    Whoa, for some reason your pic (albeit low quality) looks more appealing to me than the pics on LS's site. I hope my size is long gone by now because I'm still tempted and craving them. [​IMG]

    im 95% sure they are all sold out. he only had small sizes under 9 left to begin with. and i just happened to be a 8.5D. but yeah in the LSH pics they seem very bright like almost orange but the pic (iphone terrible quality) i think shows the richer, darker tone it has

    Alden 4x4 Seconds on eBay

    So somebody grabbed a pretty unique pair of seconds - the 4x4s that Tom made up. I'm not sure what this guy paid for them but it looks like he's anticipating a nice profit.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Alden-4-Shell-Co...item45f7f94ac6


    Went for $905 + shipping.

    Congrats to the seller.

    And my order's safely shipped, so I'll go ahead and post it - I was lucky enough to snag some cigar shell longwing bluchers from Shoemart, seconds - plus they were nice enough to apply the January sale since it was a phone order. Before anyone asks, there are no more cigar/whiskey/ravello longwings in any size as far as the phone rep could see. [​IMG]

    $350 + $10 shipping - is that about what Aldens cost in 1999? Sure, seconds, but if they turn out to be in good shape, I think I'm doing extremely, extremely well in my inflation-fighting! [​IMG]


    Please don't tell me these were in a 6.5E.

    Yeah, I read that when he posted. I'm .5 size smaller than you are. I hope the 8's are all gone!

    What are peoples thoughts on Alden light Tan Suede makeups, such as longwings? Are they a versatile color, and are they high maintenance at all considering the lightness of the color? Just having trouble imagining what they would go with....

    Is snuff suede perhaps much more versatile? My only thing is that they are perhaps a bit more autumn than spring...
