Hate to :deadhorse:...but  damn!! These so stunning. For me, they fall in the top three shoes/boots in the thread...or any thread!

 

And another nicely composed birds eye shot.

didn't the shoemart have that exact boot in stock a few years ago? i recall there was a full size run up for quite a while.... must have been the time everyone was dead set on trying to save money on aldens and not worried about cordovan colors smile.gif.

j gilbert has navy suede chukkas as does unionmade.

 

Edit:  I just saw the follow-up post with the ever-important information that you are looking for an "e" width.  That knocks out unionmade, which only orders in "d" widths.  The J Gilbert model was also a make-up and, typically, to get an "e" width, you have to pre-order the required size.  You should check to see if J gilbert has your size, but they may not have many "e" widths.

Not everyone's cup of tea, I realize, but I'm pleased with them. Next week my second pair (Whiskey NSTs) arrive!

That's a brave first pair of Alden ! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

To be honest I'm surprised at how great those look in the wild.

I thought those shoes were hideous looking Frankenshoes when I saw them on the LS website but when I saw them in person at the DC store my mind was completely changed. If they had had them in my size when I was in town I would have had a hard time resisting them.

Bought a massage sole and put it in. Fits like a glove.

No. It's be disputed repeatedly on here.  Nobody has been able to offer any concrete evidence that it has adverse effects.  The best that has been offered is theorization.

 

You should get the Lexol wipes for your leather furniture.  I know that doesn't help you use up your VSC.

 

Reno vs VSC has been debated repeatedly on this thread.  Nobody has been able to offer any proof that one is superior to the other.  One smells better, one is cheaper.  As far as results, there really is no discernible difference, and I would be skeptical of anyone who says otherwise.

 

Yes, this is one of a few common problems that occur with speed hooks.  Also one of the reasons why they are a deal-breaker for me every time, except for non-alden boots.

 

good to know, thanks for the info. seems I'll have to grab some saphir cream for future use

^^ yes, good input, Bakes. I will also have to get some Saphir neutral cream. I've found that sometimes Reno or VSC don't seem to moisturize enough. And I usually don't want to add any color.
