    Guys, just received my Whiskey LHS from Alden SF.

    All I can say is wow. As Ferris Bueller once said, "It's so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up."

    Truly splendid, and one of two models, where Color 8 is (temporarily) uncrowned as King (other being Cigar LWB).

    I'll post pics once I wipe the drool off my loafers....

    I am really excited for my pair, I wish shipping to Canada was a bit quicker. I think mine will arrive next week.

    These look awesome! Congrats. Still pissed I waited to long.

    Does anyone know which Alden retailer may have some of these in the future in whiskey? Or is there really no way of knowing who and when?

    Thanks! Just called and they shipped it out. No order placed, just happened to call last week and they had my size (9.5D)

    Usually Alden SF, DC, NY and TSM tend to stock rare shells most often. Try calling every once in a while and you'll be surprised.

    Great loafers. I wish I didn't need a C width. I'm on Alden SF's list, so hopefully I'll own a pair eventually.

    thought i would share this as there are questions about alden suede periodically. got caught in the rain the other day.

    pic of the shoes when i first got home, rain drops are obvious:

    pic from the next morning, you can see some spots still there after the water dried

    and then after brushing with an allen edmonds suede cleaner thingy
    [​IMG]

    as you can see it all turned out well in the end. you can see up by the speed hooks that there is some dye transfer from my jeans, assumed that isn't going away but haven't really tried to remove it. i did spray these with suede protector when i first got them.

    How broken in were the jeans. Is it safe(er) to wear them with suede after they have been washed?

    Indigo stains occurred for me even after a couple of washes (jeans are over a year old).

    Hard to see the color with the glare, but that may the Alden x Epaulet color 8 "Brixton" boot . LeatherSoul did a similar boot as well. I don't believe either of those make-ups are in stock right now.

    I got that boot from Leather Sole about 2 years ago. #8 wingtip boot on Barrie last with antique edge trim. Might be my favorite Alden in my collection
