    The Alden store here in DC just took delivery of unlined summer suedes, this year in navy and snuff. I grabbed a pair of the navy ones, barely missing a price increase from $437 to $456.
    Barrie last, flex sole. Unusual to find something like that among the staid regular collection.

    Hmm, these are both color 8 and ravello? [​IMG] Very nice NSTs -- is that self-colored stitching? Love that.

    thank you
    a very limited run according to the retailer


    Actually, a mistake according to Kathy at Alden DC (I also have a pair). Evidently the factory got the order wrong but the shoes came out okay!

    Last time I stopped in there she mentioned that she might re-order (I know, this is inconsistent with the comment of one of the authorities a few pages back announcing that the company owned stores don't do special make-ups).

    If any one is interested they ought to reach out to her and maybe that will help her decide.

    ^ I would definitely be in. Those shoes are on par with the RL Darlton wingtips in terms of class and style. Could you post a few pics of yours as well, HorseHide?

    On the plaza last - don't tell me, call Kathy (that is if you can squeeze in a call between your trips to Paris [​IMG] )

    Are the ones of the bottom right the burnished tan Barrie last shoes Winn Perry has up now? They were out of my size.
