@MoosicPa Those are amazing LWB's. Congratulations on your rare Alden treasure
@MoosicPa wow those are amazing. Pretty jealous
Looking great in your Color 8 Parajumpers. The Grant Last looks great with the CT Boot pattern.
Those are looking great, very Chromexcel-ly.
Jeab, you have a very nice collection of boots going on there. Enjoy them! I believe that your Cigar PTBs are more likely from Alden SF, especially with the text written on the bottom there.
Those are quite classy there my friend, a great shoe to wear with a suit. You are correct, the Aberdeen is Alden's longest and narrowest last. It is said to be shaped like an A. The Hampton is a sleeker last for Alden and typically fits pretty closely to the Aberdeen. I wear 11B on both lasts... Enjoy your new boots in good health!
The Ravello LWB is always one of my favorites. Great with Dark or Tan Edging...
Yeah, i wouldn't have ever guessed that to be Color #8 either. Looks like an honorary Ravello to me...
LS Chcoc Tankers
Those Chocolate Suede Tankers are soo nice. Nice Rust Slacks, but wow those are loud!
Thanks Mike. Not quite as loud in person. Lighting accentuated the red
Those are cool.
Regarding color 8, I think that's what you get when Alden doesn't add their eggplant dye to color 8 shell.
yeah that looks like it's an the range of "non-Alden" #8 shell but there's a big variance inherently there. for instance here is a pic of C&J Burgundy shell (#8) and 2 pairs of AE #8 loafers. the C&J are older and have patina'd to a different color but the 2 others are pretty different
note: I do not have 3 feet
You're not actually considering wearing those are you? They need to be preserved at the National Alden Archives so future generations can learn from it. All kidding aside, super cool make up. Congrats!
Excellent - Congrats those are great! that is how some of my AE #8 shell looks and some older Florscheim I have -
Damn, this is good. Nice job Don !
Here are a couple of older pics, but they have been fairly well worn.
Wowser! (Sorry, I won't spoiler this one)
Went with my J Crew tobacco waxed Longwings today. These were my first pair of Aldens... still love these even though they are not shell.
As usual, exceptionally well done Don L!
