    Nothing whatsoever embarrassing about that. Consider the Alden for BB version PTB too.

    that doesn't sound like a simple question to me. simple questions:

    what last is it on?
    what kind of sole does it have?
    what color shell is it? (#8, #4, ravello, etc)

    not-simple questions:
    what hue of cigar is it?
    how will i feel when i put them on?

    seriously, what do you expect his answer to your "hue" question to be? seriously, give me three to five possible answers to your "hue of a cigar longwing" question.

    if you're asking that kind of question, i'm not surprised he gave you the cold shoulder. buy locally if you need your longwings to be a particular hue of cigar.

    Finally got a picture. I've worn these (4) times. Would this be disconcerting to anyone else?

    Follow-up: if I contact Alden, do I contact the home-office or the dealer I went through (Yenni/Seattle)?

    BB PTB in black shell were my first Aldens :slayer:

    The exposed eyelets and flat welt set them apart from the standard PTB.

    Got any pics? Also, where do I buy? I just searched BrooksBrothers.com for Alden and got nothing.
