    Will you wear them these days in NYC?
    Are these OK for summer?

    Don't know about the relationship Alden / suede.
    Have a look at Carmina. Their suede tassels are amazing.

    They aren't the most summery shoes but I will wear them a lot basically August - May or June. I have a lot of Alden suede and other shoes like Quoddys that get casual wear in the summer. Most people on this thread seem to wear their cordovan boots (no matter what color) all year round.

    I thought about wearing them today given it is mild and sunny out, but I went with whiskey Indys instead.

    Of course.
    It was a simple suggestion since some of them really do look nice.

    Anyone know where I can find a cigar shell belt around $200? Alden wants $270.

    I've been thinking of ordering those when the Bureau restocks. Any chance you can post more pics?

    Thanks,

    They are first quality. Also, I ordered these with shoe trees which arrived installed in the shoes so someone definitely missed this. Again, I'm not really that upset, Yenni is going to contact Alden early this coming week and see what the options are. I still have nothing but praise for J. Gilbert.
