    This isn't directed at you and meant solely in jest (well but just slightly seriously) but sometimes I think we think a lot more about Alden than the people at Alden think about Alden, and sometimes it can approach an SNL Bears Superfans level of speculation. In a fight between Color 4 wing tips and ravello tankers, who wins? (Answer: Ditka)

    Really I just don't think Alden thinks that much about most of this.

    right. and the simplest answer may simply be that 50 pairs flipped on eBay per year isn't something that's going to raise flags for them / be something they even care about

    PSA: Alden irregulars just landed. Nothing exotic in 9 or 9.5. Not much in other shells either.

    I always have the same thought whenever I see somebody asking for opinions about the "defects" on brand new Alden shoes.

    I saw a dude near my office yesterday wearing Indys. I almost said something to him - but then I thought - he may just a be normal guy (unlike us addicts) who has 1 pair of boots in his closet and they just happen to be Indys because he had some gift cards from J. Crew.

    He may think a stranger approaching him on the street to comment about his boots is quite odd, or maybe he'd think I'm hitting on him. Either way, I didn't wanna be that guy, so I just admired the boots and walked on, thinking, I really do think about shoes wayyyyyy too much.

    :sarcasm:

    I didn't see it either! I did however see the 4060 on 11.5D.... although, they're probably gone by now

    Was def. just the 12D. If it had been the 11.5 I would have been calling. But I figured with the DC cigar captoe it'd be to close for now. I was talking myself into thicker socks for the B&M 12D though.
