Yenni at B&M continues to impress with their make-ups! Just got these Color 8 9-Eyelet Straight Tip boots and am debating whether I will experiment with these and sun fade them. Love the reverse welt, antique edges, and double waterloc soles! Renovateur and some Guarded Goods laces await these!

On which days do you plan on leaving them outside in the sun? Also, do you have a dog and does it bite?
Since we're still WFH, I was considering doing it a few hours a day in the backyard, making sure to rotate and possibly bring back in periodically to recondition. No dog, but doesn't mean they won't be exposed to other critters/creatures like these dang lizards and squirrels.

Does the snuff vary in color or is this just a trick of the lighting? I find the color of the first pair more appealing than the more reddish second pair

It has varied a bit over the years, the top one is much more akin to the modern shade that it has taken on. The bottom looks more like the Snuff that was offered around the 2010 - 2013 timeframe.

Has anyone heard that Alden no longer makes an NST Barrie shoe? Aberdeen only.

I haven't heard this. I recently purchased NST shoes on Barrie and on Plaza. I believe several others are in production.

Didn't make sense to me either. Thanks.

I normally browse the Viberg thread, but have recently developed an itch for more Aldens. I just received these black shell DeRosa cap toes from Alden Madison over the weekend, and am quite impressed so far. They’re fairly lightweight and comfortable, and a great value overall. These are my first Barrie lasted shoes in the E width (10E), which fit much better than my others that are 10D.
