FYI, guys, didn't see this posted in the last 10 pages, but it's a deal site for what seems like Woodlore epic twin tube trees with pretty cheap shipping (non referral link):

started as a scrap whilst holding the door for a pretty woman





which then escalated into an inscription 




which then expanded




and then finally, after less than a minute with a cheap horsehair





as much as I LOATHE CXL for its creasing, I cannot underappreciate the ability to work out scuffs etc since it is so oily..
It looks like these cxl Indy's have a double leather sole. Is it possible to have Alden boots with commandos changed to double leather?

It's cheaper straight from the woodlore site if you purchase 2 or more once you factor in the shipping.

If the resellers were successful at reselling the shoes abroad, then the mark-ups were by definition not "significant".  If people paid the prices the that resellers were asking, they did so happily and not begrudgingly.

bakes, if the account of Alden's purported unannounced and informal efforts to stop unauthorized overseas selling are true - and that caveat really tells the story - what alden is doing is far different than rand - spouting yoga pants maker. That ought to be very clear.

Wow. Used for more than $650, already, with two days left.  Good luck to the winner. I hope it is worth it.  I guess you can wear shoes for two years or more, and unload for a profit. 

Cheers.

Has anyone seen the green suede chukkas from Alden SF? Any pics?
post #73674 of 87604

I wouldn't be surprised. I feel as if more used (and new) Ravello and Cigar have shown up recently than Whiskey.
post #73675 of 87604

That's insane.

Does anyone know of any other PTB or similar offerings in navy CXL, preferably stateside?  $600+ is too much for me to justify.

Yes, I believe it will. They're still someone else's used shoes though. Their style, quality of construction and materials, and their amount of use leads me to believe that they're worth about $559.99 despite being "rare" whiskey shell.

Leffot Tankers in #8 are in! Took them out for their maiden voyage today. First photo in artificial light. The other two are outdoors. 

 

The shell is SUPER greasy compared to my Ravello LWB.

^^ Awesome! Plan to wear mine today.
