    Someone else mentioned cigar and given that I recently got lucky on the shortwings fro AoM, I was happy to hear that. My only reservation was the antique edge. But if I recall, the TSM model was also on antique. Good news indeed MrDV. Thanks.

    New Whiskey vs Older 4 years old Whiskey LHS's. I love the Orange tint in the older iteration.

    Thanks Shawnc. It was nice to wear them it had been a while. I have enjoyed the pics you have been sharing lately. Interesting story on the suits, congrats on the weight loss but sorry you shrank in height. ;). Have a good weekend

    Looking great DonL!
    Looking great in your Whiskey!!!
    Wow. I am also surprised to see all this Black Shoe distaste. But it is my general observation that this community typically dresses more buisiness casual to casual in their Aldens. Black Shell is a phenomenal color and material and is definitely under appreciated. I own the Semi-Brogue Balmoral, Perf Tip Balmoral, BB Wingtip, Tassel (in prod), Full-Strap, LHS, NST Blucher, Grant Indy, Ryden Boot (in prod) and CT Boot (in prod) all in Black Shell Cordovan. They are all fantastic and I would recommend any of those models.
    Your LWBs are looking terrific!
    Again, looking great in your Leffot LWBs! Very nice shine!
    Looking good in your Snuff LHSes. It's one of my most worn models. It's a terrific travel shoe!
    Your Ravello LHSes are looking great!
    I love the Whiskey LHS. It is fun to see the different shades due to patina.
    Looking good in your Cigars! I may wear mine tomorrow. Not sure yet! -Mike

    A fitting post for the handful of folks here that picked these up today. Looking good, DV.

    After getting no love for several months in the marketplace, I finally decided I would keep these boots. They are my first on the Plaza and I am totally smitten with the last.

    Looking superb in your Indy Boots!
    Your Whiskey PTBs are looking good. Darkened a bit, no?
    Yes! Another Plaza Fan! It is a truly great Last. Enjoy your boots, they are looking very nice. -Mike

    Ocho x Leffot on this Friday. About a dozen wears in on these. I'm not big on polishing my shells - I only do it if I'm going to wear a suit. Like the slight worn look.

    I picked up my first black shells (LHS) from eBay at a nice price. Fresh from Alden Restoration. Can't wait to receive them!

    I am absolutely loving Alden suede. Maiden voyage of snuff pic from the Bay. Hugs my feet like soft pillow.
