    You have opened my eyes to a new world of luxury that has very quickly gone from a want to a need.

    neither, the left looks like the colors are faded/muted and not in a good way and the right is too dark to really show any color at all....I don't see either improving or adding to an outfit

    edit: if it's one or the other, go with the right.

    So guys, I walked into GW today just looking for some MOP buttons to harvest and I ran into this. What are these, and what would these go for? They are pristine condition but god, they are hideous. Am I right in thinking I may have hit thrifting gold with these?

    @ryangmode search ebay for sold listings to get an idea what they might fetch. At least do that much for yourself - it's pretty easy.

    Far as what model / style they are, that's a good question for this thread.

    Ive checked sold listings and there is nothing like this on there. I mean, generally Alden suede would fetch a couple hundred but these might be a different story. The model # is 1958E btw.

    Those are from Alden's orthopedic days. I have absolutely no idea on model or anything. There's been a pair of black boots on and off eBay for a few years now. They're always listed at some insane price.

    I would venture to guess those are 70s-ish, but someone definitely correct me if I'm wrong. The only place I've seen a pair in real life is at the Alden factory.

    Good luck!

    I would ask in the Alden thread - it's not a current model, and yes it's kinda fugly but people go for that. Found some in low top on a Japanese site for about $660 "new old stock", but they're unsold so that means nothing.

    Been looking for something to store ties in. Bought this today. Not 100% sure I like it. Thoughts?

    [​IMG]

    Do like the tie I found to put in it

    [​IMG]

    Thought this was cool as well. Small stain, but nothing an oxi clean soak can't handle
