Love these. One of the best to come out of Leather Soul (I assume) for sure!

Been really busy at work... tough to keep up with all of the posts the last few weeks.

 

Yesterday with Ravello NST...


Today with color 8 SWB on commando (barrie)...


...and no, I am not a Buckeye.  I do like their colors though.  :D

Two of Alden's best models combined with a great cordovan color.  If only I had been aware of Leather Soul at the time they did this make-up.  A great make-up.

I was in Alden DC today and they had a couple of new things. Sadly, I left my phone at home today so I couldn't take pictures.

First, they have a half-lined brown CXL LHS with flex sole. The front is unlined and the rear is lined, similar to the suede version. Very comfortable and roomy in the forefoot, so it may be more forgiving for those with LHS strap discomfort. I knew these were coming in but I had in my mind that they would be fully unlined like the BB LHS, but not so. I passed because I already have the fully lined version from Leather Soul. I don't know how many pairs they have or what sizes, so call if interested.

Second, they got in a bunch of color 8 belts from the new manufacturer. They are all the wide version, 35mm I think. They are very thick and hefty with very nice construction. Buckles come in brass or nickel plated. They look like undyed color 8, so not the dark eggplant.

Sorry, but I don't know prices on either item. No pictures, no vital data. What a heel I am :-)

Beautiful Ravello NST monk straps and argyles Mac.They are a unique and praiseworthy make-up.

Belts are around $350 I believe.  They are a limited "test run" from the new manufacturer--the company that makes the Cape Code Collection used to make the Alden belts but stopped a year or more ago.  Alden SF just got the same belts as well, which is why I know the preceding.  They do look very nice.  They are far more substantial than the prior iteration.  The tabs I recall are half moons instead of the old "pizza-slice" (can't think of a better description), which makes the belt look more formal in my estimation.

A question about deer bones for polishing shel cordovan.

I have the lower leg bone from a dear that I would like to use for polishing cordovan when needed.But, I haven't seen a polishing bone in person and I have no idea how they are prepared or treated for use on shoes. Can anyone fill me in on this?

Thanks!

Oh man, I really like these. Sad and glad I don't have a chance of finding a pair like these.
