    I've heard of sagging your jeans a bit, but this is ridiculous

    It literally looks like a horrid photoshop job of a smaller guy cut off at the legs and replaced with some other dude's torso

    IIRC its the commando sole.

    Hopefully one of the guys holding a 9.5D is going to flake and i can get my pair now instead of in the next order due in July...

    Yes, they got one of their shipments in and it's with the commando sole. I would actually like these boots in double oak leather for a sleeker profile.

    Does Alden use a full grain suede for their ptbs? Or is it split?

    Hmmm, do I really want to call and ask for my size? This is just going to end badly...

    I just bought my first pair of Aldens this week, and aside from a sleight default, I think they are great. Here is the default though... There is a small slice in the leather on the left shoe. I didn't notice it until 2 days after I bought them. The slice is on the upper on the inside (outside of the shoe, but facing the other shoe), and is about 1.5 - 2 inches long. It looks like a razer blade slice, and is very shallow. They are burgundy wingtips on the modified last from Moulded Shoe in NY. Should I take them back and try to exchange them?

    Will it bother you every time you wear them? If so, see what they can do for you. If not, then you chalk them up as added character. It's really up to you.
