Shell Cordovan may be Alden’s best known specialty, but they work beautifully with a wide variety of suedes and calfskins as well. One of our favorites is the burnished tan calf, a surprisingly soft and lightweight leather that we’ve used with a number of our styles.
It’s a very versatile color, great for spring but useful year round, perfect for denim as well as khakis, slacks, or a casual suit. The tan color will darken and build character with age, developing a deep and rich patina over the years.
We’ve just received two restocks in the burnished tan: the Atom Blucher and the George Boot. Both are versatile styles that can easily be dressed up or down.
