    Okay, I've got an idea for a make-up and wanted to see what you all thought. Basically the Plaza wingtip boot in #8 with the following features:

    1. Single leather oak sole
    2. Close heel welt
    3. Blind eyelets all the way up
    4.Pinking
    5. No punching in the leather. Like the Vass austerity brogue.

    Opinions?


    we talked about the eyelets a couple pages back. if you already have a boot with full eyelets all the way up and you like it, ok, but I think it's kind of a pain

    Point taken.
    Other than that detail, what are your thoughts?

    does the $650 for those Whiskeys reflect Aldens new pricing? it seems the same as what they were charging before.

    I ordered from nro in mid Jan and I'm still waiting. They won't let me cancel the preorder, but I complained so much they upgraded me to next day shipping. In the meantime I already bought chromexcel indys from epaulet and am happily wearing then often [​IMG]

    Thanks! about $400

    You inspired me to make a trip over to the Alden store to buy a pair. Looks like a great pair of shoes with khakis and grey pants (and even various shorts) for the summer

    I was kinda thinking shorts too. No socks? Is that weird?

    We kicked off the Alden 125th Anniversary Celebration by launching the Ravello Shell Cordovan "Hunting Boot" which sold out within a week.

    To continue the Alden 125th Anniversary Celebration, this month, we are launching the #8 Scotch Grain Shell Cordovan Long Wing.

    [​IMG]

    In addition to our regular Alden MTOs, stay tuned for more Alden 125th Anniversary MTOs in 2010.


    Those hunting boots are nice! I would have picked those up in a heartbeat...

    Big thanks to everyone who ordered today! We'll have our hands full with shipping Longwings tomorrow!

    Epaulet no size 7 [​IMG] ? i'd kop that whiskey one quick.

    Sorry, we didn't have a 7D on the order, but I'll be putting in a reorder for early Spring '11 tomorrow. Drop me a PM if you're interested in a unit then (sorry it takes so long).

    [​IMG]

    Already sold out in 10 1/2?


    Sorry about that - it was the first size to go. But I've got a few more tricks up my sleeve for later in the season [​IMG]
