    Kudu leather is underrated.

    I wish they made the Kudu Indys without the commando sole.

    I'm thinking about it, anyone know if you have to pay import duties?

    I have been keeping my eye out for a casual alden shoe to wear this summer along with my cigar PTB. I was kind of hoping to find something in suede and luckily snagged this pair off theshoemart irregulars lising for a decent price. A little dark but otherwise a perfect shoe for summer. Super comfortable right out of the box too.

    Reverse Chamois, unlined, plantation crepe sole

    I looked around a little but couldn't determine who is retailing this shoe makeup??

    Had pretty good luck with the irregulars in the beginning but not as of late. Last one I ordered had a cut 1/3 down the small toe area and just had stitching to keep it closed. Too bad it was a #8 NST boot in an Aberdeen(?) but alas, it went back.

    Do you fellas know of anyone carrying suede LWBs now? Like the ones Epaulet had (they're sold out, if I'm not mistaken). Thanks.

    Alden Madison Ave shows these on its website, though they are a different color:

    I covet these (along with some of their PTB suede), so buy an extra pair in 10.5E or 11D that won't fit you and then sell them to me cheap.:)

    Great. Thanks for the lead, Frank. I'll see if I can slip an extra pair past my sharp-eyed wife.
