Imagine this in brown cordovan (probably with no medallion). Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

See latest posts for more info regarding the medallion.

Current exchange rate puts them at under $800.
Crockett & Jones cordovan for Alden money should be a no brainer.
Also, new trade legislation goes into effect the 10th (I think) raising duty free amount to $800.

 

 

I'd do it in a heartbeat if it was a regular Coniston boot in brown shell.  I'm not a big fan of broguing.  :(

I can wear an Aberdeen lace up, just not the loafers.  The Copley last pennies work a treat for me.  I'll check out Madison - thanks!

Mike, you make a STRONG case for the LHS. I've never wanted one (or 10) more than I do after your loafer posts.

Ha! Yeah, I made a spreadsheet to track my inventory and usage to theoretically try and help my purchasing decisions. It honestly hasn't helped me all that much as I am pretty sure anyone here could have guessed.

I don't have a copy on my phone. It should be in my photos that I uploaded to the original Alden thread.

Hah, thanks guys! The LHS is a great shoe and a terrific Sunday getup. I don't know what color is my favorite on the LHS, but those Cigars make a pretty compelling case. I am very fortunate to have all of the colors now as I will be adding a Color 8 back into the rotation probably next week. Someday I hope to find a 10C Black and 8 Unlined pair as well.

Speaking of LHSes. Snuff on their way to Aram for their needed heel replacement.

Congrats on your new purchase from Need Supply. Hope that you managed to sneak those in during their recent sale. That's a nice looking model and a great Cigar alternative. Enjoy them!
