Thanks blue. I like the new angle as well. I can't see any spots or blemishes from 3 ft away, reminds me not to be concerned with every scratch.

All very nice models. nod[1].gif

I personally prefer the ravello boot going away. Where did you find that model?

No need to be so modest sir. You have a most enviable shoe collection.

This was my design and Phil at Ashland obliged my request and made it for me out of marbled shell. Is it now a standard design at Ashland? Maybe I need to change careers and become a shell wallet designer.

Coinopcollector next time you design a wallet how about one with a visible section for a license. It makes it so easy when asked for your ID.

Hi all. After a multi month wait I've just received my first pair of Alden (and cordovan) shoes! They are the Alden cap toe cordovan boots for JCrew.

As an owner of several pairs of AE shoes I am very impressed by the craftsmanship of these boots. They are simply beautiful.

I was a little afraid on the sizing as I've never tried a shoe on in this last, but from first try on they feel as though they will fit great. Phew!

Two pictures and associated questions. Hopefully you'll humor me:

There's a section of the leather right behind the toe cap that is lighter than the rest. It's not so different that it's stands out when looking down while standing but it caught my eye when lacing them. Is this typical that the dyeing would show such contrast? Not thrilled on potentially waiting for an exchange, but given the price...

I presume this texture is just from a heavy layer of wax. Do you all typically remove some of the wax that comes on your shoes from the factory?

Thanks for any input.

If those are the only imperfections that you have found, then you have made out very well.

A definite +1. ochong, the J Crew pct's are a great way to start your shell collection. Congrats and wear them in good health.
post #67467 of 87835
Thanks for the input guys. I love them, but you know how it goes some times... Just thought I'd ask this extremely knowledgable group!
post #67468 of 87835
TBH Och those pcts look pretty good. Given the state of some of the previous Alden QC complaints, I would say you did well.

FWIW, my Beckmans are my Barrie size or .5 down from brannock. They need much more break in time than other boots (Alden shell/CXL, 1K, OSB Trench, etc.) but once broken in, they fit very well. Had I gone TTS, I'd be swimming in them. After a year of wear, I still need relatively thick socks.

When I travel I almost always reach for a chukka... My cigar chukkas have been really valuable with this poor weather and travel this week... Time to get the color 8 version.
