    I am also quite fond of those jeans, crosswound. Then I checked the price! haha. There are only certain things I can pay a lot of money for...jeans, for me, are not one of them. I really like them, tho. [​IMG]

    This is my first post. I just received a pair of Alden shoes I had recrafted/resoled by B. Nelson. I am very pleased with the results. The shoes are a pair of NST in black, more than 10 years old. I opted for the standard resole package, but I asked them to replace with a double sole because I prefer that finish. That is part of the reason I went with B. Nelson, rather than Alden. I assumed it would be difficult to customize in this way through Alden. Nick was very quick to respond upon receipt and the work was done in about 10 days. They did a very nice job. The experience really was first rate. I would have no hesitation using them again on other shoes and recommend them.

    tifosi. you can get lucky and get a used pair for a lot less most of the time it's barely used just a bit stretched. my 2nd pair i got for $60 shipped but it was used.

    also i have denim on 6years+ minus small repairs i think it is worth the money to invest.

    That ain't me wearing the jeans so tight the buttons barely made it to cover an exceedingly small waist and rear. I am physically incapable of wearing anything nearly so tight without offending the laws of nature and decency. I would not do that to the world.

    I agree, quality denim is a great investment. Haven't personally owned a pair for 6 years yet but the few I have are aging nicely so far.
