On the Street....Alden Cordovan, New York

With blue jeans, black jeans, grey flannels, or khakis, Alden cordovan shoes are so chic.

The color is exquisite and the quality/durability is world famous.

The difficulty is finding an Alden model that makes a good foot and has a toe that's not too rounded.

I had seen these wingtips before but I wasn't really sold on them until I saw this gentleman looking so respectable in them.

nice detail on the shoes

There's nothing sexier than a man with a great scarf, especially one with color.

 

Blogger kathy peck said ... (9:02 AM) : 

They're beautiful, and cordovan has always been an "under-used" color of leather. I still wear Bass loafers sometimes, because (for women) it's about the only cordovan shoe I can find. Very elegant man and great photo.

Great blue palette, love the deatiling on his coat.

Alden one of the few shoe/boot makers from New England still around that actually used goodyear welt before the Brits made famous and now is the most important shoe in Italy and Japan but try to get an American to buy it... I have taken at least 10 pairs for friends in Italy since is cheer here in the states but I do have to say thanks to J.Crew, UNION MADE and others at least some young guys here are getting in to them but still so under appreciated in USA. The color is actually color number 8 Cordovan is the hide (horse butt) for the readers info which you are right is perfect color but also see their color Cigar that is also fantastic as Cordovan makes a simple brown even nicer. Also on the round toe, it is perfect and lets leave the square toes for the EURO trash shoes make in Italy/China for the USA market only..

Anonymous Thor said ... (11:48 AM) : 

Nice shoes...

...just to clarify...Cordovan as is used by Alden refers to the leather- horse hide.

The color is #8 or burgundy.

Cordovan from Alden also comes in black, cigar, ravello, whiskey, #4 and probably a few others I missed...

Those shoes will last a life time.

 

Blogger Kyle said ... (11:55 AM) : 

I definitely love the color combination of the shoes, jacket and scarf. The pop of color on the scarf was a great choice! I also have been a big fan of toggle coats this season. I do agree with many here on the jeans though, although the color is great, they could definitely be pressed and maybe a half an inch to an inch longer. Besides that, great look!

My favourite pair from their range is the, Blk Alden Cordovan loafer.

I current pair is from Saks from around '95. Now, I just wear them as driving shoes. yet they still get compliments from street-guys who like fashion where I live around Brixton.

Just the other day, a very happy dude, who may have been a little high, told me "HIM (His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie) wore shoes from Lobb" as he nodded at my feet, and I told him these are from Chicago... and we both smiled...

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:08 PM) : 

Brooks Brothers, of all ppl, used to make a stellar cordovan brogue. Wonder if they still do? Not a fan of this guy's look. A prep-school kid could get away with this look with insouciant swag and, say, long, tousled hair or dreads/braids. On a grown man, it looks cute in quite the wrong way, not smooth. A grown man should either look smooth (Bryan Ferry) or knowingly wack (Lapo or Mickey Rourke). I think his jeans should be longer or, if this short, he should be wearing ankle boots. Too bad, he has a handsome face.

Yes,a fabulous pair of shoes can be the splash to any ensemble...and they are such a personal statement, too.

Hence, they are the drug of choice for the ladies.

When you find a pair of truly exceptional shoes, male or female, having them is like having a star that shines just for you whenever you wear them.

(Or is that just me rationalizing again?) ;)

Alden Longwings. The leather is from Horween, in Chicago, the only folks left in the U.S. doing the process, a vegetable tanning on horsehide from Cordoba, Spain. The true miracle is that when they get scuffed and look in need of a polish, a stiff brushing brings the oils out of the leather, and restores the finish. Comfortable as can be, but the strength of a steeltoe. Felt compelled to share, perhaps it's the season.

