nano spray from Leffot, I wasn't the least bit worried when the rain stared to come down today in Gotham city.

NRO shows a plaza-lasted loafer in addition to NST's. It's a dynamite leather; I'm hoping there's more.

imo, pay no mind to stampings. grab what you like when you find it in your size, as it may not come around for another year or two rotflmao.gif

Excellent advice indeed. Much appreciated. Thanks.

First time posting in the wild shots, no idea if this works... Choco suede chukkas, braving the slight mist of NYC this evening. Cab shot

Haha, good guess but it's actually from Fight Club. I just substituted the word dildo with dick.

This page has various models in dark brown suede, but as far as I can tell only the aberdeen tassel and plaza loafer are designated as mocha kid suede. Kid suede comes from a goat, typically a young goat.

This is what I thought of at first too, but I knew it wasn't the right reference. Still hilarious:
