    They've noticeably darkened up just from brushing the heck out of them after each wear. I love the color.

    quick question.

    i think my next pair of aldens will be either a cigar longwing OR a pair of wingtip boots in natural chromexcel, in the barrie last (or grant, but i know that's rare) and leather sole, preferably with the slimmer welt that comes on some barrie boots (like the LS chromexcel barrie wingtip boot).

    i know shoemart sells a cigar longwing, and epaulet sells the brixton boot in natural CXL. are there any other shops/collabs i should be aware of in either of these configurations? thanks!

    Someone really likes his cordovan shoes... I guess having a fetish for cordovan isn't that strange... some of us might be half way there!

    Hello, I'm looking to a Cigar Chukka for my next pair of cordovans. Does any one have pictures of them after they have been worn/used for a while? Thanks...

    I stumbled across this video when searching YouTube for 'shell cordovan'. I don't think these are Aldens but had to share anyway.  Not sure what the deal is?...:

     


    Um, ok. Gross.
