Just left Alden DC:

  • They have a sweet new make-up - pebblegrain/scotch grain LWB w a commando sole (I am not buying any new long wings and I recently bought a pebble grain split toe from Unionmade but these shoes were very tempting)
  • They have a whiskey PTB in the pipeline - ordered; this leads to the final point...
  • I am rethinking my general dislike of whiskey as the colors get darker. I have a pair of the original "mistake" order from Alden DC (ravello medallion cap toe on the Plaza). The color of that ravello is the same color as the current wiskey (and the current ravello is much darker - almost to the point where it could be mistaken for color 8).

The Ravello short wing from LeatherSoul is a more current make up right? It looks pretty light to me, I would say not even close to #8.

Ravello, whiskey, cigar all vary from batch to batch. The ravello longwngs I got from Leffot earlier this year are pretty light and are only slightly darker than my whiskey cordovan. However the ravello tassels I bought last year and are pretty dark; they are closer to Ralph Lauren's Marlow/Darlton "brown" than anything else. Cigar seems to be relatively consistent these days, but I would say my cigar longwings I got from AoC in April are a bit ligher than the cigar captoe boots I bought from Alden of DC last year. Similarly whiskey ranges from a "natural" cordovan look to a shiny "butterscotch" color (which is my favorate variation) to a deep caramel that isn't too disimilar to the color of your shortwings.

I thought whiskey and cigar PTB’s were standard makeups there. They always have had them when I have been in.

That pebble grain sound tempting though….

Anything good on sale there?

When it comes to suede, I think lined vs unlined makes a pretty big difference. With an unlined shoe, you can feel the soft, buttery suede molding all around your foot. Whereas with a lined suede shoe or boot, it just feels a little stiffer and takes away part of the appeal of wearing suede IMHO.

Beauties. I'm in the market for some Alden captoe bals, I think. Are these #8? I've decided I really like the overall simplicity of the style, but also the fact that the captoe seems to allow for some nice color variation down the road. Enjoy these.

Suede for a sunny Thursday...


Nice laces.

Finally, recent shot of Whiskey LWBs.
