There are also sweatshirt-style ribbed cuffs on the sleeves, sturdy snaps on the placket, and what's being called a "hunting pocket" zippered into the back. Available in October"

Perfect Fit: Alden of New England + Context Tanker Boot.

The Tanker's upper is made from Alden's black Novo Calfskin, which is an Analine Tannage calfskin leather finished to what Alden calls the "Bright Finish" giving it some luster. They are built on the Barry last, which is a last that was supplied to the military by the U.S. government from WW1 thru WW2. Context's Tanker Boot is made to Alden of New England standards which means they have a tempered steel shank that is precisely contoured and triple ribbed for extra strength.
