    I have been keeping my eye out for a casual alden shoe to wear this summer along with my cigar PTB. I was kind of hoping to find something in suede and luckily snagged this pair off theshoemart irregulars lising for a decent price. A little dark but otherwise a perfect shoe for summer. Super comfortable right out of the box too.

    Reverse Chamois, unlined, plantation crepe sole

    I looked around a little but couldn't determine who is retailing this shoe makeup??

    Had pretty good luck with the irregulars in the beginning but not as of late. Last one I ordered had a cut 1/3 down the small toe area and just had stitching to keep it closed. Too bad it was a #8 NST boot in an Aberdeen(?) but alas, it went back.

    Do you fellas know of anyone carrying suede LWBs now? Like the ones Epaulet had (they're sold out, if I'm not mistaken). Thanks.

    Alden Madison Ave shows these on its website, though they are a different color:

    I covet these (along with some of their PTB suede), so buy an extra pair in 10.5E or 11D that won't fit you and then sell them to me cheap.:)

    Great. Thanks for the lead, Frank. I'll see if I can slip an extra pair past my sharp-eyed wife.

    What size are you? I have a BNIB pair sitting in my closet that I just haven't found the occasion to wear yet. I may be willing to part ways with them...

    I think Epaulet will be restocking these for the summer if I'm not mistaken...not sure when they will arrive in-store though. It's probably too late now, but Leather Soul recently ran a pre-order for these in tan, snuff, and dark brown suede. That was great for me because I was able to order a pair in tan suede in size 12B, which no store would ever stock on a normal basis.

    Ref. Re-Order Navy Blue Suede Tassel Loafer on Hampton Last

    Just got a friendly answer by mail from Colin / Leffot that no re-order will be on schedule actually.

    The only left size is a 8 D
