    Agreed (Alden money) and agreed (mini lug sole). I don't have the patience to wait years for shoes.

    Since my summer rotation is pretty much unlined shell, I thought I'd mac these up on Saturday. Espresso pinch penny loafers and Alden #8 unlined LHS:

    The aldens look 2 sizes larger than the rancourts, lol. I don't know why that is.

    Looking great!

    I had considered the LHS in color 8, but I'd want unlined with antique edge and I don't think anyone does that currently do they?

    Either way, great summer lineup.

    Thanks!

    I don't think Alden has ever done antique edge on the unlined lhs. I remember reading that the unlined lhs model is exclusive to brooks brothers. So, it would have to be a special Brooks shoe.

    You can always do the sanding edge DIY job that others have done. In fact, I just applied some edge dressing to the pair above. The leather sole did look a little brown in parts. I will sometimes wear the aldens with casual suits so I like to keep the black edges. The rancourts with the light edges will work better with chinos and cotton pants.

    I was just looking at this photo again and I can't get over how beautiful these shoes/boots are. As redundant as they would be in my wardrobe, I desperately want both of these.

    I just had a pair of Alden for BB unlined no. 8 loafers resoled with antique soles & edges. I posted photos at the Alden thread. They make great summer loafers.

    I knew I had recently seen those but couldn't remembered who posted them (and was too lazy to go look, haha). They are beautiful photos and if I was able to get ahold of a pair of them for a good deal, would definitely consider doing this.

    Fransboone did a unlined color 8/antique loafer on leydon last recently. Most sizes are gone but it's probably one of the nicer loafers I've seen in a while. I'm keeping an eye on the restock on BB loafers in 11C and possiby grab them.

    Hey church, you wear your natural venetians yet? How do you like the new sole?

    I have twice already. They do feel more substantial than the stock sole that was there.
