Alden for J.Gilbert makeup - nst boots model 45152HC, shell #8, commando sole, Plaza last. Fit is good, as I ordered US10E - my normal size is UK9,5E

I like the fit of Plaza much more than fit of Barrie and Aberdeen (the nastiest one I've tried).


700


Nice looking boot, Sir. NST on the Plaza last is a great combo.

When you start having your dress shirts custom made, even though your size is readily available, you've gone way too far.

Gentlemen,

Does anybody happen to have the color 8 handsewn four eyelet blucher oxford (style #73906) that is currently for sale at Alden on Madison Ave:

Is it basically the Ranger Mocc (which I believe has five eyelets)?

Any additional photos or info would be appreciated.

But when it comes to shines, be it calf or shell, there is just a sense of satisfaction that I get from sitting in my basement or back yard and taking care of them myself. I am gently trying to instill some of this enthusiasm into my son. Let's just say that it is till a work in progress.

 

I get NO satisfaction from ironing my shirts or chinos (when they need it). But...I find that polishing my shoes and boots is almost like a meditation session for me.  It allows me to focus on what I am doing and empty the restless mind of everything else.  I initially worried about the "obligation" of maintaining my boot collection as it started to grow but it is something I look forward to doing now.

IIRC, CTYGGG has the six blind eyelet dover cousin.

Thank you Bakes11771. I did see CTYGGG's post from earlier this year & it sure looks similar (except the side stitching). I was just curious about the Alden NY four eyelet version - whether it really is just a four eyelet Ranger Mocc. It reminds me of an old Made in Maine LL Bean moc shoe that I own. Love to have something similar in shell.

I like your boots. They appear to be breaking in nicely. Wear them in good health.

Nice boots MrEsco. I've looked at this one several times, but I really want to get an Indy in a C width, which seems to limit the options to the 405 & 403.

Makes two of us. I've tried the no-iron variety and it just doesn't feel the same as your typical cotton shirt that needs pressed. I've gotten so used to ironing and starching shirts over the years that I've never considered a steamer. Based on a few previous posts, I may investigate this option further.
