    Retail they go for $850 but RL has them every year and depending on the sale, they can drop from 25% to 40% (if not more >50% but then stock is pretty much gone by then). It's a different look and the shoe is more refined. I have the Marlow and a cigar LWB and there is enough difference between them.

    QUESTION: Has anyone had their Whiskey shell uppers re-done by Alden? I am curious if this would return the shell back to the original lighter shade.

    argentinoooooooooooooo, those are great.

    is it better to find your size available and decide wether you should pull the trigger? or is it better to find your size already sold out?

    i wear atom sw and barrie lwb with denim, they both look good with jeans. atoms are easier to dress up.
    i ran a quick google search, most alden fans seem to wear the same barrie and tremont size including tom from leather soul. buy your shoes before they sell out. they will sell out.

    Thanks a lot Mr.DV. I was VERY close pulling the trigger but remembered my April pre-order delivery with Leather Soul and I just purchased two pair of shells. I know I will regret this decision not buying Atoms.

    The best Alden last aesthetically, by far, IMO.

    Does anyone own the Alden for J Crew cap toe cordovan boots? How do they look in the wild, and how do they compare to other available boot offerings? Any information would be greatly appreciated. I've got a boot bug stuck up my you know what and the prescription is shell shopping. Thanks!
