Well, after looking at all of @mdubs blue suede, I had to.....I mean I couldn't help it. These just in and as long as shipping was the same cost threw the closeout boots in for good measure. The boots are a stretch for me as far as styling, but I kind of like them.View attachment 1435532View attachment 1435533
Congratulations Dog! Very awesome looking and love them Navy Suede Tassels!

I absolutely love that you went ahead and included a picture of a flower, absent of any shoes in the shot. Bravo.
The shoes are there. Just look beyond the flowers :)
Omg, you're right! Brilliant.
LoL. Mission accomplished! Really was trying to highlight the flowers while keeping it SF relevant! :) Glad that you didn’t notice the shoes and glad that you did!!!

Good pickup on the boots. Those are one of my first pair of Aldens. They don't get a ton of wear, but they look great and the Hampton last makes them fit well with slacks and a sport coat where Barrie boots might be a bit much.

Posting this to gauge interest, working on a collaboration with Alden shop.
Here are the specs on the proposed boot:
Brown Alpine grain Cap toe boot
Aberdeen last
270 welt
Single waterlock
Antique edge
Starburst heel
Brass eyes and hooks

Don't have pricing as of yet, but need at least 6 to make a go. Anyone in?

Wait a second - you are willing to wear blue suede tasseled loafers, but think wingtips are a bridge too far?!
:rotflmao:
But suede tassel loafers are.....well plain in appearance, even if blue, whereas wingtips are "busy" (to my eye) I love the wings posted by people here, just can't seem to like them on me :)

Very cool. If I didn't have three other pairs of Adelaides, I'd be all over these.
Thank you very much. This fits my dressy bill nicely and I can't wait to see them in the closet and on foot.

Very nice looking shoe.
Thank you! Ealdwine does some really unique shoes and I love their energy.

Congrats Savvy! Beautiful make up, I'd be all over it for an office shoe if I could make Hampton last work for me (I can't--I'm flat as kansas)


Congrats! That is a Grail shoe for me, its been on my list since I started lurking here on the Alden thread. I hope LS or AOM runs them again. Right now not looking promising.

Fantastic looking make-up. Very tempted to jump in on one of the milkshake suede Boot make-ups that have been popping up.
Thank you very much! Hampton is one of my favorites and I have just barely enough instep to make it work on my right foot. It's a really special makeup and am honored to have it in a run. I hope I am pair #1 :nodding:

Impeccable! If I didn't already have seven pre-orders I'd be all over these. What a great makeup.
Madness! I hope the other pre-orders treat you well. It's really going to be a cool shoe.

Not blasphemous at all, even if untrue ;)

Alden's black shell does look very good. That sheen just makes it pop.
Hahah, well I love my 8 tassels, but the black shell (and BB foxing) on this design is SO classy.

Black just mean business and the tassels just give it that flair; it's a fun combo. I'm probably the only young guy in America proudly rocking Alden tassels like I belong in the old boys club.

Nice makeup. Are you really sockless or wearing no see socks?

If sockless, I have found that the leather rubs my foot a bit funny without socks. How do you combat this?
