Everything about it is creepy. From his constant crotch fondling to dirty carpet - it's all awful.

These look great and I think they will serve me well for their intended daily, casual usage.

 

 

 

So the question to the Alden folks.... between the Natty CXL and the Brown CXL, what would you vote for a casual daily shoe to be worn dark selvedge denim the majority of the time?  I already have a pair of Alden Dark Brown CXL Indy boot... so I have been thinking more about the Natty CXL.  But tifosi's pix of the Brown CXL has me rethinking that choice....

As much as I love natural CXL (and I really do), I still find myself preferring brown. I could still find a place for the brown PTB and the brown Indys in my stable. Are you thinking LWB or PTB?

Good question.  I was leaning towards the Natty LWB that Epaulet was offering... because it came in the Leydon last and I was looking for a narrower last than Barrie.  However one part of the description says it is Leydon and another part says it is Barrie.  I guess I'll shoot them an email.

 

Anyhow, the Brown PTB definitely looks sharp so that is definitely why I am tempted....

I really like LWB, but I already have quite a few pair of wingtips. I wanted something cleaner and simpler for daily use. The brown PTB ticked all the boxes.

 

I have a feeling the LWB from Epaulet would be on the Barrie, but I would confirm with an email.

What I didn't notice then was that your strap appears to be a slightly darker shade than the rest of the shoe. That really makes them pop. Care to share your secret? Either way, I like the shoes and they work really well with the ensemble. Nicely done.

Another one saved biggrin.gif

 

No secret.  Just age and Mac method

Epaulet brown CXL PTB

I wanted a nice, daily shoe....but more importantly I needed something to hold me over while I'm waiting for some Pre-orders to be filled!![/quote]

Mine arrived on Wednesday last week and I wore them over the weekend a few times and to work today. Extremely comfortable and they seem like they will be very versatile.

Pretty nice. I find theres a big difference in brown CXl from alden and the http://epauletnewyork.com/products/steinbeck-shortwing-boot-brown-chromexcel

Looks totally different, alden is more reddish and lighter, is it the same CXL (both say brown)?

It could be the lighting, as both are Horween brown CXL and in one of those pictures of those boots the red undertones really shine through.

I think the brown of my CXL Alden looks pretty similar to that. Always tough to tell from pics.
