    thanks a lot, they have great prices, but unfortunately not in my size. i had wrote them a question about the exact us size, look what they have answered me:

    "Dear Customer,
    We apologize but we have examined in ns. storage size available now is just a tv news. 11 Usa (45 Ita )

    However, the data transmission within the calzatuta alden plain derby
    11 C / E 13132Y shell cordovan Brown."

    and I thought my English was bad :D

    This past February I purchased a pair of the cigar longwings from ShoeMart. They're lovely shoes, and I've worn them several times, but one thing about them kind of bugs me, and I wanted to check and see if I'm tweaking over nothing. Most of the pictures I've seen of the shoes elsewhere on the web (e.g. http://www.arichinnerlife.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/Cigar-LWB-1.jpg) show them as a uniform (cigar) color, but mine have a somewhat uneven coloration, particularly on the quarters near the eyelets. In this thread (post 23060) I've seen the word "antique" mentioned a couple of times, which comes closest to what I'm describing. Is this indeed how they come, at least from ShoeMart? (See also post 1514, page 101).

    Just an fyi - I ordered Alden Indy boots 403 from the NRO sale and had no problems. Never had to check on anything, ordered directly from their website. They sent an email receipt, a UPS notification of shipment next day and I received the boots within the next couple of days. No problems... nice to get 25% off and a Happy 4th of july...

    Snuff suede always looks different in different photos. This looks normal to me.

    ^the finishing on the LS models is quite nice. The last three boots I've received have been impressively constructed.

    Those saddle shoes look a little "golf shoe" for me, personally.

    The crepe material is black. Maybe he meant that it is dyed black? I have seen other crepe soles in other colors (even as light as beige).

    Yeah, I wore them once and someone asked "where are you golfing." I basically only wear these shoes with black polos and some color pant/short (white, nantucket red, denim), but since I wear a black polo pretty frequently in the summer, I end up wearing this shoe quite a bit

    that's great and i'm happy to hear someone has had a good experience with them.

    meanwhile, I'm nearly a week out from ordering and they still haven't shipped mine.

    I'm pretty much convinced it's because I questioned why I couldn't just pick them up in store instead of having them ship them all of 12 miles to my house.
