I went to Interlochen Arts Academy for High School. I was really into classical percussion at the time and dreamed of playing on Broadway or in some orchestra. Alas, I made very few dollars playing marimba and the such so I started to focus on drum set. I love jazz (still do) so this was my forte. I did play the occasional rock gig. I also toured for a year with a brass quintet (think Dallas Brass with their percussionist). From there I got married and the rest is...
I've done a few things in the last decade. I went from full-time musician (drummer) to construction worker. I needed a job with insurance after I got married. I dug holes for telephone poles and did aerial construction for about 4 years while I completed a degree in theology. Then with no formal training at all I applied and got offered a construction engineering job for a communications company. This is when most of my shoe happened. I then left that job to enter...
I was an engineer before I went full-time in ministry. I still teach part time as an adjunct professor which is how I pay for clothes and such for me and my family.
Yeah, I like the AE shoe trees better than Alden ones because they fill out the toe area better. The Ruby shell captoes are the same pattern as yours on the Simpson last. The navy shell carminas are on the rain last. This is a little less than half of my shoes. I have three more Carminas and several more AE's and Aldens in a variety of calf and suede. I need to downsize and I'm finished buying shoes for a while.
It's nasty and rainy outside so I polished some of my shoes. I decided to take a partial family pic. Sorry they are such bad pics Here are my Allen Edmonds shell shoes. Walnut Dalton, Cap Dundee, Cap Jefferson, Brown Patriot, #8 Patriot, #8 Leeds, #8 Bradley, Black PA Here are all my shell shoes Top Row is same as above Alden: #8 Captoe Boot, Ravello WT Boot, Cigar Indy, Cigar LWB, #8 LWB Carmina: Blue Single Monk, Ruby Captoe
Email Paul and let him know. I've emailed him a few times and I've always gotten a personal response.
We are pretty similar in thinking. I bought the Dundees in cappuccino when they were offered by Allen Edmonds as a web gem. It's what made me want to do the Jefferson in that color.
Here is my MTO. Very close to mdubs' first MTO. This was one of the last Cappuccino orders HONOR REDISCOVER AMERICA SALE PRICE *CAPPUCCINO CORDOVAN *MOCHA MILLED LINING AND INSOLE *TONE ON TONE UPPER STITCH *CHILI REGULAR WELT *DARK BROWN TRANSPARENT EDGE DRESSING *WHEELED AND FUDGE WELT LINE *INDEPENDENCE SOLE AND HEEL
They are online but only in limited sizes. In the slim fit I need a 36 which the website doesn't even show as a possibility.
Has anyone seen the new Ludlow Fielding suit yet? I'm not digging the price but I like the design better than their regular suits. Higher button stance and wider lapels. I hope they start making more suits in this design. During the last Ludlow sale event I grabbed the light gray windowpane with peak lapels and ticket pocket. Should have it back from the tailor on Monday.
