With who?

Yeah I had two Indy boots then got anatomica ravello and color 4 wingtip boots. Also almost got day trippers but held off on phone. Funny how it works out, beginners luck I guess

This is a cross post from the suede thread, but since it deals with Alden, I'm asking it here as well:

Provided I take proper care of a pair of Alden suede long wings, is the leather durable enough to allow the shoes to go through Alden's restoration program or will they be too junked up so as not to make restoration worthwhile?

I knew shell certainly is, but I'd rather buy a less expensive pair of suede shoes if I can't have them resoled 1-2 times.

Thanks.

Lots of good tips. One more I'll add is be prepared to pull the trigger right away if something pops up. If you hesitate then someone else will swoop in and buy them. I've been able to purchase a ravello LWB and Alden of DC cigar captoe boot off of B&S and a cigar indy from J. Gilbert this way. Good luck.

nephew,
looking well in your cap toe boot

+1

 

Straight tips - color 8 and black cordovan - were my first Alden bought more than 20 years ago.  They both have been resoled twice and reheeled many times and fit and look fantastic.  they are my first choice for business wear.
