1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    I don't think these need much introduction: Alden 975 shell longwings in #8, size 11D (Barrie). They were purchased as seconds from Shoemart last year. You don't always know what you're going to get with Alden seconds (or firsts, for that matter), but there are really no issues with these. You can see that the right shoe has the beginnings of some creases in the vamp and there are some miscellaneous light scratches on the tongues - exactly the sort of wear that won't be noticeable after the first day's wear. No issues with the broguing, which I've seen on other Alden longwings. I've worn these around the office a couple of hours twice, but they haven't hit pavement. I don't really want to sell them, but since I don't have much call to wear them, I'm willing to pass them along here for $350 shipped (they're up to over $600 new these days). I'll throw in the trees and put them in an Alden box (they came in a no-name box without any of the accoutrements).
