    went on a terror recently and picked up a couple of little tank like Aldens and this pair. I've never really felt all that crazy about cordovan, but these may change my mind. Forgive my poor photo skills.

    the ones not in the pic Winn Perry, very nice too.

    Believe it or not the #8 Jumpers I got lucky with, they are IRR from Shoe Mart. Sheer luck.

    Best

    They look like cigar on the pictures... But that double leather sole will be the option I go for when the time to recraft mine comes... Love my LS crepes so far though...

    thank you
    i do highly recommend the double leather sole

    Nice shoes Mac!

    Once again evidence that Color 8 looks great with a Light Antique edge. That also looks like an extended edge if I'm not mistaken


    thank you
    you are correct

    My Ravello Wingtip Boots are shipping out tomorrow from Shoe Mart. It is going to be an agonizing wait, but a glorious day next week when I get them! That little glimpse in the picture makes my mouth water. Thanks for posting.

    the color variation you see isnt textured. in other words... the change in color makes it look like those parts of the surface are raised but its actually flat. my indys have that and it doesnt always show up in pictures. ill post a pic after work.

    so today i was looking at some aldens in store and i noticed the shell cordovans on the bottom said "genuine shell cordovan" instead of "horween shell cordovan"

    is this a new thing? old thing? or is it not horween for some pairs?

    I think they stopped doing that in 2006 or 2007. Probably was old stock.

    more questions:

    1) plaza last?

    2) did alden do the sole treatment (extended edge) or was it done by a local cobbler?

    these are great looking NST's
