Thanks for going to the trouble to finding that. I think those are the Alder in burnished tan. No commando sole either. They do look a lot lighter than the website photos though. Makes me wonder about the Hanovers...

Burnished tan does sound familiar. I tried!

I'm afraid this looks a little like the wicked witch and her ruby slippers.  Oh well...

 

How did you get it to be this red?  

 

I haven't worn them that often since I acquired them (8 months ago).  They came like this.  They should darken as they have more exposure to sun, but I think I kind of like them as is.

Works for me.  I'll be in Brazil this summer singin' away!  Wonder if they sell Alden or shell in Rio?

whomever is a head of me for the 11.5D ravello LWB from alden.. if you grab it and find it doesn't work, please let me know. I appear be to second in line, but they want to allow the first person in line 7-10 days to accept or waive their ability to purchase.. I just want to put to bed the fiasco from earlier this year with jcrew 'losing' my pair and get my one last grail.

 

thanks in advance!

 

and even have a couple trades in the 11.5-12d range to sweeten the deal..

Alden guys, I'd love your opinions on a suede boot primarily for the fall and winter.  Which of the following would you recommend for mostly casual wear (denim and chinos) but perhaps a little dressier every now and then?  

 

1) Alden snuff suede chukka boot

 

2) Alden x Leffot Cooney boot 

 

Or, would you recommend something else?  I really like both of these, and they are priced similarly.  Also, FWIW, I plan to get the Indy 403 later this fall/winter.  Thanks in advance!

 

If you plan to pick up a pair of 403's and you want to be able to dress up that snuff, I would go with the chukka (Leydon).  It's sleeker than the Cooney.  However, I very much prefer the Cooney boot though.  Snuff suede is primarily casual in nature.  I like the cooney boot and J Crew's snuff suede plain toe boot as well, more so than the chukka.

Thanks,

I had the same uneven dying on my jcrew cap toe color 8.
Post pic and somebody said it's rare that the dying process is even. Does brushing it help get rid of it?

Brushing doesn't help with this in my experience.

thank you sir. i have 2 color #8 captoe boots, the other being jcrew captoe. I think once the jcrew captoe is due for a resole, ill ask b.nelson to switch out the edge trim and welt stitching to match leffot naval boot

sorry for the crost brand posting, but I spend most of time (and admire) the posters in this thread..

 

I've tried unsuccessfully to bring up the shine on some AE brown shell patriots.. Liberal use of renomat and has been applied and removed some material, combined with some spirited brushing.. still cant see to get a decent shine. definitely an improvement over the pair not yet worked on Patriot, but not what I fell is accomplishable..

 

any thoughts? any one (other than MAC as I know his time is money) that has had success? I'd almost entertain shipping this pair of to someone just to see what they could accomplish..

You may want to post this over in the shoe care thread: 

http://www.styleforum.net/t/228153/the-official-shoe-care-thread-tutorials-photos-etc/

 

I think Renomat is made to STRIP the shell. So, you would need to add wax back and buff after using it if I'm not mistaken.
