Does your family still own the company, or did they sell out? Were you ever involved in the business? I have two pairs of French Shriner calf LWBs that I would consider as good as anything Alden is producing today. I'll post photos later in the week.
I'm not sure when they dropped Urner from their name, but Samuel P. Urner died in 1912; so I suspect it was before the 50's. BTW, Charles Shriner died in 1914, but he had a son who then took over the company.
What do you guys think of black leather bluchers with Olive chinos?
I prefer it for bluchers, but stick to bar lacing for balmorals
It seems that about everyone agrees that the number 1 and 2 suits should be navy and charcoal. My office is more casual; so is there a simialr consensus as to what the number 1 and 2 pant/sportcoat combinations should be?
The Strand is built on the 5 last, which as Allen Edmonds says is "best for a long, narrow foot." Maybe the Strand is not the model for you. Personally, I would not wear a shoe with a "v" like that.
Yes, but are they functional? Finished wood is not going to absorb moisture, which is one of the main reasons for using shoe trees.
I'd check out Sierra Trading Post

Sale starts on the 15th and runs through the end of the month. Cardholders can buy now. SA told me there probably won't be many sizes left by the 15th. I think they have some other AE styles reduced as well, but I was there near closing time and only had time to grab the strands and go.
