It's still warm here in the southwest but I'm looking forward to imminent cooler temperatures and the transition from the summer suede into the fall cordovan. I've been wearing mostly the suede chukka, the suede Dover, and calf v-tips. The #8, Cigar, and Ravello have been gathering dust on the shelves since May.

Ok, which feet belong to the multimillionaire? This is from Seinfeld's online show on Crackle.com. On the left, David Letterman. On the right Jerry Seinfeld. So the answer is "Both". Any chance the boots are from Alden? If not, any ideas on the manufacturer?

I have an AR-1 turntable hooked up to some VTL tube amps and preamp with old Thiel speakers, and I'm looking for a new cartridge.
