    Been watching that on the 7.5 seconds list for a couple of months. Can anyone here pull off the blue wingtip boot with a suit or other work clothes?

    Actually from Context's recent run on commando. Thanks for the kudos.

    Fantastic! Tankers really work well with the antique edge.

    Thanks, my thoughts exactly. When I saw antique and commando, I had to pounce.

    No more shoe purchases for 2016...I hope. [​IMG]

    Has anyone been able to apply the 20% off? I tried and had no luck.

    These look terrific. Well aged Whiskey. Sweet .. Good pairing as well, shows off the beauty of the Whiskey Shell.

    non alden shoe question, but has anyone had luck with a 'whiskey' shade cream (saphir maybe?) to help mitigate some darkish spotting? I recently received some "natural/whiskey like" shell boat shoes that have a couple spots I'd like to tone down if possible, but have no real experience with whiskey and the associated creams etc.

    thanks in advance

    Intense sunset today after work with AF53s. Also experimenting with some gap lacing to relieve pressure with my higher instep, so far seems to be better for my foot.

    I don't think Alden is constantly developing new lasts but I think from time to time they develop new lasts for different foot types in different market. The Tom last and Tru-Flare last they developed for the Asian market are the ones I am familiar with.

    Some proper images of my latest aquisition. Color 8 tankers on commando, my first NST. I've grown to love the commando after picking up the snuff wingtip boot last year. This makeup was perfect as it paired commando with the antique edge, two things I was hoping for.
