You better not be leaving whip marks on that shell . . .

Chalk it up as "patina" and the imperfect nature of handmade goods.

Hello again, everyone. I emailed Adele at Epaulet, and she was kind enough to offer me an exchange. Dylan at Epaulet sent over a few photos of the one other pair of Alden Natural CXL longwings in my size. Adele also explained that small inconsistencies are simply part of Alden's products and that buying and wearing Alden products requires a little tolerance for those inconsistencies, which I completely understand.

The pair offered for replacement seems a little better than the first pair. The left shoe is almost straight with regard to the brogue holes being centered down the middle, across the toes. However, the right shoe looks uneven to me again, as if the brogue holes are sliding toward the big toe side of the shoe. (Does that make sense?)

The left shoe on my first pair was dead even, so I'm comparing all of the other shoes to that one. Is that wrong? I'm starting to think that I may be too picky, and that all Alden longwings are uneven/uncentered. (My AE longwings are dead even.)

All opinions are welcome, and thank you again.

My Best,
Christopher

The first pair...left shoe.


The first pair...right shoe.


The replacement pair.

Thank you, everyone, for the helpful advice. I appreciate it, as always. And the good people at Epaulet were kind enough to allow a return for refund, so I'm taking that route. The Alden x Leffot model looks similar, so I may try my luck with their stock. Or I may try the ShoeMart model for a less playful look (no natural welt, no white stitching). Who knows?

My Best,
Christopher

FWIW, I pulled out my pair and noticed a similar "twist" of the front sole and welting compared to the broguing. It hasn't bothered me in the least re: fit or feel.

But to each their own. It's definitely not as pronounced as that.

Glad you got it resolved. I knew Epaulet would take care of you. Good luck on your next aquisition! Hopefully you'll be posting pics just to show them off.

MrDV stole all my thunder here, but here are my black NST. The Aberdeen NST one of Alden's sleeker looking models. Color 8 may be a necessity

Trousers there are great, Alci.
