Alden Color 8 Alt Wien Boot
One of my favorite haberdasheries clearly has to be Epualet. Frankly, I first learned about Epaulet through my Alden brand discovery and outreach, but Epualet has become a lot more to me than just an Alden retailer. If you follow my Instagram feed, you will quickly realize that I wear more Epaulet slacks and trousers than any other brand. With that said, I am always excited to get back to my Epaulet roots, through their fine Alden footwear.
I would say that the quintessential shoe or boot from Epaulet has to be their Alt Wien line of shoes. The Alt Wien is essentially a Semi-Brogue pattern done on either a Boot or Blucher. Mike at Epaulet loves the Alt Wien pattern and has done it in as many different materials as I can pretty much think of. The King of the Alt Wien has to be the Shell Cordovan variant. This would make this particular model, the Color 8 Alt Wien Boot, the king of kings.
This Boot is made around the fit friendly, Barrie Last and features the amazing tan “antique” edge dressing. The Boot has a Flat, 360 degree welt and a leather outsole. For ease and convenience, the boot has Pull Tabs. This boot is very versatile and can be easily paired with nice Denim upto Slacks.
