    Thats a damn fine choice. Is the tongue lined? I thought Alden didn't line the tongue of their shell models but then again I may be totally mistaken.

    Most Alden shell boot tongues are unlined, but that's not always the case. That said, the majority of mine (6/8) have lined tongues:

    • Plain Toe Boot Black Shell x ??? (TSM irregular) (45067) - unlined tongue
    • Plain Toe Boot Cigar Shell x Frans Boone (45146HC) - unlined tongue
    • Cap Toe Boot Ravello Shell x DC (40644HC) - unlined tongue
    • Cap Toe Boot Cigar Shell x AoM (4070) - unlined tongue
    • Norwegian Stitch Boot Color 8 Shell x AoM (40218HC) - unlined tongue
    • Indy Boot Color 8 Shell x J.Gilbert (86968HC) - unlined tongue
    • Wingtip Boot Color 8 Shell x DC (4461H) - lined tongue
    • Medallion Cap Toe Boot Black Shell x TSM (3939) - lined tongue

    Great shoes. Getting increasingly annoyed with EP re my pre-order that's almost two years old, yet they've filled orders in the meantime.

    ^ (Re Alt Weins) Are you a non-stock size? If they haven't given you your shoes yet received unallocated pairs in your size, that would be quite annoying. If Alden just hasn't delivered your pair while delivering others, that's almost always Alden's doing and not any retaler's. Either way I feel your pain.
