    will alden, at your request, replace edge trim for you? after these, I feel like my number 8 long wings (and lhs) need this treatment.

    Some months ago Winn Perry did a run of the basic plain toe oxford in brown chromexcel, with a commando sole. (Picture below). Its a great, versatile shoe, and I wish I had grabbed a pair when I had the chance. Does anyone know of a different source for these? I wonder why they aren't made more often since they are so classic. The aniline pull-up version sold by The Shoe Mart isn't as nice.

    Wow, that's a great shoe. Yeah, I'd be interested in finding a pair as well. Commando sole is perfect for this.

    They were actually an ordering screw up.
    They were originally supposed to be longwings but something got messed up and Alden ended up sending PTBs.
    I had pre-ordered the LWBs. Winn Perry offerred a discount and some trees to those of us who pre-ordered.
