SFTG, send me some pics of those walnut PTB's!!! That's what I tried to order. I didn't know Dainite soles were an option.

NYDRH: This is my first post here but I am a consistent reader. I would have to say that Color 8 is perhaps the most versatile color I am aware of/own when it comes to leather, particularly shoes. I have yet to see it not pair well with anything I own from jeans to finer wool fabrics. Certain styles may or may not however move up and down the wardrobe chain as easily. I happen to think #8 LWBs and dark jeans looks f'n sharp, and I wear color 8 BB captoes with suits all the time. Take it for what its worth, just one mans' opinion but might be worth a revisit, and obviously much easier to put on your feet today.

Welcome.

Your sentiments are shared by many.

It is (I think) a little known fact that Dainite is an option for AE MTO's. Indeed, when I first requested it, I was told it was not an option and that AE doesn't use it. I then gently pointed out - by emailing a link - that indeed AE does:

http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF9963_1_40000000001_-1

I understand the above is the only model AE makes with Dainite.

I have since been told by the AE folks that mine was the first - and, at least for now, only - MTO model with Dainite.

I will follow up with you via PM. biggrin.gif

Good Hunting!

Good advice. I didn't know this. I would love to find whiskey, or even ravello, in shell. Have searched the web with no luck. I will try your approach.

Of course, Aldens - even the dark cordovans --  can be worn all year long.  I wore black cordovan PTBs yesterday in 93 degree/100% humidity heat and, the day before, cordovan captoe bluchers with a suit.  Conservative business days demand a certain kind of dress.  

 

But I felt hot and wilted just looking in the mirror.  Dressing with burgundy or black on your feet with dark colored pants does not do justice to summer. 

 

That is why Alden makes whiskey cordovan, burnished tan, and blue and tan suede shoes.  

 

Today I am wearing off-white suede Indy boots with tan pants and white shirt.  Aldens, but Summer Aldens. 

 

Let's see those when the weather is sizzling hot.

I'm not a big fan of either of those colors, and it seems impossible to get shell in the cigar, the ravello or the whiskey. I've called and checked with Alden in NYC, SF, and Epaulet and Leffot, but no one seems to have it.

 

If these are rare colors, how often approximately are they made? Is it like a yearly thing, or kinda random?

 

Thanks

Citishoes in NYC has some exotic cordovans in PTB, longwings, captoe balmorals and NSTs.

I'm intrigued by the Grant lasted wingtip bals. I wonder if this differs all that much from the look of the Hampton.

Everything else appears to be on the Barrie. mad.gif

Wore my new snuff suede flex-welts today.  They will take some getting used to.  I'm so used to wearing 1lb 10oz boots with lining and double leather soles that these feel like I have nothing on.  Almost "squishy" and insecure.  blush.gif  I think they will be super comfortable for lounging about but not for any heavy walking.
