***The official Alden thread *** - Page 3982
I just had an awesome experience shopping for some Alden's in Houston...
Johnny Mykoff at Norton Ditto knows his Alden's and has been in the business for 30+ years. He even noticed my shell PTBs as I walked in the store.
If you're in the area, I'd highly recommend stopping by. They even stock Saphir polish!
They didn't have what I was looking for - NAVY CXL PTB but it was a pleasure shopping nonetheless.
I thought I'd let everyone know in case business or life brings you to Houston.
I have been there as well. Both of their "shoe gentlemen" are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Unfortunately for them Vincent Ford, a haberdashery across town (5-10 minutes away) sells their Aldens cheaper and they usually come direct from the factory within three days. I bought a pair of color 8 LWBs from VF for $600. ND wanted $665. I know it's not that big a difference but I'm still on a budget. Both B&M stores are great.
Their website shows some limited stock:
How did you get it to be this red?
