Ummm, I would have bought them in a millisecond if they would fit me. :-)

Suggest that you do us all a favor and buy them, wear them, love and care for them, and share beautiful pics of them for the years to come.

I can speak to Alden shell belts, of which I own two (cigar and whiskey).  While the finishes and hardware are excellent, I don't love the fact that the belts have three panels stitched together in overlapping fashion.  Makes the belt much less sleek and quite a bit bulkier than I'd prefer.  The BB belts, IMO, are thinner and flimsier, and perhaps the other extreme of what the Alden models offer.

good to hear. do you think the alden belts are suitable for everyday wear, or are they too fragile? with the exception of hanover brown shell, i only have color 8/ae burgundy shoes :0 and i would so much rather wear a shell belt than my calfskin burgundy one!

 

what's the status on alden belts now, anyway--has anybody heard about recent stock at the regular retailers" (i know alden sf used to have a decent stock, but then i heard that dried up)

Fantastic looking boots.

I am in my 30's as well but would never rock tassels. I love the look but just not my style

Just picked up these BB #8 Cordovan Plain Bluchers for a fairly good price.

 

They're on a more narrow last than the Barrie (M58) and I like them a lot!

Way to go TT. You know I love the laces. These are sure to become one of your favorites.

Speaking of spotting Alden in the wild, I've seen a handful of people wearing Alden suede chukkas out and about around Metro Detroit. I'm surprised I've never noticed any Indy Boots in the wild. I figure that it's a distinctive enough makeup, compared to other similar work boot styles, but I don't think I've ever seen somebody wearing them.

Not Alden, but I did notice somebody at Starbucks wearing a pair of Tricker's Stowe boots recently. Until then, I had never seen somebody with a pair of Tricker's around here.

The whole age/tassels thing has come up in this thread many times before, and I think you hit the nail right on the head, Rydenfan.  It is not an issue of age, rather a matter of personal style.  I'm under thirty (barely) and have 3 pairs.  My cigar tassels are probably my favorite pair of Aldens.

I absolutely think it is a style and not an age thing. Hell, I grew up in NYC and had friends rocking tassels at 15. It is the same reason I would wear an LHS but not a full strap, as stylistically one works for me and one doesn't. Disclaimer I have not put on a tie or pair o dress slacks (outside of Epaulet Walts) in about 3-4 years so I tend to be on the more casual side of this thread

 

BTW, your cigars look great!!!

Half size smaller (10D) and I would've been all over these.
