    1. Bonafe >>>> Alden in every aspect (finishing, handwelted, etc) for relatively the same price.

    2. The model I showed is no longer being produced.

    3. Alden does not do one off MTOs.

    Completely agree. I'm just staring at that shot of the black derby, unblinking.

    I'm pretty salty that you guys didn't order any of those in 12.

    the monkey boots are a rugged style but dare I say they look refined on the site

    I think they are both - rugged in design and refined in execution. I am loving them more every time I look. If I could remotely justify another brown casual boot I would jump on 'em, because I think they would fit my wide-ish feet very, very well.

    @Leaves - stupid question - are these burgundy or brown? I swear they looked one way on my office computer and another way at home.

    Roger,

    These are brown but with the twist. Etrusco color is difficult to describe, it is a brown base but it has some reddish undertones. It resembles burnt sienna.
    I have some pictures here under natural light

    I'm going to change the laces on my etrusco wholecuts to a dark brown. I'm not crazy about the light laces they came with.

    Agreed. A guy could get quite far in life with simply that lineup in his closet
