He is talking about chamois, not suede

J.Gilbert used to have tobacco chamois indy on crepe. Last time I checked, they still had a bunch of sizes in stock.

Alden makes a snuff suede chukka as part of its standard line.  Find them at Alden NYC, DC or SF.

Leffot has made a wingtip boot on chamois.  J. Gilbert offered a chamois boot as well.

is it the style or the cost?

It's purely cost oriented.

The smooth vs rough chamois are distinctly different. I really don't see very many styles in the smooth. I have only seen an indy and lhs.

That's okay, just advise her that when adjusted for inflation those #2's will pay for a 4 year college degree for your children.

"Honestly, the AE Dalton in burgundy shell is the one AE shoe/boot that I feel competes well with Alden, in terms of look and quality, and honestly beats Alden's color 8 WT boot on Barrie (Unionmade) by a mile."

 

My apologies Buddy.  I mistakenly thought these were your words.  They were from @sacafotos.  I think Roguls main issue was with sacafotos blasphemous post.  At least that's what I recall.  No harm intended my friend...

2. AE's MTO policy is great.
3. I typically don't buy seconds, but some good deals can be had.
4. AE's CS is great.

SFTG dropping the guillotine of knowledge once again.

Keep in mind I'm looking at a WT boot on Plaza. Hah!

Carry on, fellas. I'll take off my muddy Daltons at the door.

Totally Agree! Jim was so nice and helpful.  I visited Alden SF about 2 weeks ago and I was fortunate enough to get a Cigar PTB with antique edge in my size!! Love it so much!:happy:

The Alden equalizer shot

yes dear, I get it.

My wife spends a lot on shoes, and she appreciates that what I buy is carefully considered and basically for life.  I went on a search for women's goodyear welted shoes, and only came up with Carmina.  I have picked up three pairs for her, and the quality of build (stitch vs glue) is far beyond the Italian mules she usually wears.  I buy them with loving generosity, for sure, but I don't kid myself that they don't reinforce the habit for both of us.
