    Bought my first pair of aldens this weekend, stock unlined brown suede chukkas, flex welt from my favorite menswear store in stl. Went TTS, 10d, they seem to fit perfectly. Out of curiosity, is the mac break in method prescribed only for shell? Want to Make sure they are as perfect as they seem before wearing outside. All help is appreciated from you more experienced sartorial folk.

    Don, looking great in your ravello LWB. Remember the Mac method involves walking on carpeting, not plywood. :)

    Break in method works for sure. This will keep the sole from wearing too quickly at the toe. Also maybe hit them with a little suede protector.

    Ok, so these are my first shell purchases, which were largely funded by money I shouldn't be spending right now, given the fact that I'm still in grad school...

    Each photo is a first time wear.

    And I'm hoping it doesn't get a little redundant with the #8 shell when my cap toe boots arrive sometime in August. :satisfied:

    Congratulations on some great acquisitions.

    It's great to have a lot of color 8. You'll love the cigar as well

    Black unlined cordovan dover PTB from Alden DC

    I'm really liking these. Surprisingly light and flexible for a cordovan shoe. The flat welt and single leather sole make it sleeker looking than your average PTB as well. I find the shape of the shoe suits black cordovan very well...

    I'm patiently waiting on mine as well. I'm also still waiting on my color #8 and brown alpine grain saddle shoes that I was hoping to get early in the spring.


    Very cool. Definitely seems a bit more adventurous than the vast majority of the Aldens on the market.
