    Go Ravens, indeed. I root for three teams: the Buffalo Bills, the Ravens (to the extent it doesn't interfere with my Bills), and whoever is playing the Patriots on a given day.


    Nice-looking wtb.


    I love the Plaza and Leydon. I've got the opposite problem, where I need a wide width. Wish I was a D in the worst way...but that would be bad for my wallet!


    I'm with Alcibiades. Aldens go well with everything. I wear suits to work most days, and rock my Earnest Sewn in evenings and on the weekends. I like the versatility of the PTB, for example. It's never the trendiest thing on the block, but it works for me with both.



    Thanks, Uncle.


    I would return those guys, personally.

    These shouldn't have made it out of the factory. Definite return.

    In fact, eating horse meat was quite common at one time in the USA. It has fallen out of fashion in the last few decades however.

    Horses are not killed just for their skins.

    Hey everyone. Quick question for you. I was looking for a pair of Alden wing tip boots but can't seem to find anything currently in stock in a makeup that I like. I know that there are several companies that do collaborations with Alden but don't have an extensive list.

    So if anybody knows of anything that looks somewhat like this I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know.

    Thank you!

    Returned those shoes to a local J Crew. Not only did they put in an overnight order, for free, they gave me a $50 giftcard. Not bad.

    Looks like the J. Gilbert "Tan Wing Tip Boot." See Alden-of-Carmel's website for photos.

    Definitly return if it bothers you at all .I have a pair of ravello that has a very similar thing .Seems to be in the leather itself but I only paid 90 bucks for mine .At that price it is hardly noticeable.

    I need help with a cordovan boot that has a waxy finish . I brush and brush and it doesn't get the bright shine that I see in all these other pics. They are C and J not Alden's but shouldn't they still shine up? Thank-you for the help
