    I bought a pair of Aldens today too. Fourth pair already this year. Hopefully I can control myself from here on out. Only 1 or 2 more models that I'm interested in.

    That being said, I don't regret today's purchase at all, and suspect that this sentiment will be reinforced when I receive them.

    Pics when they arrive, and I'll do the same.

    I'm in a "There aren't any other Aldens I want" phase too. Which would be great, except that I'm after a couple of other makes now. So no net savings. Also clouded by the fact that I have two pair of Aldens waiting delivery (#8 tanker from Leffot and Modified kudu Indy from Moulded). I am successfully passing on that #8/scotch grain saddle from Leffot, for now...

    Bakes, what did you order?

    This is on the Barrie, right? A very elegant looking shoe.

    Man, I hope my #8 lightens up like yours one day. My pair was almost black brand new :lol

    Thanks for all the compliments, gents! I was surprised and happy to see that the reddish hue came out on the Ravello in sunlight!

    Were the tankers a pre-order?

    wonderful! I've got to leave this thread immediately, or I'll spend a fortune on Aldens in the future. You are too inspiring...

    How does that list work? Is there a deposit or do you pay in full up front?

    #8 captoe boots about two months in. They got the method and some Reno two days ago. Pardon the lighting in the wee hours of the morning.
