Hi guys, I'm Abdul and new to the forum here. I've been a fan of this site from afar for some time now. I have an engineering background and for some time I've been working to upgrade my wardrobe to a more professional look. My hobbies include coin collecting, reading current affairs and studying computer technology. I'm currently saving for my first luxury watch, which I've narrowed down to a Omega Speedmaster, Rolex Datejust II 41mm, or a Tag Heuer Carrera Day Date.
Hello everyone! I've been lurking on these forums before and after I bought my first pair of Alden shoes (Alden Cordovan Shell Longwing Bluchers Color Number 8). I'll post a review soon. I have been in the aerospace industry since 2001 on the avionics side. I love sports cars and motorcycles, and my brother recently introduced me to high quality dress shoes. I jumped from DSW dress shoes (they are cheap and comfortable, but don't last) to Cole Haan and now Alden. Clothing wise, I used to justify spending tons of money on D&G and Donna Karan, but these days I am a little more practical with Armani Exchange and Levis/Wrangler jeans. In the fall/winter, I like to wear a blazer with jeans (grey colored jacket) and a large collection of custom made dress shirts (made to measure). I am pretty settled in life (wife, house, dog, no kids...yet). She has converted me into a pretty big money saver, but I hope to pick up a few more Alden shoes (maybe Ravello shell, some suede shoes, etc) over time.
