    Apologies if this has been asked before, but I'm hoping someone on here can offer a recommendation.

    I love the look of the alden snuff suede dover, but in my size it was too loose in the heel. I'm sure once worn it would improve, but I wondered if anyone has ever seen any alternatives?

    It's specifically the dover / blucher style and that particular shade of snuff suede that I'm most drawn to. Not too fussed about lined vs unlined.

    Thanks!
    Tom

    Great stuff gentlemen! Happy Monday indeed!

    *PSA - For the kind patrons of this thread I'll take $50 off my Ravello LHS and $100 off the suit. Simply mention that you saw my post, but I'll more than likely recognize you. :)*

    Good morning gentlemen.
    Do you know where I can find a pair of the Cigar Medallion boots? I'm looking forward to them but I haven't seen them for a long time. Thank you.

    Black shell LWBs on a Monday. While I love these guys and post them frequently, I must say that I anxiously await the arrival of some dark brown Regina grain Alden LWB with antique welt at the end of the month. Till then, more wears on these guys.

    Sadly I think that's a lost cause. Your best bet would be to keep an eye out for used/new-old-stock pairs on Styleforum classifieds, Yahoo Auctions Japan, and maybe Grailed or reddit/gyw. Given how small the run was and how long ago they were made (2010) and sold (2014), I'm guessing you may never see them again. @mdubs , do we know which vendor those were originally ordered for? I'm assuming if they didn't take delivery that they will not be re-ordering them... I know they ended up at DC.

    Welcome to the thread @chrfi ! Good to see some fresh suede here! Your Snuff PTBs are looking superb in the autumn sun..


    Looking great Joel, the Ravello NST Boot is hard to top!


    Them Cigar CT Boots are looking superb @shunted22 ! Enjoy your boot weather... It is not here by any stretch of the imagination yet.


    Looking great in your Chinos and B+M Kermit LWBs! Enjoy your Columbus day!


    Still feels like summer here and that is a great choice! Happy Monday!


    Great looking Black Shell Cordovan LWBs @smfdoc ! Those are looking lovely with your slacks.

    @JSO1 is correct, I am hoping to get another vendor to remake them, but it will be time as Cigar isn't just readily floating around. Unfortunately, the run that @JSO1 is referring to was only a half-run of only 6-8 pairs all in E widths. Unfortunately, we do not know who exactly it was made for as it was an Asian or European retailer and they chose not to pay for them...


    Looking great today in your Natty CXL PT Boots today @sazon ! Have a great Monday bud!

    -Mike

    A few non Aldens in there...but here's the boot lineup this year. Wife says I'm Crazy.

    As I appear to be over invested in Captoes, and woefully without wingtips, keep an eye out on the B&S if you're an 9.5 D us tts. Might be posting a few of these in the coming days.
