    LWB on Aberdeen/Hampton/Plaza all would be fine with me, though I have only seen MTO LWB on Plaza (foo's one shoe thread)

    Can someone link me the "questionable" video of the ... hrm... cordovan fan... that was in the thread a while back? Mentioned the indecent video on another forum and had a request for it, but not sure where it was.

    Search YouTube for "Shell Cordovan love" it will be the first video. I'm surprised it has not been removed by YouTube...

    Thanks mediahound - I'll reference that.

    And for the record, I had described the premise of the video and another user didn't believe me... so not deliberately searching out teh nasty here.

    I completely understand your point. I think I was frustrated because I was looking for a kind of dress boot (non shell) that was sleek, but most of Alden is shell, and those not shell are mostly indy's/work boots. But you do have to admit that a very high percentage of Alden shoes are on the barrie last (compared to other companies that seem to not specialize in just one last).

    And the one that TSM has on hampton last is on back order until next april.

    Alden has numerous non-shell dress shoes, most of which are on the Hampton and Aberdeen lasts.

    What style and color are you looking for? captoe bal? captoe blucher? nst?

    oops. boot. meant to put dress boot.

    and I think I'm just going to pre order the one at TSM on hampton and wait for april. (only problem is, because i don't receive it until april, it makes me feel like i want to buy another shoe...no gratification yet haha)

    Get a Japan proxy and get a united arrows ravello longwing on the modified. About $1k I would have gotten a pair but they only go up to 9.5

    Trickers offers plenty of shell longwings too though its not horween.

    I like the contrasting laces. Are these typically in the shoe or did you swap them to match your shirt? Either way, nice combo.
