    Awesome collection. Where is the Alpine boot from?

    Nice, I love snuff suede. Great color for fall.

    Kathy makes them. It's the 4065HC. She has a restock in production right now. Give Alden DC a buzz. Should look like this but Black...

    Hey guys. I'm looking for an Indy boot like Gamble Hill's indy boot w/crepe sole. That is out of stock, though. Actually would prefer speed hooks. Also, non suede. Thanks.

    I happen to notice my new BB Black Shell Cordovan Tassel loafers are machine stitched around the vamp where as the Burgundy same make appear hand stitched. Weird, anybody else notice this? Also, it appears I am a 9D in this shoe so I have a brand new pair of #8 BB Tassels worn one day in the ever popular 8.5D. There are no more in this size anywhere in the country. I thought I'd offer these here first because of that reason before they hit the Bay. PM me if interested. [​IMG]

    Hopefully one can see the stitching difference in these shitty ipad pic's..

    Is there a list anywhere for color 8 LWBs with an antique edge? I love the look of those.

    not sure whether there's a list, but leffot is bound to get one started again since preorders were filled up for common sizes in less than 5 minutes.

    the look is definitely amazing; one of my favorites as well.

    I am wondering too. It seems all the shell stock is just dwindling away. God forbid the relationship is ending. I have sources at Alden hq and Brooks hq. I am going to make calls on Monday.

    Some of what Brooks carries (or dare I say carried) is outstanding and available no where else: tassel loafers with foxing on the heel, unlined lhs, ptb on the m-58 last with metal eyelets and no storm welt, and wingtips with metal eyelets and the plaza-like last (can't remember the number).

    I saw a few pics posted on social media but no talk of new or upcoming makeups.

    Inventory on popular sizes is totally gone. No updates as to replenish is strange and not the norm for BB Alden Shells. See sig if your an 8.5D

    I hope Alden continues to produce BB's unique styles for another retailer. I don't really fancy them, but I know plenty of gentlemen who do.

    I agree. I think that BB creates some nice and fresh designs. Their Unlined Shell LHSes are a fantastic model. I know some stores would pick those up in a heartbeat if they do end up getting dropped.

    My guess is BB has some type of exclusive rights to those Alden designs. It's possible these styles will be discontinued altogether.

    They do have some sort of rights on them, but I don't think they have a patent or anything, so if their account got dropped, they would be available to others...

    But I am hoping that they just resolve things with Alden...
