    Snuff PCT boots from ShoeMart. About a year old. I have been amazed at the resiliency of Alden's suede. I have been a lurker here for a few years, and wanted to thank all of you for the expert advice given throughout this thread. You have all steered me in the right direction during my journey into fine footwear.

    Harsh lighting but these are Leffot Tankers from 4 years ago.

    They really need a good cleaning!

    Those are gorgeous, but are they not too small for you? That bulge on your pinky toe looks painful. I'd say you need to go up a width, and possibly a half size as well on future pairs.

    Is this just the angle playing tricks? Not sure the fit is off - looks ok to me.


    Are you sure those are Trubalance? Very nice pair maybe you meant Barrie?

    Agreed, when I got my Panerai Luminor GMT. I got it through a long time family friend who is a jeweler on 5th ave. most Panerai never make it to the display case.

    Looking very good in your Snuff Chukkas. The eyelets are a nice touch on them.



    Hey William, welcome to the non-lurking side! I lurked for a long time first also. Your Suede PCTs are looking great. I agree that Alden does a fantastic job with their suede. I was really reluctant to pay the Alden up charge for suede versus AE, but once I got one pair, it was over.



    Your Tankers are looking good. Give them a good scrub and then repost, would love to see how they look cleaned up. :)



    Hah. Life is sometimes full of regrets. But this shouldn't be one. The CitiTanker is great, but yours is superb as well. Enjoy it.

    -Mike

    Black Shell CT boots on commando have become my go to beater/foul weather boot. They have held up nicely this season...
