    Looks like there is a split in the leather? You should take this back.

    I have a pair of Alden for JCrew LWB in snuff suede headed my way. Any suggestions on a belt? Something more on the casual side preferably...

    If you're not interested in a belt from Alden, maybe go with C&J. I'm very happy with my C&J belt and the belts from them that I've handled.

    MrDV -- inspiring boot envy since 4/2012. :nodding: I have what I would consider a modest but respectable collection of Aldens, 8 pairs in total. But I'm pretty certain that I would give up 5 pairs for those Ravello cap toes.

    You guys with size 10-12 feet are so lucky. Those sizes are always the last to go, so you guys can have your pick with all the discounted shoes. I would jump on those jumper boots if I had 11.5 size feet.

    I use it and it works OK. I think it is just re-packaged Armor All. Has the same look, milky consistency and smell.

    I'm not sure cordovan needs it. Shell is very water resistant, and all it takes to look new again is a bit of brushing. I've never experienced any issues with welting.

    possibly.. but the larger sizes are also typically ordered in much smaller increments..

    just for curiosity sake (and so I know how to sniper out if need be), who's 11.5+ around here?

    im 11.5-12TTS

    So am I.

    If we're being honest, all the size runs have plenty of demand going for them, and what's left is totally random

    I have emailed Alden about the defect. They replied that i should send it back. Now i am waiting for the reply on whether the repair and shipping is free of not. If not, how much.

    I have an Allen Edmonds belt in snuff. I think the model is called the Player's Belt.
