    Actually I'm working in conjunction with mdubs to corner the shell market. Unlike the Hunt brothers attempt to corner the silver market, our plans are already working! I am concerned mdubs is starting to slow down a little.

    See Ya,

    Hi all, i am quite new about alden and i just bought a color 8 cap toe boot.

    However, i saw the shell quality is quite different between the left and right toe (right one is rough)

    Is this common case ? [​IMG]

    While I haven't been around too long, I have noticed that shell Aldens bought today are more grainy than those of yesteryear. Is it common? Yes. It stinks that is in on the cap. On my captoes, luckily they chose the smoothest part for the caps and the grainier parts were used elsewhere. You could try to exchange, but you never know what you'll get in exchange.

    If Epaulet's initial pictures of this shoe were just a little bit better looking, I would have snagged this pair last year when they came out. It is beautiful... enjoy them often and in great health my friend!

    Either these have sold or they're not searchable properly because I don't see them.

    Seller has zero feedback and this is not the first time they've been listed. He's taken two auctions down already.

    Man, those natty CXL Indy boots have sharp eyelets that I've tried to file down, but the sharp metal has practically frayed one area of the laces. So annoying. Should I contact the retailer and see if they'll send me another pair of laces?

    I'm a little disappointed in the QC. I always read about it, but finally experienced it with this pair of boots.

    EDIT:

    Done. Shipped replacement today, I believe. Need Supply rules.

    Reviving an old idea from a few weeks ago now that we have more "rare" shell make ups become available....maybe.

    Top 3 obtainable "grail" shoes! They can be non-shell too, please include last and sole.

    Here are mine:

    1.) Cigar NST boot (Tanker) on Barrie and commando sole
    2.) Ravello short wing blucher on Barrie, either waterlok sole or double leather
    3.) Whiskey perf cap toe boot (Jumper) on Barrie and commando sole

    Ha! You think I have slowed down??? I have ordered 8 pairs of rare shells in the last week or so. All my pre-orders have flourished.
