    Perfect example of how elegant cordovan shoes can look, even on a commando sole. Thanks for this.

    Hampton last? These are very nice. Agree with the comment that Alden should do more of this style.


    Thank you.

    Anyone know where I might find a 10.5 E cigar LHS? Shoemart has 11 D (too much heel slippage) and 10.5 D (too tight in the front), but not 10.5 E -- which I think is the next size to try. They have it in color #8, so I might go with that if I can't find cigar.

    Generally the best place to look for E widths in stock cordovan shoes are the Alden branded stores (NY,SF,DC)

    Learning to love whiskey...

    Alden DC Whiskey Indy
    RRL low straights, soon to be hemmed for the peak denim season.

    Alden DC Whiskey balmoral wingtips. 10E fits perfectly in this (FWIW my 9.5E barrie longwings look essentially the same size as this shoe)

    I feel like whiskey is the toughest color to wear but also offers the most upside

    I know this is generally frowned upon, but I just posted a unicorn in B&S. See my sig. Sorry for the spam.

    Ha! Nothing ever gets by you guys. I'm not sure why my pants look like that. May have been the angle my knees were at when I took them. Might have been a slight breeze too.

    I'm considering a pair of Alden loafers for the first time. Do any of them have a cork innersole? If so, which ones?

    I'm looking for comfort and not just plain leather inner soles of a typical moccasin type construction.
