    Does anyone know if alden will refuse to do their restoration on a shoe that had been topied? I know the rules aren't hard and fast but was wondering if anyone had experience with this
    I had topied chukkas restored recently (to commando sole), no problems.

    I am interested in getting a pair of Longwings in Cigar. Would it be suitable to wear with a navy and glen plaid suit?

    I have had a few different shoes restored, and I usually do it every two or three resolings from a local cobbler. Never any problem so since they are stripping it down and rebuilding, I can't see why there would be a problem.

    Wow. I don't love the contrast sole nearly as much as others but those are perfect. Also I love the matching eyelets

    looks like trickers

    I thought the exact same thing. The similarities of the eyelets, laces and edgetrim is too similar to not be intentional.

    I realize there are entire threads devoted to this question, but they are older...

    I need a dress belt (wearing with a suit) that matches whiskey shell and I only have tomorrow to find one. Can't order online. Any suggestions on where to find one/what to look for? I have a few malls and a bunch of other stores I can go to. I already tried 3 Brooks Brothers, including Madison Ave, and found nothing.
