Chingis, Uncle Mac clearly has a "special relationship" with Alden.  And he does indeed carpet bomb not just this but at least four other threads, with pictures of his extraordinary range of Alden cordovan wear, on a daily basis.  As neither he nor Alden are affiliate vendors of the Forum, how he gets away with this shameless promotion is both a mystery and a matter of admiration for me.  We all get by the best we can!

 

One reason why this goes relatively unchallenged (I've also mentioned it before, although in less strident terms), is that he is absolutely never impolite, uniformly pleasant and positive about the contributions of others - regardless of brand/expense , responsive and constructive when questioned about something relevant, and of course a long standing fixture of Styleforum furniture.

 

I don't like all his shoes either, and if they were all I saw on here it would be a terribly boring place.  But there's nothing at all to dislike about the self-styled "Uncle" Mac, at least not that I've seen.  As for "circle-J", yeah surprisingly this forum does have a lot of cliques, pretentiousness, shallow pomposity, and a disproportionate ratio of inadequates, try-hards, bullshitters, fantasists and needle-dicked trolls.  But given the subject matter, what would you expect?  Try the "What Are You Wearing Right Now" thread for a real cultural revelation.  I dare you.  

 

Yet Mac is not any of those things, as far as I can see, and this particular thread is really quite nice.  Shoe people are the best.  Actually, on this forum, watch people are the best, but shoe people are the best of the clothes people.  So enjoy it; most of us are pretty  friendly really.  Oh, and if you don't have any argyll over-the-calf socks, then get some.  It will change your life. :)

 

In the mean time, I don't have any new shoes, so here are some old ones that I just like very much.  They are not Alden, not shell, and on a most elegant last in my humble opinion.  Have a great day.

 


thanks for the genuine post... Let me make it perfectly clear that I have no problem with Mac.  I also have no problem with argyles... I own a few myself, the whole combination of aldens, argyles, and uncle/nephews just got a little bit confusing/maddening.

Why the frown for 3 more pairs on the way?

 

These are way better than your larvae. Nice choice, wish I could afford.

Wearing the larvae today. Nice and comfy. Why the frown? You'd be frowning too if you dropped almost $8k on shoes in 6 months.

Well now that I know your'e wearing the larvae, the frown is perfectly understandable. I kid I kid.

 

Fuck. $8k on shoes in half a year. Yes I would frown. $8k on shoes and all of them black. I THINK that's a crime.
