    anyone has a link showing the different welt options along with different colors available?

    I am thinking about a golden brown or natural CXL unlined Leeds. Trying to to figure what other customization are possible for unique, casual look for casual wear.

    I prefer the single strap and medallion on the captoe. Love my burgundy shell Franciscan.

    Here is where I am so far on a possible Clark Street MTO for the upcoming sale, any suggestions, comments?


    golden brown CXL
    chili flat welt
    light brown transparent edge dressing
    leather midsole
    dainite outsole
    blind eyelets
    tone on tone piping if possible, brown/black if not (not sure whats available)
    cream/tan upper and welt stitching.
    brown leather insole



    slight inspiration pulled from these, though they are brown cxl

    I would do blind eyelets (like the photo) but otherwise those sound awesome!

    Yeah I was kind of thinking it was overkill

    These are Alden, correct? I don't think AE's mock stitching looks like this. Definitely not the pic on their site.

    Again, love those Franciscan's. Really want to do a pair as I like the 333 last. Question though. Has anyone requested Indy lining? And if so did the price jump to $495 or was it just an upcharge? For example, and extra $50 or something. Sure wish I had gotten in on the fun with the no cost upgrades.

    Yeah it's Alden, not concerned with the stitch looking the same as the Alden. Kind of just showing the look of the contrast stitch welt and upper. The style will be different looking overall, just drew inspiration from a few spots.

    I am hoping to end up with a perfect all weather shoe I can wear with jeans. I am debating between the Golden Brown and Natural CXL, I think they both look great.

    OK. I wasn't implying you were concerned...it was more for me. If that WAS the Clark St., I'd order at least 2 pair. Sheew. Just saved me some money.

    The cost is based on the leather of the upper; interesting point though. Are you considering a "regular" upper with the independence lining?
