Any of you had experience with the Alden commando sole?

I could see that but outside I had more support from the other soles.

Can't speak for wet indoors yet, but on ice ... the dainite is very hard, so lacks "grip" just like summer tires compared to soft winter tires.

For grip on ice, and general winter wear, I've not seen better than Vibram 'gumlite'. I've got a pair of lug soles on the bottom of an old pair of dress/casual shoes, and it's great. (Note, this is a brown, lightweight, soft sole, not the classic hard black sole you probably associate with the Vibram name. I can't see sticking this sole on the bottom of good dress shoes, but when I find the right commando dress boots ... )

Haven't tried 'em, I'm afraid.

Yes, I have Alden's commando soles on both shoes and boots. I think they grip nicely. They are my go-to footwear for rain, snow, and ice.

Does anyone know if this is for the jacket or the overcoat? This may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it seems to be a pretty good price for a crazy ass suit. I put the coat and the pants in the cart and it came out to be $455.60, which is a crazy 85% off. Also are there any codes I can use to knock off the price even more? Thanks.

I just ordered the same items as yours. The total came out to be $291 for the jacket and $111 for the pants with inseam and waist done. The inseam and waist taken in should save me about $50 :-).

thanks.


Based solely on nail pattern, I am about 95% sure they are C&J (one row). I paid particular attention out of personal curiosity, and anticipation that this question might come up here on SF. I am 100% on the monks oxfords, but I wasn't as interested in the more casual styles
