Hi Melquiad here!
I've been following some of the threads here for some time, educating myself. I really appreciate all the wisdom, humor, and expertise I've found here.
Just recently bought my first pairs of AE and Alden. They are semi-casual oxfords (since I work in the academia and I prefer a combination of relaxed elegance and approachability), but they sure look nice.
Also been learning about factory seconds, Alden irregulars, semi-annual sales, etc....
