    Good to know they're still in the works--I started to wonder if I'd just dreamed them [​IMG]

    No, you didn't dream them up, but certainly worth dreaming about. Particularly if the chromexcel NST boots are any indication of what's to come!

    Just picked up my first pair of Alden's and noticed this little imperfection when I got home. It's much more noticeable in the photos, but still wondering if I should return them:

    Normally it wouldn't bother me, but this is also the first $500+ pair of shoes I've bought.

    Honestly, considering my track record with Alden and flaws I'd be pretty happy if that was the only issue with my new pair of shoes. Shouldn't much matter overall and the first time you re-sole/re-heel the shoes it will get taken care of. I'm damn picky about my stuff but I would keep that as whatever you get back may be even worse.

    Even with all their QC issues I can't help but love Alden shoes for some reason, I just wish they were more reliable in QC.

    Work a little black edge dressing in there and you won't be able to see it from more than 6" away.

    What's that arch on the back quarters called? Plain toe bluchers with that connecting bit look so much better than those without... the regular PTB's just look funny to me.