Blogger The Hype Around... said ... (2:22 AM) : 

The story here is the shoe. Alden represents probably the finest mid priced men's foot wear in the U S. At $580 it's a steal. The Cordovan is superbly made. I still have the Alden's that I bought five years ago. The detail on the shoe adds character to the otherwise staid but tasteful blue palette

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:48 AM) : 

I'm sure Alden shoes are excellent quality but, seriously, this man's brogues don't look any different from anyone else's brogues.

What is it that makes him stylish, other than the brand name, that is? The toggle coat with floods.

Blogger Lost in Provence said ... (5:31 AM) : 

I bought a pair of cordovan knee-high Prada boots in NYC five years ago that were marked down from $800 to 200 because nobody wanted them. Not Carrie Bradshaw enough apparently. I will have those suckers for the rest of my life--indestructible and only get better with time.

I have to agree with the others that those jeans are just too high water for me. You would think it would show off the shoe. Why doesn't it work?

 

Blogger Brummagem Joe said ... (8:24 AM) : 

Other than their legendary loafer the best looking shoe in Alden Cordovan is the plain captoe blucher. This brogue is a little over ornamented for my taste. But the plain captoe with years of wear and fading, brushed with preferably dry brushes (maybe occasional neutral shoe cream) acquires a magnificent rich patina which looks knockout with grey flannels or brown pants.

@Lost in Florence

I agree that the look doesn't quite work. Why? I think the proportions are off. The coat seems a little too long and, overall, too big for the man.

Or maybe it's as simple as men with short legs shouldn't wear floods (or pants that sit low on the hips) because they shorten the legs even more.

Cannot deny the classic Duffle coat. I prefer Gloverall with a pair of Havanna Joe Spanish leather oxfords and an wool blackwatch scarf. These are necessity for life in Buffalo NY.

I like the 'highwater' look with denim. It allows you to show off those handsome brogues. The 'highwater' is quite common in the UK.... it's only those-who-know in the US. Alden's, Trickers, Crocket & Jones, Lodger, Loake, George Cleverley, Edward Greene, Church, John Lobb..... I need my fix

 

Anonymous Paul (UK) said ... (3:10 PM) : 

Great shot, he'd look top on a UK street! I think us Brits can claim the original Duffle design from wartime naval coats and classic brands like Gloverall.
Cordovan is actually a type of leather rather than a style or colour...(but love the deep burgundy anyway)
There's a small but dedicated UK following of classic US shoe makers like Alden and Florsheims, (only for he who knows!) despite us having Loake, Grenson, Trickers etc here (and Church's in my home town!)
A thoughtful shot as always - thanks Scott!

The shoes are perfect. Its amazing and wonderful to me that the trend in men's wear has returned to beautiful, hand made goods and these shoes are the show piece for that ethos. Jeans should never be pressed, and although I like the length, I think they would benefit even from a small cuff to break up the blue of the pant and sock. It would show off the shoe, but add a bit more texrture down there. That's just me though.

Every guy should pay attention to this for a casual-inspired look. Jeans, sweatshirt and sneakers get old.

Check out the shoe store J. Gilbert, several locations including Seattle, for custom Aldens with a more pointed toe. Just bought a pair of the sexist Cognac colored lace ups. Cheers.

Actually, I love the duffle coat but the shoes are a bit on the ordinary side - would prefer some suedes with this outfit!

The shoes are great.
But sorry, these trouser urgently need some proper ironing. They look awful that way.

wearing the wolverine 1000 mile bradley wing tips. made in the usa and very durable.

J.Crew carries great Alden shoes, esp their wingtip models. If you can fork over the dough (upwards of 200, sometimes 300 dollars) they're are truly the best in durable and respectable footwear.

Great outfit all the way through, and suitable, since I believe this gentleman is one of the top CEO's of a swedish top clothing label!

Have a good one everybody!

my husband wore these shoes and i am so happy to show the photograph to my daughter who follows your site since he passed when she was two. This is just one of the little ways i can share a bit of him with her 22 years later. Fun to have a fresh detail for her. You are mentioned in an article on her blog today at inslee.net
