    I'd be down for the color 8 alt wien boot on the plaza (I want it slimmer/more dressy than the Barrie) I think there's at least 4 people on this thread who have expressed interest just over the last 2-3 pages. Would just need 2 more.

    For $250 less and 3 day delivery (as opposed to a 1 year or longer wait), the creasing can tie you over until then. [​IMG]

    I love the patina that forms in the section between the line of the cap toe and the lacing. Starting to get that variation in color in my cap toe boots, beautiful... wear in great health my friend!

    ps the garbage can in the background doesn't help the look. [​IMG]

    Alden for DC #8 captoe boots in the office today...

    Lots of good tips. One more I'll add is be prepared to pull the trigger right away if something pops up. If you hesitate then someone else will swoop in and buy them. I've been able to purchase a ravello LWB and Alden of DC cigar captoe boot off of B&S and a cigar indy from J. Gilbert this way. Good luck.

    Its so funny I had my exotics before any regular shells. I walked into both pairs it wasn't until I began to participate in this forum that I realized how lucky I had been. 0 exotics since.

    With who?


    Yeah I had two Indy boots then got anatomica ravello and color 4 wingtip boots. Also almost got day trippers but held off on phone. Funny how it works out, beginners luck I guess

    This is a cross post from the suede thread, but since it deals with Alden, I'm asking it here as well:

    Provided I take proper care of a pair of Alden suede long wings, is the leather durable enough to allow the shoes to go through Alden's restoration program or will they be too junked up so as not to make restoration worthwhile?

    I knew shell certainly is, but I'd rather buy a less expensive pair of suede shoes if I can't have them resoled 1-2 times.

    Thanks.
