    I am making a move into mocha kid suede. Alden hq says it really does come from goats. I think it looks sharper than the regular stuff. Do have some C&J and EG calf suede.

    Big for me, since I have about 30 pairs of shells. But I bought some tassel moccasins at Brooks and am hooked. NST's from NRO (fingers crossed) are coming. Would like some UPL's, PTB's, chukkas, and other models. Any suggestions for suppliers?

    I thought the Mocha Kid Tassels were one of the only, if not only, Kid Suede models Alden makes. The rest is some other suede variety. No?

    Looking great. I wore the same today. And with the Nano spray from Leffot, I wasn't the least bit worried when the rain stared to come down today in Gotham city.

    NRO shows a plaza-lasted loafer in addition to NST's. It's a dynamite leather; I'm hoping there's more.

    First time posting in the wild shots, no idea if this works... Choco suede chukkas, braving the slight mist of NYC this evening. Cab shot

    Haha, good guess but it's actually from Fight Club. I just substituted the word dildo with dick.

    This page has various models in dark brown suede, but as far as I can tell only the aberdeen tassel and plaza loafer are designated as mocha kid suede. Kid suede comes from a goat, typically a young goat.

    This is what I thought of at first too, but I knew it wasn't the right reference. Still hilarious:

    Hm, you just made a sale. Looked at the Vimeo at Leffot and finally was convinced of a suitable protector.

    He's correct about the Plaza Slip-on. It is designated Mocha Kid in the link that you provided.

    Thoughts on the double cuff? These are new Flat Iron jeans and I can't decide if I should have them hemmed all the way or just shorted so that I could single cuff them instead of the double cuff as seen in the pic.

    I have exactly this same boot that has exactly the same tongue shift in only one boot. I am looking forward to seeing any suggestions. I realized the problem when my leg was getting rubbed raw because of the tongue shift.
