I came across this Alden advertisement in a 1963 issue of the New Yorker. We often throw the word "classic" around when speaking of styles and this is a case where the shoe should really remain undated until the end of time. The style, in fact, seems to be the same shape as our custom Blackbird Black Sheep Squadron Airman Shoe which we had Alden make to our specifications forty-seven years after this ad ran. Really something that will stay with you for your entire life. We are running low on sizes of that particular model, but still have plenty of other options available here.
