    I used the flash because the lighting is poor but they are just the way you describe, with a bit of red as well. The color is really deep.

    Hot dog, they look great. I wear them more than any other Aldens I have.

    your saddle with argyles are outstanding description of saddles
    Thank you, sir. I learn from the best. They are tan vegano calf with brown alpine grain calf. Leydon last. My first Leydons, so I wasn't sure how the fit would be, but I like the fit even better than the Barrie. Light and comfortable for the spring.

    What beauties! Alden seems to have improved the hue of cigar shell cordovan --- those don't look green/olive at all, but rather deep and rich dark brown. Like a rich, dark roux (that's gumbo roux for all you non-cooks).

    or a shrimp etouffee.. mmmm

    Those are laced so loosely they look like they'll slide right off.

    Would you guys agree with this chart?


    That chart originated here by member REguy. It's pretty accurate.
