    What is the going rate to resole a pair of aldens? Are there differences in cost depending on last and upper material?

    Marvelous! Just when I thought I have seen all the makeups these show up. Those Cigar NST chukka's are one of a kind. Just gorgeous. Are they on Aberdeen?

    This is sound advice, and tough to argue with. However, I would tip the scales in favor of the 990 (or the BB equivalent) as one's first Alden model. :hide:

    Hi all,

    Wanted to gauge the interest in this particular snuff suede Barrie last wingtip boot make up. I have a reputable vendor who is willing to make this given enough interest, however there will be a lengthy wait time (18 months at most). Details are below, please PM me only if you are seriously considering this.

    Material: Snuff suede
    Last: Barrie
    Style: wing tip boots
    Welt: Flat welt
    Edging: light antique edge
    Sole: double leather sole
    Eyelets: all brass eyelets

    Non-D length possible
    $100 deposit
    ETA is at max 18 months
    Need 8 to order

    Unfortunately there will be no changes to the above detail allowed! Image below is representative of the make up.

    Thanks,

    -D

    These Chukka's are great. Someone here has them in whiskey and I always admire them. Surprised they are not more popular.
