    Not sure on the exact suede as they are second hand and were not in the original box. They are supposedly a make up from Alden of Carmel.

    I had my eye on the AF80 (shortwing) a while back but wasn't sure about going with the commando sole. By the time I made up my mind, my size was gone. I regret not pulling the trigger for a wet weather shoe. I'd go with the short wingtip. (but that's partly bc I already have the LWB in color 8)

    Yeah... I was told the same thing by another store as well. I needed 975s (Color 8 LWB) in size 7.5D, and there were none on hand in the store, nor at Alden. They are doing a run of them as we speak, I guess.

    You don't even need digital cameras, man...though I carry one at all times. Iphone 4 and 5 take great pictures with natural lighting.

    Go with AF80 if your primary use is with a suit.

    Are all of the Alden 401 boots the same? I've seen some places call it black calf, and others call it black CXL. What is it?

    I bought these at Alden DC this past summer.


    Taking better photos of my shoes is the only good reason I can think of currently for upgrading my iPhone.

    Can I assume any Alden shoe with crepe or commando could easily be resoled to double leather or water lock double leather ?
