Shoes

Alden Longwing Blucher

Vendor: TheShoeMart
Model Number: 97891
Last: Barrie
Material: Whiskey Shell Cordovan
Special: This is the traditional exotic Longwing Blucher, made on the Barrie Last. It features the “Tan” Antique Edges and is an absolutely beautiful shoe.

Alden Shortwing Balmoral

Vendor: Alden of Washington D.C.
Model Number: 97285
Last: Tremont
Material: Whiskey Shell Cordovan
Special: To me, this is one of the perfect San Diego shoes. Between the formal pattern and the beautiful Whiskey Shell color and material, it is harder to find a shoe, that captures my style and the San Diego culture better than this one.

Alden Short Wing Blucher

Vendor: Harrison Ltd.
Model Number: 20481
Last: Aberdeen
Material: Whiskey Shell Cordovan
Special: Again, another great model, that is perfect for San Diego and elsewhere. This one is a little more practical than the Balmoral version, which is inherently enigmatic. This is a very rare shoe, and the run from Harrison was the first and only time that I have seen this shoe made!

Alden Plain Toe Blucher

Vendor: The Alden Shop (Alden of San Francisco)
Model Number: 9905
Last: Barrie
Material: Whiskey Shell Cordovan
Special: This is the traditional Alden PTB (990), but made in Whiskey Shell and has “Tan” Antique Edges. This is my favorite of the entire Plain Toe Blucher lineup. This shoe has been very evasive for me though!

This pair is from 2016.

This pair is from 2001.

Alden Cap Toe Balmoral

Vendor: Alden Madison (New York)
Model Number: 9064
Last: Hampton
Material: Whiskey Shell Cordovan
Special: This is a special makeup from Alden Madison. It’s a great combination of formal and casual, being a Whiskey Balmoral.


Loafers

Alden Leisure Hand-sewn

Vendor: CitiShoes
Model Number: 6746
Last: Van
Material: Whiskey Shell Cordovan
Special: The Leisure Hand-sewn is just a beautiful piece of footwear and the Whiskey color is just a terrific color on this model. This is one of the few models, in which I would endorse the entire “Shell Rainbow” on. This particular model has a dark welt.

Alden Unlined Leisure Hand-sewn

Vendor: Brooks Brothers
Model Number: 37790
Last: Van
Material: Unlined Whiskey Shell Cordovan
Special: This is a truly unique and limited shoe. This shoe is made by Brooks Brothers and is an Unlined version of the Traditional Leisure Hand-sewn Penny Loafer. These are very uncommon to find and frankly, I just got lucky with these. These loafers are a few years old, and their color has matured significantly over the past few years!

Note: This is one of, if not, my oldest and most worn Whiskey Shell Cordovan pair and they have darkened since purchase.


Alden Full-Strap Loafer

Vendor: Alden Madison (New York)
Model Number: 6831
Last: Van
Material: Whiskey Shell Cordovan
Special: This is a particularly uncommon model, but is a beautiful design. I love the Full-Strap loafer as well as the Leisure Hand-sewn model. I randomly ran into this pair just sitting there for me at Alden Madison when I visited the store. I guess that you sometimes never know what you will encounter sometimes.

Model Number: 1683
Last: Aberdeen
Material: Whiskey Shell Cordovan
Special: This is a particularly uncommon model, but is a beautiful design. This is a special makeup specifically for Alden Madison.
