sacafotos,

carmina does many things well, some better than alden. I have tried but failed to scratch the alden itch with carmina, they are two different beasts.


nephew,
good looking boots

Got to agree with most everyone else, the Ravello NST Boot is the one.

Is that shoe specific to Alden of Carmel, or is there any other store that may have it in stock? I called Alden of NYC and they only stock shell longwings with leather soles.

Thanks

Assuming the 110 is commando, it is an AoC makeup.

Great looking Aldens all around today, gents.

Also, by chance, rocking the Rav NST today.
Aberdeen TTS for me as well.

I am sure I will be flamed for this but I actually prefer the NST on the Barrie over the Aberdeen. There is something about the more pointed toe on the Aberdeen that doesn't work for me with the stitched toe

I like them both.  I need them both.  The NST on Barrie is a great casual makeup.  The Aberdeen NST is dressier, more elegant.  I have the Leffot tanker but I hope to have a version on Aberdeen as well.  If I could only have one?  I don't want to live in that world.

My man! I feel the exact same way. I'm thinking the dressiest last I'll ever go with is Plaza (looking for Indys and NSTs on that last; I know J Gilbert is one place to check). For my collection: Plaza/Grant/Hampton/Barrie....with only one pair of TruBalance that was necessary.

 

Really surprised you take an 8 on the 2030 last, by the way.

 

Have you guys snagged a rare makeup (off another member, for instance) in a size that wasn't spot on, only to work it out with an insole or thicker socks?
