I myself am planning a two week trip soon and was thinking what shoes I would take. I would probably take three - a loafer, boot and a shoe. Probably Leffot tankers, some kind of LHS and my suede longwings. Something like a CXL tanker or even an Indy boo would also be a good travel shoe.

Gotta love Alden today. I bring back my 975s for exchange and the retailer has no more. He calls Alden to see if they have any in stock and they say "Our computers are down...call back later"

It's Alden...not surprised, LOL. They probably have the same computers "since 1884" as well... rotflmao.gif

Sorry, sazon. Hopefully it will get straightened out soon.

No burgundy shell at Alden sf, they do have them in black shell. Check shoe mart if you want the color 8 shell wingtip.

^^ Thanks. Just bought my last pair of boots for at least a couple months. I do want a shell wingtip and will probably be my next boot. I passed on the wingtip on Commando from NYC a bit ago and ShoeMart doesn't have my size at the moment. I actually still haven't decided if I want commando or leather soles.

Not an expert, but that looks like the WELT is coming off.

That pair is done. You need a replacement.

I just got off the phone with Alden...apparently due to popular demand...they're selling an adhesive NST stitch you can stick on all your plain toe shoes. It's going to be available in calf and shell. This will be HUGE for tifosi. Now he can make any shoe an NST!

^^^ Hmmmm...a wingtip NST....

Contacted Frans Boone just on the off chance they're restocking the cigar PT boots sometime in the relative near future.  Basically no, and their #8 and black offerings will be around in September.  They told me that even the #8 and black models will be rare in the new future.  Not sure if this is back they're OCONUS, but it's sad to hear.  

 

The search for cigar continues!

The #8 NST? Or did you score something else?
