    Happens every time... When I write off any particular shoe model, Mac posts pics that make me want to buy them. These NSTs look great.

    I'll take a few with a proper camera this weekend. Those were (obviously, heh) sneaked at work with my phone

    FYI, Tassels HK is hosting an Alden trunk show this weekend and is apparently launching two "rare cordovan" models. Knowing Tassels these will likely be sold out to local customers long before they are available internationally, but guys may want to get in touch with Wallace or check the online site over the next few days.

    They were a Leffot makeup,
    http://leffot.com/2011/09/29/alden-x-leffot-day-tripper-boot/

    As a side note there is also a Ravello cap toe makeup by Tassels HK, but it is on the barrie and has a closed heel.

    On the other hand, I have narrowed my next Alden purchase down to two and I want your guys' opinion.

    It's either:

    Ravello LWB with crepe sole

    Cigar Cap Toe Boot with Commando sole,

    I'm currently leaning towards the cigar cap toe boot.

    The cigar captoe boot on commando soles are one of Alden's best makeup. That ravello photo looks good but at the end of the day it is a strange makeup to put on crepe

    I suppose it all depends on what you already have?

    I believe he is a poster here.

    it's incredibly low class he not only takes other peoples pictures without crediting them, but then watermarks them as his own. such a dirt bag move

    for those reading, I'm 95% sure that is a picture from zippy, and the size chart from reguy

    Go with the cigar model. The crepe sole on a shell LWB is nothing short of bizarre - at least to my eye. But that's just me.
