    Agree that it’s strange it’s not more common.

    Ironically you can seem to get the commando sole in every other make up other than the classic 405 calfskin. Even though that's the one everybody loves!

    My only problem is that I won't be able to break these out until perhaps Monday due to rain today and through the weekend.

    These are great! Where did you buy these and how many years did you have to wait to get them? Can't decide which I like best, the NST, U-tip or V-tip. I guess I'll have to eventually buy one of each style (not necessarily shell).

    I'm curious to know this as well. I'm not a huge fan of the NST and am more of a fan of the U & V Tip. If i had to choose, i'd go U Tip before V tip.

    THat being said, the shoes pictured are absolutely gorgeous and i'd be happy to own and wear them. They just wouldn't be my first choice. It would be like choosing between a filet at Morton's, Ruth's Chris or Emeril's Demonico

    Hmm... sounds like a New Orleans neighbor. If you are, I’m wondering if you’ve entrusted your Aldens to a local cobbler for any minor stitching issues or the like. I just received a pair of Ravello LHS (second-hand) with a tiny stitch coming loose and don’t want to have to ship them off if I don’t have to.

    Those cigar tassel mocs you are selling are amazing. Too bad (and good thing, probably) that I'm not 11D.

    Yep...i live on the Northshore. I don't have a local cobbler, but have used a guy in Kenner in the past to fix an old pair of J&M's. The store was an absolute mess, so i am not sure i'd use him for a pair of Alden's or AE to be honest. I only recently starting wearing nicer shoes than Cole Haan/J&M, so i've not encountered the need to have any small issues to be addressed.

    Do you know who is going to carry Alden's locally now that M. Golberg closed their business?

    Thanks. Yeah, too bad they’re not an 11.5!
