    Looks like my bid was cancelled and auction ended 3 days early

    No reason given

    Oh well

    Maybe the seller was following this thread, but unlikely because they could have gotten more than $349 for that pair. Still, poor form on their part.

    Probably the case. He had a BIN for 450, but I wasn't willing to do that sight unseen on a last I've never tried on before

    I've seen the modified last v tip - I need to try it on to get a better feel... I think the grant last is an underappreciated one when it comes to boots

    True statement. :nodding: I would like to see Alden use it in more of their models - boot and shoes.

    Email sent over at LS

    I'm buying some Alden boots, and I already have a cigar LWB, so these black calf skins look great

    Thank you! I also love the soft and suppleness of an unlined suede chukka. With a pair of linen pants, I almost feel like I am wearing pyjama pants and slippers to work.

    For your information, the pair shown in my picture was bought from Tassels in Hong Kong. It's on Barrie last with plantation crepe sole.

    Did you buy from Wallace or Vickie at Tassels? They have amazing customer service!

    Without sounding like a plant (espeically with a low post-count member like myself), the whole Tassels crew is unrivalled when it comes to customer service.

    I have been buying aldens from Tassels for about three years and I will continue to shop from them because of their service and the designs they put out. I have both the boot and shoe collaboration they did with Obscura magazine and they are stunning.
