Money by Amis is a great, laugh-out-loud book.
Was able to pick up a few pairs of Aldens, all NIB with bags. They are: Plain toe blucher in burnished dark tan calf on Plaza last (2816) in 11.5D Plain toe blucher in black calf on Plaza last (2817) in 11.5D Plain toe blucher in black calf on Leydon last (968) in 11.5D I tried to make the shoes work but they don't; they are all a little too small. Willing to consider trade for 12Ds.
PSA for a Styleforum poster and a good guy. I just picked up a pair of Cortina (Italian made) longwings Ron had listed at ebay. They are on a sleeker, better looking last than my BBBF shell longwings and the shoes are finished very nicely. And, they are very comfortable. To me, the fit is similar to the Alden Plaza last. There are many pairs still listed for sale. Ron Rider shoes at ebay.

I just picked up a pair of AE Bradleys in burgandy shell from the shoe bank for $279. I'm unsure what sizes in the shoe are still available. The shoe was discontinued a couple of years ago but, per the AE rep, is being reintroduced this spring.

Unfortunately, no shell. Also, front page at website says TODAY ONLY (12/09).
