    I have black shell LWBs and wear them regularly, but unlike many SF members, I don't hate black shoes. I wear them with navy, grey, brown, and olive trousers from Epaulet and Howard Yount.

    If NRO includes Alden's in its next discount code and you're willing to try them, you'd be able to get 20-25% off. They usually seem to have #8 and black LWBs.

    My small collection of Aldens. I'm done for now unless I can get my hands on #4 or Ravello.

    Wow nice collection there. Lots of variety, each one different from the next.

    I haven't bought a pair of Alden in a year or so until the navy Chukkas. And I got that because I had a one off 25% discount code from J. Crew and was able to successfully use it on the pair.

    That's #8 cordovan on Grant. It's a Shoemart made up so no metal hooks on the upper.

    Dbear: It took a year or so to acquire all of them. It started with the Indys and I was pretty much buying a pair per month. Like I stated, not counting the Chukkas I bought earlier this week, I hadn't bought a pair of Aldens in a year or so. The shells were in stock and had no problem obtaining them when I was adding to the collection. I stopped because the prices of Aldens kept getting raised so I expanded into other brands. I wanted Chukkas for a while, but did not want to pay retail so I was hoping a pair would pop up on the 2nd list. When I got the J. Crew 25% off, and I saw my size in the blue suede, I ordered.

    FYI, if you have a JCREW card or want to apply for one, they offer 25% off a one time order between now and 9/11. Worked on Aldens. Code is:
    CYOA85JKE

    You're welcome!

    ^ Bah! I wonder if that was a one-shot-deal or if J. Crew is getting wise to the codes? I had 3 pairs in my cart, the discount was registering, but then I advanced to the next screen and the prices went back to full retail. Oh well, my wallet thanks you for saving me from myself.

    ^ are you using a jcrew card? My understanding is that it'll work with one. Thanks for the heads up Rob!

    I have this white suede chukka from Leffot that I want to spray navy blue or dark brown. The white just doesn't get enough wear. Anyone try spraying a pair of Alden's?

    http://blog.leffot.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/DSC_0027.jpg

    I've seen examples of brown shoes that were re-sprayed a darker brown and they looked great. Hoping for the same success. Any tips?
