    I've seen images like this with Alden shell but usually ones that are ancient and selling on ebay that go for under $100. I suspect those who purchase them are looking to recraft with Alden, if in fact they are old Aldens. Sorry you have to go through all of this. Hopefully TSM/Alden will be able to get it done.

    Uncle, I'm almost afraid to tell you... AE Dalton in walnut shell (sorry) and the 986; both are on the way.

    I had a similar experience a few months ago with Alden of NYC and my cigar PTB's. After a few hours of wear:

    Sent them back to Alden for a refinish. Got them back after about 3 weeks and after a few more hours of wear, they looked like this:

    Alden offered to refinish them a second time. I declined and asked them to send me these instead:

    Happy with my decision and even happier with the great service from the folks at Alden of NYC!

    +1. Never considered a SWB until now. Always preferred a bal or LWB. Very nice RTP!

    Hi


    Looking for some experienced advice on the breakin for the Alden PT suede boot. I purchased the Safari model, my first Alden, and had only tried the Indy before buying these. The 2 lasts are apples to oranges, with the Indy on the Barrie having a wider toe box. So my question is the fit feels snug but comfortable wearing them around the house (at the end of the day when the feet are most swollen). I hope they will stretch out a little more to be perfect. Does anyone have a suede PT boot that has broken in and will it stretch a little? a lot? I think the Plaza last looks great with the suede. I don't think i can go longer in size to get the extra width.


    Any experience/insight welcome


    DuckOB
