    Sounds good, sorry to ablige but could you provide a phone number to call? I looked it up from the Alden website and only found an address and no telephone number. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    about 8 ppl pmed [from diff forums] about how to order. they really are a nice looking pair [in person, as well]. in store, they were 365+NY tax= $397. as per [sakuraba], phone-in order is $365+10 [for shipping]:
    Thanks homie! I just placed an order. $ 365 + 10 for shipping. I would have gladly paid upwards of 500 plus for these. These shoes will improve my wardrobe by so much! Black shoes w/ a brown sole and white contrast stitching...genius. I can wear them with jeans and slacks. Thanks again

    Thanks for the info IIIrd Icon, much appreciated.


    GS, those look great and those laces, no way those came with the Aldens. Are they PS by any chance? I know you can usually get free laces from the PS store, just curious as I like actually like those laces with the shoes.

    they're the standard cordovan ones, not sure of model number

    I dont know if you remember but a few years ago there was a place in NYC that was going out of business and they were an official Alden retailer and had tons of stock they were clearing out, so they put their stock online for $330 for all their cordovan shoes, and they had near full runs of sizes. People thought it might be a joke or sketchy so I recall not many placing an order until their validity could be verified, but some of us jumped on them and we ended up getting our shoes shipped the next day via Fedex and all was kosher. Of course by then there was a mad dash to order shoes and everything was gone. IIRC someone on AAAC posted a phone # to the person that ran the store so I called and all seemed legit, which it was.
