I looked at getting some Alden Leather Defender in Canada, and it seems that unless you can get someone to proxy it, it's not an option. No one will ship it to Canada that I remember. Hopefully someone knows something I don't, as I wouldn't mind trying some this winter on some shell.

Thanks much for the feedback - I think the cordovan versions of the ramsey are great - just not sure how good the plain old calf versions are... must try to go check them out in store.

All: don't know if this has been posted yet, but Tres Bien is offering 55 Eur. off and free shipping on orders of over 300. I haven't done the minus VAT / discount conversion, but this may make some stock Alden models slightly less expensive than normal.

Those are great-looking boots, Mr. DV.

 

Moulded sole also has a pebble grain boot.

Many of the pictures here look "glass-like," "dipped in liquid chocolate," etc... due to the correct outdoor lighting and sometimes manipulative electronic apps.  Wipe down with a damp, soft towel, brush, and buff before wearing (or after).  They will look great!  Apply wax or conditioning cream a couple of times each year.  The conditioning and wax doesn't do a whole lot to make them shine, imho.

These are pics of mine that have not seen any wax yet...




I 'need' a pair of these. Just an awesome classic.

#8 LHS should be included in the first 3 shells that every man must own; so versatile.
