    Alden 4x4 Seconds on eBay

    So somebody grabbed a pretty unique pair of seconds - the 4x4s that Tom made up. I'm not sure what this guy paid for them but it looks like he's anticipating a nice profit.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Alden-4-Shell-Co...item45f7f94ac6


    Went for $905 + shipping.

    Congrats to the seller.

    And my order's safely shipped, so I'll go ahead and post it - I was lucky enough to snag some cigar shell longwing bluchers from Shoemart, seconds - plus they were nice enough to apply the January sale since it was a phone order. Before anyone asks, there are no more cigar/whiskey/ravello longwings in any size as far as the phone rep could see. [​IMG]

    $350 + $10 shipping - is that about what Aldens cost in 1999? Sure, seconds, but if they turn out to be in good shape, I think I'm doing extremely, extremely well in my inflation-fighting! [​IMG]


    Please don't tell me these were in a 6.5E.

    im 95% sure they are all sold out. he only had small sizes under 9 left to begin with. and i just happened to be a 8.5D. but yeah in the LSH pics they seem very bright like almost orange but the pic (iphone terrible quality) i think shows the richer, darker tone it has
    Yeah, I read that when he posted. I'm .5 size smaller than you are. I hope the 8's are all gone!

    What are peoples thoughts on Alden light Tan Suede makeups, such as longwings? Are they a versatile color, and are they high maintenance at all considering the lightness of the color? Just having trouble imagining what they would go with....

    Is snuff suede perhaps much more versatile? My only thing is that they are perhaps a bit more autumn than spring...

    snuff suede is absolutely sick. i have a pair of chukkas in the brown suede - nice, but nowhere near the color depth you see in snuff

    I really like those. Picked up the ravello longwings this past weekend, and those may be next on the list.

    I posted a picture of them on the last page.

    One of the Alden stores has them. I got mine at Alden SF while I was up there this weekend. They were shipped there from another store and a guy backed out of the sale, and I was fortunate enough to stumble onto them. Right place at right time. I personally think ravello is the nicest and most versatile shell color, along with cigar.

    I would try Alden DC to see if they were the ones that did the ravello longwing run.
