    Yes, the Tremont is like a svelte version of the Barrie.

    Those Atoms getting shown off look great. So the Atom is Alden's short wing, essentially? I like that it's on something other than the Barrie. Makes it distinctive.

    Not exactly a short wing, but similar. Per leffot:

    There are no 9D or 9.5D available in the #4 Atom. Just wanted to save someone the time and trouble of calling. :(

    I think the Atom is a poorly designed shoe. The line that goes from where the lace supports attach to the vamp is a strange feature that causes misbalance and a funny look.

    I think it looks pretty cool - different from the longwing and the standard wingtip - here is another good example of the style

    Alden makes a normal "wingtip" balmoral

    http://www.aldenshoes.com/Store/DrawProducts.aspx?CategoryID=95&ParentID=94&PageID=&Action=

    And they will also do a "shortwing" in a special makeup that is very similar to the RL Marlows

    http://leathersoulhawaii.com/2011/09/12/alden-shoes-8-shortwing-for-style-forum-lsw-lsbh/

    I've only seem the "Atom" done for Leffot and Tassels - it is very similar to the Church's Grafton I posted earlier
    http://www.tassels.com.hk/en/made_to_order_details.php?id=66

    The Obscura captoes also borrowed heavily from the old Atom (they basically but a captoe up front instead of a wingtip pattern)

    Act fast, and you can get the Aldens off J Crew for 25% off. They allowed me to add them to cart, and 'HOLIDAY' still works even though the deadline has passed.

    Barney's has a black shell chukka in 10.5 for $409 (formerly $555).

    Is there any way to protect snuff suede from raw denim transfer?

    Nice looking shoes.

    I believe these are Atoms, here in snuff suede, crepe sole, Barrie last. Courtesy of Frans Boone. The price was higher than I would have liked (buy Aldens in the US), but I do like the shoes.
