The Alden 4060 is indeed only made on request for individual retailers. As far as I know, the 4060 are sold pretty much only at Alden Madison Avenue, The Shoe Mart and Citishoes.

And the light bulb just went on. Makes sense. Thanks.

Agreed.

However, Alden shell is considerably shinier than shell shoes from other makers.

If you don't like the gloss, you've got options. But shell can take a beating like no other, and requires only basic maintenance.

It's happening again as I wear my color 8 BB wingtips and my black 9016 way more than my cigar balmoral captoes. I feel that may change by the spring, though...

My cigar captoe boots, cigar chukkas and whiskey PTB are untouchable, though.

100% agreed,as I have sold the following models over the past year:

Cigar LWB
Whiskey LWB
Ravello Captoe Blucher
Cigar PTB
Ravello wing tip boot (sold, as was too close to #4 WTB)
AE Cigar ttrand
AE Walnur Shell Strand

I am down to 2 Ravello (PTB and LWB) 2 Cigar (Indy and WT Boot) and 1 whiskey (PTB)

Heresy!

Would never think of pairing these up, but they look great with raw denim!
post #71751 of 98971

can anyone shed light on why some Alden X JCrew on the bay are marked with black marker on the insole "to prevent returns"?

 

does this signify seconds, try ons/returns, shop soiled,  or something else? sold at discount?

 

thx.

I am very heavy on Color 8 and black, at least 5 of each, with Ravello a close second at 3 pairs.  Have one each of Cigar (LWB), Whiskey (chukka), and Color 4 (cap toe boot), only for the variety, but hardly consider them staples.  I evolved into this situation myself, having sold my less frequently worn makeups.

Sorry- are these the same as their Brown chromexcel PTB? When I look up the covers the style number is completely diff (dover- 29364f vs PTB blucher- 95080).

Hi there,

 

I just got this pair from theshoesmart. I cannot find any reviews or details about this model. The model no. #3560, brown calf and Van last. Do you have any ideas about this model. 

 

Thank you so much.

what do you want to know? Alden makes a Moc c stitch toe loafer - the lhs - in many colors of cordovan and calf skin leather. It makes a lace-up shoe with a mocc stitch toe in cordovan and many colors of calf akin leather that you don't see as much as the lpafer. My sense is that the Alden makes the lace-up only on retailer order. You have a mocc to lace-up boot that is even more rare than the lace-up and looks like a great casual boot. Enjoy them.

Fine looking boots and khakis my friend.  Stay warm and dry, and wear in great health...

Alden's colors are 100% consistent and do not change over time. Case in point, my Ravello LWB collection.

 

 

 

 

Yes, all three of these are Ravello... :-)

Cigar LWB, Ravello PTB, Ravello LWB, and RL Marlow

 

 

Cigar LWB

 

Ravello LWB

 

While my Cigar LWB and Ravello PTB are very close, the ravello LWB is substantially different (much more red).  Lighting can make all of these shades look pretty close.
