    Not CXL. Alden uses very lightweight CXL and it the break and loose grain is out of control. I'd recommend the same leather that goes on the black stock model 401. It's nice.

    I've had alden eyelets come loose. Also, I like the idea of the lace actually going through the quarter, not just around a hook that is superficially attached to the quarter.

    What's the recommendation on a Alden Aberdeen Suede and Chromexcel Tassel loafer? I am not familiar with these two leathers in a loafer. I sized down a half before on Shell Tassels and they ultimately were too tight.

    I go down a width on the tassels and it worked well.

    PSA - if you like the Color 8 Leffot Naval boot, a nice looking alternative popped up at Supply & Advise today (Miami)

    Hi guys,I want to add a suede boots to my collection. What I want is a versatile boots can easily dress up or down, and I want to pair them with slacks and jeans. I current have a black shell PT boots, color 8 Chukka, Indy 403, and a tan suede Indy. Can you guys give me some suggestions?
    Is contextclothing roy boot in snuff suede a good choice? I think it is special coz it is always out of stock. What's the different between a roy boot and a normal plaintoe suede boots (I think TSM carrying a similar one).Thanks a lot,Lee

    Epaulet was the last vendor to offer this pre-order and it sold out instantly. A few pages back I recall reading that black shell/antique wasn't going to be an available configuration through Alden anymore, similar to color 8 and brass hardware.

    You'd have to get a Ryden Boot Remix going.
