    Funny that they're listing the color as "Repello".
    Repollo is a type of stain resistant finish; not a color.

    just about. Alden prices circa 2010. yoox has a 10% discount floating around. $385 shipped for that shoe is not bad at all

    The vamps are only slightly mismatched in shade, but its very very hard to tell in natural light. I think the lamp I had on the shoes while taking pics made the reflection on each vamp appear significantly different.

    Even so, it just makes the shoes more interesting IMO. Wear them in good health!

    Different names for the same color suede:

    "Milkshake"
    "Marble"
    "Repello"

    Any others?
