This pair of color 8 longwings is one of our favorite Alden x Leffot shoes. The color 8 shell cordovan longwing is the “classic” Alden shoe, a monolith of American style and versatility. Our updated version is only slightly changed from the original, but the change makes all the difference.

Made with an antiqued sole edge and per-stitched reverse welt, the shoe is lustrous and sophisticated. Built on the Barrie last with oil soaked double waterlock soles for a softer, more flexible fit, they are sure to improve with age.

The Fold restock

A wise old gambler once said, “You gotta know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em.” Sage advice, no doubt, and exactly what our Fold wallets are all about.

These svelte sheaths are about as low tech as you can get: just a single piece of Horween shell cordovan, three folds, and voila — your cash is snugly secured in horse ass leather for safekeeping. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Small: 2.5″ x 2.75″ folded, fits U.S. Dollars and no credit cards
Large: 2.5″ x 3.5″ folded, fits all international currencies plus a credit card or two
