A nice pair of shoes nevertheless.

First pair of Aldens indeed.  Hold a special place in my rotation and perfect for wet snowy days like today 

I had a hunch that was the case. Well done. fistbump.gif

Your post raised the concern of my LWB. I have only worn mine twice. I dont mine the appearance of the little loose thread. But I am concern that it will looks more like yours over time.

Can you trim it with manicure scissors?

The stitching suppose to seal/sew the edge. I don't know if trimming it is a good idea.

What's the over-under on how long it will take those to disappear, if they haven't already?  45 minutes?  I'm tempted to buy them just so I can flip them.

Current tiers are Senior Member or nothing.  I don't really get it, that's all.  

 

Esp on this thread, where you're either a nephew or an Uncle, anyway.

Also, the 963 for $371 is a very very good price. That is a sharp shoe.

You talking about these?

 

 

Looks a bit different from the usual Alden calf. I wonder if it's the "lady calf" like these.

 

Only thing I've ordered from ShoeMart was a pair of irregulars which had a $10 shipping charge so I wasn't sure what the costs associated with shipping other items is.

 

Yeah, those are the ones. I like that it has a sole that can stand up to some rain. It's supposed to be much lighter as well. I think the look of that with the brown welt will give me the semi-casual look I'm going for.
