    Gentlemen,

    I know that a few people have alluded to this new, special makeup, but I thought it would be nice to share some additional pictures and information on it...

    Without further ado, it is the Alden x Tassels 8th Anniversary Edition Unlined Leisure Handsewn Loafer made of Unlined Color #2 Shell Cordovan.

    Yes, I realized that the shade of Color #2 is not for everyone, but still a pretty cool and unique makeup.

    A good choice my friend. One of my favorite boots. I enjoy the clashing of the famous Alden makeup in the Indy Boot with the more formal (and for me usable) makeup in the formal lasted Color 8 Shell Cordovan.

    not for everyone is right, only for a very fortunate few.
    recently learned the number "10.5" represents bad luck in many cultures... if anyone has a pair that size, you must get rid of them. i'll take that misfortune away from you, your family, your pets, and your nfl team.

    True to size (Barrie). Bought these for sloppy weather.

    Hello all,

    I recently picked up a pair of Aldens (Medallion Tip Bal) that are also stamped "Parisian" on the footbed. I am guessing that this is/was a retailer? I searched this thread but didn't find any mention of "Parisian" stamped Aldens.

    Does anyone know anything about these "Parisian" stamped Aldens? i.e., when were they produced? Any differences from the standard Aldens?

    Thanks :)

    Nothing wrong with them. Vendors of Alden shoes can do special orders and can change leathers, lasts, etc. Likely made for this shop.

    I was always mixed on #2 on the LWB (great color but not as crazy about the edge). However, no such ambivalence on the LHS. That's a great shoe Mike. Congrats on a very nice, and rare, pickup.
