    Would PTB's and Longwings be a good shoe with chinos/Kakis?

    Another good idea...i filled out the online form for the list but apparently that is unreliable, so I will give them a call tomorrow. Hopefully I can get lucky!

    I have found some great deals on ebay, but sometimes you have to wait a little. Good luck and know your sizes.

    if you can get a hold of Mark ask him for details about whatever shoe on the 2nds list that you have in mind to purchase. I've had good luck with minimal, sometimes nonexistent, defects, but others have had problems and would say 2nds are more trouble than they're worth...

    Looking for a pair of Aldens in tan suede, but coming up empty handed.

    My preferred shoe would be this longwing with plantation crepe soles. (apparently a customer's special order, featured a long while ago on the Inventory Magazine site; photo from there)

    [​IMG]

    I wonder if there is any interest in a MTO for that longwing? I think the contrast of the tan suede with the planation crepe sole looks great!

    But since this particular make-up, and tan suede longwings in general, seem to be out of stock everywhere, I would be willing to go for a PTB or chukka (in that order) in the tan suede.

    Anyone know where I might find such creatures? (btw 11.5d in Trubalance)

    looking to buy a couple of pairs of shoes from TSM but wanted to know if they readily have the shoes in stock for immediate dispatch. I have emailed them but have not had any response plus i am based in the UK. How long do they usually take to dispatch orders and how quick is delivery on average within the USA?

    Looking to get a pair of longwings in natural and ptb in cigar cordovan

    April showers bring May flowers, and little welts on my shell cordovan shoes.

    I've had good results with the Pegasus leather on the Black & Tan Indy boots from Epaulet, but I can't really wear them with a suit. What do my fellow Alden lovers wear on rainy days?
