post #6616 of 11793


Recon someone was interested in comparing the Modified last and 379x.
I think it shows the differences in shape quite well.

How many of you on this thread play golf??  We should do an Alden golf outing annually and have it rotate from from each of the various cities with Alden retailers.  DC, NYC, SF, Seattle, Philly, CT, Boston, etc...  There'd be great courses to play in all of those places!

I play and support this idea 1000%. I'm in Richmond VA and would be up for any eastern seaboard locale.

Just played this morning. Mizuno MP-69s, an older Callaway driver and 4-wood, and a late-90s Scotty/Titleist putter.

BB Tan suede LHS


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

 

As stylish and dapper as always Don, you are looking good in your uniquely lined LHSes. I always thought it was funny that Brooks does unlined shell and lined suede when everyone else does lined shell and unlined suede. Wonder why they line their suede LHSes.

Sort of interested to hear what others have to say on this one. I have JCrew loafer socks, they are okay. I know Kathy was really trying to get me into the Pantherella socks last time I was out there.

Those look great TB. I have a few of those darker spots, I think it will come out with brushing. Its this waxy like substance.

Just played this morning. Mizuno MP-69s, an older Callaway driver and 4-wood, and a late-90s Scotty/Titleist putter.

Played this morning also, although not very well. Titleist 915 driver, Rocketbalz tour 3 wood, Hogan Edge 2 iron hybrid, Titleist 712 CB-MB combo irons, Vockey Wedges, and Titleist studio select-Scotty Cameron putter (Newport 2).

Let's tee it up!!

Greatest idea, ever. I'd be in. Especially PA, NY, CT and MA. All in driving distance.

Let's tee it up!!

Constant lurker/infrequent poster here (only one pair of Alden, so far...) but as you can tell from my profile pic, golf is king even over shoes for me.  This idea sounds awesome and horrible (in a joking way, only because I've never been in an Alden store and I'd have to hide the wallet) at the same time.  But I'd be in.  All the areas with an Alden store are awesome for golf.

 

Second part of post.  My current boot line up includes Alden x J Crew Indy, Wolverine 1000k Centennial (brown) and 1000k brown suede, Wolverine Montague chelsea in both brown and black (should have got a sleeker design, but alas, you live and you learn), AE Dalton (oxblood), and AE Dundee 2.0 (black calf).  I'm really eyeing the Alden x J Crew Cap Toe Cordovan model.  This would be my first shell shoe/boot.  I'm completely open to other makes/models, but I'm pretty set on my next pair of boots being Alden.  The Indy is such a comfortable boot.  Also the pictures I've seen of the Cap Toe in real life are phenomenal.  

 

Suggestions welcome, and if golf talk continues, I'll be posting a helluva lot more :)

 

Cobra Fly Z+ driver and 4 wood, Ping Karsten 3h-uw, Ping Glide 54 and 58 wedges, Odyssey Works 2 ball fang.  (side note, went from playing MB/MC irons for about 10 years to these fatty irons and I couldn't be happier.  The profile took a bit to get used to but I'm so glad for the change.)

So many hidden gem courses in the valley. And for cheap too. Ha courses I'm paying $40-50 a round would be closer to $200 anywhere else (looking at you California)

I work across the street from a golf course.  Too bad that an Alden store isn't that close... (or within 500 miles...)
