    Use the above product (in color "cordovan") on the shoe you wish to darken.

    Do local Alden stores (specifically Alden of DC) stock narrower widths in the LHS? Looking for some color 8 LHS in a 12B.

    Also any place that stocks the color 8 wingtip boots on the plaza last with the commando sole in narrow widths would be appreciated - though I've inquire about those on here before and I think I have to resort to special orders.

    I was just looking at the Alden LHS on the Shoe Mart website. It says in bold red lettering that the "B" width is available thru them. Hope this helps.

    Very nice. Scotch grain perforated cap toe? Haven't read anything about Ground Gripper in this forum. How is their selection?

    I'd actually just ordered a bit of this from Hanger Project last week, so we'll see what more I can do. I ordered the Neutral, wanting to use it across my various colors while not wanting to get a bunch of individual jars. If it's that big of a benefit though, may have to consider individual colors.

    Thank you sir. Always envied your photographs as well.

    The modified last has that ultimate retro look. I couldn't believe how nice these were when I saw them.

    Anyone on the fence about this leather should jump - looks like Shoemart has a PT boot in it, Unionmade has an Indy in it and these are from Moulded Shoe. The proprietor said Alden does not have any more of it for production - only a lighter pebble. These have a fantastic reddish hue underneath the brown.

    I'm trying to convince the people at Saphir to extend this product line by adding the colors Whiskey and Ravello.
    Any interest out there in it?
    It would help me make my case with them.
