    Finally was able to pick up my suede wingtips. They're gorgeous.

    Thanks guys! Gotta say I was a bit on the fence but in person they are stunners. Even with a little something on the vamp they're keepers.

    Looking great Don! The Ravello NST is truly a special shoe to behold. Enjoy them my friend!
    Looking terrific my friend!!! I am very much looking forward to receiving my pair!
    Sorry to hear that you were unable to land a Cigar Straight Tip Boot, but they have quite a list now associated with them. Hopefully you are able to get on the next run or the next-next run. However, I am very glad to hear that you were able to secure your sizing. That is the most important accomplishment that you can achieve. -Mike

    Hi fellas, I need some help!

    I need another pair of Alden shoes for summer casual one and I'm thinking of chukka or indie boots but In my county 28 + degree and it's quite hot for me! So what can you recommend me as I have unlined plain toe blucher and even in this shoes it's quite hot!!!

    Thank you!

    X post from EP thread. Nothing new here for you guys...I need to step up my Alden Shell game but still can't land on a last and our TO market is impossible for trying on models.

    For warm weather, unlined suede chukkas can't be beat. I just happen to be wearing mine this morning.

    Unlined anything should be good. I think Indys would make a terrible hot weather shoe.

    They are on the Snap last. They fit just like the Hampton, but with a rounder toe. They're clearly not on the Aberdeen.

    I actually have this pair.

    Thanks for the correction. I was thinking they would be on same last as model 971/972. Anyone feel free to PM me if you have questions about the Amex offer.

    Nicely done. Those appear to be the Alden for Ben Silver split toe tassel. Yes?
