    Wondering this as well... Just got my navy suede's and am scared to death to mess them up. Any recommendations would be great.

    honestly, aldens always have some quirk. yes, its disappointing. some pairs piss me off more than others. with this one, i think its not so bad. if the un-excised piece is already perforated, you can carefully use a safety pin on an angle to pierce it and then withdraw it. if its not perforated and their punch was poorly constructed (seems to be the case), you should sharpie it and forget it was ever like that. i just got a pair of quoddy from ls and the moc stitching on one of the shoes was poorly aligned such that the white underside of the suede was showing. i used alden brown wax to recolor the part and it looks fine.

    Not custom runs.

    With this, you'll just have to be patient. I'm in the same boat...I love the CXL chukkas too. Hopefully next year...

    I take solace each day knowing I'm that much closer to receiving the coveted ravello day tripper

    I've got a pair of this same shoe style only in sand suede. The brown part isn't a hole that wasn't fully punched. It's the back edge of the facing which probably should have been trimmed another quarter of an inch or so. On my shoes, the color is almost the same and to be honest, I didn't notice it until today when I went looking for it.

    Nick from B Nelson suggested Meltonian. Alden customer service suggested Scotch Guard.

    Anyone know where I can find a suede flex-welt chukka -- but on the barrie last? I'm wary of the Leydon.


    edit:

    I realize J.crew has suede chukkas on the Barrie but I hate the crepe sole. I'm looking for a lighter suede, in sand / tan / camel range of colors. Snuff is as dark as I'd like to go for this shoe.
